About This Quiz

Car companies have had to compete with each other for decades now, and with more automobile brands than ever to choose from, it can be difficult to tell which brand is which, especially since lots of the design elements are similar. But if you're a car expert, you'll know the subtle curves and lines that belong to a particular company. You'll be able to see what others won't because you have such a keen eye when it comes to automobile design.

And we want you to try to apply that today, in a quiz where we pit Chevrolet against Ford. We're going to give you a mix of the two brands and it'll be your job to study each picture to try to determine whether you're seeing something from Ford or one of Chevy's offerings.
