Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition than in the Genesis GV80. The Ford Expedition will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Genesis GV80.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Expedition as you will with the Genesis GV80, 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). The Ford Expedition is somewhat more expensive than the Genesis GV80. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Expedition is much higher than that for the Genesis GV80.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Expedition is much wider than the Genesis GV80, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Expedition, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Genesis GV80.

Handling
The Ford Expedition has a larger turning radius than the Genesis GV80, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Expedition is clearly the choice over the Genesis GV80 for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Expedition and the Genesis GV80.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Expedition transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Genesis GV80.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Ford Expedition more than the Genesis GV80, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Expedition is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Genesis GV80.
