Whether you rely on your Expedition to complete errands around Bradley, pick the kids up from soccer practice in Peotone, undertake the long drive up to Chicago, or all of the above, this top-of-the-line SUV gives you what you need—and much, much more. Just compare the 2016 Ford Expedition to one of its arch competitors, the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban, to see what makes this new Ford SUV so remarkable.

Trims and Prices

First thing’s first: the 2016 Ford Expedition blows the competition out of the water when it comes to trim choice and price: while the Chevrolet Suburban only offers drives three trims, the 2016 Ford Expedition comes in eight distinct and eminently affordable versions:

The Expedition gives drivers from Peotone and Bradley the following choice of trims:

  • The XLT: $45,435;
  • The XLT EL: $48,145;
  • The Limited: $55,145;
  • The Limited EL: $57,795;
  • The King Ranch: $59,375;
  • The Platinum: $60,335;
  • The King Ranch EL: $62,025;
  • And finally, the Platinum: $62,985.

The 2016 Chevrolet Suburban

Meanwhile, the Suburban offers drivers only three options:

  • The LS: $50,895.
  • The LT: $55, 925.
  • And the LTZ: $65,635.

Dynamic Power

Not only does the Expedition provide drivers with a wealth of trim choice and a range of affordable prices, but Ford’s new SUV boasts a colossally powerful engine:

The 2016 Ford Expedition

Powered by a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with Ti-VCT, the Expedition can grind out an unbelievable 365 hp while also generating 420 lb-ft of torque. What’s more, this SUV promises absolutely unprecedented towing capacity: conventionally equipped Expeditions can lug 6,600 lbs, but when outfitted with an optional Heavy-Duty Trailer Towing Package, this vehicle can tow a maximum load of 9,2000 lbs, meaning that drivers from Peotone and Bradley can depend on the Expedition to tow everything from storage trailers to small boats.

The 2016 Chevrolet Suburban

The Suburban’s Gas V8 engine produces comparable horsepower—355 hp—but only 383 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, in terms of towing capacity, the Suburban offers drivers a scant 8,000 lbs.

Interior Space

Just as the Expedition eclipses the Suburban in the areas of trim choice, price, and power, so does Ford’s high-end SUV boast larger interior dimensions and a greater seating capacity:

The 2016 Ford Expedition

No matter whether you’re just driving your child to a doctor’s appointment or taking the whole gang to the movies, the Expedition ensures that you’ll never be lacking in passenger room or cargo volume: with 8 seats, 168.3 cubic feet of passenger volume, and 130.8 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the first row of seats, the Expedition provides space for the whole family, all your luggage, and even your friends as well.

The 2016 Chevrolet Suburban

Here, too, the Suburban can’t compare to the Expedition. With only 7 seats and 121.7 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the first row, drivers from Peotone and Bradly will no doubt find themselves more cramped and less comfortable in the Chevrolet.

Safety First

Trim choice and affordable prices. Rugged and reliable power. Ample passenger seating and cargo volume. The 2016 Ford Expedition promises it all to drivers from central Illinois. But it gets even better: The Expedition boasts a selection of cutting-edge and nationally recognized safety systems.

The 2016 Ford Expedition

Let’s review just a few of the plethora of safety systems and devices the Expedition gives drivers:

  • A Rear View Camera makes backing up and parallel parking simpler.
  • Forward and Reverse Sensing Systems alert you to the presence of objects in front of or behind your Expedition, allowing you to avoid potential collisions.
  • BLIS, with Cross-Traffic Alert, announces to you the threat of vehicles about to cross your path.
  • Unsurprisingly, Ford’s SUV has earned plaudits across the industry, including a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The 2016 Chevrolet Suburban

The Suburban gives you an optional Rear Cross Traffic Alert in its upper-level trim, as well as standard Rear Park Assist and a Rear Vision Camera. But while the Expedition was awarded five stars from the NHTSA, the Suburban only received four.
