Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Suburban offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Ford Expedition, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Suburban offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Expedition, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

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

Dimensions
If you go with the Chevrolet Suburban, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Ford Expedition.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Suburban doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Expedition.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Suburban and the Ford Expedition. With the Chevrolet Suburban, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Ford Expedition.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Suburban comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Expedition.
