2017 Anthem vs. Aspire

Could one of you Entegra experts please help ? What are the key differences between the Anthem and Aspire? By looking at the spec sheets they seem to have the same chassis,engine,floor heat, tow capacity etc.

For the 2017 models, the chassis is basically the same. Both have IFS. (Not true of Aspire model years prior to 2017.) Anthem fuel tank is 150 gallons, Aspire 100 gallons. (2018 Aspire has 150 gallons) Anthem has power window shades, Aspire's are manual. Light switches, heating, blinds are integrated into the Vega-Touch on the Anthem, no VT on the Aspire. Paint on sides of slideouts on Anthem continues coach's color scheme; Aspire's are painted black. Electric door locks on bay doors on Anthem, Aspire's are manual. As mentioned before, 2017 Aspire has 315 Goodyear tires on front.

If you compare the 2018 models, the Anthem has Hadley air suspension, the Aspire does not.

Ron, our Aspire slide box ends are painted the majority color of our paint scheme.

In 2017, I feel the gap between the Aspire and Anthem narrowed considerably, with the introduction of IFS and the diesel Aquahot as two examples.

In 2018, the Aspire continued to step up the game with 150G of fuel, Michelin tires, and other changes. Fortunately the Anthem has continued to make significant improvements, among which are Hadley Air.

Best Regards,

Aspire has 10kW generator, Anthem has a 12.5kW generator. Anthem has larger front shocks (60mm vs 46mm). Aspire 1 3000 watt inverter, Anthem has 2. Anthem has 4 batteries, Aspire has 2 (but you can buy 2 more as an option).

The title of your post initiating this thread indicates you’re interested in comparing 2017 Anthems to 2017 Aspires. I can’t help you much with that, but for anyone interested in a detailed comparison of the 2018 Anthem and 2018 Aspire, proceed as follows:

Go to

Point your cursor to MODELS

Click on 2018 ASPIRE

On the page that comes up, click on STANDARDS & OPTIONS. That will jump you down to info on CHASSIS. Absorb that info, after which you can click on any of the following to see more info on these particular subjects:


Once you know everything there is to know about the Aspire, scroll back up, point your cursor to MODELS, click on ANTHEM and proceed as outlined above.

Same routine for any other model in which you may be interested.
