Which American Automaker Is Right for You?

The automotive landscape is changing rapidly, with consumers increasingly choosing sport-utility vehicles and pickup trucks over conventional coupes and sedans. As a result, the two most prominent carmakers in the U.S. – Ford and Chevrolet – are in the process of purging the majority of passenger cars from their respective lineups.

That will eventually leave both brands with sports cars, including the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette (and perhaps an electric car or two) as their only traditional cars.

On the plus side, both brands are adding some novel SUVs to dealers’ showrooms. Chevrolet has just launched their revamped subcompact Trailblazer crossover, and Ford has unveiled a new line of off-roaders that bring back the Bronco nameplate. Both brands continue to be strongly represented in both the full-size and midsize pickup truck segments.
