2014 Ford Taurus vs. 2014 Nissan Maxima
Are you interested in purchasing a capable, efficient sedan that’s loaded with a wide variety of standard and available amenities? If so, there’s no better choice than the 2014 Ford Taurus, currently available at River View Ford in Oswego, your local Plainfield and Yorkville area Ford dealer. Other popular models in this segment like the 2014 Nissan Maxima certainly have a lot to offer, but when you look at the head-to-head comparison below, you’ll see that it clearly doesn’t stack up to Ford’s sedan. Just take a look!
- Fuel Efficiency: For urban drivers, the 2014 Ford Taurus will save a significant amount of money at the pump, with an estimated 29 mpg city rating from its standard 3.5L V6 under the hood. The 2014 Nissan Maxima achieves an inferior 26 mpg city rating with its standard 3.5L V6 engine, and it also requires the use of premium gas, which is usually much more expensive.
- Safety and Handling: In order to help prevent accidents and reduce distracted driving, the 2014 Ford Taurus can come with an available forward collision warning system. If the front bumper-mounted sensors detect an impending crash, audiovisual cues will warn the driver to brake or maneuver quickly. The new Ford Taurus also offers available all-wheel-drive for optimum traction during those blustery Midwestern winters. Nissan did not feel that these were essential features, as the Maxima does not offer all-wheel-drive or any kind of forward collision warning system.
- Convenience Features: Thanks to the available vehicle remote starting system that the 2014 Ford Taurus offers, drivers can wait indoors where it’s warm and dry before getting into their car. The available Active Park Assist feature also allows the new Ford Taurus to parallel park itself with minimal driver input. The 2014 Nissan Maxima does not offer remote start or an automatic parking system, and you’ll be missing those features during the winter and when you’re trying to fit into a tight squeeze.
