2016 Volvo XC90 vs. 2016 Ford Expedition EL Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition EL than in the Volvo XC90, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Expedition EL offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC90, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Ford Expedition EL, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Volvo XC90, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Volvo XC90 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Volvo XC90 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition EL.

Dimensions
The Volvo XC90 is about the same width as the Ford Expedition EL. If you go with the Volvo XC90, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Expedition EL.

Drivetrain
The Volvo XC90 has much lower torque than the Ford Expedition EL, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Expedition EL is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC90 for pulling heavy loads. The Volvo XC90 has a little less horsepower than the Ford Expedition EL.

Utility
The Volvo XC90 has less seating than the Ford Expedition EL, making the Ford Expedition EL the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Volvo XC90 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 Volvo XC90 than that of the Ford Expedition EL.
