  • Edmunds on the Taurus: “Among the Taurus’ liabilities, however, we count poor outward visibility, interior materials that fall short of today’s expectations and ponderous handling. […] We suggest shoppers look into alternatives.”

  • Edmunds on the Impala: “It certainly has the big-car basics down, what with its roomy interior, smooth ride and trunk large enough to relocate a small village. But we also appreciate the Impala’s technology.”
