2017 Porsche Macan vs. 2016 Ford Expedition EL Review

Comparison Review

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 Porsche Macan is somewhat more expensive 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. The Porsche Macan carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition EL.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche Macan is much slimmer than the Ford Expedition EL, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Porsche Macan, 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 Porsche Macan doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Expedition EL.

Handling
The Porsche Macan 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
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Expedition EL is clearly the choice over the Porsche Macan for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Porsche Macan and the Ford Expedition EL.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Porsche Macan seats a lot fewer people than the Ford Expedition EL. The Porsche Macan has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Expedition EL.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Porsche Macan than that of the Ford Expedition EL.
