When it comes to more rugged, off-roading SUVs, there isn’t another option that can beat out the 2017 Ford Expedition EL XLT. With an extended-length body style that adds 15-inches, this family-friendly vehicle is great for daily driving and camping trips. You can drop the kids off at school during the week and head to the lake on the weekend.
Powered by a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Expedition produces 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and 4WD, it gets 17 mpg combined (15 city/20 highway). With the proper towing package, this beast can pull up to 9,200 lbs.
The XLT trim level adds 18-in alloy wheels and roof rails for more storage. The cabin features a leather-wrapped manual tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel that can be adjusted to suit your height. According to Edmunds, the voice-activated Sync infotainment system operates on a 4.2-inch touchscreen. Bluetooth connectivity enables hands-free calling, and you may charge your mobile device using the USB port provided.
