Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X6 as you will with the Ford Expedition Max, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X6 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Expedition Max. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X6 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition Max.

Dimensions
The BMW X6 is a little narrower than the Ford Expedition Max, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the BMW X6, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Expedition Max.

Drivetrain
The BMW X6 has much lower torque than the Ford Expedition Max, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford Expedition Max is clearly the choice over the BMW X6 for pulling heavy loads. The BMW X6 has a little less horsepower than the Ford Expedition Max.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the BMW X6 seats a lot fewer people than the Ford Expedition Max.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X6 than that of the Ford Expedition Max.
