Is Ford Better Than Chevy?

Ford Fusion Plug-In Hybrid Titanium 

Is Ford better than Chevy? The team at Basil Ford certainly thinks so, but we understand that both Ford and Chevy are very popular brands. However, we're certain that Buffalo drivers will agree when they see each brand's SUVs and trucks side-by-side. In the market for a reliable used car? Ford and Chevy have strong certified pre-owned programs, but the facts prove that Ford's is simply better.

Ford vs. Chevy: Trucks

Whether you need a truck for the worksite or an off-road adventure, there's a greater chance of the Ford F-150 getting the job done than the Chevrolet Silverado 1500. For one, the F-150 boasts a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds, as compared with the Silverado 1500's 12,500-pounds capacity. And that's not to mention the off-road prowess available with the Ford F-150 Raptor, with no true comparison in the Chevy Silverado 1500 lineup.

More interested in a pickup that serves as a daily driver? The Ford Ranger comes out ahead of the Chevy Colorado, without question. The Ranger churns out more power from the introductory engine, has a stronger payload rating, and achieves superior city fuel economy than the Colorado.

Ford vs. Chevy: SUVs

The Ford brand is renowned for its commitment to developing revolutionary SUVs, and as such, it should come as no surprise that its crossover SUV lineup simply outclasses that of Chevrolet. Take the Ford Escape and Chevy Equinox, for example. The Escape's cargo volume measures 68 cubic feet, as compared with the Equinox's 63.9 cubic feet total. Cheektowaga drivers will certainly appreciate the extra space for road trips.

Ford vs. Chevy: Certified Pre-Owned Programs

Clearly Ford models prove themselves superior to Chevy models, but how do their certified pre-owned programs stack up? They both provide Amherst drivers with roadside assistance, special financing options, vehicle history reports, and more. However, purchasing a Ford CPO vehicle affords the following benefits:

  • 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty (as compared with the Chevrolet 6-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty)
  • Travel expense reimbursement of up to $500 per day for as many as three days in the event of a breakdown
  • Rental car reimbursement of up to $30 per day for as many as five days (if overnight repairs are needed)
  • Destination expense assistance of up to $75 for emergency transportation
