2015 Chevy Impala vs 2015 Ford Taurus
A flagship sedan is, perhaps, the most important vehicle in a lineup. Of course in brands like Chevy and Ford it might not get the most attention, as they have vehicles like the Camaro and Mustang to soak up the spotlight. But for the most part, a flagship sedan sits atop. For Chevy, that title belongs to the Impala, a vehicle that has been around for nearly as long as the Camaro. It actually debuted earlier than the Camaro, but took several years off throughout its lifespan. We wanted to take a closer look at our flagship sedan to see how it stacks up against perhaps it’s biggest rival, with the 2015 Chevy Impala vs 2015 Ford Taurus.
Advantages of the 2015 Chevy Impala
As you can see from the table above, both vehicles are extremely similar. In terms of interior volume, they have nearly the same amount of space, though that extra 1.5 cubic feet in the 2015 Chevy Impala will be nice for your passengers to stretch out it in. Where the real differences come into play comes down to whether you prefer an advantage in fuel economy or power ratings.
Because on one side you have the 2015 Chevy Impala, which utilizes 1.2 fewer litres per 100 kilometres through city streets like right here in Edmonton, and a half litre less per 100 kilometres on the highway. At 11.2 l/100km city and 7.6 l/100km highway, the Chevy Impala is plenty efficient for a full-size sedan. But, if you’re more of a power driver, you like to feel every horse when you push down the pedal, then the extra 93 horsepower might be the way to go for you.
But if you would prefer better fuel efficiency then choose the 2015 Chevy Impala. And if you do, don’t forget to schedule a test drive right here on our website or give us a call with any additional questions. We can’t wait to get you behind the wheel of your next new car.
