2018 Acura MDX vs. 2018 Ford Expedition Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition than in the Acura MDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Expedition will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Acura MDX.

Convenience
With the Ford Expedition, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Acura MDX, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Acura MDX is a better financial choice over the Ford Expedition, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura MDX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition.

Dimensions
Since the Acura MDX is much slimmer than the Ford Expedition, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Acura MDX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Expedition.

Drivetrain
The Acura MDX has much lower torque than the Ford Expedition, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Expedition is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Acura MDX has a lot less horsepower than the Ford Expedition.

Utility
The Acura MDX has less seating than the Ford Expedition, making the Ford Expedition the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Acura MDX has less cargo space than the Ford Expedition, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura MDX than that of the Ford Expedition.
