SCOTTSBORO, Ala., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As drivers have made a noticeable shift toward lighter and leaner vehicles, full-size sedans have undergone something of a renaissance as well. The resounding call for higher fuel efficiency and greater environmental responsibility has yielded vehicles that are at once powerful and practical, and two noteworthy examples of this development are now drawing automotive enthusiasts to Harbin Auto in Scottsboro, Ala. The 2014 models of the Chevy Impala and Ford Taurus are now available at the Northern Alabama dealership, lending credence to the belief that the full-size sedan segment is as strong as ever.

Redesigned for the new model year, the 2014 Chevy Impala is thoroughly modern while making a clever nod to its iconic roots. Thrilling performance and excellent fuel economy go hand in hand on the latest Impala, as shoppers can now choose between two distinctly innovative powertrain options. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine comes standard, delivering 195 horsepower along with an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated 31 mpg on the highway. Meanwhile, drivers may upgrade to a 305-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 option, which boasts a zero-to-sixty time of under seven seconds while achieving an excellent 28 highway mpg. Regardless of powertrain, the attractive interior cabin and muscular design of the 2014 Chevy Impala is impossible to ignore.

Equally attractive is the competing 2014 Ford Taurus, the flagship sedan for The Blue Oval. The Taurus boasts a similarly high-output fleet of powertrain choices, beginning with the standard 3.5-liter V6 engine capable of 288 horsepower and 29 highway mpg. Drivers who place high premium on fuel-efficiency might prefer the available 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivering 32 highway mpg, while the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 found on the SHO trim roars off the line with a zero-to-sixty time of under six seconds. Equal parts family sedan and compelling high-performance machine, the 2014 Ford Taurus receives high marks from commuters and long-distance travelers alike.

Both the 2014 Chevy Impala and the 2014 Ford Taurus are now available at Harbin Automotive, located in the community of Scottsboro and serving the neighboring locales of Huntsville and Chattanooga. The dealer encourages interested shoppers to visit the dealership for further details. The dealer may also be contacted online at www.harbinautomotive.com, or by telephone at 866-559-8384.
