Going to a Charger forum and asking if they prefer that car is like going to Buffalo wild wings and asking them who makes the best wings. . .

LOL.


Read reviews of both. Read the common problems for both. Test drive both. Decide which one fits you better.

I own a 2012 Charger R/T. Over the summer I rented a brand new 2013 Ford Taurus since thats all they had. It was one of the worst rental cars I ever had not to mention the radio and ride sucked. Never again. Any Charger is heads and shoulders above that new Taurus.

These two cars are a great comparo. If I were a Ford guy my answer would be obvious but alas Dodge is my flavour of coffee. (Charger has an edge on the looks front)

due to a design flaw, the interior of the Taurus is cramped. Chrysler did a better packaging job.

I drove both and felt more comfortable in the charger. I also just liked the feel/look of the charger better.

Well IMO I think the Ford Taurus is a POS, accept for the SHO, the interior is not that great, and the exterior looks like just another car. Plus FWD or RWD, I gotta vote RWD, which may not be the best option for snow, but , even in NY you get more dry roads, than snowy roads!

The Charger looks much better that's for sure. Another thing to consider is value. Compare Charger and Taurus with similar HP and the Charger wins hands down. It is not unusual to see a Taurus SEL in the mid 30s with it's 280 HP V6. For the same money you can get a nicely equipped R/T with the Hemi at 370 HP. Want 360 HP in a Taurus, you have to get an SHO and they are in the low to mid $40K range. No thanks.

2013 R/T AWD fully optioned, MSRP $47600 Cdn.
2013 SRT fully optioned, MSRP $51800 Cdn.
2013 Taurus SHO AWD fully optioned, MSRP $ 59900.
Based on this information alone, it should be an easy decision I should think.
