The rivalry between Chevrolet and Ford is known to all. But, it all began when both Chevrolet Series 490 and Ford Model T launched in 1916. Over the years, both car manufacturers have made promising competitive models like the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang. But, ultimately, the choice of car is dependent on consumers. However, there are numerous areas in which the Chevrolet vehicles have topped over the Ford models. Let us shed some light on the same.
The Chevrolet line-ups showcase better reliability over the Ford automobiles and trucks under the J.D.Power report. The scorecard ratings depend on unbiased owner’s first reviews and feedbacks. The dependability depends on the past three year’s owner experiences.
While most reviewers appreciate the interiors of both the cars and many of the interiors look alike both Ford and Chevrolet cars, the latter still takes over the former with many of its models. For example, according to the U.S. News and World Report, the Chevrolet Traverse got an 8.9 rating out of 10. This score is one of the highest scores for a model in its class.
Both organizations who check for safety in cars, the IIHS and the NHTSA, have been conducting crash tests for safety detection of the Ford and Chevrolet models over the years. As per the U.S.News report, the average safety score of both Chevrolet and Ford models as per the NHTSA and IIHS is 9 and 9.2, respectively. Undeniably, we can say that the safety of both manufacturer vehicles is very close to each other.
All Chevrolet and Ford models cater to high-tech features, such as an infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, etc. However, many Chevrolet models come with technologies for crash avoidance, such as assistance features like an emergency braking assist, forward collision warning, etc. in comparison to the Ford models.
Upper Edge in Subcompact Category
The Ford EcoSport subcompact SUV might have obtained 6.5 out of 10 in the U.S. News and World Report and had the upper hand over the Chevrolet Spark that got a 6.1 score in the interiors section. However, Chevrolet Trax certainly overpowered the Ford EcoSport under general safety and convenience features. Features like forward-collision warning, etc. are lacking in the Ford EcoSport; however, they are available as standard 2020 Chevrolet Trax.
Traditionally Less Expensive
Since 1916, the Chevrolet vehicles have had a lower market price in the U.S. and other countries in comparison to the Ford trims. For example, the 1916 Chevrolet “Four-Ninety” has a much lower cost than the 1916 Ford Model T. Similarly, in 1967, the value of the Chevrolet Camaro was $2450. Meanwhile, the base price of the Ford Mustang began at $2,567. The lower price differential of the Chevrolet vehicles isn’t ignorable in the compact & Midsize SUV sections as well as the midsize sedans, and large pickup trucks categories.
Besides all of these noticeable features, the Chevrolet cars rank higher in electric & hybrid cars, luxury sports cars, subcompacts, midsize SUVs, and powerful engine sections. Therefore, we can say that Chevrolet models have triumphed over the Ford cars in many areas over the past few decades.
