Ford Expedition CapabilitiesMost SUVs these days are crossover vehicles, but you can still find a large SUV or two that espouses the traditional body-on-frame design. In this 2019 Ford Expedition vs. Chevy Tahoe comparison, we at Peacock Ford want to show you how two top utility vehicles in the segment measure up.

Which has the capabilities you need for your daily drive in Maitland, Orlando, and Winter Park? See what you learn from this article, and then you can make an informed decision. We're excited to give you a look at these incredible SUVs!

Expedition vs Tahoe: Cargo Space & Storage

Ford Expedition Interior SpaceWhen you shop for a vehicle like the 2019 Expedition or Tahoe, you expect lots of space to store all your essentials. The Chevy SUV lays a strong foundation, with more than 15 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the third row of seats (not unlike the trunk space in many midsize sedans).

However, the Ford SUV offers even more room, with roughly 21 cubic feet behind the third row. Luggage for a family trip should fit snugly in that space. You'll find the Expedition's available cargo management system useful, too. Its adjustable shelf (behind the third row) keeps items in place, even when the vehicle is at an incline.

With all but the front seats folded, the Tahoe has nearly 95 cubic feet of cavernous cargo space. As impressive as that is, the Expedition does better: You'll find up to 104.6 cubic feet available-or 121.5 cubic feet in the extended Expedition Max!

SUV Performance Specs

The Ford Expedition and Chevy Tahoe both have plenty of power under the hood. The base engine in the former is an EcoBoost® twin-turbocharged V6, which puts out an impressive 375 horsepower. The standard powerplant in the Tahoe, a vigorous V8, is close behind, with an output of 355 horsepower.

Need to tow with your next new SUV? The Tahoe can handle up to 8,600 pounds, which is enough to tow a 25-plus-foot-long camping trailer with ease. However, the Expedition tops this category, with a max trailering capacity of 9,300 pounds when properly equipped.   

Both SUVs use smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmissions, designed to optimize performance and fuel economy in one swoop.

Advanced Technology for the Road

Ford Expedition Technology FeaturesYou can find plenty of intriguing features in the 2019 Expedition and Tahoe. The Ford SUV and Chevy SUV both offer driver-monitoring technology that lets you set limits on your teenage driver's speed, audio, and seatbelt use, so you can rest easier when they get behind the wheel.

Ready to listen to your music the way it was meant to be heard? In the Tahoe, multiple available premium Bose® audio systems (9-speaker and 10-speaker) deliver the crisp, clear sounds you've been waiting for.

However, the Expedition's optional 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen® 3D Advanced Sound System is more immersive with even more speakers: It transforms the ride into your own personal concert hall.
