Everyone on this forum hates Chargers..........all joking aside I dont think a car specific forum is a good place to get an unbiased might read some threads around the forum to see what problems owners have had....and do the same at a Taurus opinion is both cars are great with each having it's own little issues.....

Putting the snide comments aside, I would honestly drive both and make a decision based on that. If your looking for high performance, the Charger has more to offer in both the R/T and SRT packages. If your looking for gas milage and comfort, the Charger has 31 mpg w/the 8spd and the 300hp V6. I am not sure how the Taurus stands up to that. We have Taurus's at work and they are nice cars, but I give the edge to the Charger for styling as the Taurus has that bland "every other car" styling" that seems to pervade these days. Of course, I am biased, so go with whatever matches your style best.

As far as which is more dependable, I think any new car is built pretty reliable from the factory, barring you don't get a lemon. JMHO, Tom

Does FWD vs. RWD matter much to you? Some folks strongly prefer one or the other.

Both have models available with AWD, too!

Personally, I think the new 300 would be a closer comparo to the Taurus.

Prior to 2011 MY cars, I'd say the Charger had the nicer exterior, but the Taurus has the nicer interior.

2011+, I'd say they are tied for interior styling and feel, but still give the Charger the strong win for Exterior styling.
