Large Car Sedan Showdown: 2014 Ford Taurus vs 2014 Chevrolet Impala vs 2013 Toyota Avalon

2014 Ford Taurus Limited

2014 Ford Taurus Limited

The 2014 Ford Taurus is winning over more consumers and reviewers with impressive engine capability as well as great gas mileage.

The 2014 Ford Taurus is now available at ReedHasIt.com (Serving Texas and Oklahoma). We put together a short comparison video of the top competitors in the affordable large car category. The Ford Taurus faces off with 2014 Chevrolet Impala LTZ, and the 2013 Toyota Avalon XLE because the 2014 model is not yet available.

The Ford Taurus leads the pack in engine performance with a 2.0 liter EcoBoost I-4 engine that packs the power of a V-6 engine and the efficiency of a 4 cylinder engine. The Taurus touts the best in class fuel economy for full size sedans with 22 city 32 highway and 26 combined miles per gallon.

The Avalon and Impala fall short with the Avalon’s 25 combined miles per gallon and the Impala with only 22 combined miles per gallon.

When you are looking for a new car you want the latest and greatest technology right? Once again the Ford Taurus takes charge in this area including BLIS® with Cross Traffic Alert, Push-Button Start, and SYNC® with MyFord Touch® including an 8-inch color LCD touch screen. The Toyota Avalon has Entune with a 6.1-inch touch-screen and an 8 speaker sound system. The worst of the bunch is the Impala with Chevrolet MyLink and optional navigation system with some reviewers say the rearview camera resolution is poor.

When you take a step inside these full-size cars you will notice ample interior features. The Ford Taurus has standard heated and cooled seats, optional rear heated seats, more front and rear hip room, and class exclusive Multi-Contour Active Motion Front Seats that has a 6-way lumbar and subtle rolling-pattern massage providing a more relaxed drive.

Reviewers say the Avalon’s cabin boasts an attractive interior design and premium materials, which gives it an upscale feel. The redesigned interior of the Chevy Impala has gained positive reviews but some have noted some shortcomings, such as flimsy plastics on the center console, which detract from the premium feel.

All three cars were crash tested and given a 5 Star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Toyota Avalon and Chevrolet Impala put up a good fight but it looks like The Ford Taurus will be taking home the championship belt. So when you’re ready for your test-drive, visit us online at ReedHasIt.com

Ford and Lincoln Gain Momentum as Consumer Choice

Ford Fusion

Ford Fusion help boost August growth in sales.

Ford is on a roll!  According to WardsAutoFord is continuing its sales momentum with an 8.1% gain in August on a daily-rate basis, and the outlook for Ford, is looking even better.

With the average age of vehicles on U.S. roads pushing 11 years, the publication says consumers are looking to replace their old cars. In addition, since many have higher mileage vehicles, the option of a new car, truck or SUV can be even more appealing.

“When consumers come in (to dealerships), they have the choice of high-mileage used vehicles or new vehicles with low interest rates,” Ken Czubay, Ford sales chief said. He said that he believes that will help sustain and build momentum of new-vehicle sales.

So, how popular is the Ford lineup?  Ford sold 216,017 vehicles in August, with 79% of those deliveries representing retail sales. That is the highest percentage since 2006.

Small vehicles are big! Overall Ford small-car deliveries were up 30%, compared with year-ago with the Fiesta surging 55.7% and Focus rising 3.0%.

Other hot sellers include the Fusion and Explorer. These vehicles posted increases of 9.6% and 8.7%, respectively. The Fusion’s performance marked its best-ever August/

Ford says things could have been even better for the Focus, Fusion and Explorer but there were inventory  constraints. There is good news, Ford recently began production of the Fusion at its Flat Rock, MI, assembly plant to boost inventory.

As for the ever-popular Ford F-Series pickup, it was another great month. Sales climbed 18.6%, compared with like-2012, to 66,728 units.

Look at Lincoln

According to WardsAuto, things are looking good for Lincoln’s MKZ. Once again, it was the volume leader with 3,652 deliveries, a 5.8% year-over-year increase. The MKS and Navigator were up 7.3% and 9.3%, respectively.
