Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition Max than in the Chevrolet Suburban, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Suburban offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Expedition Max, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Ford Expedition Max requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Suburban, making it more convenient to drive.

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 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 Chevrolet Suburban carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Expedition Max.

Dimensions
When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Suburban takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Expedition Max.

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 Max.

Handling
The Chevrolet Suburban has the same turning radius as the Ford Expedition Max, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Ford Expedition Max, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than with the Chevrolet Suburban. The Chevrolet Suburban has a little less horsepower than the Ford Expedition Max.

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 Max. The Chevrolet Suburban has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Ford Expedition Max.

Warranty
