How to Make a Vehicle Comparison

Car buyers are faced with a lot of choices these days, especially if they are in the market for a new vehicle. To help Tunkhannock, Dallas, Harveys Lake, and Wilkes-Barre drivers narrow down their options, the team here at Tunkhannock Ford has put together several vehicle comparisons.

These resources allow you to explore model differences and similarities in key areas like powertrains, dimensions, cargo space, and more.

Vehicles with a higher mass tend to be sturdier and provide more protection than those with less mass. This is particularly important with vehicles that carry passengers. To help drivers determine if they will be comfortable with the mass of the vehicle, the car comparison tool allows them to select a model and see how it compares in terms of external dimensions (length, width, height) and passenger capacity with other new automobiles in the market. The car comparator also displays the available fuel economy and electric range for both vehicles. You can change the selected automobile model at any time and the list will recalculate.


Velocity is the quantitative measure of the speed and direction of a moving object. It is a vector measure, containing both magnitude and direction, unlike speed which is only a magnitude measurement.

When two vehicles collide and stick together, the final velocity depends on the initial velocities, masses of the cars, and their relative accelerations. However, velocity also depends on the frame of reference attached to the reference point.

Most previous studies about the impact of velocity on energy consumption have dealt with conventional vehicles. However, since electric vehicles are rapidly gaining market share, it is necessary to compare their fuel consumption as well.

Select up to three new cars to see how they stack up against each other. Evaluate engine and fuel economy specs, features, cargo capacity, safety scores, price and more.


The acceleration of an object depends on both its velocity and its mass. If two automobiles have the same velocity, they may or may not have the same acceleration. The rate of change in velocity is acceleration, and two cars might be speeding up or slowing down at different rates. A faster moving car has a greater velocity and therefore has more kinetic energy, and it requires more force to change its velocity. In addition, the more massive a car is, the more force it needs to accelerate at the same rate as a lighter vehicle. This is why diesel cars typically don’t accelerate as quickly as gasoline powered vehicles.. but this doesn’t mean they aren’t quick if driven with the intent to accelerate quickly.
