Comparing the 2015 Buick Regal vs. 2015 Ford Taurus is a bit of oddity among comparisons done by Palmen GM. the 2015 Taurus is the latest in a long line of highly respected and capable full-size sedan and the 2015 Regal is one of the most refined and comfortable mid-size sedans currently wearing the Buick badge. However, recent changes and improvements to the new Regal have brought these two outstanding vehicles to take aim at one another. The recent upgrades to the performance and equipment list make the 2015 Regal a strong competitor for almost any vehicle, not just the 2015 Ford Taurus.
Comparing the 2015 Buick Regal vs. 2015 Ford Taurus properly has to be done in a careful manner. For instance, by the simple nature of the 2015 Taurus being a physically larger vehicle, it is going to offer a bit more room than what the 2015 Regal has. However, those same dimension are going to come back to haunt the 2015 Taurus in terms of maneuverability. A common note about dimensions of the Taurus, is that it might have lots of room but moving the car through corners reveals its true size.
