2015 Ford Expedition vs 2015 Chevy Tahoe
When it comes to the full-size SUV segment, the Expedition and Tahoe are two of the top options, as they are not only extremely affordable, but capable as well. When it comes down to it, however, one of the vehicles is able to offer a bit more in terms of power and space—two capabilities that consumers in the market for one of the larger utility vehicles look for. Since the Expedition and Tahoe are quite similar, and often serve as the two final options for buyers, we thought it would be helpful to make the decision-making process a bit easier by taking a more in-depth look at the 2015 Ford Expedition vs 2015 Chevy Tahoe.
The Expedition and Tahoe are great options for comparing as they both received some big changes for the 2015 model year. The Ford offering received a full refresh which included a number of styling changes as well as a brand-new engine. The Tahoe also got some tweaks, but as it was completely redesigned, the changes are far more apparent. Despite the full set of changes, however, the Expedition holds an edge over the Tahoe.
Take the cargo capacity into account. With the two back row of seats collapsed, the Expedition is able to accommodate as much as 130.8 cubic feet of cargo, which is even more than some of the minivans on the market. The Tahoe, however, only offers 94.7 cubic feet, which is quite limiting if you plan to use the SUV to store or haul.
Performance of the 2015 Ford Expedition
In the past, the Expedition was offered exclusively with a V8, but for the 2015 model year, that engine has been scrapped and replaced with a smaller 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, which comes turbocharged, allowing it to produce 365 horsepower, a rating that is actually higher than the eight-cylinder of the past. The number is also higher than the one found in the Tahoe. Even though the Chevy offering has a massive 5.3-liter V8, it falls short in the power department, and as more cylinders come into play, it’s also not as fuel efficient.
To top it all off, the Expedition comes in at a starting price that is a bit more affordable than the price of the all-new Tahoe. Both of the vehicles come in above $40,000, and as they have an insane amount of space and come equipped with a slew of luxury features, the price is undoubtedly justified. However, if you are looking to get yourself into the more affordable option, the Expedition, which is a little more than $2,000 more affordable than the Tahoe, is definitely the vehicle that you’ll want to opt for.
