Ford and Chevrolet are two of the most familiar mainstream car brands, thanks to their reliability, power, and overall comfort. So, if you’re shopping for a new vehicle, or have ever wondered how these automakers’ cars compare, Beach Ford has done the homework for you. Below, we’ve compared Ford vs. Chevy trucks, SUVs, and sedans. Read on to see how they differ!

2019 Ford F-150 vs. 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The Ford F-150 offers five V6 and V8 engine options, which range from 290 to 450 hp. The Chevy Silverado 1500 offers three — ranging from 310 to 420 hp. Additionally, the F-150 has a max. towing capacity of 13,200 pounds while the Silverado tows 12,500 pounds.

2019 Ford Explorer vs. 2019 Chevrolet Traverse

Unlike the Chevy Traverse, the Ford Explorer offers a 365-hp 3.5L V6 engine, giving you greater performance on Myrtle Beach roads. The Explorer also has the advantage of available Ford Sync 3, which Edmunds calls “one of the easiest touchscreen tech interfaces to use.” Options like leather with quilted seats and a Sony audio system are also Explorer exclusives.

Ford Edge vs. Chevrolet Equinox

The Ford Edge offers 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind its first-row seats, while the Chevy Equinox offers just 63.5. Evasive Steering Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering are also available for the Edge — not the Equinox.

Ford Mustang vs. Chevrolet Camaro

At its base level, the Chevy Camaro generates 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The entry-level Ford Mustang, on the other hand, produces 310 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Florence drivers can also expect exclusives like adaptive cruise control, MyMode, and a B&O PLAY Premium Audio System.

Ford vs. Chevy: Certified Pre-Owned Programs

Another area where Ford and Chevy differ is their CPO programs. Whether you’re buying a full-size truck or compact sedan, you’ll get great benefits from either program, such as 24-hour roadside assistance, CPO financing options, vehicle history reports, and 172-point inspections. Unlike Chevy’s, however, Ford CPO vehicles offer the following benefits:

  • 7-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty Coverage
  • 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Warranty from the time of purchase
  • 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
  • Up to $50 for lockout assistance
  • Fuel delivery of up to 2 gallons if you run out of gas
