Although crossovers have become quite popular, there are still plenty of drivers who appreciate the toughness of a traditional truck-based SUV. Chosen as the Best Large SUV for Families by U.S. News & World Report, the all-new 2018 Ford Expedition definitely brings a lot to the table. Not only is the redesigned Expedition stronger than ever before, but it also offers a more exciting list of luxurious features. Let's see how the 2018 Ford Expedition fares against the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban.
For 2018, the Expedition comes strapped with a new EcoBoost V6 engine. It pushes out a monstrous 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. However, Platinum models are tuned to develop a staggering 400 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. With a total output of 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the Chevrolet Suburban's V8 engine isn't nearly as powerful. Whether you're traveling with a full load of passengers or pulling a heavy trailer, drivers will certainly benefit from the Expedition's extra muscle under the hood. While the Expedition can confidently tow up to 9,300 pounds, the Suburban's maximum towing capacity stands at 8,300 pounds. Amazingly, you'll still be able to obtain better fuel economy in the Expedition.
Both of these full-size SUVs are ideal for the drivers who need to accommodate multiple people. Nevertheless, the 2018 Ford Expedition does boast the roomiest cabin. When sitting in the Expedition's third row, your passengers will enjoy an extra 6.4 inches of legroom. The Expedition's second-row seats also provide noticeably more space for your passengers to stretch out. Everyone in your family will appreciate the Expedition's comfort. Although the Chevrolet Suburban offers several luxurious amenities, it fails to offer conveniences such as an automated parking system. If you really want to experience a plush ride, check out the Expedition Platinum's massaging front seats.
Nothing beats being able to transport your family and friends in a safe vehicle. The Chevrolet Suburban's mediocre, four-star NHTSA overall safety rating is bound to concern some drivers. You also can't overlook the Expedition's more inspiring list of advanced safety features. When driving around in urban areas, available pedestrian detection promises to give you an extra peace of mind. The Expedition's available 360-degree camera system is another feature not offered on the Chevrolet Suburban.
The 2018 Ford Expedition handily wins this head-to-head comparison against the 2018 Chevrolet Suburban. It's more powerful, safer, and packed with a greater number of exclusive features. To experience everything that the redesigned Expedition has to offer, contact your local Ford dealer to request a test drive.
