2016 BMW X5 vs. 2017 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 BMW X5, 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 BMW X5 and the Ford Expedition.

Convenience
The BMW X5 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Expedition, 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). Whether you pick the BMW X5 or the Ford Expedition, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X5 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 BMW X5, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Expedition.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW X5 and the Ford Expedition are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The BMW X5 has the same turning radius as the Ford Expedition, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Ford Expedition, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the BMW X5. When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X5 has a lot less horsepower than the Ford Expedition.

Utility
The BMW X5 has less seating than the Ford Expedition, making the Ford Expedition the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X5 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 BMW X5 than that of the Ford Expedition.
