2018 Ford Fusion vs. 2018 Ford Taurus: Head to Head

Ford Fusion
2 of 14


Winner: 2018 Ford Fusion

The Fusion’s starting price of $22,120 is $5,475 less than the least-costly Taurus. That the Fusion is less costly would seem to be inevitable, since it is the smaller of the two cars.

In addition to its larger size, the Taurus also comes standard with a V6 engine, as opposed to the lackluster base 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that powers the Fusion. Both models offer powertrain upgrades, however, and when higher trim lines and options are specified, the prices of both vehicles rise significantly. Yet the Fusion, even in its top trim level, which starts at $38,895, undercuts the high-performance Taurus SHO, with its starting price of $42,770.
