Forget the Suburban!
By RICH on


2008 Ford Expedition EL SSV Fleet 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)


Spent 1 week test driving several Suburbans (LTZ/ZR1) but I constantly went back to the Expedition. This is my first Ford so I did my research. The Expedition has significant more leg room for the 3rd row which is great for adults but is also huge when you have 2 car seats back there. The 3rd row fold flat feature carries significant weight against the Chevy Suburban. The actual trunk space is 1" shorter than Suburban but is almost 3" wider. Compare to a comparable LTZ the Ford is $8000 less and still has more features. The 6 speed transmission is smooth and responsive. The ride is much better than the Suburban. The independent rear suspension on Ford is much more forgiving as well.

Best Features

Rear view camera in the rear view mirror. The Chevy requires you to purchase the $4000 navigation system to get the rear camera. Air condition seats (great for North Carolina). THX surround sound system is awesome! Interior is nicer in Ford. 6 speed transmission makes a huge difference.

Worst Features

Integrated blue tooth for phone. An OnStar like feature
