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. Is Ford better than Chevy? Read on to see how they differ!

2021 Ford F-150 vs. 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The Ford F-150 boasts a six-engine lineup that delivers the performance you need from your truck. The new 3.5L PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 engine combines the power of gas and electric energy for optimal results. You can also expect a 10-speed automatic transmission as well as selectable driving modes including Normal, Eco, Sport, Tow/Haul, Slippery, Trail, Deep Snow/Sand, Mud/Ruts, and Rock Crawl. You can also tow up to 14,000 pounds when the truck is properly equipped. You can also learn more about the Ford F-150 bed size.

The Silverado 1500 offers a diesel engine option (as does the F-150) but does not currently offer a hybrid engine option. you can choose from five available engines on the Chevy truck. You can’t access similar driving models, and you can only tow up to 13,300 pounds.

2020 Ford Explorer vs. 2021 Chevrolet Traverse

Unlike the Chevy Traverse, the Ford Explorer has a powerful hybrid engine option that can offer up to 400 hp, giving you greater performance on Myrtle Beach roads. You can also expect 87.8 cubic feet of max cargo space in the Explorer. Additionally, 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. They Traverse is capable of up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity while the Explorer can tow as much as 5,600 pounds.

2020 Ford Edge vs. 2021 Chevrolet Equinox

The Ford Edge SUV offers 73.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind its first-row seats, while the Chevy Equinox offers just 63.9 cubic feet in the same area. Evasive Steering Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering are also available for the Edge — not the Equinox. The Ford Edge offers more overall space in addition to a wide range of safety features.

2020 Ford Mustang vs. 2021 Chevrolet Camaro

This classic Ford sports car blows its competition out of the water from the get-go with a base engine that offers 310 hp — the Camaro’s base engine offers just 275 hp. The Mustang is available with six different engines, while the Camaro only offers four. You can also access the unmatched Shelby GT500® model to get ultimate performance on the Florence roads. Drivers can also expect Ford 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:
