2018 Ford Expedition vs. Chevrolet Tahoe SUV Comparison

One SUV Makes a Comprehensive Case for Drivers: The 2018 Ford Expedition VS Chevrolet Tahoe

If you're in the market for a full-size SUV, you likely have some must-have items on your list of what you want in a vehicle. Ultimately, the more you get with your investment, the more satisfied you will be in the long run. At Ken Pollock Ford, we took it upon ourselves to compare two of the top SUVs on the market today. The 2018 Ford Expedition and Chevrolet Tahoe both have positives of their own, but upon a stealth analysis of their respective power, spaciousness, economical favorability and more, you'll quickly realize that the Ford comes out on top. 

The Battle of the Engines

When it comes to full-size SUVs, drivers care about power. The 2018 Ford Expedition is equipped with an all-new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that reaches up to 400 horsepower, prompting both more power and an enhanced towing capacity of more than 6,600 pounds. Meanwhile, the Tahoe has a 5.3-liter V8 engine that maxes out at 355 horsepower and 5,600 pounds of towing capacity. While the Ford offers a 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission&mdsah;perfect for those times when you need extra traction-the Chevy only has a 6-speed gearbox. These performance variables make all the difference.

For a Full-Size SUV, Spaciousness Counts

For the 2018 model year, Ford took full-size to heart. This Expedition is four inches longer than the outgoing model, ultimately leaving it at 210.5 inches. This makes it more than half a foot longer than the Tahoe. If that's not enough, the Expedition MAX model offers another extra foot of length and an additional 16.9 cubic feet on top of the already-impressive 121.4 cubic feet of cargo space. When you're packing gear, this space matters. The second row even folds flat to make room for your crew to spread their legs or your luggage to come along.

An SUV That Serves Your Needs

While both the Ford and the Chevy SUV offer technological features like a Wi-Fi hotspot and USB ports, only the Expedition provides you with a panoramic roof so you can enjoy any and every weather. Add on Ford's Sync 3 technology and you've got yourself an exciting ride.

Following in the footsteps of the brand's legendary pickup trucks, the newest Expedition rocks an aluminum body that surrounds a high-strength steel frame. This ultimately reduces weight-about 300 pounds of it-making the SUV more aerodynamic than in the past. This means it weights nearly 100 pounds less than the Tahoe.

If Not for Safety, the Rest is Moot

You'll want you and all your passengers to get where you're going safely, so these features are top priority. For the 2018 year, the Expedition offers forward collision alert, lane keep assist, active park assist and a 360-degree camera-the latter two of these are not offered in the Tahoe. Meanwhile, the Expedition offers other driver assist technologies such as pedestrian detection, a blind spot information system with cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control with stop and go and more. With the 2018 Ford Expedition, there's no limit to safety.
