The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Dodge Charger is starting to show its age against many of its rivals, but its muscle-car appeal and low pricing will never get old. The 2010 Ford Taurus punches up Ford’s reputation for quality and features, with an engaging new SHO model to boost.
