2022 Chevrolet Tahoe vs 2022 Ford Expedition

It’s not hard to see the appeal of a full-size SUV when you have a growing family. These people-haulers offer loads of versatility between their three rows of seating and expansive cargo space. So how do you decide which SUV is the best fit for your family? 

Let’s take a closer look at two of the most popular vehicles in this category, the 2022 Ford Expedition and 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe, and figure out which one is right for you.

While the interior’s versatility may be what initially drew you to a full-size SUV, it’s the exterior that will garner everyone’s undivided attention. The new 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2022 Ford Expedition turn heads with their chiseled bodies, wide stances, and bold front ends.
