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.
I have a name for the 3 new mods...............Druken Purple Pirates!!!

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.
