Ford Taurus
big car ford taurus
Base price: $26,700
MPG: 19 city / 29 hwy, with base V6

The Taurus is a really good car that offers the look and feel of a luxury automobile at the price of a Ford, albeit a relatively expensive Ford (F, Fortune 500). Still, It's taken some criticism for being a big car that doesn't seem quite so big inside. It's also taken shots for not feeling quite as light on its feet as some of the others.

There's some truth in all that, especially as the competition keeps getting tougher. But, really, the Taurus is still a great car. It's just not quite as great as some of the others in this gallery.
