2014 Chevy Impala LTZ vs. 2014 Ford Taurus Limited
The 2014 Chevy Impala LTZ vs. 2014 Ford Taurus Limited
At Tom Gill Chevrolet, we think that the new 2014 Chevy Impala is hard to beat when it comes down to full-size sedan comfort, convenience, and performance. Another competitor is the 2014 Ford Taurus, but we’d still go with the Impala. Here are a few reasons why.
Efficiency and Performance
The Impala simply has the Ford beat when it comes to fuel economy. The base Impala is rated at 31 mpg on the highway and the 21 mpg in the city, while the Taurus is rated at 29 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in the city. If you compare the Impala 2LTZ to the Taurus, you see that they both get exactly the same fuel economy ratings, but the Impala cranks out 305 hp and 264 lb-ft of torque. That’s a bit more than the 288 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque from the Taurus.
Comfort and Convenience
If you’re searching for a full-size sedan then you’re no doubt concerned about comfort and space. Compared to the Taurus, you get more front headroom, more front hip room, more front legroom, more rear legroom, in the Impala. While both of these sedans come well equipped, you can expect to find a few more standard comfort and convenience features in the Impala. The Impala gets a rear climate control, a heated driver seat, keyless vehicle start, passenger lumbar support, and a tire pressure monitoring system, all standard. None of those are standard equipment on the Taurus.
Warranty and Protection
The Impala simply comes with more coverage. They both get bumper-to-bumper coverage for 36,000 miles and 3 years. The powertrain and drivetrain on the Taurus are covered for 60,000 miles and 5 years, but on the Impala you’re covered for 100,000 miles and five years. The Impala is also covered for rust for 36,000 miles and 3 years, and the Taurus isn’t covered at all. The Impala is also covered for 100,000 miles or five years for roadside assistance, while the Taurus only gets 60,000 miles and five years.
