What Makes a Chevy Better Than a Ford


When you are trying to determine whether you are going to buy a Chevy or a Ford, stop by Classic Chevrolet to test drive the Silverado – and you’ll see that there are many things that make a Chevy better than a Ford.

Power and Body

The Ford F-150 creates 202 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque with 4.6-liter V-8 engine while the Silverado creates 195 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque with a smaller engine – a 4.3-liter V-6 engine.


When compared to the F-150, the Silverado is lighter, shorter and wider than the Ford. This is even more impressive when you compare the power that the smaller V-6 engine puts out compared to the larger V-8 engine in the Ford. While the Ford has a stiffer suspension for towing, the Chevy outdoes it because of the horsepower difference.


Both trucks offer a regular cab, crew cab and extended cab. Both also offer driver and front passenger airbags, air conditioning and a sound system with MP3 player/decoders. However, when it comes to standard features, the Chevy has more than the Ford, including theft prevention, foldaway mirrors, keyless entry, power locks and privacy glass.


When it comes down to the nitty gritty, the Chevy costs less than the Ford, especially when you consider the standard features available with the Silverado that don’t come with the Ford. Furthermore, Chevrolet parts and accessories are generally less expensive than Ford parts and accessories.

Chevy Youth Baseball Team Sponsorship


Chevy Youth Baseball is in its 10th year. This grassroots community outreach program helps bring baseball – America’s favorite pastime – together with America’s favorite brand – Chevrolet. Each dealership involved, including Classic Chevrolet, is in a Local Marketing Association. The dealership and association sponsor one youth baseball league in the community.

Making a Difference

The dealerships make a difference in the lives of the entire team by providing a test drive fundraising opportunity, equipment donations and a sponsorship check. The program helps to get the Chevrolet brand out in front of people’s minds and it also gives children a chance to be involved in a sport they otherwise may not be able to participate in.

Because of the donations, the local youth baseball programs have a chance to grow and gives the dealership to build a relationship with the community. Classic Chevrolet will provide items such as Chevy-branded youth baseball equipment, a presentation check, Chevy youth baseball banners, a sponsorship check, invitations for league members to attend a free instructional clinic and a test drive fundraising opportunity.

The banners features Chevy vehicles and are customized with the dealership’s name. The test drive fundraiser allows the league to earn more sponsorship dollars. The sponsorship and presentation checks are given by the association to the dealership and are to be presented to the league. Each check is $500.

The dealership will also provide one or more ½-day instructional clinics for the league. The participants will receive free fundamental training from instructors who are experienced.

Chevrolet Recognized for Climate Leadership


When you stop by Classic Chevy to test drive a new Chevrolet, keep in mind that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Center for Corporate Climate Leadership awarded Chevrolet a Climate Leadership for Innovative Partnerships award because of the company’s Clean Energy Campus Campaign.

Chevrolet purchased $5 million in carbon credits to help college campuses pay for energy projects to help themselves be more energy efficient and sustainable. Chevrolet even retired the credits so they could be used for colleges instead of offsetting its own emissions.

The funding opportunity is available for all K-12 schools, colleges and universities in the United States. The Verified Carbon Standard, developed by Chevrolet, helps schools determine whether carbon-reduction performances are eligible for funding through Chevrolet. A school may choose to submit individual certified buildings or submit campus-wide performance.

Since schools need large-scale energy efficiency, it is expensive; and Chevrolet found a way to help finance those energy projects. Students also asked campus leaders to secure funding. Chevrolet’s Clean Energy Campus Campaign is part of the company’s goal to reduce eight million metric tons of carbon emissions. This is the equivalent to the carbon reduction put out by a mature forest as big as Yellowstone Park does each year.

Visit Classic Chevy

Stop by Classic Chevrolet to test drive a Chevy, whether a pickup, heavy duty pickup, sedan, coupe or SUV. Each purchase through dealerships such as Classic Chevy helps Chevrolet fund programs such as the Clean Energy Campus Campaign. Since Chevrolet is not using carbon credits to offset their emissions, that means they are able to manufacture the vehicles within acceptable emissions ranges without having to apply for credits.

You can be sure that when you are driving a Chevrolet, you are driving a vehicle from a manufacturer that is doing its part in reducing carbon emissions and other gases.
