Top 10 Large Sedans With the Greatest Range

5. Ford Taurus 2.0-liter EcoBoost - 608 Miles

Edging out the Chrysler twins by about 16 miles of total driving range is Ford’s versatile Taurus. In its most efficient form this front-wheel-drive car is powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. With a turbocharger and direct fuel injection it delivers a V6-like 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard across the board.

The Taurus can take on up to 19 gallons of petroleum distillates in a single sitting. With a highway fuel-economy score of 32 that yields a total range of 608 miles as well as a mid-pack finish in this comparison.

    What about the 2013 Nissan Altima 4-cylinder???  Or is that not considered a “large sedan” It gets 684 miles to a tank on highway.

    How about a kia Optima. I rented one for a week and whenever I filled it up driving it across the country it gave me a range of about 520. Tie for last place?

    Quick facts direct from the EPA fuel economy website, the Nissan Maxima, Honda Accord, VW Passat, Buick lacrosse and all new smaller Toyota Avalon Hybrid are not classified as large, They are all classified as midsize! The Maxima is in fact smaller inside then the midsize Altima.

    I think that compare diesel engines with engines to gasoline or hybrid it is wrong, they should compare them each one is its category of motorization

    FYI, the gas version of the Passat would’ve placed 4th, along with the diesel version still at #1.
