Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant started Chevrolet in November of 1911 with the luxurious high-performance Series C Six Class. After years of success, a Chevrolet plant was opened in Copenhagen, Denmark, and became the first Chevy plant outside of the United States. Throughout the years, Chevrolet introduced popular models like the Chevrolet Bel-Air, the Chevy Corvette, and all-electric Chevy Volt, which was introduced in 2011. Chevrolet is still one of the most popular American automotive brands to date, offering an expansive lineup of cars, trucks, and SUV for any driving situation.

Chevrolet is also known for being one of the most technologically progressive automotive brands in the industry, offering up-and-coming tech to make your drive safer and more entertaining. Features include:


Started by Henry Ford in 1903, Ford has a remarkable history, all beginning with the invention of the Quadricycle in 1896. Years later, Ford would introduce the Model T, which was at the time the world’s most simple, affordable, and durable vehicle. Present-day Ford offers an expansive lineup of cars, trucks, and SUVs for Chicago area drivers to enjoy, as well as the following technologies:

  • SYNC® 3 infotainment system
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System)
  • Rear View Camera
  • Enhanced Active Park Assist


What do critics and consumers have to save about Chevrolet and Ford vehicles? Chevy is currently the only brand to earn J.D. Power Dependability Awards for cars, trucks, and SUVs two years in a row. In 2017, the Sonic, Tahoe, Silverado HD, and Camaro were all honored with this award.

In fact, many Chevrolet vehicles have been given the most highly coveted awards in the auto industry. For example, the Chevy Impala received a 5-Star Overall Vehicle score for safety, the Traverse was called the 2016 ‘Best Large Car for the Money’ by U.S. News & World Report, and the Colorado was named Edmunds most wanted mid-sized truck in 2017.

While Ford has received some awards, like the 2016 Kelley Blue Book ‘5-Year Cost to Own’ award, it simply cannot compete with the amount of awards and accolades Chevy models have received.
