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.
