The 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe and the 2017 Ford Expedition are both full-size, American-made, sport utility vehicles that promise your family the utility and capability that you need. If three rows of comfortable seating and ample towing and hauling capacity are both on your list of requirements, then these two models are worth considering. Take a closer look at how they compare below.

Powertrains and Performance

One thing that you have to think about when you’re shopping for a large SUV is fuel economy. With a vehicle that’s inherently less efficient, every mile per gallon counts for even more. That’s why it’s such a big deal that the Chevy Tahoe earns 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway, putting it ahead of the other models in this class. The Ford Expedition is rated at 15 mpg city/21 mpg highway based on EPA estimates.

Capacity and Capability

The Chevy Tahoe is able to haul up to 1,720 pounds worth of payload. The Ford Expedition can carry up to 1,640 pounds worth of payload. Both of these hard-working trucks can pull up to 6,600 pounds when properly equipped.

Comfort and Convenience

The Chevy Tahoe offers more space in the cabin with more front legroom, front headroom, front and rear hip room, and shoulder room in all rows. The Tahoe also gives you 8-way power adjustable front seats, while the Expedition only gets a 6-way power driver seat, and a manually adjustable passenger seat.

The Tahoe also offers the convenience of 24-months/24,000-miles worth of maintenance coverage included in the purchase price. The Ford does not get any maintenance included.
