This video is highly biased toward the Explorer. All the reviews in the car magazines favor the Telluride and pan the Explorer, especially in regard to the interior quality, fit and finish as well as comfort and driving dynamics. My Telluride SX AWD easily gets 26-27 mpg on the highway and driving range is consistently over 400 miles. It also tows my 5000 lb boat trailer without strain. This gentleman obviously received a fat bonus payment from Ford!

So if the review doesn't agree with you you call it biased? That makes you biased because you own one. I believe he did mention the fact that the Telluride has better interior. The only reason he picked the Ford Explorer ST because of the sporty drive. Let's be honest, the Telluride is a great SUV, but definitely doesn't drive the same as the ST. He has reviewed the Telluride so many times and has priased over other SUVs. Also, youtubers don't get paid by manufacturers, they only get free car for review.

The review is horrible because a lot of things he says is not factual at all. He said the Ford has heated 2nd row seats but the they are not available on the Telluride SX. He says 300 pound difference is not much, but even with a 4000 pound vehicle, its about 7% of the mass . He says the ford has a bigger gas tank so can go further on a tank of gas..this guy is an idiot. Half the video was him flooring a 400HP SUV saying it's so fast. It is for a 3 row SUV, but it's really not fast. And the other half is his wife driving the telluride. It makes you wonder if he even drove it. The Ford's interior is better because his wife likes the arm rest better...lol There are a lot better reviews out there of people who actually know about the vehicles they are comparing.

The SX in Canada doesn't have heated seats, for the wheelbase of that Ford, 300 lbs isn't a lot. Fuel economy for both vehicles is very much the same. He has reviewed the Telluride like 12 times, all the models, I follow him all the time. He is probably the only youtuber who actually reviewed the Telluride vs Toyota Highlander 2020. I think you just don't agree with his review because he is right, but he doesn't know anything is very misleading. He pointed out many good things about the Telluride, of course you watched only the Ford part. Be more open minded to criticism. Cheers

No, I watched the whole thing and listened to his dribble..7% mass is a lot no matter the wheel base. 5 MPG is a big difference in gas mileage..it isn't "close"..so the SX in Canada is a lesser model? So he's comparing a top of the line Ford vs. a lower model Kia..that makes this review even more laughable. He also didn't mention the ST only has seating for 6 nor did he mention that for rear heated seats, you can get them if you go up a model...like I said..there are better comparisons out there. I am a Ford guy also and the ST is nice, but for a family hauler which is what a 3 row SUV is made for, it doesn't compare to the Telluride, Atlas, or even the Ascent in any way...what do you need 400hp in a 3 row for?..even he says you don't use all of it..lol....he wanted it to be better because he liked the power..I doubt he's ever been in a fast car if he thinks that is fast. Now compare the price and it even makes the difference bigger. It was just so biased and he didn't hide it..he was as giddy as a high school girl on prom night.

I guess we'll have to agree to diagree, but I really hope no one uses this guy for info on buying a vehicle, they will end up being very disappointed in the long run.

So he's comparing a top of the line Ford vs. a lower model Kia..that makes this review even more laughable (ST isn't the top trim, Platinum is)He also didn't mention the ST only has seating for 6 ( when he sat inside the Kia he said it offers 6 seats only) nor did he mention that for rear heated seats, you can get them if you go up a model...like I said.(he said that too with a different trim) .there are better comparisons out there. I am a Ford ( you are definitely not a ford guy) guy also and the ST is nice, but for a family hauler which is what a 3 row SUV is made for, it doesn't compare to the Telluride, Atlas, or even the Ascent in any way...what do you need 400hp in a 3 row for?..even he says you don't use all of it ( you don't just put it in confort mode) ..lol....he wanted it to be better because he liked the power..I doubt he's ever been in a fast car if he thinks that is fast. (You are clearly speaking out of your behind, he has driven cars you can't dream of) compare the price and it even makes the difference bigger. It was just so biased and he didn't hide it..he was as giddy as a high school girl on prom night. ( from all your comments, you either another youtuber, or you are just jealous of him)

From your comment i can see you just hate him for no reason, and I understand sometimes you just don't like the guy, I am like that with some youtubers I just don't like them, nothing wrong :)

LOL..nowhere did it say 5..he said it was close..5mpg is what it is..that's not close!!!..at leasy you gave up on the weight issue and now you see the MPG's aren't "close"..so there are the first two things I mentioned which was BS and the most glaring misinformations.

You do not know me obviously..I own a Mustang convertible which is my garage queen. I'm the vice president of the 513 mustang syndicate.. I have owned more fords than any other vehicle make in my life. Don't speak of people that you know nothing about.I'm probably one of the biggest ford fans around. We are also sponsored by Lebanon Performance Ford.

I'm not a youtuber and he's not the only youtuber that does video comparisons..are you for real? Use google here and there and maybe you might learn something and see how real people do comparisons

I don't like him, because he's definitely not impartial and he doesn't even try to hide it. These are supposed to be informative to potential buyers, not biased sales ads. He's supposed to point out the differences and have actual facts, not (the gas mileage is close), (They weigh nearly the same)..which are lies. I'm just saying there are much better reviewers out there.

I doubt he has driven cars "I can only dream about" especially if he thinks a vehicle doing 0-60 in the mid 5's is fast.

You haven't taken the chance to check out his channel, that's your problem. He showed the ratings for fuel, not 5 mpg. I checked online, he's correct. It's ok bud, you just don't like him. All good :)

No, the only videos of his I have seen are the ones you posted here. I looked up the MPG ratings for both (using google, try it) and saw they were 5MPG's different, so that's why I know he's lying when he says the gas mileage is "close"

I bet you are a "top fan" of his though, do you have the badge on your profile when you post on his youtube videos?, but it's "all good"

I checked and it matches his. I won't post stupid videos, I have seen his other work. The only one that keeps comparing cars head to head.

I am actually a fan, I watch his videos, and sometimes redline reviews too. I find them professionally done. You probably wear a shirt with his face " i hate this guy".

I did watch the video, and also felt it was biased for the first 5 minutes or so. It got better as it went on, but I stopped watching it because I felt the presenter just was not very good, which might be why he comes off biased.
