2017 Ford Expedition vs 2017 Chevrolet Suburban
The SUV segment is one of the most popular and crowded classes in the automotive industry. Perfect for families and single adventurers alike, SUVs have come a long way from the hard-to-maneuver and gas-guzzling behemoths of yesterday. Sure, you can still find SUVs with all the interior passenger and cargo space you could ever need, like in the 2017 Ford Expedition, but nowadays, it no longer costs you an arm and a leg at the pump. That’s because SUVs like the new Ford Expedition now focus not only on interior space and power, but fuel efficiency as well.
Two of the most popular SUVs on the market today are the new Ford Expedition and the new Chevrolet Suburban. Both are made right here in the USA, so both have that going for them. Both are surprisingly similar in terms of gas mileage, as well, but as you’ll see in this 2017 Ford Expedition versus 2017 Chevrolet Suburban model comparison, the new Expedition holds a distinct advantage in terms of horsepower, torque and interior volume.

Get More Horsepower, More Torque and More Interior Space with the 2017 Ford Expedition
As we mentioned before, the 2017 Ford Expedition holds a distinct power advantage over the 2017 Chevrolet Suburban. That’s thanks to the new Ford Expedition pumping out 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, compared to only 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque from the new Chevrolet Suburban. And that power advantage comes even as both models are incredibly similar in terms of gas mileage, with the new Chevy Suburban holding such a small fuel efficiency advantage that it really won’t make much of a difference at the pump.
The biggest advantage held by the 2017 Ford Expedition is in terms of interior passenger and cargo space. The new Ford Expedition provides 178.9 cubic-feet of interior volume, which makes the new Chevrolet Suburban’s 122.4 cubic-feet of interior volume pale in comparison.
