Heritage Ford shows advantages of SUV stock over Chevy competition

2018 Explorer, Expedition outpace Equinox and Tahoe, respectively.

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt., Dec. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The roster of new SUVs available at Heritage Ford represents one of the most comprehensive in the entire industry, but that hasn't stopped the competition from doing their best to gain the attention of customers. One of the hardest parts of shopping for a new vehicle is to get reliable information about how one model stacks up to another. The product specialists on the Heritage Ford sales team recognize this problem and continuously work to solve that problem. These experts have done some research to help buyers understand how the 2018 Ford Explorer outpaces the 2018 Chevy Equinox as well as how the 2018 Ford Expedition has more to offer than the new Chevy Tahoe

Nobody can credibly deny the role the Ford Explorer has played in the increasing popularity of the crossover SUV class. In fact, the Explorer platform was one of the charter members of the segment. For the new model year, the 2018 Ford Explorer has some challenges to face from the new 2018 Chevy Equinox.  

However, like in previous years, the 2018 Explorer continues to be a stronger choice in this area of the automotive marketplace than most competitors, including the new Equinox. In short, new Explorer offers more power from the base trim to the top-of-the-line. Additionally, the 2018 Explorer can offer significantly more passenger and cargo space than its Chevy rival. 

When it comes to maximum available capability in the realm of Ford SUVs, the Expedition quickly rises to the top of the list. Examining a head-to-head comparison between the 2018 Ford Expedition and 2018 Chevy Tahoe, the new redesigned Ford vehicle easily dethrones the long-time class favorite. Not only has the 2018 Expedition been completely redesigned, it is now available with a mobile high-speed Wi-Fi hotspot. The 2018 Tahoe has this capability as well, but the system in the new Expedition can support more devices. 

Taking a look at the entry-level powertrains for the new Expedition and Tahoe swings the battle decidedly in favor of the new Ford SUV. Base versions of the 2018 Expedition use a turbocharged, 3.5-liter, V-6 making 375 horsepower and a properly equipped model can tow up more than 9,000 pounds. By comparison, the base engine of the new Tahoe uses a naturally aspirated V-8 with a peak output of a little more than 350 horsepower and a towing capacity of about 8,400 pounds.
