2018 Toyota Camry vs. 2017 Ford Taurus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Camry offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Ford Taurus with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Camry and the Ford Taurus in the front seats.

Convenience
The Toyota Camry will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Taurus, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Toyota Camry is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Toyota Camry and the Ford Taurus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Camry is much slimmer than the Ford Taurus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Toyota Camry, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Taurus.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Camry has much less torque than the Ford Taurus, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Toyota Camry 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 Toyota Camry is significantly less powerful than the Ford Taurus. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

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