      @Mr. Box that is the dumbest thing ever in my opinion the Ford should have won by more points

      +miguel arias I hate to break it to you, but the Expedition has won every single comparison out there. Everything from this review to Car and Driver. After many years of Food conceding to GM in this market, it's just simply not the case now. Indeed, the Tahoe recently lost to the Expedition AND Armada in a recent comparison.

      +lray801 what it comes down to is Tahoe is the better vehicle but the reviewer is a Ford guy. Don't get me wrong, the Ford is great, but the Chevy is better. I know I'm going to get shit for saying that, but it's true. Ford has been just passing the crash test ratings in recent times, but reviews won't point that out.

      Mr. Box You're kidding right? Is it the reviewer's fault that GM hasn't does anything with the Tahoe since 2015? No. Is it Ford's? No.
      This review may have flaws, but personal bias isn't one. The biggest one? The Tahoe itself.
      What it boils down to is GM got caught with their pants down and the Expedition came to play. Same with the Navigator (They won't even provide an Escalade for some comparison reviews).
      As for Ford copying GM, I'd love to have specifics. Considering Ford pioneered this segment with the Expedition, and Navigator, it's easy to argue that GM, in fact, copied Ford.
      You sound a bit like a pissed off fan boy.

      I am leaving a dislike on this video because:

      It’s basically comparing a 2015 vehicle to a 2018 one

      At some parts, you say the Ford is better at something u talk more about that one thing and it gained 2 points because of this

      You use your personal opinion on 2 points on the Ford

      You never realize how much Ford copies Chevrolet

      The Chevy has a few things that it’s significantly better than Ford at and you only give it half a point when U give the Ford a full point for vise versa

      You fanboy on Ford. I can tell by most of the problems above

      NOTE:I will be exposing this video on my YouTube.

      Expedition deserves a point for chrome mirror vs tahoe's painted one. And gear shifter on Tahoe is dated. Does Tahoe seat tilt up w a car seat in place, to access 3rd row? No mention of reliability or crash testing. Expedition is #1 for now

      Tbh, I own a 2012 Ford Expedition XLT. It's a great work truck, no fancy wanxy wall-nut dash. Just a big ol' V8 and some toughness

      I have a 2018 Suburban LS, my 5th Suburban over 20 years. Before I owned all the high end luxury cut model versions. I was looking at the 2018 Premiere model. Nice ride just too much on price! I drove the LS. I was surprised how much it had vs. the Premiere. GMAC gave me a great deal and I haven’t been happier with a Suburban.
      I remember a few friends with the early Expeditions, what a nightmare those cars were from the beginning! Now Ford wants us to believe their 6 cylinder will some how make it better! No thanks! I’ll stick with my tried and true!

      It's all going to come down to personal preference. They both are nice vehicles but for me, the better mileage range and the overhead rear entertainment system sold me on the Tahoe.

      You listed expedition torque rating at 400 and it’s really 475. Big difference

      Ford literally copied everything on the tahoe. And added a lighter frame, a turbo v6 & more horsepower but since the ford is a little newer & more futuristic. I'd take the ford. I've driven both for my job & that new ford is amazing nice. Lighter quicker bigger, more room. Fancier. But come on ford, that interior has been in trucks my entire life. You don't just build work trucks.. make it luxurious

      GM is shit and behind. Ford did it again better inside and out! The new navigator blows away the Escalade! More hp even with a 3.5 v6 make a 5.0 eco boast and you would have way more power then the 6.2.
