Ford and Chevrolet admittedly have a lot in common—both were started here in the United States over 100 years ago with a focus on building affordable cars for the average man. Even today, both companies continue to have similarities, with both headquartered in Michigan and both offering extensive lineups.
However, when you start to look at the details, the differences come out. Looking at its business history and practices, Ford is one of the largest family-owned businesses in the world. Meanwhile, Chevrolet is part of General Motors, a publicly traded company. Additionally, Ford also did not accept government assistance during the financial crisis almost 10 years ago.
Looking at specific models, even more differences start to emerge. We’ll start with the Ford F-150—the best-selling vehicle in America.
Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado
Ford Fusion vs. Chevy Malibu
Another great Ford car is the mid-size Fusion. It has some of the most attractive styling of any car on the road today. But, the Fusion isn’t just about looks. It is packed with great features, including Sync 3 technology and lots of space for passengers. On the other side is the Chevrolet Malibu. While it is a respectable sedan priced similarly to the Fusion, it doesn’t offer nearly as much value as the Fusion. The Malibu may look good on the outside, but compared to the Fusion, its handling and comfort just does not stack up.
Ford Mustang vs. Chevy Camaro
On the performance car front, Ford stands out once again with the Mustang. This rivalry goes back over 50 years and has always been up for debate, but it’s clear that the Mustang is the current holder for the performance car title. The Mustang was the original pony car that started the performance vehicle craze in 1964 and has led it ever since. Chevrolet quickly followed with the Camaro, but over the years has always been a step behind the ‘Stang. The Mustang has the power, maneuverability and style to hold the title of best sports car, and as the winner of Kelley Blue Book’s kbb.com 5-Year Cost to Own Award, this title is well deserved!
