Well over here it would be Ford vs Holden, but I have to go with Chev as I've always been a GM fan even if my first car was a Ford. ph34r.gif

My dream car is a 69 RS SS Camaro equiped with an LS7.

Tricky poll for me.
I'd pick Chevy if you're talking about it's whole lifespan, it's 40's-70's cars were priceless.
I'd pick Ford for modern times simply because they're better imo. I'm not a fan of Chevrolet's these days, and with cars like the new Malibu(horrible) it seems I have a good reason why.

I think this comparison is a little... specific.

Perhaps a moderator should change the options.

-Ford/Lincoln/Mercury
-GM
-Mopar
-None of the above

Anyone who chose ("none of the above" which shouldn't be an option) doesn't know what the argument is about,or is a MOtard.

Chevy won before this was a poll.

Or, maybe we are Europeans with no affinity for one car company who scarcely exists in our realm, and another whose last half-decent creations were getting on for 20 years, ago, and last truly great creation was in 1984?

Not to mention the little experience of Chevy we have is of rebadged Daewoos.

Anyway, I voted for Ford because although I like more of the cars in Chevrolet's history, Ford have been doing a much better job of running their business in recent years. I know they have recently posted losses, but Ford have been producing relatively solid cars appropriate for the European market and developing countries which has allowed them to quickly respond to the changing demands of the US market (e.g. bringing the Fiesta over), and refuse government bailouts.

The alternative to a Ford here is Vauxhall (AKA Opel, a GM brand) and Chevroletwoo which both supply a range of cars I would always choose a Ford over.

I've always had some sort of positive connection with Ford since a couple of members of my family work for the company, so I have always been a little biased. I like the newer Fords a lot and believe they are a big improvement in design and reliability than Fords of the 90s and early 00s.

While I used to dislike Chevrolet because I fell for the whole "Ford vs Chevy" argument, both brands have their ups and downs. After driving a few of them I have learned to respect Chevrolet.

In my opinion, I would have to give the overall upper-hand to Ford within the last five or so years since they seem to be better built/designed these days. I wouldn't have said that ten years ago, though. I have a buddy that loves Chevys that's been jealous of the new Fords coming out within the last several years.

While I personally like Ford, I don't drive one anymore. My first car was a Ford Focus. I loved that little car. That new 2012 Focus is pretty nice, as well. I even used to be a pretty big fan of the Ford Mustang (they're still my favorite muscle), but within the last few years I've started to really like Asian and German engineering.

Having said that, I'm now a satisfied Mazda owner so I'll consider myself exempt from the battle between the two brands.

I don't prefer one over the other. They both have decent vehicles at decent prices.

I used to have an old V8 Chevelle which was pretty solid and would easily deliver 9mpg with the wind on your back while travelling downhill.

It was the only American car I ever owned.

My girlfriend's had her Ford Puma for 5 years and, okay it's not the best car in the world but the only thing that's needed replacing in 5 years is a wheel bearing, I'd say that's pretty awesome. Plus I like Ford's patented front window defrost. Ford Transit vans are pretty much the best and Mondeo's are work horses.

Having said that, I'm a VAG man... I like vag..

I would have said the opposite. Until recently, fords have always been better built than their equivalent GM model. Have you even ever driven any older Ford or Chevy?

Yes, we have been a Ford family since we had family working there (since the late 80s) because we got discounts. I grew up with my parents driving Fords. We ended up buying two barely used Chevys in the late 90s (under 10,000 miles) from where my father worked and they ended up having less problems than the Fords we previously owned. Both my parents worked either selling cars (my mom sold Acuras back then) or repairing them. They baby their vehicles.

This is coming from someone who is a little biased and prefers Fords. Late 80s and almost entirely through the 90s, from my personal experience, Fords were the more unreliable of the two. If my father (who also prefers Ford) opted to buy Chevrolet replacements for our previously unreliable Fords, then he must have lost faith in them as well.

Like I said, in the last five or so years Ford has been superior to GM in terms of build quality. However, this is just from my observation. Though now, my mother owns an Acura (she never brought one until recently in all the years she's worked there) and my father owns a Ford again. He mentioned a year or so ago how much he liked the new models and soon after bought a new Ford.

As for me, I chose not to buy a Ford or a Chevy. =P

My friend had 2 trucks. Both around 85 or so. 1 ton duallys. Probably comparable mileage on both. Both specced pretty similarly. The Ford was an 2wd F350, 6.9 IDI/close ratio t19/sterling 10.5. Chevy was a 2wd C30; 4 barrel 350/Sm465/14 bolt. Mechanically, I probably preferred the Chevy. They were both pretty tough trucks but that chevy really took a beating day in and day out and was about as much of a work truck as you could ask for. But the interior, fit and finish, and general build quality were just horrible compared to the Ford. Ford was so much comfier and nicer inside. And it wasn't an up-level truck by any means. Everything on it was nicer though. Even the basic plastics. Also so much roomier with a much better seat position. Also, that T19 shifted like butter compared to the muncie.

I've never questioned chevy's mechanically, I think they're awesome there, but from all the ones I've driven (I've probably driven 30 old chevys in the past few years), good god do they suck on the inside.

Ford. Simply because I barrack for them in the Ford vs. Holden rivalry over here and because Chevrolets aren't even sold over here (apart from privately obviously).

Oh, we're comparing two entirely different things. You're talking about the quality of the interior. I'm talking build quality of the vehicle mechanically. I think it depends on the car, to be honest. Ford and Chevy were both pretty comparable up until the mid 00s. It seems around or after GM's bailout, Ford's quality has stepped ahead in almost every category. I've sat in a 2011 Fusion and test drove it. Very solid interior, comfy, and the sound system was mint. The quality definitely spits on some of the Chevys I've seen recently.

My dad would say Chevy, my Grandfather would say Ford, and I say Mopar.

I will give it to Chevy though, I do like the new 2013 trucks that just got shown to the press. Definitely a new piece of competition against the f-150. But f*ck it, I'm a sucker for Cummins and Rams.

I will say that the seats in my stepmom's 2006 Chevy Impala LS are terrible. It's like sitting on a wooden bench. Your butt goes numb in about half an hour. The driver's seat is electric, including the depth of the seat bottom, but it makes little difference. Not very comfortable at all. cry.gif

I think the most comfortable seats I've ever sat in are my brother's 1998 Ford Explorer Sport with manual cloth seats. I drove it from Oklahoma to South Carolina. I wanted to steal his seats so bad. tounge2.gif

I am not having affections to any kind of American cars, but if I had to choose between these two and my life was dependent on it, I would choose Chevrolet.

Why? After all these buttf*ck ugly Ford KAs, Escorts, Mondeos (the only good mondeo was the estate MK2 as it was spacious and filled our needs when we rented it back in 2003-2004) and Fiestas/Focuses on the street I just can't bear them anymore.

A bad example, but an Aveo seems to be pretty cheap for what it actually gives the driver, so I think I would rather have that than a Fiesta, which is way too small for my build.

For older cars - Ford doesn't even have that many memorable cars, Thunderbird and Mustang and GT which is comparable to a Corvette.

However for trucks, I'd go for a Dodge RAM, those things are beast.

Umm, I didn't dare to put it in here as Cosworth is not Ford's own company, infact they also made modifcations to Chevrolet cars too (with more recent ones being Opels which are still by GM).
