2016 Ford Taurus vs. 2017 Toyota Camry Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Ford Taurus than in the Toyota Camry, due to the Ford Taurus's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Ford Taurus and the Toyota Camry in the front seats.

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). The Ford Taurus will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Camry, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Taurus will cost more in transportation costs than the Toyota Camry.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Taurus is much wider than the Toyota Camry, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Taurus, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota Camry.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Ford Taurus has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Camry. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford Taurus and the Toyota Camry. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford Taurus will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Camry.

Warranty
The Ford Taurus comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Camry.
