Review Summary of the 2017 Ford Expedition

2017 Ford Expedition

In the market for a car-based crossover with enough massive power to take on any challenge thrown at it? Look no further than the 2017 Ford Expedition. As the experts at the Car Connection point out “the 2017 Ford Expedition teaches a few lessons to today's crossover SUVs.”

Powered by a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, which offers 365 HP and 420 lb-ft of torque, and offering class-leading towing capacity this beastly vehicle is one of the biggest and most capable vehicles on the market. Don’t just take our word for it though, let others tell you why driving this SUV will blow the lid off of all of those predispositions that you may have about Ford’s SUV game.

As Car Connection Editorial Director Marty Padgett also points out “the Expedition isn't just surviving, it's thriving. It’s impressive twin-turbo V-6 will make you forget the charms of the old naturally aspirated V-8. The 3.5L twin-turbocharged V-6 is on loan from the F-150 lineup (and from Ford's crossovers and sedans, too). The 365 HP turbo V-6 even growls while maintaining the SUV's strong 9,200-pound tow rating. The power's not explosive, but the Expedition is now a truly quick vehicle, despite its mass and height.”

The experts at Edmunds, who say that the 2017 Ford Expedition is one of their top recommendations in the SUV segment, say that they are both impressed with the massive power given by Ford’s truck-based SUV as well as its cargo room and towing capabilities. “You can fit several suitcases in the back while leaving plenty of room for passengers in the cabin. What's more, it goes down the highway with a surprising amount of comfort and stability, particularly if it's fitted with the optional adaptive suspension. So, go ahead and settle down for that long family road trip -- this Ford is ready. If you need lots of towing capacity the 2017 Ford Expedition is hard to beat.”

Even reviewers from the U.S. News & World Report agree that the all-new Expedition “is the 2017 Best Large SUV for the Money because it has the best combination of quality and value in the class.”

Even experts at Kelly Blue Book say that the Expedition “bests its main rival the Chevrolet Tahoe not to mention other full-size SUVs like the Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada. The Expedition's capability is granted thanks to a sturdy, body-on-frame chassis.”
