About This Quiz

How fast can you go from 0 to 50 with this quiz? Let's find out!

Expert all-American craftsmanship versus exceptional Japanese ingenuity! Truly there could not have been two more perfect combatants in this automotive quiz. Nissan is a multinational company and vehicle brand that has its roots planted in the east, in the technological powerhouse that is Japan. Ford is also a multinational company and vehicle brand. However, this familiar face has its foundation deep in the United States. 

Nissan and Ford are both veterans in the industry and as a result, they understandably have decades worth of experience under their belts. Ford has over a century worth of history in the industry while Nissan is close behind with over 80 years of history. 

Both brands are influential in their own right. Nissan is probably most well known for prioritizing factors like affordability and simple commercial designs and features. On the other hand, Ford is best known for being an icon in American culture, being somewhat synonymous with the "all-American" lifestyle and the "American dream." 

So, are you ready to drive with a combination of speed, sensibility, and, of course, style? Then c'mon, fasten your seat belt and get ready to shift gears with this quiz!
