The Destination Charge for the Ford Expedition Max is much higher than that for the Porsche Macan.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Expedition Max transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Porsche Macan.

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

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Ford Expedition Max more than the Porsche Macan, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Ford Expedition Max, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche Macan.
