The list of competitors for the Expedition includes some of the most popular full-size SUVs, and a pair of newcomers.
GM's Chevy Tahoe, Suburban and GMC Yukon utes have the edge on the Expedition in terms of interior trim quality, engine choices including a Hybrid, and more responsive steering, but the Expedition trumps them with more third-row seat space.
The Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada tackle the domestic utes with a half-step up in size: they're bigger than the standard Expedition, smaller than the long-wheelbase Expedition EL.
The Sequoia has Toyota's fabulously smooth V-8 powertrains underhood, and very high towing figures, as does the Armada--which has a less rich interior, but a ballsy, NASCAR-ish engine note to go with its vast interior room.
