2019 BMW X4 vs. 2019 Ford Expedition


The 2019 Ford Expedition is arguably one of the America’s most popular SUVs. Its roomy cabin, superb acceleration and Platinum trim make it a force that is almost irresistible. But what happens when it goes up against the 2019 BMW X4, with its large touchscreens, flawless eight speed automatic and spectacular performance?

Design & Style

Visually, the BMW X4 is brash and confident, with a sloping roof that is similar to coupes. It has nineteen inch wheels, and inside the cabin is relaxing with slim vents and a low dash where the buttons are organized and easy to use. The surfaces are covered by premium materials such as authentic wood and aluminum, which give it an upscale ambience. The Ford Expedition is a large SUV with external lines that are crisp and pleasing to the eyes. The headlights are C shaped, and the exterior borrows certain design cues from the F-150, especially the front which is chiseled like stone. Inside, the cabin is composed, with leather that is stitched.

Technology & Safety

The Expedition has received a 5 star rating from the NHTSA, and is equipped with many safety countermeasures, although they tend to be on the pricey side. It has frontal impact warnings, emergency automatic brakes, blind area monitoring, and lane and cruise control. Inside, it seats seven passengers who will be treated to lots of amenities, such as cooled/heated seats, ignition that is keyless, Android Auto, touchscreens which are eight inches in size, and a power tailgate. Unlike the Ford, many of the BMW X4’s most critical safety features come standard, and do not require extra cost to install. Some of these include emergency automatic brakes, pedestrian detection, and a collision detection system that automatically tightens seat belts and prepares passengers in the event an impact is unavoidable. This combined with its surround view, lane control and heads up display are impressive. Additional perks include touchscreens which are 10.3 inches, wireless connectivity and Apple CarPlay.


The BMW comes with a turbo 6, 3 liter engine that can produce 355 horsepower with 365 pound of torque. The Ford Expedition is equipped with a V6, twin turbo engine that is 3.5 liter and capable of generating 375 horsepower with 470 pound of torque.

The Bottom Line

Both of these SUVs are impressive, but only one can be king of the hill. Aside from the fact that many of the Expedition’s safety features require buyers to pay extra, its size can actually become a liability when trying to find a parking lot, so the BMW X4 wins.
