Ford is tallying up their annual numbers, and it’s clear to see that the company is the number one choice for SUVs with a total of almost 800,000 being sold this year - a record figure! It's believed that this is partly due to the popularity of the new EcoSport and Expedition. Let’s take a look at why the latter has had so much success since its introduction.
The fully-loaded 2019 Ford Expedition Max Platinum comes equipped with an EcoBoost V6 which is anything but humble. The 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged motor cranks out a hearty 400 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque - that kind of ferocity teamed with a 10-speed transmission makes an unbeatable combo.
This supersized vehicle earns its “max” prefix. It’s a monster with an exterior length of 221.9 inches and a height of 76.4 inches. What’s more, you’ll have all the space you want for luggage or groceries because it has an enormous cargo area of 34.3 cubic feet, and you can tumble-down the last row to increase storage capacity to 73.3 cubic feet. Despite its size, you still get an impressive fuel economy of 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway (18 combined).
