It’s no secret that the market for midsize SUVs is thriving. People are looking for vehicles that can tow a small boat or pull a trailer while also carrying the family around town. The BMW X4 and Ford Expedition are two of the highest-rated midsize SUVs on the market, so let’s take a look at how they compare:
Design & Style
The 2022 BMW X4 is a midsize SUV with smooth lines and a sporty appearance. It’s available in three trim levels: the base, xLine, and M Sport versions. The exterior design features a large front grille with vertical slats and chrome accents on the bumpers and door handles. The headlamps are also accentuated by LEDs that shine brightly at night. The overall look is both stylish and functional; it’s spacious enough to fit your family but has enough power to get you where you need to go comfortably!
The 2022 Ford Expedition is practically a giant compared to other SUVs in its price range! This full-size SUV offers seating for up seven passengers (eight if you opt for rear captain chairs). It also has plenty of cargo space—with up to 123 cubic feet available when all five seats are occupied! Plus, there’s even more room under its hood, thanks to its diesel engine option, which can provide up to 20 miles per gallon when paired w/Xplorer package option.
The 2022 BMW X4 has a premium look and feel. It has a sleek design, with an elegant dashboard and center console, which makes it easy to use. The sedan is spacious, with enough room for five passengers. It can also fit tall people well. The car comes with two trunks for storing luggage and other items. Additionally, the seats are electrically adjustable, so you can change their position easily when necessary (e.g., when you want to stretch out after driving).
The 2022 Ford Expedition offers plenty of space inside, and there’s even more room if you opt for one of its extended cab options (which will allow up to eight passengers). Although it doesn’t have as much storage space as some other SUVs or crossovers on the market today, such as those offered by Toyota-you’ll find ample room under the floorboards (in addition to in backseats) that make carrying large items easier than ever before!
Technology & Safety
The 2022 BMW X4 comes with an 8-inch touchscreen that you can use to control your car’s audio system, adjust climate and other settings, lock or unlock doors and even view the status of some key vehicle systems. The 2022 Ford Expedition has a similar system with an 8-inch screen. It also features Apple CarPlay/Android Auto capability so you can stay connected while on the road, as well as Siri Eyes Free technology that allows you to access voice commands through your smartphone instead of using the buttons in front of you.
The 2022 BMW X4 has a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This engine produces 240 horsepower and 258 foot-pounds of torque, which is more than enough power to get you up to speed and on your way in no time at all. In comparison, the 2022 Ford Expedition has a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 335 horsepower and 380 foot-pounds of torque—and that’s for just one of its three engines! The other two are even more powerful, delivering 420 and 500 horsepower, respectively.
That being said, the 2022 BMW X4 can achieve 29 mpg in combined driving conditions when driven at 65 mph or less (the law requires that vehicles be tested at this speed), whereas the 2022 Ford Expedition gets 20 mpg in combined driving conditions when driven at 60 mph or less (the law requires that vehicles be tested at this speed).
The Bottom Line
While the 2022 Ford Expedition is a solid SUV, the 2022 BMW X4 is more refined and better overall. The X4 has an impressive powertrain, an upscale interior, and high-quality materials that make it feel like a luxury vehicle. Overall, we think the 2022 BMW X4 comes out on top in this comparison.
