2017 Ford Expedition vs. 2017 Buick Enclave Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition than in the Buick Enclave. The Buick Enclave offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Expedition, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Ford Expedition requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Buick Enclave, 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 Ford Expedition will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Buick Enclave, which has a much lower 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 Destination Charge for the Ford Expedition is much higher than that for the Buick Enclave.

Dimensions
The Ford Expedition is about the same width as the Buick Enclave. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Expedition, which is slightly longer than the Buick Enclave.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Expedition does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Buick Enclave.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Expedition is clearly the choice over the Buick Enclave for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Expedition has a little more horsepower than the Buick Enclave.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Expedition and the Buick Enclave. The Ford Expedition has less cargo space than the Buick Enclave, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Expedition is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick Enclave.
