The rivalry between Dodge and Ford doesn't just play out on the roads today; it dates back to when automobiles were first created. Henry Ford and John and Horace Dodge have been rivals since the early 1900s.
The Dodge brothers were early investors in Ford, but Ford shut out its investors by revoking shareholder dividends. The Dodge brothers sued and then started their own business creating the Dodge Model 30 to compete with Ford's Model T.
As you can see, the Dodge vs. Ford rivalry is as old as trucks themselves and started at the very top before working its way down to everyday drivers who need to choose between the two brands.
To this day, both companies make some of the best trucks on the road. After all these years working on perfecting their craft, why wouldn't they? But the fact remains they appeal to different people. Some people will never, ever switch from one brand to the other. It would be unheard of. Are you one of them? Are you a Ford Fanatic or a Dodge Diehard?
