by Bri O.


Are you an automotive expert who can identify the make of a car from a single glance? Can you distinguish a Ford from a Chevy as you cruise on down the highway? If you don't need an emblem to help you tell these two car brands apart, you just may have what it takes to ace our Ford vs. Chevy quiz.

It's no secret that Americans love their cars, and many drivers find their identity is closely tied to their favorite automotive brand. While vehicle buyers have plenty of options these days, perhaps no two companies are more closely tied to the American automotive identity than Ford and Chevy. Whether out of family tradition, ownership experience or regional preferences, plenty of U.S. car buyers ride or die by their favorite brand. Though both Ford and Chevy were born in Michigan in the early 20th century, the two brands are worlds apart in the mind's of many drivers.

Automotive brand identity runs so deep in America that the companies have even found their way into music. From the "Chevy at the levee" in Don McLean's "American Pie," or Bob Seger "getting heavy in the back seat of a '60 Chevy" in "Night Moves," to Alan Jackson's reverence for an "old hand-me-down Ford" in "Drive," or the "girl in the flatbed Ford" catching the eye of The Eagles on "Take It Easy."

No matter which way your allegiance lies, there's no question that it takes some skill to tell Mustang from Corvette or GT from Camero. Think you've got what it takes? Prove it with this Ford vs. Chevy quiz!
