The horsepower is a feature that most of car fans take into consideration at first when buying a car. In this comparison it is the Ford Expedition I 4.6 i V8 16V XLT 218HP automatic which has by 48 more horsepower in comparison to the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4. As a result the Ford Expedition I can reach higher top speed. Having more horsepower the Ford Expedition I should also give noticeably more flexiblility in specific gears.
Thanks to 55 % higher torque, the engine of the Ford Expedition I 4.6 i V8 16V XLT 218HP automatic distinctly better transmits power to the wheels than the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4. This, in turn, have positive implications for acceleration.
Acceleration 0-100 km/h

In the „full-size SUV class, being represented by the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I, the medium acceleration to 100km/h amounts to 10.5 s and is by 2.3 s higher than this of Mitsubishi car.
Maximal torque RPM
The RMP at which the highest torque is reached tells us how fast an engine achieves its best output with growth in rotational speed. The lower rmp or the longer range in which the torque is the highest, the more the engine is flexible and the kick of acceleration is felt earlier.
The maximum speed possible to be reached by the Ford Expedition I is greater in comparison to this of the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4 which allows to drive the same distance on the highway faster. The difference at the level of 4 kilometers per hour is not big and is imperceptible in daily use.
The width of the vehicle influences directly on passanger's inner room as well as stability of driving. The Ford Expedition I 4.6 i V8 16V XLT 218HP automatic is 18 percent wider than the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I 3.0 V6 170HP automatic 4x4. It is clearly perceptible by driver and passenger in front, who have more space for their elbows.
The Ford Expedition I has 11 percent longer wheelbase in relation to Mitsubishi Pajero Sport I. Thanks to this the Ford is safer and has a better stability. Besides, longer wheelbase has impact on convenient and more comfortable traveling.

Although the Ford Expedition I 4.6 i V8 16V XLT 218HP automatic occurs to be better pick for families or drivers who appreciate convenient rides, the Mitsubishi may be more appropriate to women as it will not make troubles with parking and will have smaller turning radius.
The Ford Expedition I has 55 % larger cubic capacity in comparison to the Mitsubishi. The difference is relatively large. As a result the Ford Expedition I should accelerate faster and be able to achieve higher top speed. On the other hand larger engine displacement usually equals worst fuel economy.
The higher a vehicle is, the better is the comfort of boarding it and greater possibility of putting massive amount of luggage to it. The difference between these two cars of 167 mm in favor of the Ford is insignificant and should not be really noticeable.
