After huge industry sales figures in 2016 and 2017, most of those who follow the auto industry have anticipated that vehicle sales would start to fall back from cyclical highs this year and for the foreseeable future. That’s potentially bad news for Ford Motor (NYSE:F) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (NYSE:FCAU), as both members of the Big Three automakers have had to deal with challenges that have pressured their stock prices.

With tariff issues also affecting the companies’ manufacturing, those who are interested in Ford and Fiat Chrysler want to know whether one has a marked advantage over the other. Below, you’ll see how the two compare, using some common metrics that can help you decide which is the better buy.
