Smithfield Chevy Families Compare The
2019 Chevrolet Suburban vs 2019 Ford Expedition

The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban is a full-size SUV that’s perfect for big families. With seating for nine, there’s enough room to carry large groups of people in style and comfort. The sophisticated interior impresses customers at the Smithfield Chevrolet dealer, and the choice of V8 engines provide all the power needed for quick acceleration from off the line. The ride is smooth and quiet, and the Suburban has a long list of standard features. It’s no surprise the Suburban is one of America’s most popular full-size SUVs.

The Chevrolet Suburban comes with a standard automatic climate control system, a feature that’s only available on the Expedition as an option. Suburban owners will also appreciate the standard 8-inch touchscreen. The Expedition’s standard display is only 4.2-inches and it’s not a touchscreen.

It’s an unfortunate fact that people sometimes exit their vehicles leaving a baby or pet behind in the backseat. The Chevrolet Suburban’s Rear Seat Reminder feature solves that problem. The system works by monitoring the Suburban’s doors. If either rear door is opened and closed before the driver starts the vehicle, the system is activated. When the driver switches the vehicle off, an audible and visible alert warns the driver to check the back seat before existing the vehicle. The Ford Expedition doesn’t offer this potentially life-saving feature.

In The End

The 2019 Chevrolet Suburban and the 2019 Ford Exhibition are both excellent SUVs, but there can only be one winner of this head-to-head competition. When you look at the categories that matter, including the price, the engines, cargo space, comfort and features, the Suburban outclasses the Expedition. That’s why we declare the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban the winner.
