The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Dodge Charger hits all the right blue-collar chords, yet its interior may impress the upper crust. The 2013 Ford Taurus gets improved performance and is more of a technology and luxury flagship than ever--although its 'smaller inside' packaging continues to limit its appeal.
