Better SUV: Ford Expedition or Chevy Suburban?

This is more horsepower than you can get in the Suburban. In fact, the 355-horsepower engine for the Suburban is the only available option for this Chevy.

Are you curious about torque? The Ford still blows the Chevy out of the water with 480 pound-feet of torque compared to the 383 pound-feet of torque provided by the Suburban. For an SUV of this size, torque is often more important than horsepower, and the Expedition has loads more of it than the Suburban.

All that power is great, but what about efficiency? Normally more power and more torque mean less efficiency, but through the use of innovative Ford technology like EcoBoost, Ford surpasses the Suburban in efficiency while providing more of everything else.

Both the Suburban and the Expedition are about the same size, especially with the longer Expedition MAX, and they both offer seating for 8 passengers. Outside of that, the Expedition is overall a better vehicle.
