2016 Chevrolet Tahoe vs. 2016 Ford Expedition EL Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Chevrolet Tahoe than the Ford Expedition EL. The Chevrolet Tahoe will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Expedition EL.

Convenience
With the Ford Expedition EL, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Tahoe, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Tahoe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Expedition EL. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Ford Expedition EL have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Tahoe is much wider than the Ford Expedition EL, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Tahoe, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Expedition EL.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Tahoe doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Expedition EL.

Handling
The Chevrolet Tahoe has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford Expedition EL, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Tahoe is clearly the choice over the Ford Expedition EL for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Ford Expedition EL.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Ford Expedition EL. The Chevrolet Tahoe has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Expedition EL.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Tahoe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Expedition EL.
