2014 Chrysler 300 vs. 2014 Ford Taurus

While compact cars are certainly getting more popular at our Chrysler dealership near Moose Jaw, there’s still a lot to love about a full-size like the 2014 Chrysler 300. The 300 provides commanding performance and a comfortable, luxury-accented cabin outfitted with today’s latest technology.

Competing with the Chrysler 300 is the 2014 Ford Taurus, another full-size sedan that’s very family oriented. Which one is the better buy? Let’s take a look.

Performance

Besides luxury, the 2014 Chrysler 300 is highly focused on performance with three different engines. Chrysler begins the 300 engine lineup with a 3.6L V6 producing 292 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. The Ford Taurus’s starting 3.5L V6 is underpowered at 288 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque.

The Taurus’s best engine is a 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 capable of 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. While a lot of power, it’s no match for the 2014 Chrysler 300 SRT8 with a 6.4L V8 delivering 470 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. In terms of speed, there’s going to be about a second difference in the time it takes to go zero to 100 kph.

Vehicle Features

The Taurus offers a spacious and comfortable interior, but if you want a car that’s thoroughly modern, the Chrysler 300 is going to give you more. Just look at the base 300. It features an 8.4-inch touchscreen interface, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio, keyless entry/ignition, heated front seats, and leather upholstery. None of those features come standard on the Ford Taurus and remember: that’s just the first trim.

Rear Passenger Space

A major benefit of choosing a full-size sedan is they offer lots of room for the driver and passengers. Just remember they don’t all offer the same measurements. Compared to the 2014 Taurus, the Chrysler 300 sedan has more hip, head, leg, and shoulder room. If you routinely drive around adults in the back, this is going to be very important.
