The Ford Expedition vs. Chevy Tahoe is a battle of the titans for dominance of the full-size SUV segment. American strength and size combine to make the most capable hauling machines money can buy.
The 2018 Ford Expedition is great, but the 2018 Chevy Tahoe is better. The 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe has best in class infotainment capability, while the Expedition is still struggling to improve its Sync3 system. The Tahoe shows its superiority in several other areas as well.Download Brochure
The Chevy Tahoe is now available with a 6.2 liter V8 engine and 10 speed automatic transmission. There are other new and exciting features that come standard as well, including LED Daytime Running Lamps. The improvements to the power and performance are by far the most noticeable.
Ford’s new features include an aluminum body and four more inches of additional length. The purpose of this design is to increase space and fuel efficiency. Unfortunately, these changes do create unfortunate drawbacks, such as reduced safety and additional parking difficulty.Download Brochure
The most jarring thing about the appearance of the new Ford Expedition is the flamboyant chrome grille. It’s a blatant attempt to make the car look more like a high-end luxury model, and it misses the mark for subtlety. This may have been Ford’s attempt to fit in with expensive luxury SUVs, because the Expedition’s price certainly has a lot in common with those kinds of brands.
The Tahoe relies on more classic design elements that are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. As a result, this full-size SUV stands out for all the right reasons. Chevrolet has proved that it’s possible to create a massive vehicle with an attractive design.Download Brochure
You’ll find a massive interior when you hop inside the 2018 Tahoe. It’s as comfortable as it is large, thanks to great amenities that exceed expectations for the price. The cabin remains quiet even at highway speeds. This helps passengers get even more out of the innovative technology and infotainment.
The Expedition’s build quality is disappointing for the price of this car. The deluxe price comes standard with materials that age quickly and are less than comfortable at times. The base model also lacks basic features that 2018 car buyers expect in a car.Download Brochure
Both of these cars are well suited to keep passengers safe. They both scored well in independent crash test ratings, and they have a good amount of safety features as either standard technology or optional add-ons.
The biggest difference between these models comes down to driver assistance and attention to detail. A prime example is how rear-parking sensors come standard in the Tahoe to help drivers park the large vehicle. Unfortunately, Ford upcharges for that feature.Download Brochure

CHEVY TAHOE OR FORD EXPEDITION: WHICH IS BEST?
Even though Chevy has an edge over Ford in almost every measurable category, both of these are great vehicles for families. The big difference is that Chevrolet brings its legendary dependability and greater financial sense to the table.
Chevrolet’s advantage in the large SUV segment also comes from a developed understanding of how to push boundaries while making drivers feel comfortable at the same time. This approach is clear in things like the combination of subtle designs with increased power, and you will appreciate it every time you go for a drive.
