If you're looking for a reliable new or used vehicle in Smithville, you've probably considered both Ford and Chevy, and you may have also asked yourself, "Is Ford better than Chevy?" Of course, at Sames Bastrop Ford, our answer is yes! But we know you want the facts to back this statement up, so we're bringing the evidence straight to you. We'd keep you here all day if we could, but we know you just want a quick rundown. So without further ado, compare Ford vs. Chevy trucks, performance cars, and SUVs with us below, as well as their CPO programs.

Ford F-150 vs. Chevrolet Silverado 1500

When you choose a new Ford F-150, you'll have a choice of five V6 and V8 engine options ranging from 290 hp to 450 hp. Chevy's competitor, the Silverado 1500, only offers three engines that range from 310 hp to 420 hp. In terms of maximum towing capacity, the F-150 is built Ford Tough® to handle up to 13,200 pounds. Meanwhile, the Silverado taps out at 12,500 pounds. For even more performance, explore F-150 lift kits and leveling kits!

Ford Edge vs. Chevrolet Equinox

A new Ford Edge will grant you 73.4 cubic feet of cargo behind the first row of seats, while the Chevy Equinox can only offer you 63.5 cubic feet. If you're interested in Evasive Steering Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering, you can get it no problem in the Ford Edge, but not with the Equinox.

Ford Mustang vs. Chevrolet Camaro

The entry-level Chevy Camaro generates 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, which probably sounds impressive until you hear that the base level Ford Mustang delivers 310 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, exclusive Ford Mustang features like Adaptive Cruise Control, MyMode, and a B&O PLAY Premium Audio System will make your LaGrange commutes enjoyable again.

Ford vs. Chevy: Certified Pre-Owned Programs

We have to admit, both Ford and Chevy have great CPO programs, no matter if you're shopping for a heavy-duty truck or an easy-handling sedan. Both brands offer 24-hour roadside assistance, CPO financing, vehicle history reports, and thorough 172-point inspections. That being said, only Ford offers these added benefits on CPO vehicles:

  • Fuel delivery of up to 2 gallons if you run out of gas
  • 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
