2013 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid vs. 2013 Ford Expedition

2013-Chevrolet-Tahoe-HybridIf you’ve been looking for a new family-friendly SUV, visit our Elgin Chevrolet dealership today for the 2013 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid. At Biggers Chevrolet, you can get this fusion of SUV performance and hybrid engine efficiency today! With a starting MSRP of $53,290, you won’t believe all that you get with this hybrid SUV.

That said, there are plenty of SUVs cruising the streets these days, and with all of that competition, it wouldn’t hurt to see how a popular vehicle like the 2013 Ford Expedition stacks up to the Tahoe Hybrid.

Fuel Economy and Performance

When you start looking at new hybrid SUVs, there’s likely one thing at the front of your mind: fuel economy. SUVs used to have a reputation as being gas guzzlers due to their size and performance, but that isn’t the case with the new Tahoe. Chevy’s hybrid gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city. The Expedition only manages 20 mpg on the highway and drops down to a disappointing 14 mpg in the city.

Now, you may fear that you won’t get the power you want out of a hybrid vehicle, considering the improved fuel economy, but that just isn’t the case. The Tahoe actually offers more power and torque than the Expedition – 332 hp to 310 hp and 367 lb-ft to 365 lb-ft, to be exact – giving you the ability to hook up a trailer and head out camping for the weekend without fear.

More Standard Features

Of course with fuel economy and versatility clearly in the Chevy’s corner, maybe the Expedition has something to offer in the way of features? Actually, it doesn’t look that way. Features like power seating, leather appointed seats, remote start, dual-zone climate control, and more, are standard on the Tahoe and either unavailable or costly add-ons on the Expedition.

Better Warranty

When you get a family vehicle, you want it to last, and yet Ford only offers a 60,000-mile powertrain warranty, compared to Chevy’s 100,000-mile warranty. The Tahoe also features a rust warranty for 3-years/36,000-miles; that’s more coverage that Ford is lacking.
