When you’re trying to choose a capable, efficient sedan for your next new vehicle, it can be easy to get caught up in the barrage of new models that seem to be cropping up all the time, and if you’re not careful you can end up being taken for a ride – and not the good kind. Sometimes it’s wise to stick to models that have been around long enough to earn their keep, with modern updates that bring them squarely into the current generation of modern car options. Two such choices that may have caught your attention are the 2015 Buick LaCrosse as well as the latest Ford Taurus model.
Which one’s got more of what you’re looking for? Today’s comparison between the 2015 Buick LaCrosse vs 2015 Ford Taurus should help you take a closer look at what’s offered on each of the two popular sedans.
One thing to keep in mind is that essentially you’re dealing with a vastly different engine situation from one model to the other. On the LaCrosse you’ve got a Hybrid Electric 2.4-liter and on the Taurus you’ve got a V6. Clearly the LaCrosse will have a fuel economy advantage just like the Taurus will offer more in the way of horsepower and torque, so the next thing you can look at is how much you can do with that power, and you’ll see that the max trailer weight for both models is actually the same. When it comes to the basic warranty, the LaCrosse has the Taurus beat by 12 months/14,000 miles, which can definitely add up over the lifespan of a vehicle.
