Heritage Ford touts 2018 Ford models versus Chevy competitors

2018 F-150 and Fusion ready to roll out to buyers

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt., Sept. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Ford and Chevrolet have one of the longest-running rivalries in the automotive industry, spanning more than 100 years. That competition is being fought from the Ford side of the equation every day at Heritage Ford in South Burlington. The Ford class of 2018 is arriving at the dealership in full force led by the 2018 Ford F-150, the best-selling full-size pickup truck in North America as well as the 2018 Ford Fusion, a strong performer in a very hotly contested class of its own. Both vehicles have a lot to offer buyers and Heritage Ford is standing ready to help buyers get behind the wheel of a model that will best suit their needs. 

Starting with the 2018 Ford F-150 and 2018 Chevy Silverado rivalry, Ford has refused to stop changing the game with its full-size pickup. For the new model year, Ford has introduced engine start/stop features to every available powertrain to prevent fuel from being burned unnecessarily. Additionally, 2018 will be the first time that the F-150 will have a diesel engine option. Furthermore, Chevy does not offer a diesel engine outside of its heavy-duty pickup truck series.  

A really impressive new element to the shared story of the F-150 and Silverado is that Ford's new 3.3-liter, V-6 engine is able to make more power than the larger V-6 power plant available on entry-level trims of the Chevy truck.  

The midsize sedan may not be currently as popular as crossover SUVs, but that hasn't stopped Ford and Chevy from being locked in a pitched battle. Examining the 2018 Ford Fusion and 2018 Chevy Malibu shows how far this class has come. Owners of the 2018 Fusion will have a distinct performance advantage over those choosing the newest Malibu option, especially at the base trim. The balance is further tipped toward the new Ford Fusion with is larger trunk compared to the 2018 Malibu 

The entire Heritage Ford inventory can be viewed on the dealership's website, www.ford.heritagevt.com. Customers can see both new Ford models in the showroom located at 1600 Shelburne Road, South Burlington, VT 05403. Anyone looking for more information about the 2018 Ford F-150 or 2018 Ford Fusion can contact a Heritage Ford sale professional today by calling 802-865-8100.
