2016 Ford Expedition vs. 2015 Volkswagen Touareg Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition than in the Volkswagen Touareg. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Expedition and the Volkswagen Touareg.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Expedition as you will with the Volkswagen Touareg, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Touareg. 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 Volkswagen Touareg.

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 Volkswagen Touareg.

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

Performance
With the Volkswagen Touareg, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Ford Expedition. The Ford Expedition has a little more horsepower than the Volkswagen Touareg.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Ford Expedition more than the Volkswagen Touareg, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Ford Expedition, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen Touareg.
