The new Ford Expedition is nothing short of the ultimate in sport utility vehicles (SUV). This car has power, an imposing presence, and plenty of room for a large family.
In addition, this vehicle can tow a staggering 9,300 pounds when equipped with the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package.
Comfort and Roominess
The interior of the Expedition can easily fit a family of 7 with plenty of legroom. I especially like the first 2 rows of seats are captain’s chair style with full armrests. This is a nice treat for older teenagers. The third row is perfect for 3 additional people or 2 and a child’s safety or booster seat.
The rear cargo area has adequate space for luggage, gear, sports equipment, or the family pet. It is easily accessed from the rear bumper using your foot when your hands are full.
