2015 Chevy Impala
2015 Ford Taurus
The 2015 Chevrolet Impala and the 2015 Ford Taurus are both American made, large sedans that provide drivers with comfort, convenience, and the latest features. They’re both favorites, likely to please many drivers who want full size comfort, at a very reasonable price. So if you’re thinking of purchasing one of these sedans, read on to see which one will be a better value for your money.
- Fuel Economy: The standard Impala comes with a smaller 2.5L four-cylinder engine that yields an impressive EPA estimate of 31 mpg highway and 21 mpg city. The Taurus is not even available with an efficient four-cylinder option, so the most efficient version is only capable of up to 29 mpg city and 19 mpg highway according to the EPA.
- Power: If a V6 engine is a must, and you value performance over fuel economy, then you still want the Impala. It can be had with a 3.5L V6 good for 305 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. The V6 in the Taurus is only rated at 288 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque. And you’ll be happy to know that the V6 Impala still matches the fuel economy of the V6 Taurus.
- Warranty Coverage: When you drive home in the Impala you know your powertrain is covered by a warranty that lasts 100,000-miles/5-years. Roadside assistance coverage is the same length with the Impala. The Ford Taurus only offers 60,000-miles/5-years of both.
- Telematics: Every Impala comes with the high-tech OnStar telematics and 4G LTE wireless connectivity with in-car WiFi hotspot. There’s no feature like that in the Ford Taurus.
- Safety: The Impala equipped with Advanced Safety Package and Forward Collision Alert is rated at Superior when it comes to Front Crash Prevention according to the IIHS. The Ford Taurus only achieves the Basic rating, the second lowest rating, according to that organization.
