If you’re in the market for a new family sedan, Ford gives you some great options to choose from. Both the full-size Ford Taurus and the midsize Ford Fusion bring a lot of great qualities to the table. These cars are comfortable, safe, and stylish. You can also take advantage of the available high-performance trims. Let’s see how the 2018 Ford Taurus compares to the 2018 Ford Fusion.
As you can see, the V6-equipped Taurus has more power on tap. However, choosing the Fusion’s base four-cylinder engine will reward you with extra fuel savings. The extra power under the hood of the Taurus ensures quicker acceleration off the line. But, most people will be more than happy with the Fusion’s performance capabilities. While the Taurus SHO packs more horsepower, the lighter Fusion Sport has more torque. On the road, you won’t notice a big difference in performance. Both can hit 60 mph in around 5.3 seconds, which is quick enough to keep pace with many of today's sports cars.
In terms of total passenger space, the Fusion is just a bit roomier than the Taurus. However, both cars can comfortably accommodate up to five passengers. The Ford Taurus has one of the largest trunks in the class, which is great for the drivers who need to haul around extra stuff. On the other hand, the Fusion’s trunk will suit the needs of most families.
The Ford Taurus is obviously longer than the Ford Fusion. If you live in the city, the Fusion’s shorter length will be an advantage. The Fusion’s tighter turning radius will help with parking. However, keep in mind that both cars can be equipped with an automated parking system.
A lot of car shoppers have a hard time choosing between the 2018 Ford Taurus and the 2018 Ford Fusion. To obtain a real-world comparison of these two sedans, contact J.C. Lewis Ford Savannah to request a test drive.
