Ford Explorer vs Chevy Tahoe Performance

With five trim levels, the Ford Explorer offers drivers the ability to customize their everyday driving experience while providing world-class performance options, including:

  • 3.5-liter V6 engine that provides 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine with 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine that delivers 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque

This power is effortlessly controlled via a six-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with the choice between front-wheel or an intelligent four-wheel-drivetrain that results in remarkably nimble handling. Drivers who opt for the available Terrain Management System can experience four distinct driving modes, making a seamless transition from a comfortable highway cruiser to a tough, off-road adventurer.

For its part, the Chevy Tahoe offers drivers three trim levels with two commanding engine options. All models come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission and a premium smooth ride suspension, which helps isolate the cabin to decrease bumps and shaking while driving over uneven pavement. Front-wheel drivetrain is standard while four-wheel-drive is available.

Ford Explorer vs Chevy Tahoe Interior and Technology

Step inside to either model and drivers will find spacious and well-designed cabins that provide up to three rows of seating-perfect for families looking for a safe and comfortable vehicle that can take the edge off long road-trips or the busy afternoon carpool.

One important area Ford outperforms is in available cargo space. While the Explorer delivers a class-leading 21 cubic ft. of cargo volume behind the third row, the Tahoe offers a cramped 15.3 cubic ft. This certainly creates a problem for Tahoe drivers trying to fit a full cabin of passengers and all their gear.

Advanced Technology Features

When it comes to keeping the family comfortable and connected, the Explorer offers a host of premium features like dual-zone automatic temperature control, a rearview back-up camera, and leather-trimmed seats and steering wheel, along with premium tech including:

  • SYNC® 3 with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™
  • Sony® Premium Audio
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • Four smart-charging USB ports and power outlets located throughout the cabin

A twin-panel moonroof, which allows fresh air and light to flood throughout the entire seating area, is also available.

Meanwhile, the Chevy Tahoe provides its own suite of convenient features and technology, like: an 8-inch Chevrolet MyLink® touchscreen display, steering wheel controls, 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot, and a remote start system for those chilly winter mornings.

Which SUV is Right for You?

While both SUVs offer outstanding qualities in terms of performance, interior design, and advanced tech, it's obvious the Ford Explorer beats out the Tahoe in almost every category.
