Comparison: Chevy vs. Ford
When it comes to American automakers, no competitors routinely beat out the competition like Chevy and Ford. Both companies have a history of exceptional engineering and design, answering the needs of American drivers and innovating their vehicles, equipment, and technologies at every turn. No matter which Ford or Chevy model you choose, you’ll be blown away by the vehicle’s American-made performance, dependability, and smarts.
Both Chevy and Ford are known for their powerful and sophisticated engines. For the 2018 model year, Chevy and Ford engines took home various best-in-class titles and were lauded from all corners of the auto industry. The 2018 F-150 offered six incredible engine options to drivers, and many of them were updated – or introduced – for the new model year. For instance, Ford introduced the 3.0-liter Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel engine that delivers best-in-class diesel horsepower, best-in-class diesel torque, best-in-class diesel towing and payload, and best-in-class fuel economy. The Chevy Silverado, on the other hand, won the title of the most dependable and longest-lasting pickup on the road, and the 2018 model earned the title for best-in-class V8 horsepower and best-in-class available V8 fuel economy. Chevy also earned numerous awards from J.D. Power, verifying the dependability of its vehicles across its lineup.
Both Chevy and Ford introduced state-of-the-art driver assist and safety technologies in 2018, marking their places at the forefront of automotive innovation. Ford introduced the new Ford Co-Pilot360™ system, which is the most advanced suite of standard driver-assist technologies among full-line brands in North America. In the next couple of years, this smart system will roll out across Ford’s lineup.
Chevy made huge, industry-leading strides in safety over the past few years, taking a comprehensive approach to safety that aims to “prevent, protect, respond.” It introduced an array of state-of-the-art features – like Forward Collision Alert, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Lane Keeping/Departure Warnings, Adaptive Cruise Control, and more – designed to optimize passenger safety while on the go.
