I have no idea where you're getting any of this. According to historical records that I used to double check...you know what. Never mind. This is a tangent and I suspect you would just reject any articles I point to.It was absolutely NOT more reliable. In fact, this was noted a major departure. It was NOT more versatile -- there were contemporary automobiles much more versatile. The Model T was designed as one-size-fits-all. And it certainly wasn't better suited to the roads -- contemporary automobiles generally had more comfortable rides on all surfaces.
The Model T was simple, easy to work on, and had plenty of available parts. The engine was quite reliable. But that's not the comparison of quality -- quality is the measure of a thing against similar things. And, compared to the available automobiles of it's time, the Model T made some very specific choices to reduce quality in favor of simplicity, cost, and availability. It was these features of the Model T that made it popular -- it was the first automobile the average person might afford and use, and it worked well enough for that purpose. This is not a display of quality.
More expensive does not necessarily mean higher quality. Have a good one.
