We hear about brands and branding so much these days that it can be nauseating. Especially if you work in marketing and advertising or even in any kind of business-related capacity, really. While it is true that branding is very important for marketing, how much does branding matter to you as a consumer? To what degree do different brands really equate to different products? Well, when it comes to automobiles, a lot of brand distinction is pure marketing. But there are some significant differences in different brands of vehicles.
When it comes to the automobiles themselves, there are some significant differences between auto brands. We can see this in the transmission, as well. Often, these differences are subtle. Sometimes there are major differences. Knowing the differences between different automakers’ transmissions might not make a huge difference, but it can help you to make the best purchase for your needs and wants and it can help you to take care of your transmission. In this article we will discuss Ford transmissions.
