TCC’s Bottom Line
The image-building 2013 Chrysler 300 is handsome and classy, as well as a proper luxury car or a scorching muscle sedan. 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.
