With room for eight adults and even more space available for cargo, the 2017 Ford Expedition makes the most of its large presence on the road. Although it's classified as a crossover vehicle, the Expedition skews towards the end of the spectrum closer to that of a traditional sports utility vehicle; consequently, drivers will enjoy its sheer power, which translates to its towing capabilities as well. Check out the Expedition in the video below:
The 2017 Expedition generates its muscle from a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that provides 365 hp. Adding to its dominating design is a six-speed automatic with rear-wheel drive, which comes standard (four-wheel drive is also available for those looking to upgrade to that option).
Although some driving enthusiasts may doubt the capability of the V-6 engine to propel that much heft, any hesitations are in vain. When properly equipped, the Expedition can tow up to 9,200 pounds; independent rear suspension also better absorbs shock from bumps, compared to other full-size SUVs that it's often viewed against - i.e. the Chevrolet Suburban, which has a similar body-on-frame, but also has a lower towing capacity and more limited cargo space. The Expedition shines in this area, as the three-row vehicle is aptly designed to handle rugged roads and larger towing loads.
Adding to the Expedition's perks are the variety of trim levels and options packages. The modern elements, such as the Blue Oval's infotainment interface (Sync 3) help ensure that the Expedition stays up-to-date with what's trending and innovative, while maintaining the fundamental features that make it a standout crossover. The combination of brute strength, spacious interior and upgraded technology makes the Expedition perfect for trips of any length.
