2017 Ford Expedition EL Atlanta GA
There are very few jobs the new Expedition will not be able to handle. But there are still car shoppers out there who demand the absolute best in storage space. This is where the 2017 Ford Expedition EL near Atlanta GA enters to take up the slack. With its longer body style, the Expedition EL adds to the already impressive cargo capacities offered by the standard version of the SUV. If it can’t fit in the Expedition EL, you’ll most likely need a trailer, which the Expedition EL can then tow for you.
Don’t let the this SUV’s longer size scare you away. The 2017 Expedition EL does not handle like a ship. Ford equips the Expedition with a turbocharged V6 engine that will make you forget you are driving a large SUV. Acceleration is quick and steering and handling is responsive. The Expedition’s four-wheel independent suspension give it a smooth ride that competing full-size SUVs cannot match. Choosing the optional three-way active dampers smooth out the ride even more.
Under the hood, the Expedition EL is powered by a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine. This engine offers 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. These power numbers lead to a maximum towing capacity of 9,200 pounds. The turbocharged engine gives the Expedition EL nimble acceleration for such a large vehicle.
Choosing the EL body style adds a significant amount of storage space to the Expedition. Behind the third row of seats, the SUV offers 42.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity. Folding down both back rows increases this number to 130.8 cubic feet. With all of the seats back up, the SUV can seat up to eight people.
After government safety testing, the Expedition came away with the highest possible score of five stars. Every model comes equipped with a standard rearview camera, rear parking sensors and the Ford MyKey system. Higher trim levels offer front parking sensors along with a blind-spot monitoring system as available equipment.
