2018 Ford Expedition vs 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe

New Ford cars, trucks and SUVs are always more powerful, more capable and more efficient than their previous model year counterparts, but there’s perhaps never been a bigger improvement from one model year to the next than the improvements made from the 2017 Ford Expedition to the 2018 Ford Expedition.

In all honesty, the list of updates and upgrades for the new Ford Expedition lineup is so long that we don’t know where to start. But since we like to say it all starts under the hood, we’ll begin there, where you’ll find an all-new engine and an all-new ten-speed automatic transmission. This brand-new powertrain offers you best-in-class fuel efficiency ratings and a max towing rating that is also best-in-class. You can see the gas mileage in the table above, and we’ll talk about that in a moment, but in terms of towing, the 2018 Expedition lineup can trailer up to 9,300 pounds. And even though it’s not in the table, we’ll kick off this 2018 Ford Expedition versus 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe model comparison by telling you the 2018 Tahoe can trailer up to only 8,600 pounds.
