Ah, the big men on campus, the bigwigs of the automotive industry. There are few cars as meaty and artistically long-winded as the Ford Expedition or Chevy Tahoe. In fact, these two full-size SUVs do more than just get you around-they can propel you to higher places in the Leesville, New Llano, and Anacoco, LA, areas.

Because of their similarities, like their roominess and storage space, we put together a Ford Expedition vs. Chevy Tahoe comparison for your viewing pleasures. If you're left wanting to get a test drive scheduled, reach out to your friends at Hixson Ford Leesville so we can get you matched with the perfect vehicle.

Ford Expedition vs Chevy Tahoe: Interior

Time and again, Ford finds new ways to manage space with a cherry on top. Both cars offer a cushy interior accustomed to every rider, although they differ in their handling of said space. Here, though, it's Ford who provides a bit more flexibility when you're on a long road trip-like when you're needing the perfect place to lay a pillow.

By and large, the Expedition is suited for the in-depth chauffeur-the weekend adventurer, the versatile family, the dynamic power couple-for their layered journeys that require added umph. For example, if you're looking for maximum comfort seating, check out the second-row 40/20/40 fold-flat seats with CenterSlide®. This feature allows you to make the most of any trip, no matter how big or small.

In comparison, the Tahoe's interior is equally determined to merge and comfort and convenience. However, its manual-folding second row 60/40 split-bench seats don't come standard on the base trim, instead only being offered on the LS trim and higher. Additionally, the 10-way power seat adjusters are just an available upgrade on select trims.

Ford Expedition vs Chevy Tahoe: Power and Capabilities

True to their word, these full-size SUVs come complete with the full package: One where robust performance meets luxury in a subtle manner, one which accommodates your journey no matter the reason. You'll find driving is smooth and worthwhile as soon as you start their engines.

In Ford's counterpart lives a standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine with 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque available. That sort of power allows for potent towing capacity that reaches 6,600 pounds with 2-wheel drive-and up to 9,300 pounds with the available Heavy-Duty Trailer Towing Package. Together, this mighty drivetrain combines for an EPA-estimated 17 city MPG/23 highway MPG.

The Tahoe, meanwhile, provides lesser strength in its capabilities. The maximum towing capacity when equipped is well below the Expedition's at 8,200 pounds, as is the available 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. All in all, the Tahoe amounts to a lesser fuel economy-an EPA-estimated 14 city MPG/23 highway MPG. However, the fuel efficiency does sway between the engine types as part of the SUV's available trims.

Ford Expedition vs Chevy Tahoe: Connecting You with Ease

There's always a new piece of technology ready to keep you entertained in ways you couldn't have imagined. The Expedition and Tahoe equally take advantage of fine tech-based furnishings to provide safe, hands-free entertainment at your disposal.

The Expedition comes standard with FordPass™ Connect, a safety package which lets you lock and unlock-or even start and stop-your vehicle with just a few taps on the available iOS or Android app. Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot are available as part of SYNC® 3, too, as well as an available center console wireless charging station.

With the Tahoe, you'll also have plenty to listen to, and even be able to talk with, with similar technologies and features bundled into the interior. There's little the Expedition or Tahoe can't do from the first stop to your last. Strap in and enjoy the ride.

The All-Seeing Eyes of Safety

With confident vehicles come confident safety features ready to hop in and do their job at a moment's notice. The Expedition and Tahoe go head-to-head with each other by sporting numerous shared, advanced safety features, including:   

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Monitor
  • Lane Keeping System

The Expedition especially shines in this area with their Ford Co-Pilot360™ advanced safety features package, an all-encompassing addition on most Ford models. With it comes a plethora of technologies meant to solidify your confident driving.

From making sure your teenage driver is driving smoothly to monitoring the traffic beside and in front of you, the Ford Expedition and Chevy Tahoe have your back at all times.
