I have only seen two new Expeditions on the road. Look good...Suburban like. Bigger than my Tahoe for sure.

Totally bogus. Axle ratios weren’t even in the same ballpark.
Go to 9:07 to see the stacked deck specs.

Oh geeeeze......I just looked up the town Dacono.
It’s at 5000 ft.
So both of the non turbo SUVs are down 18% hp.

The twin turbo will smoke everything out there, not sure why no one else is adapting this technology! Well Kia is but then they copy everyone's design and power plant. JS

With 10 speed transmissions axle ratio becomes less of a factor. I don't think it would have been very close at sea level. Pretty close to equal horsepower, but the Ford is the lightest of the bunch. And, having an EcoBoost myself, I feel the kick in the seat of my pants everytime I punch it. I didn't feel that in my Tahoe at all. I think the EcoBoost has the wider power band. But, alas, it lost the sound test.


2017 Highland Ridge Ultra Lite UT2704bh.Just right ++
Ford F-150 Ecoboost V6. Very happy.
Honda Ruckus scooter - Great fun.
Suzuki Burgman 400 scooter - Greater fun.
Champion 3100 Inverter Generator - (huge grin)!

So, you don't drive in the mountains? Parts of Arizona are high elevation. Power at altitude is important to a lot of us who tow through the Sierras and the Rockies and the Uintas and all of those other mountain ranges I can't remember the names of. How many tow only at sea level?

Most people that RV actually go places that includes higher elevations. Proves to me the Ford is the most capable for such a task. It boils down to personal preference, all 3 are nice vehicle's and it doesn't make a tinker's darn to most if they are a few seconds later.

To me ergonomics, ride quality, stability, comfort, longevity are important as well.

Ford really seems to have their poop in a group with the new Expedition. You might almost say "it's a jewel".

Incidentally, the eco boost V6 is the ONLY engine available in the Expy. The only real issue (for me anyways) is that when you option up to the Platinum model like we see in the video, the sticker goes north of $70K....

GM is overdue for some serious drivetrain updates...the 5.3 and 6.0 are dinosaurs compared to the EB and the Ram 6.4 Hemi with MDS.
