Chicago and Manteno drivers comparing the 2015 Ford Taurus to the 2015 Chevrolet Impala are invariably impressed by the former’s long list of standard and available features, superior engine lineup, and indulgent interior of the Taurus. The new Impala is an acceptable vehicle, but it can’t just compete when judged head-to-head against the Taurus.
The 2015 Ford Taurus is available in four stunning trim levels:
The 2015 Chevrolet Impala starts at $27,060 – marginally more than the 2015 Ford Taurus. However, several standard features – such as a rearview camera – are absent, and upper-level trims fail to live up to the astonishing performance promised by the Taurus SHO.
The 2015 Ford Taurus offers three engines to the Impala's two, allowing Chicago and Manteno drivers to meet their own unique driving needs:
The 2015 Chevrolet Impala offers less choice and less power. The standard 2.5L ECOTEC tops out at 196 hp, while the 3.6L DOHC V6 delivers a maximum of 305 hp. Not just outperformed in terms of output, the new Impala also fails to provide an all-wheel-drive option.
The 2015 Ford Taurus embraces an aerodynamic design characterized by a large grille, flowing lines, and an athletic profile. As expected, it continues to impress once you slip inside. With a total interior volume of 122.3 cubic feet, the 2015 Ford Taurus provides space for up to five passengers to stretch out and relax, while also boasting 20.1 cubic feet of trunk space — appreciably more than the 2015 Impala’s 18.8 cubic feet.
Ford’s attention to detail is evident across every trim level, but the SHO model benefits from its own unique styling. Leather-trimmed seats are finished in Charcoal Black with Mayan Gray Miko suede inserts and embroidered logos, while extended thigh-support cushions enhance comfort. It’s a level of comfort that can’t be matched by the 2015 Chevrolet Impala.
The 2015 Ford Taurus enhances its generous level of cabin space by offering numerous available features that can’t be enjoyed by those driving the 2015 Chevrolet Impala:
Both the 2015 Ford Taurus and the 2015 Chevrolet Impala offer a comprehensive list of safety equipment, with cutting-edge systems such as:
However, the Impala fails to delivers when it comes to standard safety equipment. Unlike the 2015 Taurus, a rearview camera and engine immobilizer aren’t included across all trim levels. This makes reversing more hazardous and compromises the security of your vehicle.
