Chicago and Manteno drivers often compare the 2015 Ford Taurus to the 2015 Chrysler 300 when they’re searching for a luxurious sedan. At Terry’s Ford of Peotone, we’re confident that the 2015 Taurus can soundly outclass the competition, so we decided to compare the two ourselves to ensure that the Ford still comes out on top.
The 2015 Ford Taurus is offered in four trim levels, with each one catering to a certain type of Chicago and Manteno driver:
With the S model starting at $31,570, the 2015 Chrysler 300 will cost at least $4,500 more than the 2015 Ford Taurus. Models work their way up to the $42,395 300C Platinum, which fails to provide a standard engine with the same power as the SHO, instead demanding extra for an available alternative.
Ford is known for offering a varied selection of engines for each vehicle they produce, and the 2015 Taurus is no exception. Three engine choices allow Chicago and Manteno drivers to find their perfect blend of performance and economy:
The 2015 Chrysler 300 is available with two engines: a 3.6L Pentastar V6 and a 5.7L HEMI. The available HEMI boasts slightly less power than the Ford’s 3.5L Ecoboost – with a horsepower rating of 363 – while the standard Pentastar’s 292 hp only marginally outclasses the 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 in the Taurus. However, neither comes close to matching the Taurus in terms of efficiency, with a maximum of 19 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
The cabin of the 2015 Taurus enjoys the high standard of design and noticeable attention to detail that Manteno drivers have come to expect. It’s also relatively spacious, especially when it comes to cargo room. While the 2015 Chrysler 300 offers 16.3 cubic feet to store all your luggage, the 2015 Ford Taurus supplies a vastly more generous 20.1 cubic feet.
Of course, that space is complemented by a number of premium features as standard, with the Ford offering a ParkView Rear Back-Up Camera for confident reversing, unlike the 2015 Chrysler 300. You’d think the excess of over $4,500 needed to move from Taurus to the 300 would have covered the cost.
In addition to its enviable list of standard features, the 2015 Ford Taurus also benefits from a varied selection of optional features that aren’t available with the 2015 Chrysler 300.
Both the 2015 Ford Taurus and the 2015 Chrysler 300 are equipped with a vast range of safety features as standard. However, the Taurus pulls ahead by offering a number of additional driver-assistance system designed to keep you from harm, including:
