The 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and the 2015 Ford Expedition are both full-size, truck based SUVs for families that know they need the most capacity, seating, towing ability, and the ability to address even the roughest off-road terrain and harshest weather. These vehicles might not be great on gas, and they might not be the easiest to park, but if you need a real, old-school SUV, then these are two of your leading choices. The question remains—which one is the better choice?

  • Engine Options: The Tahoe comes with a tried-and true naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 that makes ample power for any task. The Ford gets a turbocharged 3.6L V6, that does make slightly more power than the V8 in the Chevy, but their tow ratings are comparable, and you have to deal with more complicated, more expensive repairs, and annoying turbo lag before power kicks in. Plus, the Chevy can run on E85, while the Ford will only take regular unleaded.
  • Fuel Economy: The Tahoe doesn’t have to size down its engine and use turbocharging to achieve better fuel economy estimates than the Expedition. According to the EPA, the most efficient Tahoe gets up to 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway according to the EPA. The Ford is only rated at 16 mpg city/22 mpg highway in the most efficient version.
  • Interior Space: The Chevy Tahoe gives you more front headroom, more front hip room, more front leg room, and more front shoulder room. In back, the Tahoe offers more hip room and shoulder room, and comparable legroom and headroom. The Tahoe has more space for you and your passengers.
  • Warranty: When you purchase any Chevrolet, you get a 5-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, while Ford only provides a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.  The same goes for roadside assistance. Chevy obviously has you covered for longer.
