There is no SUV quite like the 2017 Ford Expedition. The Expedition is larger than its other Ford SUV counterparts, offering more room for passengers and a higher capacity for towing. Don’t be fulled by its tough exterior and work numbers, through, the 2017 Ford Expedition is one of the most comfortable rides you can experience on the road. Visit us at Sanders Ford for an in-person look at the 2017 Ford Expedition in Jacksonville NC.
The 2017 Expedition has only one available engine, but we can’t imagine ever wanting something other than the standard 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that’s under the hood. You get real truck power from this V6 EcoBoost with a 365 horsepower rating and 420 lb-ft of torque. This also allows the 2017 Expedition to be able to tow up to 9,200 pounds with the optional heavy-duty trailer towing package.
Part of the appeal of the 2017 Ford Expedition is its vast array of features. You can equip the 2017 Expedition with a 390-watt, 12-speaker Sony audio system for a true surround-sound experience, which pairs well with the SYNC 3 system available for the Expedition. You can even make use of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility for additional options. Worried about the kids getting bored on a family road trip? Don’t worry, because you can equip the Expedition with a dual set of 7-inch screens and DVD players -- so you can have two movies going at once!
But what is the point of all these fun tech features if the drive itself isn’t comfortable? Thankfully, the Expedition offers exceptional comfort for all eight of its passengers. There are numerous options available for interior seat configurations that go beyond just choosing between cloth and leather. Heating and cooling seats are also available, though what really impresses us is the 40/20/40 second row bench seat with CenterSlide option. This lets the center seat move forward about 11 inches, giving the first row easy access to it -- which is perfect for a child-safety seat. This feature also comes with the ability for this seat to recline for extra comfort.
