2017 Ford Expedition vs 2017 Chevy Tahoe

Serving Seneca, Anderson, and Greenville, SC

The 2017 Ford Expedition is an SUV that appeals to families with a preference for premium amenities and powerful performance. As a full-size SUV, the 2017 Chevy Tahoe is also designed with families in mind. Both models offer three rows of seats for up to eight occupants. Powered by the 3.5 L EcoBoost engine, the Ford Expedition delivers better performance than the Chevy Tahoe. This Ford SUV also has advanced off-road capabilities thanks to the Control Trac 4x4 system and Hill Descent Control. Another heavy-duty highlight of the Expedition is the 9,200-pound towing capacity.

Powertrain

The 2017 Ford Expedition boasts the 3.5 L EcoBoost engine that is capable of generating up to 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. Powered by Gasoline Direct Injection, this signature V6 engine has twin intercooled turbochargers that optimize performance in demanding conditions. Additionally, the EcoBoost engine has a valve-train with Twin independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) for precise combustion. The Chevy Tahoe's 5.3 L EcoTec V8 engine only offers a peak output of 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. Featuring a gearbox with six speed ratios, the Ford Expedition's SelectShift automatic transmission system is superior to the Chevy Tahoe's standard six-speed automatic transmission. The SelectShift technology includes the Tow/Haul Mode that can be easily activated to improve towing.

Technology & Features

When equipped with the Control Trac 4x4 system, the 2017 Ford Expedition gets excellent traction on paved surfaces and rough trails. This advanced drivetrain can seamlessly switch between Four-Wheel Drive and Rear-Wheel Drive according to road conditions. Engineered to provide balance for low-speed crawls on hills, Hill Descent Control is integrated into the Control Trac 4x4 system. Additionally, the Hill Start Assist gives this Ford SUV a sufficient boost to drive against steep gradients. The Ford Expedition won't shake or vibrate excessively thanks to the Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) System that absorbs the harshest bumps and grinds from the road. When it comes to towing, this muscular Ford is strong enough to pull a maximum of 9,200 pounds. The vehicle's Trailer Sway Control is a standard feature that facilitates towing. The Ford Expedition may also be fitted with the Trailer Brake Controller, which is part of the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package.

Comfort and Interior

The 2017 Ford Expedition is available with a 10-way power driver's seat that is linked to a memory system. Even the vehicle's brake pedal and accelerator can be easily adjusted with the touch of a button. Additionally, the Expedition's power side mirrors can be instantly set to the desirable setting via a memory function. This Ford SUV can be equipped with the PowerFold seats in the third row. Such signature seats are much easier to move and adjust compared to the traditional split-folding seats in the Chevy Tahoe. The Expedition's seats in the second row also come with the patented CenterSlide technology. With up to nine total cup holders, this Ford allows all of its occupants to bring along their favorite beverages for road trips. Some other convenient amenities in the Expedition include a 110-v power outlet and universal garage door opener.
