Ford Expedition vs Chevy/GMC Tahoe/Yukon/Suburban


I'm thinking about getting my wife a new car. We have a 2.5 year old and one due in August. I am looking for some feedback about these cars pros and cons. Thanks in advance

Some people will say Ford just based on the bailouts, but I'm partial to Tahoe/Yukon's.

Buy a Tahoe LT with the DVD entertainment package.

Unless they've changed in the past few years, the interior of Fords are crap. But, I can't say I've heard much good about the build quality of the Chevy's either. Go get a Nissan Armada.

i dont think the expedition will be redesigned, it could easily be discontinued, if that matters to you


the new explorers are really nice though, not as big, but do have 3 rows of seating

Tahoes will hold their value longer then Expos

I like both but the Expedition has more interior options.

i was a die hard ford person...explorer, f-150, expedition for many years. I made the switch to a suburban and would buy another one in a heart beat.

a regular expedition in just a giant explorer. you can not fit strollers/gear in the back with out having to put the third row seats down. with the seats up there is very little room, same thing with a tahoe. we went with the suburban to haul 3 kids with maybe a few more down the road, all the gear they entail as well as pull our camper around.

i never thought i would go the chevy route, but am glad i did.

Projected values, look at the same years with same mileage and equipment.

The interior of my Armada was head and shoulders above the interior of my friends Expedition. The Nissan had padded dashed. The build quality was much better and the fitment of the interior panels was better than the Ford. The Expedition was a vast piece of hard plastic with pieces that felt like they would fall apart at any moment.

Plus they've had a lot of trouble with the new Sync system in them...

Personally, between the two, I'd go Tahoe. The Expeditions are nice, but they seem pretty outdated now...could use a refreshing. Though it's a bit smaller, I think the new Durangos are the nicest in that segment...because, to be honest, the Tahoe is looking a bit old these days as well...

I looked at the 2011 Ford Expedition Limited and the 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ and for me the Tahoe was just nicer all the way around. But the Expedition fold flat third seat was sweet.

I have Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer and a Chevy Suburban LT.

I actually like both.

We find the Chevy is more comfortable on trips (seats and ride).

The Ford is slightly shorter (I think) and is easier to maneuver/park. Nothing like a sedan but definitely easier than the chevy.

Suburban has way more cargo room with 3rd seat up.

Yeah much nicer to push a button to fold the third row seats than have to pull them out manually then store them when not in use.
