Popularity is fickle in the automotive world. Each day sees the rise - and fall - of cars, with consumer interest proving impossible to predict. Preferences changes; trends shift; and sustainability is forgotten…. almost.
Ford has managed to defy this fair-weather pattern - with its Expedition earning long-term loyalty from Washington.
According to The Car Connection, the Expedition ranks among the most popular cars in North America - with drivers keeping it for an average of nine years. Why is this number so impressive? Critics note that most vehicles boast a life-span of only seven years. This delivers a staggering 21% difference and it showcases the reputation that Ford has crafted, with its SUV revving past the competition (including the Toyota 4Runner, the Honda Odyssey, and Chevrolet Suburban).
We’re not surprised. The Expedition has always proven a top-seller on our lot - and the 2018 version is no exception. Boasting an eight-passenger frame, this SUV effortlessly accommodates families and adventurers alike. Its cavernous cabin hosts 104.6 cu.-ft of cargo space, allowing it to adapt to every need; while flat-folding seating yields custom configurations. A series of overhead and under-mounted consoles pair with cushion-back pockets to provide ample support; and roof-rack rails assure easy hauling, delivering more than 1,700 payload pounds. The entire platform is tailored for day-to-day storage… and that makes it a worthy addition to any mile.
