2016 Volvo XC60 vs. 2016 Ford Expedition Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition than in the Volvo XC60, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Expedition offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC60, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Volvo XC60 as you will with the Ford Expedition, 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). Clearly, the Volvo XC60 is a better financial choice over the Ford Expedition, when considering 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 Volvo XC60 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition.

Dimensions
Since the Volvo XC60 is much slimmer than the Ford Expedition, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Volvo XC60, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Expedition.

Drivetrain
The Volvo XC60 has much lower torque than the Ford Expedition, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Volvo XC60 has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Expedition, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Expedition is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Volvo XC60 has a lot less horsepower than the Ford Expedition.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Volvo XC60 seats a lot fewer people than the Ford Expedition. The Volvo XC60 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Expedition.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Volvo XC60 than that of the Ford Expedition.
