How Do They Stack Up?

Performance Safety Interior
When it comes to SUVs, performance is paramount for Florida families. The Chevy Tahoe High Country’s standard V8 engine provides 420 horsepower, while the Ford Expedition Platinum’s standard 3.5L turbo V6 engine only offers 400. That’s an extra kick you’d be missing when you’re cruising through the streets of Fort Pierce. The Chevy Tahoe’s powerful engine is also more efficient than the Ford Expedition’s thanks to its engine control system. This feature allows some of the engine’s cylinders to shut down, so you’re not wasting any power. The Expedition, on the other hand, isn’t capable of shutting down engine cylinders, even when they’re not in use.

According to J.D. Power and Associates’ 2019 survey, Chevrolet vehicles are more reliable than Fords. In the ranking, Ford ranks twelve spots below Chevy. In addition to that, the Tahoe’s corrosion warranty is a year longer than the Expedition’s. An entire year in a less efficient, less dependable SUV is a lot of time for something to go wrong. So don’t take the chance. Drive a Chevy Tahoe.

In a family vehicle, superior safety is a must. While both the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Ford Expedition have standard airbags, available all-wheel drive, crash mitigating brakes, blind-spot warning systems, and more, the Tahoe has some features that the Expedition lacks. The Chevy has a standard front seat center airbag, which protects both the driver and the shotgun passenger from further injuries in side collisions that may be caused by striking each other on impact.

Florida drivers’ vehicles are indeed their first line of defense in accidents, but hundreds of infants and young children have died when the car was parked by being forgotten in the back seat. Chevy has created a system to try to prevent this. If you opened the rear door before starting your vehicle, the Tahoe will remind you to check the back seat once you’ve arrived at your destination. The Expedition, on the other hand, does not offer a rear-seat reminder.

Although the Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition are about the same size, the Tahoe’s interior outshines the Expedition’s. Take more of your loved ones on a journey with the Tahoe’s optional seating for nine passengers; the Expedition can only handle eight. The Tahoe’s ride is also more comfortable than the Expedition’s, thanks to its more spacious headroom and legroom.

Even when you’re driving solo, the Tahoe is the superior option. It boasts 122.9 cubic feet of total cargo space while the Expedition only has 104.6 cubic feet. So go ahead, transport those moving boxes. Take that diving equipment to the beach. Pick up those groceries for your 10-person dinner party. The Tahoe can handle it.

Not only does the Tahoe have more utilitarian value than the Expedition, it also has a more ergonomic cabin for a superior driving experience. The Tahoe offers an available heads-up display that projects vital information such as speed before the driver, so you won’t have to avert your eyes from the road. The Chevy Tahoe also has rain-sensitive windshield wipers that automatically adjust their speed based on the amount of rainfall. This allows you to travel through the unpredictable Florida weather without constantly fiddling with the wipers. These are just a few of the many convenient features you won’t find in the Ford Expedition.
