2020 Ford Expedition vs Chevrolet Tahoe Performance

At first glance, the base V8 on the Chevy Tahoe appears to be better than the Ford Expedition's base V6. Yet the smart engineering from Ford gives the V6 more raw strength by 20 horsepower. Upgrade to the Platinum Expedition trim and you'll gain even more from the same engine reconfigured to achieve 400 horsepower. Ford also carries its smooth, efficient 10-speed transmission across all tiers, while the Chevy comes standard with a six-speed. The top tier, most expensive Chevy Tahoe offers a 10-speed, 420-horsepower engine, but this comes at a high price point.

2020 Ford Expedition vs Chevrolet Tahoe Seating/Storage/Cargo

The Tahoe is more versatile when it comes to seating configurations, with the ability to carry five or nine passengers, though most configurations carry seven or eight like the Expedition. The Tahoe does struggle with leg room in its third row, which may make its greater seating capacity a moot point for older, bigger passengers.

Cargo space is a real issue with the Tahoe, which lags behind its competitors and utilizes a very high loading platform with a low ceiling. The Ford Expedition has a larger, taller, and easier to use cargo space.And if maximum cargo space is a concern, consider the Expedition Max, which offers class-leading cargo capacity.
