Q:

Why is Chevy better than Ford?

A:

The statement "Chevy is better than Ford" is an opinion that is largely backed up by one word that makes Ford owners tremble: Corvette. The 2014 Corvette Stingray is one of the highest honored vehicles of all-time, garnering the 2014 North American Car of the Year Award, plus over 20 other top honors from various publications.

Chevy and Ford compete in nearly every class, from the Chevy Cruze that competes with the Ford Focus to the Chevy Malibu that takes on the Ford Fusion head-on, to the Chevy Impala that, according to Consumer Reports, handily beats all other cars in its class, including the Ford Taurus. Even the Chevy Camaro and the Ford Mustang go head-to-head. Chevy and Ford cars and trucks jockey for the top spot typically based on the newest model.

Ford simply has nothing that compares to the grace, sophistication, styling and brute performance of the Corvette. Its closest attempts were the short-lived ultra premium Ford GT that boasted super-car specifications similar to the Corvette; however, it carried a price at least twice as expensive. The more successful attempt by Ford at recreating the excitement and engineering marvel of the Corvette comes in the form of the Mustang GT500. Despite carrying a higher suggested retail price and an engine capable of pumping out over 200 horsepower more than the Corvette, the Mustang GT500 is still beat by the 2014 Corvette Stingray in head-to-head track tests, according to Edmunds.com.
