2016 Ford Taurus Interior

There are very few vehicles on the road that can compare to the legendary reputation of the Ford Taurus. This model has been an iconic part of the blue oval automaker’s lineup since 1986 when it originally debuted. People have always loved this vehicle for its great combination of luxury, style, performance and comfort. Ford has exceeded our expectations with the Taurus once again for the 2016 model year. The new 2016 Ford Taurus is a vehicle that demands attention, and it has been receiving rave reviews from everyone who has got behind the wheel so far.

As we stated earlier, there are very few vehicles that can even compare to the iconic status of the Taurus. However, there is no shortage of competitors that attempt to challenge its dominance. One of the vehicles that competes against the Taurus each and every year for market share is Kia’s Cadenza model. We truly believe that the Taurus is miles ahead of the Cadenza. Therefore, we have decided to prove it by matching up the specifications of the 2016 Ford Taurus vs 2016 Kia Cadenza and comparing them.

2016 Ford Taurus: Big and Bold

One of the most clear and obvious ways that the new 2016 Ford Taurus is superior to the 2016 Kia Cadenza is with its overall value. The 2016 Ford Taurus is absolutely packed with innovative new features, both standard and available. Some of the features that are offered on the Taurus are: Sync 3 infotainment, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Lane-Keeping System and much more. The standard and available features offered on the Kia Cadenza do not even come close to what is offered with the Taurus. When you combine all of that with the fact that the 2016 Ford Taurus has a price tag that is thousands of dollars less than the Cadenza, it’s obvious that the Taurus offers much more value to consumers.

The Ford Taurus is considered a mid-luxury vehicle by most people. However, it comes with a budget price tag. The Taurus is loaded with premium amenities, soft-touch surfaces and offers one of the smoothest rides in its class. All of those attributes are huge selling point to potential car shoppers in the full size sedan segment. On the other hand, the 2016 Kia Cadenza has a cheaper overall feel than the Taurus, so it doesn't even come close to matching the quality of the new 2016 Ford Taurus.

Anyone in the market for a full size sedan would be wise to not overlook the new 2016 Ford Taurus. We’re very confident that this vehicle will exceed all of your expectations. Feel free to stop in and see us here at Dahl Ford to ask additional questions or to set up a test drive.
