As a full-size SUV with three rows of seats, the 2017 Ford Expedition is designed to accommodate large families. The 2017 Ford Explorer is a crossover SUV that also comes with three rows.

Featuring twin turbochargers, the Ford Expedition's 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 engine whips out a maximum of 365 horsepower. When the tachometer hits only 2,250 RPM, this six-cylinder engine cranks out 420 pound-feet of peak torque. This Ford SUV rolls on the Control Trac 4WD system that maximizes traction on smooth surfaces and rough terrains. Capable of monitoring dozens of mechanical parameters in real time, the Continuously Controlled Damping significantly enhances off-road drives. The Rear Mechanical Load-Leveling Suspension provides additional stability on uneven roads and trails. Rated at 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, the 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 engine is the most capable powertrain in the Ford Explorer. Having a single turbocharger, the 2.3 L EcoBoost engine yields 280 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The naturally aspirated 3.5 L Ti-VCT V6 engine produces 290 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with the Intelligent 4WD and Terrain Management System, the Explorer is ready to tackle numerous landscapes. Both Ford models are equipped with the six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, which includes the Tow/Haul Mode. The Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control are also installed in the Expedition and Explorer.


Having a touch-screen interface that's inspired by smartphones, the SYNC 3 infotainment system is available in the Ford Expedition and Explorer. GPS navigation with 3-D maps and voice recognition is included in this signature multimedia platform. SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link services are installed in the navigation software.

This luxurious SUV offers additional entertainment in the INVISION DVD system that's connected to dual headrest monitors.

The Blind Spot Information System is available in the Ford Expedition and Explorer.

Having an effective range of 45 feet, the Cross-Traffic Alert helps you avoid an accident while backing up. Powered by ultrasonic technology, the Expedition's Forward and Reverse Sensing System provides additional guidance for parking. Installed in the Explorer front bumper, a forward-facing camera lens with a washer captures a 180-degree perspective of the road.
