I'm Large SUV shopping myself right now, and I have driven both the Expy and the Tahoe, and frankly, in my mind (and that of my wife) there is no comparison whatsoever. In particular, I found the Expy interior to be cheap and plasticky-looking, which is troublesome on a $40K vehicle. You can tell it hasn't been updated in several years. Chevy definitely got it right with the 07s. Minus the no-fold-flat 3rd row seat, of course. But that's *all* that the Expy has on the Tahoe.

Tumble the 3rd Row forward in the Tahoe so that the seats are against the 2nd row. Then go look at how much space there is in the Ford Explorer when the 3rd row is folded flat.
If you really need a truck this big, then you are buying for the cargo space. Hence, unless you are going to haul those 90lb each third row seats in and out of the truck on a regular basis, why would you buy a big truck with as much space as the smaller Ford Explorer?
The Expedition interior was all new for 2007 and unless you were looking at an XLT or a preowned, I'm not sure where you saw an inordinate amount of hard plastic. Eddie Bauers and Limiteds have lots of wood.
