When investing in a family-friendly powerhouse like the 2021 Ford Expedition or 2021 Chevy Suburban, you want the one that makes the most sense for you. You've seen both driving around Dickson City, Scranton, and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, but may not detect the differences from sight alone.

Let Gibbons Ford show you how these hefty SUVs measure up and what they offer.

Ford Expedition vs Chevy Suburban Space

Enough space in your SUV means you can stretch out and so can your passengers. In the Ford, you'll find 40 inches of head room in the second row, while the Chevy provides 38.9 inches. With shoulder room in the third row, the Expedition tops the Suburban at 64.2 inches and 62.8 inches, respectively.

Here's more about available hip room:

You'll have more wiggle room to get comfy in the Ford.

Ford Expedition vs Chevy Suburban Safety

Both vehicles sport a variety of available and standard safety features, but that's the true difference of what you can get. The Ford gives you the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert and a Lane-Keeping System standard. With the Chevy, you must add the Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.

For extra parking guidance, the Expedition has you covered. Opt for Enhanced Park Assist, and it lends you an extra eye to conquer challenging parking quests, like parallel parking and more. If you drive the Suburban, it only features an optional Front and Rear Park Assist to help you avoid obstacles.

Ford Expedition vs Chevy Suburban Performance

The standard 3.5L EcoBoost® engine in the Ford produces 375 horsepower with 470 lb-ft of torque. You'll also achieve a fulfilling EPA-estimated 17 city/23 highway MPG with this vehicle.

With the Chevy, you get a standard 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine that produces 355 horsepower with 383 lb-ft of torque. It achieves an EPA-estimated 15 city/20 highway MPG.

The Expedition lives up to its name. To help you feel confident on whatever terrain you cross, it offers the available Terrain Management System™. It also offers seven diverse driving modes, including Normal, Sport, Tow/Haul, Eco, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Sand, and Mud/Ruts. Surprisingly, you won't find a comparable Suburban system.

Ford Expedition vs Chevy Suburban Technology

While you're running around in your SUV or on a road trip, you may forget to charge your phone beforehand. In the Ford, add wireless charging to keep your phone in service. The Chevy does not offer anything like this.

Stay connected and welcome your passengers to do the same. The Expedition supplies the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot with enough juice to power up to 10 devices. The Chevy offers an optional Wi-Fi® connection, but it can only charge up to seven devices.

With all that space, you're going to want enough speakers to cover the whole cabin. Get the upgraded premium B&O Sound System by Bang and Olufsen, outfitted with 12 speakers, in the Ford. The most elevated system, the Bose® audio system, only offers 10 speakers in the Chevy.
