    Which one does that with the throttle?

    The Chevy 5.3s that I’ve driven (2014+)

    Why is that bad? It gives you more precise control at low speed, like when backing a trailer. Straight line, or even bottom weighted throttles try to trick you into thinking the truck is more powerful than it really is.

    I'm a Ford guy. If you'd asked this question a year ago, I'd say Tahoe/Suburban. But the new Expedition is nicer IMO. I hated the old, outdated Expedition, but the new one is so much nicer in every way. It gets my vote.

    Can’t argue the drivetrain but no extended version. If you have the 3rd row up you can’t fit much more than a carry-on back there. Plus the interior is so dated it makes the Chevy look downright futuristic.

    Completely personal preference. To me it feels like a huge delay in response.

    Just bought the wife a new 2018 Expedition Limited for a few reasons. I have a 2018 F250 Lariet and really liked how intuitive and easy to use all of the features are on the dash including Sync. Having driven (rented) a car from almost every manufacturer over the last couple years I found the Ford system easier and more user friendly. Liked the fact that the SUV can tow up to 9,300 lbs. so I don't always have to use my F250 to tow the dirty bikes around in the enclosed trailer. The motor has a surprising amount of power considering the size of the vehicle plus it gets 20+ MPG on the highway. Last week I rented a 2018 Suburban for a long work related road trip (to avoid miles on my truck) and found the vehicle lacking terribly in the acceleration and MPG department. Add to it the 150k mile/8 year warranty which gives me piece of mind for longevity. All that, plus the fact that my wife can not get over how awesome her new car is.......... Priceless.

    All this talk about Ford vs. Chevy being better is mostly non-sense. Both manufacturers make cars that last. Especially ones that have been in production for awhile. I usually stray away from first year motors/trans etc. and the Expedition has a trusted power plant. End of the day it all comes down to personal preference. I have always loved Ford trucks and SUV's. I use to hate renting Chevy trucks and SUV's in the past but they were always more common. That is up until the latest gen of the Tahoe. I think they finally have a better formula moving forward.

    and on used porsche 911's (esp. GT2/3) people won't even buy them if the PPI dealer reads out a rev limit over step ....
  10. Engine hours I get, even my Jeep has that but boats have a breakdown of hours.
  11. Plus the current model will remain current until 2022 (2023 model year vehicle )

    Probably a good thing motorcycles don't have that kind of memory.

    What I failed to mention/post was...the last Navigator L I bought, cost me $76,000 over 4 years. I'm shocked that I'm paying $17,000 more than the last model.

    My brother got a fully loaded ltz for no where near that price. He picked up a left over 2018. Look online and also check outside of your area. Some states, trucks sale better then suv and vise versa. You may be able to get a smoking deal.

    That’s in New Jersey and the areas are crazy. I use to live in union city. I went to Philadelphia and Virginia to buy my last two vehicles. You will save money looking else where.

    OR, you could wait until all the rich folks move out of NJ when they get their tax bills. They'll be dumping all their toys to lighten the load and stuff should be cheap......:eek:
