How Are the Ford Expedition and GMC Yukon Different?

If you are looking to buy a full-size SUV, you might find yourself asking a question similar to this. At Hixson Automotive of Monroe, we want to answer it for you, showing you how the Ford Expedition and GMC Yukon can offer different things for your life. We are ready to answer all of your questions and help you find the model that is best equipped to drive your family through Rayville.



Many people don't realize the impact that the engine has in an SUV. More power means you'll be able to accelerate faster when you have a full load. The Ford Expedition provides more horsepower and torque with its standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost® than the GMC Yukon makes on its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8. This - and other equipment - helps to give the Expedition the best-in-class tow rating of 9,300 pounds, allowing you to bring your favorite oversized gear along with you. While you are getting more power, Ford has done a good job of including technology that also helps you get better fuel economy in your Expedition, helping you commute from West Monroe, LA without having to stop as often to fill up.


As full-size SUVs are designed to keep passengers as comfortable as possible, you might be surprised to hear that the Expedition offers nearly 50 cubic feet more of total passenger volume. It also offers more cargo space, offering up to 104.6 cubic feet of cargo space compared to the maximum 94.7 cubic feet of the Yukon.


When you are choosing a vehicle that your whole family will be getting into, you will want to make sure it is as safe as possible, and the Expedition fares better in accidents than the Yukon does. The Expedition was rated five-stars by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) because of how well it holds up in various crash scenarios, the Yukon was only rated four-stars. With all of the traffic that can come through Bastrop, LA, you will be more confident in knowing that the Expedition does more to keep you safe.

Package Variety

There are many different packages that can be equipped on both models. If you are looking for driver assistance features, each model has a good variety available for their base models, offering relatively the same thing with minor differences.

The Expedition offers an off-roading package to help you conquer some of the harshest conditions, making any campground within your reach. This package doesn't help just off-roading, but also on loose gravel and other precarious situations that you might find in daily driving.
