      @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.

      Um. For 80,000, you can get a Ranger Rover velar, an Escalade, or an Audi truck! Even a Lexus truck lol

      Yeah, you can also buy like 4 Toyota Corollas. What's your point? The Range Rover and Escalade, comparably spec'd, end up at a higher price point than these two. I'm not sure which Audi offers the space these two do.

      Remember everyone there's a new Tahoe coming, the Expedition can barely contend with this one. GM is killing the game.

      I like the 2018 Ford expedition. We have a 2014 e l XLT...... lost our 2001 due to heavy fog..... had an opportunity to rent a 2017 Chevy Tahoe; now I'll give you this the Tahoe was pretty comfortable sitting when you were sitting upfront or in the middle row; but the back was too claustrophobic; plus you didn't head legroom; and when you corner in the truck it always felt like it was about to tip over( I guess top heaviness) but when we bought a 2014 expedition it just hug the road more. The weight difference was very obvious the Tahoe was much much lighter and that was good just not when you were going around curves. The take-off is phenomenal in both trucks!! My wife parents are up in age and my grandmother. Sometimes we take them out on weekend rides and they all agree that the EL XLT is very comfortable and tailor fitted!!; haven't had a chance to try out the 2018 expedition but I hope they stuck to those riding qualities that the 2014 possessed are improved on it....

      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

      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.
