Chrysler 300 vs Ford Taurus

Chrysler 300 vs. Ford Taurus - Side by Side Comparison

The full-size, four door, five passenger sedan segment is a hot one as America's car buyers continue to crave roominess, and comfort but still desire great performance and mileage. Two cars that often top the list and are worth comparing are the Chrysler 300 and the Ford Taurus.

Ford Taurus

One of the best selling models in Ford's history, the previously mid-sized Taurus was upgraded in size for the 2010 model to replace the discontinued Ford 500. Available in four different trims, including the performance model "SHO," the base engine is a 288 horsepower, 3.5 L 24 valve DOHC six cylinder, married to a six speed automatic transmission and front wheel drive. EPA estimated combined mileage can be expected in the 23 mpg range.

With the exception of manual A/C, AM / FM / CD radio, and power accessories, the Taurus price can mount quickly as you add options or move up the trim ladder.�

Chrysler 300

Positioned more towards the luxury segment than a standard�family sedan, the Chrysler 300 offers five different models, including two limited edition designer influenced trims. An eight speed automatic transmission sends torque to the rear wheel drive model from a 3.6 L V6 with close to 300 horsepower. Highway mileage can be expected to top 30 mpg. An AWD option is available, engaged full time, and hands free, it�keeps your 300 on the road even in the toughest weather.

The touch screen UConnect panel allows you to access your entire digital music library, via USB or Bluetooth connection. Available GPS can be accessed from the same panel. The upgraded BeatsAudio�system, exclusive to Chrysler, provides you with the power and fidelity to have an awesome entertainment experience on the road.

Heated eight-way leather power seats with lumbar support provide a smooth ride for the driver and front seat passenger.�


You can buy just a family sedan, or you can tote your family in luxurious comfort in the Chrysler 300. With superior standard appointments, more head, leg, and hip room in both the front and back seats, and less weight than the Taurus, resulting in more efficient operation, the 300 takes this match up.
