The 2015 Chevy Suburban and the 2015 Ford Expedition are long-running competitors for the full-size SUV buyer’s money. They both offer massive hauling capacity, cavernous cargo space, and they’re also becoming more refined and upscale every year. So which one is going to win out if you’re considering a new full-size SUV right now? Take a look at how these two large SUVs compare below.

Powertrain and Performance

The Chevy Suburban comes standard with a muscular and efficient 5.3L V8 engine that makes 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque and is capable of up to 16 mpg city and 23 mpg on the highway according to EPA estimates. The Ford Expedition comes with a smaller, 3.5L V6 that uses turbocharging to produce slightly more power at 365 hp, but a lower fuel economy estimate, with 16 mpg city/22 mpg highway according to the EPA. We think that most drivers here in the Merrillville and Gary area will appreciate saving money, over the negligible horsepower advantage.

Trims and Options

When you look at features and options, you’ll find that the Suburban is simply better equipped than the Expedition. The Suburban comes standard with features like satellite radio, navigation system, HD radio, and standard all-season tires, which are missing in the Ford Expedition. The Chevy Suburban also comes with the sophisticated OnStar telematics system that provides features like automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle assistance, enhanced roadside assistance, and the new OnStar 4G LTE wireless connectivity with in-car WiFi hotspot.

Space and Dimensions

The Chevrolet Suburban has enough space to fit you and your whole family. It offers more front headroom, front and rear hip room, front and rear leg room, and front and rear shoulder room. If you want space to stretch out, you had best go with the Suburban. The Suburban can also fit up to 38.9 cubic feet of cargo with all seats in place, and up to 121.1 cubic feet of cargo total. The Expedition falls well short of those numbers with 18.6 cubic feet and 108.3 cubic feet respectively.
