2014 Dodge Charger vs. 2014 Ford Taurus Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Dodge Charger offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Ford Taurus. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Charger and the Ford Taurus in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Ford Taurus you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Charger, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Charger will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Taurus. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Charger is much higher than that for the Ford Taurus.

Dimensions
The Dodge Charger is a little narrower than the Ford Taurus, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Dodge Charger takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Taurus.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Charger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Ford Taurus.

Handling
The Dodge Charger has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Taurus, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger is somewhat more powerful than the Ford Taurus.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Charger and the Ford Taurus. The Dodge Charger has significantly less cargo room than the Ford Taurus, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Dodge Charger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Taurus.
