2016 Ford Expedition vs. 2017 Ford Explorer Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Ford Expedition than the Ford Explorer. The Ford Explorer will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Expedition.

Convenience
The Ford Expedition requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Explorer, 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 Ford Explorer, 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 Ford Explorer.

Dimensions
The Ford Expedition is about the same width as the Ford Explorer. 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 Ford Explorer.

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 Ford Explorer.

Handling
The Ford Expedition has a larger turning radius than the Ford Explorer, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Ford Expedition offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Explorer, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Ford Expedition, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Ford Explorer.

Warranty
The Ford Expedition comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Explorer.
