2017 Ford Expedition: Best Large SUV for the Money

If you’ve got a large family to move around or you have a hobby that takes you far outside of town with a lot of equipment, then you’re probably interested in a full-size SUV—something with all the room necessary to carry your family, your gear, and maybe tow a trailer or a boat along with you. If that’s the case, then it should please you to know that the new 2017 Ford Expedition full-size SUV has all of that and more. It’s the right vehicle for you, and it’s available at the right price at your local Indianapolis Ford Lincoln dealership.

2017 Ford Expedition

You’re probably wondering why the 2017 Ford Expedition is such a great value and why it’s the vehicle that you need. Well, if the fact that it’s made by the oldest American auto manufacturer isn’t enough for you, maybe hearing about all the details and features that went into its design will be. While the 2017 Ford Expedition isn’t a significant redesign from the previous few years’ models, the engineers at Ford were still able to make some welcome additions.

Turbocharged Power

The Ford Expedition comes standard with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine. While that may initially not seem as impressive as the huge V8 engines available on other SUVs, those twin turbochargers bring the Expedition’s horsepower up to a staggering 365. This puts it above some other V8 engines, such as the Chevy Tahoe’s 355, so you may find yourself zipping on the freeway past some competitors with larger engines.

The towing capacity for the Ford Expedition is also much higher than other vehicles in its class. How much higher? It’s over 9000 lbs.! Trailer sway control also comes as standard equipment.

If interior space is a concern of yours, then the 2017 Ford Expedition will put those concerns to bed. With three rows of seating to fit eight with ample room and nearly 110 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third rows of seats folded down, the 2017 Ford Expedition can haul just about anything you could imagine.

Unparalleled Convenience

A power liftgate and power-folding third-row seats make loading and unloading a snap. On the off chance that even that isn’t enough cargo space for you, the 2017 Ford Expedition is also available in an extended wheelbase EL model, which boosts the maximum cargo space by more than 20 cubic feet, to a maximum of almost 131.

Best Large SUV

The 2017 Ford Expedition is a great vehicle for growing families as well. There’s room for up to three child safety seats, using Ford’s LATCH system. The LATCH system is easy to use, with tethers that don’t require much force to attach and which move around easily. The LATCH system was awarded the second-highest-possible safety rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, as well.
