As a vehicle salesman who worked for the Lexus and ford dealerships, I have .
been able to notice the differences of the two brands. There are a few things that people .
won't look at when they are buying a vehicle because the only thing that matters to them .
is the price and the credit approval. The thing that they should be really looking at are the .
things that differ the vehicle from each other like in luxury, riding comfort and engine .
First of all, the Ford vehicles don't have a lot of luxuries. Most of the seats are .
made of cloth instead of leather, the trim on the inside is plastic, and neither the seats nor .
the windows are electric. On the other hand, Lexus vehicles come with a lot of luxuries. .
For example, all the seats and the door cover come in leather. The mirrors, windows, as .
well as the seats are electric, and all the windows except for the windshield and the two .
front side windows come tinted for privacy reasons. Also, the trim on the inside is made .
out of oak. .
Secondly, Fords riding comfort wasn't a very good design. One of the things is .
the suspension, which is very hard. It feels as if the vehicle doesn't have any shock .
absorbers at all. Another thing that would be noticeable is the rim that are made of steel .
making the vehicle heavier and this is more likely to give problems when driving on .
bumpy roads transferring the road conditions to the steering wheel. But when riding in a .
Lexus the comfort is totally different. They have gas shock absorbers and an independent .
suspension; which makes the vehicle for a very comfortable to ride even on very bumpy .
roads. The wheels are made out of aluminum making the car less heavy and less likely to .
transfer any vibration from the roads. .
Last of all, Ford engines tend to be less efficient. The gas mileage is truly awful .
either in the city or the highway. It usually makes thirteen miles per the gallon in the city .
and up to twenty miles per the gallon on the highway.
