Growing families need a vehicle that can grow with them. That’s why so many gravitate towards a full-size SUV. These people-haulers offer plenty of room for people and their things, making them an ideal choice for the family on the go.

Whether you’re dropping the kids off in the carpool lane or hauling materials for your latest home improvement project, the new 2022 Ford Expedition MAX and 2022 Chevrolet Suburban leave a lasting impression. These full-size SUVs turn heads with their chiseled lines, wide stances, and aggressive side profiles.

Both the new 2022 Ford Expedition MAX and 2022 Chevy Suburban feature a hands-free gesture liftgate that opens when you kick your foot below the rear bumper. They also offer power-retractable assist steps, LED headlights, and heated side-view mirrors. These full-size SUVs can also be paired with roof-rack cross rails that make it easy to bring awkward shaped cargo along for the ride. 

The new 2022 Ford Expedition MAX is offered in seven contemporary colors and nine head-turning wheel styles. By contrast, the new 2022 Chevrolet SUburban is offered in 10 simple colors and 15 wheel styles to choose from.
