About This Quiz

Ford and Dodge have ruled the roost among American car buffs for generations. If you're a fan of one brand or the other, you probably will not have any trouble identifying the cars from your favorite line. But can you pick out offerings from both companies? In this quiz, we'll see if you can tell a Ford from Dodge, so put down that copy of Motor Trend and get started!

Ford, of course, is where it all began. Henry Ford built his assembly line, the Model T made it possible for regular folks to own cars, and the driving age began.  Faster than a Mustang can run, car guys were wrist-deep in engine oil and tinkering with project cars on weekends.

Dodge goes back almost as far as Ford, and in recent decades has been one of the most innovative companies in the market. The Grand Caravan, for example, was the first minivan to have seats that fold down into the vehicle floor, making its conversion from passenger vehicle to suburban moving van simple.  And, of course, cars like the Challenger give your rubber-burning soul some real satisfaction.

So, gearheads, pick up the keys to this quiz and put your pedal to your mental metal and prove you can tell two iconic American car makers apart!

The first Ford in the F-Series was released in 1948 and over the years, this brand has become one of America's favorite pickups. And it shows in sales figures. Over the last three decades, the F-Series has outsold every competitor with ease. The latest models of the F-150 retain all that Ford history while giving their owners a thoroughly modern vehicle.

The Ford Escort was first released as a model in Europe in 1964. One of the most iconic Ford brands on the continent, six generations were produced over a 36-year period throughout the world. The brand was introduced to the United States in 1980 and there were three generations until 2003, when it was discontinued.

This SUV has been produced under the Dodge name since 1997. Currently in its third generation, it shares much in common with the Jeep Grand Cherokee as it is built on the same platform. The top of the range Durango is powered by a 5.7-liter V8 HEMI engine which produces 360 brake horsepower.

Without a doubt, the Model T from Ford is one of the most iconic cars ever built. Not only did Henry Ford make a car that was affordable to the ordinary citizens of the United States, but he was able to produce them at such a rate to be able to keep up with the demand. From 1908 to 1927, 15 million Model T's were sold in the United States.

The Charger was Dodge's first muscle car in the 1960s and entered the market as their answer to the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. Today, it still battles its rivals. Now in its seventh generation, the Charger SRT Hellcat has a 6.2-liter supercharged engine capable of producing 707 brake horsepower.

Produced from the 1940s, this is one of the first 4x4 off-road vehicles made. It was based on the chassis of a U.S. mlitary truck. The Power Wagon was in production from 1945 to 1980. Dodge resurrected the name in 2005 as part of their Dodge Ram lineup.

The Challenger was first introduced in 1970 as a muscle car. The top of the range model from this era was powered by a 6.98-liter Chrysler Hemi engine.

Then in 2008, the brand was reintroduced by the Chrysler group, again as a muscle car. Since reintroduction, over 400,000 Challengers have been sold.

Another one of Ford's big selling models, the Taurus first entered production in 1986. Currently in its sixth generation, the car competes in the full-sized car segment.

Bronco production ended in 1996 after 30 years, but Ford will reintroduce the model in around 2019.

The Neon was introduced in 1994 and carried both the Dodge and Chrysler badges. A second generation entered production in 2000 before the brand fell away in 2005.

This pickup truck model was marketed by Dodge between 1961 and 1993 with a name change to Ram in 1981. The D Series included a 4x2 and a 4x4 version.

The Ford Super Duty is an excellent off-roader from Ford and the perfect choice when hauling a heavy load. Thanks to a solid beam axle, the Super Duty offers better axle articulation.
