The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe has much for the market to appreciate. However, the 2023 Ford Expedition comes out on top in three main ways. Not only is the 2023 Expedition more powerful at its base level, but many find its interior to be more advanced than that of the new Tahoe. Both vehicles are excellent choices, but the Ford SUV happens to be a more exciting option, especially for those who want a slightly faster SUV. 

Performance is better in some ways for the Ford Expedition 2023

The 2023 Expedition steals the show regarding performance. The full-size Ford SUV comes standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine with a maximum output of 380 horsepower, according to Car and Driver. It can be rear or all-wheel drive and sends the power via a ten-speed automatic transmission. Some more powerful versions of the Ford Expedition have a maximum output of 400 horsepower. 

The real star of the show is the Ford Expedition Timberline. The Timberline edition is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 5.1 seconds. Of course, the lower trims of the Ford SUV take a bit longer to reach 60 miles per hour, but they’re still fast for a vehicle this size. 

The 2023 Chevy Tahoe comes with a 5.3-liter V8 that makes 355 horses. Like the Expedition, the Tahoe has a 10-speed automatic transmission. There is also a 6.2-liter option. The comparable trim of the new Tahoe is a tad bit slower than the new Ford Expedition Timberline. This may not be the most significant difference in the world, but it could benefit some buyers. 

The 2023 Expedition has a more advanced interior

The 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe may be an overall bigger SUV with more space, but the 2023 Expedition’s cabin is a lot more exciting. Not only does the inside of the Ford SUV use top-of-the-line materials and offer cool features for each trim, it simply looks better, according to many. The new Expedition is a full-size SUV that feels like home on wheels and manages to be cozy despite being so large. It may have less storage than the Tahoe, but it’s still more than enough for many buyers. 

The inside of the 2023 Ford Expedition really stands out regarding technology. It comes standard with a 12-inch touchscreen, but buyers can upgrade it to Ford’s 15.5-inch vertical screen. The vertical screens come in some other Ford vehicles, making them look much more modern. This is largely the same setup as the 2022 Ford Expedition. The new Tahoe has a standard 10.2-inch screen.

It’s safer than the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe

Safety is another main reason why the 2023 Chevrolet Tahoe takes a back seat to the 2023 Expedition. While both vehicles are great in this regard, the Ford SUV has a five out of five-star rating for safety from the NHTSA. However, the new Tahoe only received four out of five stars. The full-size Ford SUV got perfect regarding frontal and side crash tests. 

There is much to appreciate about both vehicles. However, the 2023 Ford Expedition is a clear winner in many regards. Perhaps the Tahoe is bigger and has more storage space, but the Expedition is a fully well-rounded vehicle.
