1981 Chevy Blazer versus Ford Bronco

The more things change, the more they stay the same. That age-old adage is once again proven by the video you'll see below. In a classic battle of Chevy versus Ford, the 1981 Blazer SUV is pitted against the Ford Bronco in a dealer training video designed to give sales staff all the information they needed to sway customers toward the Bowtie and away from the Blue Oval.

The checklist sounds familiar. Horsepower and torque, fuel economy, standard features versus optional equipment, payload and cargo space – each of these categories are compared. Seems the issues that matter most to car-buying consumers haven't changed much in 30 years. Scroll down and watch the video to take a stroll down memory lane.
