2013 Acura ZDX vs. 2014 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 ZDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Acura ZDX and the Ford Expedition.

Convenience
The Ford Expedition requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Acura ZDX, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Acura ZDX is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Expedition. 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 ZDX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition.

Dimensions
The Acura ZDX is about the same width as the Ford Expedition. If you go with the Acura ZDX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Expedition.

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

Handling
The Acura ZDX has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Expedition, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Expedition is clearly the choice over the Acura ZDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura ZDX has a little less horsepower than the Ford Expedition.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Acura ZDX seats a lot fewer people than the Ford Expedition. The Acura ZDX has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Expedition.

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