Regardless of which one you get, this quartet from General Motors has a slight edge in interior quality, but the Ford wins with better room in the third row.
Plus, the Ford offers a power-folding third-row option, and with that, the seat automatically folds flat into the floor.
This is a big plus over the GMs.
However, the GMs strike back with more engine choices (including a hybrid) and a more supple-riding suspension, but the Ford offers what some consider more responsive handling.
Then again, we're discussing a vehicle that weighs almost three tons, so regardless of its responsiveness, we're not talking Corvette- or Mustang-type handling here.
Both the Toyota and Nissan are offered in one size—larger than the standard Expedition but not quite as enormous as the long-wheelbase Expedition EL.
