Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Expedition Max offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Wagoneer, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford Expedition Max will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Wagoneer.

Convenience
The Ford Expedition Max requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wagoneer, 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 Ford Expedition Max will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wagoneer. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Expedition Max carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wagoneer.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Expedition Max is much slimmer than the Jeep Wagoneer, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Expedition Max, which is slightly longer than the Jeep Wagoneer.

Handling
The Ford Expedition Max has a significantly larger turning radius than the Jeep Wagoneer, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Expedition Max and the Jeep Wagoneer. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Ford Expedition Max as you will in the Jeep Wagoneer.
