2018 Ford Expedition: More Power, More Passenger Space and More Capability than the 2018 Dodge Durango
As you can see in the table above, everything the new Dodge Durango can do, the new Ford Expedition can do better. And it all starts under the hood. That’s because the 2018 Ford Expedition offers 375 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, while the 2018 Dodge Durango can only offer 295 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Now, it’s true that these are the power numbers for the new Durango’s base engine, but it should be noted that you’d have to shell out for the 2018 Durango’s top-of-the-line engine in order to beat the new Expedition’s power numbers. And, even then, the difference is minimal. Put simply, two of the three 2018 Durango engine options can’t hold a candle to the 2018 Expedition’s engine, while it’s third – and most expensive – engine barely can.
And while that third engine does offer slightly more power, it still can’t match the capability of the new Expedition. That’s because the 2018 Ford Expedition can tow up to 9,300 pounds, while the 2018 Dodge Durango can only tow up to 8,700 pounds. And that’s with its most expensive engine. That number drops quite a bit when equipped with one of the other two engines.
The new Ford Expedition also offers far more passenger space than the new Dodge Durango. In fact, the 2018 Expedition provides 171.9 cubic-feet of total passenger volume, while the 2018 Durango provides only 133.9 cubic-feet.
