Red F-150 in a Field 

Is Ford better than Chevy? The team at Auffenberg Ford South certainly thinks so, but since we sell new Ford models, we may be a bit biased. But comparing Ford vs. Chevy models proves our point based on facts, no matter which type of vehicle you're looking to drive around Waterloo. Let's not forget the advantages of the Ford Certified Pre-Owned program over that of Chevrolet. See how everything compares below!

Ford vs. Chevy: Trucks

Both Ford and Chevy are renowned for their heavy-duty trucks, but comparing the matched-up models, it's clear how much better Ford trucks actually are. Take the Ford F-150, for example, which offers a range of V6 and V8 engines, as well as a diesel offering. Meanwhile, the Chevy Silverado only has three in its lineup.

Check out the F-150's towing capacity, too: 13,200 pounds, as compared with the Silverado's 12,500-pound tow rating. New to the game is the Ford Ranger, which faces off against the Chevy Colorado and wins outright in terms of performance, towing, and features. Check out the 2020 Ford Ranger bed dimensions for additional information, too.

Ford vs. Chevy: SUVs

No matter which of the Chevrolet SUVs you consider, its Ford SUV counterpart proves superior. The Ford Edge provides a maximum cargo volume of 73.4 cubic feet, whereas the Chevy Equinox has only 63.5 cubic feet available.

And in a Ford Escape vs. Chevy Equinox comparison, the smaller Ford SUV also promises more space for your gear, at 68.0 cubic feet total.

Ford vs. Chevy: Performance Cars

Ford and Chevy also receive high praise for the performance cars in their lineups. Again, the Ford Mustang proves stronger, literally.

While the Chevy Camaro base model generates 275 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, and the entry-level Ford Mustang churns out 310 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Mascoutah drivers can also enjoy exclusives like 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. Columbia drivers can expect roadside assistance, special financing options, vehicle history reports, and thorough vehicle inspections from either program. However, the Ford CPO program comes with additional benefits, like:

  • 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
