2017 Ford Expedition EL in Park Rapids, MN

New 2017 Ford Expedition EL Available Now at Park Rapids Ford

The Ford Expedition EL is Ford's largest SUV, if not the largest production SUV on the market. It's an authentic body-on-frame SUV, meaning its truck-like build is exceptionally rugged. The "EL" Expeditions are 15 inches longer overall than the already sizeable regular Expedition. If having an extraordinary amount of room available for hauling passengers and cargo is what you're after, the 2017 Ford Expedition EL is the vehicle you want. There's standard seating for eight passengers, but optional second-row captain's chairs will reduce that capacity to seven. In either case, 168.3 cubic feet of passenger volume leaves plenty of room for everyone on board to spread out.

Now let's talk cargo volume. Whether talking boxes, athletic gear or furniture, the Expedition EL numbers are impressive: this SUV has 42.6 cubic feet behind the third row, 85.5 cubic feet behind the second row and a total of 130.8 cubic feet with both the second and third rows folded down (comparable numbers for a regular Expedition are 18.6, 55.0 and 108.3 cubic feet, respectively).

Power and Performance

The 2017 Ford Expedition EL is powered by the same engine as the regular Expedition: a deceivingly powerful 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6 that produces 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with rear-wheel drive. However, four-wheel drive with low-range gearing is also available - suitable if you plan to be towing a very large and heavy trailer or mobile home. In fact, maximum towing capacity, with the Expedition properly equipped, is 9,200 pounds.

Features and Options

Like its regular sibling, the Ford Expedition EL is available in four trim levels: XLT, Limited, King Ranch and Platinum.

  • Expedition EL XLT. The XLT includes 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, LED foglights, running boards, a roof rack, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, heated mirrors with puddle lamps, a six-way power driver seat with manual recline, power-adjustable pedals, a sliding and reclining 40/20/40 split second-row seat and a one-touch 60/40 fold-flat third-row seat. The XLT also features a leather-wrapped manual tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Ford's Sync voice-control system, a 4.2-inch screen, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and a six-speaker audio system that has an auxiliary jack and rear audio controls. Optional packages include the 201A and 202A. The 201A package adds a power liftgate, leather upholstery for the first- and second-row seats, a 10-way power driver seat (with power lumbar), a six-way power front passenger seat and a power-folding third-row seat. The 202A package gets those items plus a heavy-duty trailer tow package, remote ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 110-volt household-style power outlet, a 10-way power front passenger seat, heated and ventilated front seats, driver memory settings, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and the Sync 3 interface with an 8-inch touchscreen and HD/satellite radio.
  • Expedition EL Limited. The Limited trim gets all of the equipment in the XLT's 202A package, plus 20-inch wheels, front parking sensors, power-folding mirrors (with a driver-side auto-dimming mirror), automatic wipers, heated second-row seats and an upgraded 12-speaker Sony audio system. Add the 301A Package and you'll get a sunroof, retractable running boards and a voice-activated navigation system.
  • Expedition EL King Ranch. The Western-themed King Ranch edition is equipped similarly to the Limited, but has special two-tone paint, special exterior styling details, a blind-spot monitoring system, premium leather upholstery and wood grain interior trim.
  • Expedition EL Platinum. The Platinum edition is similarly equipped to the King Ranch, but without the Western theme. It also gets 22-inch wheels and a sunroof as standard.

Stand-alone options for the 2017 Expedition EL, depending on the trim level, include many of the items in the prepackaged equipment groups, plus a load-leveling rear suspension, adaptive suspension dampers, second-row captain's chairs, power retractable running boards, a dual-screen rear seat video entertainment system and a 3.73 limited-slip rear axle.
