Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition than in the Land Rover Discovery. 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 Land Rover Discovery.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Expedition as you will with the Land Rover Discovery, 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 Land Rover Discovery. 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 Land Rover Discovery.

Dimensions
The Ford Expedition is a little wider than the Land Rover Discovery, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Land Rover Discovery.

Handling
The Ford Expedition has the same turning radius as the Land Rover Discovery, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
With the Ford Expedition, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Land Rover Discovery. The Ford Expedition has a little more horsepower than the Land Rover Discovery.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Expedition does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Land Rover Discovery.

Utility
The Ford Expedition offers greater seating capacity than the Land Rover Discovery, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Ford Expedition has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Land Rover Discovery.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Expedition is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Land Rover Discovery.
