2021 CHEVROLET TAHOE AND SUBURBAN VS 2020 FORD EXPEDITION: COMPARING SPECS

Our Tale Of The Tape!

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

The official reveal of the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2021 Chevrolet Suburban just happened. This means that immediately everybody will want to know how they compare to the current title contender, the 2020 Ford Expedition, as well as its long-wheelbase version, the Expedition MAX. Our tale of the tape breaks down key specification between the competing SUV products, with the outgoing Tahoe and Suburban thrown in for good measure.

The 2020 Ford Expedition is all-new as of a year ago, and it is nothing short of impressive. Be it the fit and finish, the technology, or simply its magic-carpet-like ride thanks to its independent rear suspension, the full-sized American SUV is a segment leader, even if the overall sales don’t quite reflect it. With the all-new Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GM is going back on the offensive, and the ball will be in Ford’s court to see if it can hold the ground it has so far gained against the two Bowtie Brand icons. It’s a heavyweight title fight worth getting excited for.
