2018 Ford Expedition Outguns General Motors’ SUV Power Ratings20
While the Cadillac Escalade will work to starve off the 2018 Lincoln Navigator, the Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and their larger variants will fend off the 2018 Ford Expedition. Ford has come out swinging this time around and the SUV’s power figures handily outdo General Motors.
Ford Authority reports the 2018 Expedition’s 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine is capable of pumping 400 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. That’s on 93 octane, however, and is only available in the top-spec Platinum model. Bump down to 87 octane and Ford still outdoes the Tahoe/Yukon twins—375 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque are on tap. The Expedition now features dual injection to help boost ratings across the board.
In comparison, the 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe and 2017 GMC Yukon manage 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque from its 5.3-liter V8 engine.
GM has long remained an undisputed king of the body-on-frame segment, but the Expedition may offer consumers a compelling option when it goes on sale this fall.

Hey another Ford article!
Here’s a valuable suggestion to GMA and the writer. Post an article about the Tahoe, then anonymously in the comments make a point about how the Ford out-powers it, and wait to see how many up/down thumbs you get. Then take that as an indicator if you should post a full fledged Ford article on GM Authority. Impromptu market research focus group.
Or, put in a transfer for fxxxAuthority.
LOL, must be desperate for ford authority traffic.
Same content, by the same journalist, same motive!
It’s called click-bait journalism. When a writer lacks the ability to create good articles they use a controversial title to attract views.
Funny how the 6.2 L Yukon Denali with 420 HP is not mentioned–who out-guns who??
He must have missed this one!
Look what else has a naturally aspirated 6.2 liter 2 valve push rod V8, and what the article says about it!
Since i’m being moderated, replace the two $ above with
in your browser.
He brings up a valid point. GM is getting outgunned, time for the Empire to strike back!
Personally, I would like the 6.2 available on all Tahoes and Yukons. Power to the people!
Please, I beg of you to STOP POSTING FORD-CENTRIC ARTICLES HERE! I come here for my GM news, and nothing more. Everything can be related back to GM if you stretch hard enough, and this simply does not belong on this site. That is all.
I think this is probably one way to make GM up the game a bit. I think at this point we all can hope GM up their game in horsepower instead of a few of us being a cry baby about how butt hurt we get when Ford gets “extra” with us. Besides, who knows how the ride and handling of the new versions of the expedition and nav is going to be besides all these engine bragging rights
It is a valid article because GM Products might be in jeopardy due to All Aluminum, Ecoboost V6s, and INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION with great third row leg room Expeditions are coming hard and fast.
It’s not even on sale yet dude I hope you realize that. I do agree with the IRS though
All this backlash. You sound like a bunch of fact hating Trump voters. Nobody wins when people bury their heads in the sand.
Where I live, NYC, the primary GM vehicles present are the Tahoe triplets. They are a constant on Manhattan streets. Can Ford/Lincoln break into this market?
The vehicle mix is different here with FCA being the only Detroit brand with many passenger non livery vehicles on the road–Jeep but a lot of Dodge Charger, too.
I’m convinced that GM is losing the North East.
sdsoie, I hit the thumb up for your comment ,but it did not allow me to ! But all the INFO is wrong , The Top model GMC and the 2018 Tahoe, will offer 6.2 ! Agree with fastyle .
But…and research shows this, people that buy large SUVs , don’t buy V6 ones.
I’d be fine with the GM full size SUV’s if they had IRS and console mounted gear shift.
New TT DOHC V6, New Turbo diesel DOHC V6 , New Chevrolet/GMC Full size trucks SUV’s.
