Ford vs. Chevy: which is better for you? This has been a long-standing rivalry in the automotive world — one that’s raged for a century, in fact! Even today, the Ford vs. Chevy trucks debate lives on, with the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado standing as top contenders.
Aficionados of both brands give each one the title of ultimate victor in the car, truck, and SUV sectors, which can make it difficult to discern real results. What does the data say about each brand ranks on key categories? Check out how the two brands rank in key categories below, then contact us here at Beaver Chevrolet near Orange Park for test drive to formulate your own review today!
Chevrolet boasts three models competing within the 2020 small cars class: the fully-electric Bolt EV, Spark, and Sonic. The Bolt earned a U.S. News overall score 7.8, the Sonic an eight out of 10, and the Sonic hasn’t been fully crash-tested. Ford, with its discontinued Focus and Fiesta models, lacks any 2020 models in this category.
How do these vehicles drive? You’ll find that the Bolt is quick, fuel-efficient, and nimble as you’re cruising. The Sonic is a sporty drive, with a roomy cabin, impressive technology, and ample cargo space. The Spark also features great handling and boasts impressive tech at a competitive price!
Chevrolet not only knocks it out of the park within the small-car segment, but boasts an impressive three-row Traverse and two-row Blazer competing against Ford rivals: the seven-passenger Explorer and five-passenger Edge.
While both Ford and Chevy deliver solid models, the Traverse is well-known for its generous cargo space, spacious cabin, and smooth road handling. The Blazer is a fuel-efficient option with nimble handling. You’ll find impressive infotainment systems on both Chevy models for those commutes in Ponte Vedra and Jacksonville Beach!
The famed Ford vs. Chevy trucks debate remains the subject of a heated feud, with each brand delivering solid tow ratings, extended and crew cab options, and two-door cab models. Both Ford and Chevy trucks range from luxury to work-ready functional models. The Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Silverado are top contenders in this segment, with each offering incredible performance, features, and towing capacity.
You’ll find that the Chevy Silverado engine choices are nearly as powerful as the F-150’s, and turbodiesel engine even delivers enhanced fuel economy compared to the F-150. What’s more, the Silverado interior is spacious, and the Silverado offers smooth handling around Mandarin and Callahan!
With such long-standing feuds as Ford vs. Chevy and, in particular, Ford vs. Chevy trucks, real results can get lost in the heat of emotion. However, now that you’ve had a solid look at each, it’s easy to see why Chevy has remained in the race for so long. With its total conquest against Ford in the small cars and midsize SUVs segments, as well as its comparable offerings in the full size pickup truck segment, you can be sure that Chevy offers what you need and so much more across the market!
