For years, the Ford Taurus has remained one of the most rewarding cars in the class. Not only is the Taurus comfortable and remarkably safe, but it also packs ample performance. Exciting features, such as Ford’s high-resolution Sync 3 infotainment system, further enhance your driving experience. Let’s see how the 2018 Ford Taurus fares against the 2018 Honda Accord.
When it comes to performance specs, the Ford Taurus delivers:
For 2018, the Taurus comes standard with a muscular V6 engine. It pumps out a healthy 288 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. Although the Accord’s base four-cylinder engine is peppy, it only develops 192 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. Ford tweaked the Taurus SHO's 3.5L EcoBoost engine to kick out an exhilarating 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Available all-wheel drive gives the Taurus yet another advantage over the Accord.
The Ford Taurus is perfect for family road trips. Its trunk provides a class-leading 20.1 cubic feet of cargo space. Like the Taurus, the Accord comes loaded with a lot of popular features. Although Honda’s infotainment system has improved, it’s still a step behind Ford’s Sync 3 interface. Designed to make the driver’s job easier, Ford’s automated parallel parking system is a feature that you won’t find on the new Accord.
These sedans provide excellent crash protection. The Taurus received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. You’ll travel with an extra peace of mind. While the Honda Accord provides several driver-assist technologies, some don’t perform as well during real-world situations. The Accord’s forward collision warning system is very sensitive. Its adaptive cruise control system also occasionally reacts to neighboring lanes on curves. These issues may take away from your driving enjoyment.
The Ford Taurus wins this head-to-head battle with the 2018 Honda Accord. To experience everything that the Taurus has to offer, contact your local Ford dealer to schedule a test drive at J.C. Lewis Ford Savannah!
