The 2023 Ford Expedition is considered one of the best full-size SUVs on the market. However, it’s not the only quality option buyers can choose from. The 2023 Chevrolet Suburban also has much going for itself. Not only does it offer similar performance to the new Ford Expedition, but it comes out on top regarding the interior. 

Here’s how this full-size SUV compares to the 2023 Ford Expedition.

According to Car and Driver, compared to the Chevy Suburban 2022, the latest model is 23 cubic feet longer.

The Chevy Suburban may not be as powerful as the 2023 Ford Expedition. However, the two rivals are pretty similar in this regard. The 2023 Chevrolet Suburban comes standard with a 5.3-liter V8 engine with a maximum output of 355 horsepower. It uses a 10-speed automatic transmission and can be rear or all-wheel drive.  This is nearly identical to the Chevy Suburban 2022.

The new Expedition has a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine under its hood. It has a maximum output of 380 horsepower and also uses a 10-speed transmission. Regarding speed, the Chevy Suburban gets from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 7.6 seconds. However, the 2023 Ford Expedition does so in 6.2 seconds, but higher trims are much quicker.

Full size SUVs are not usually cheap. This is true for both the Expedition and the new Suburban. The Chevy option costs more as it starts at $58,795. The Expedition comes in at $56,970. These prices are before any extras are added to either vehicle. Potential buyers should keep in mind that both can get fairly expensive. 

Both the new Suburban and the Expedition are well-reviewed full size SUVs. However, the extra space in the Suburban offers numerous opportunities to buyers. The Expedition may have better technology, but many find the inside of the Suburban much more elegant and modern.
