2015 Chevy Tahoe vs 2015 Ford Explorer
It isn’t difficult to claim that Ford is perhaps Chevy’s biggest rival and adversary on the market. Sure, there are plenty of brands in the industry and plenty that Chevy is in direct competition with, but as two of the biggest names in North America and with two of the largest lineups it makes sense that they have such a rivalry. We decided to take a look at two of these competing vehicles in comparison to one another by pitting the 2015 Chevy Tahoe vs 2015 Ford Explorer.
Advantages of the 2015 Chevy Tahoe
As you can see by glancing over the table above, the Tahoe is the obvious choice over the Explorer if you’re okay with a bit of a bulkier vehicle. The 2015 Chevy Tahoe trumps the 2015 Ford Explorer in power, with a 65-horsepower boost and well over 100 extra foot-pounds of torque. That kind of power will deliver an much more enjoyable drive whether cruising through the city or taking it on a long-distance road trip with the family. Plus, it gives you the necessary capabilities to allow an extra 3,500 pounds of towing capacity, which might come in handy on some of those road trips.
Another thing that comes in handy on road trips is having plenty of cargo capacity. If you were to fill all the seats with passengers, you would have just over 15.3 cubic feet of space in the cargo area. Drop all the seats down, and the Tahoe can hold 14 extra cubic feet worth of your stuff. More than a road trip, this number would come in handy if you ever need to help a friend move or move yourself. Kid going off to college? Packing their dorm room into your Tahoe will save money compared to renting a truck. Interested in a 2015 Chevy Tahoe of your own? Contact Don Wheaton today!
