About This Quiz

As we were saying, Ford and Chevy are both American. Both of these auto brands have been ridiculously successful and have come to be known for certain cars. For Ford, those vehicles are the Mustang, the F-150, the Escape and, of course, the Focus. When it comes to Chevy, even non-car fans have heard of the Camaro, the Corvette and the iconic Impala. But could you tell us the difference between the two if we showed you a picture of one of them? That's the question we're going to answer today.

The way in which we're going to do that is by asking you a question, as well as show you what the vehicle looks like. It will be your job to glean as much as you can from both to make an educated guess as to which brand was responsible for that vehicle. Of course, if you're a fan, you won't need any help, but if you aren't, then take all the help you can get. 

The time has come for you to pluck up the courage and see if you can tell the difference between these Ford and Chevy vehicles.
