2017 Ford Expedition EL

Whether on the town for a night or at the cottage for a week, we’re all teammates. Connecting with each other – and our environment. 
Striving for the truly extraordinary. The destinations continually change. What really matters is the confidence to go. As well as the memory-making
experiences shared along the way. Life is a Sport. We are the Utility. Be Unstoppable. The 2017 Ford Expedition
In Expedition, one of the best parts of any trip is the drive. So the fun starts as soon as you leave the driveway. Up front, the large center console features spacious
storage room and includes 2 smart-charging USB ports2 to keep your mobile phones charged. Power adjustable brake and accelerator pedals feature memory settings2 for 2 different drivers, as do the
10-way power, heated and cooled front bucket seats.2 And since you’re traveling with roomy seating for up to 8, friends can enjoy heated 2nd-row outboard seats2 and best-in-class 3rd-row leg room.
To quickly switch from carrying people to transporting cargo and back again, the PowerFold® 3rd-row seat operates with one-touch push-button ease.
You’ve got the power and space you want. Now get the ride feel that suits you by setting the continuously controlled damping (CCD) suspension to any of 3 drive modes. Select Normal for everyday driving, or Comfort for a softer ride on a
mellow Sunday cruise. Expedition really shows off its great handling when you switch to Sport mode. CCD is paired with 22" polished aluminum wheels  on Limited, King Ranch® and Platinum.
Add to your peace of mind with the knowledge that AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) is standard on every Expedition. Providing enhanced
vehicle stability in a wide range of conditions, the system selectively applies individual brakes and modifies engine power to help keep all 4 wheels firmly planted.
BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) alerts you with a light in either sideview mirror if its radar sensors detect a vehicle in the corresponding blind spot. Crosstraffic
alert, part of the system, notifies you with a beep and a warning light in your sideview mirror if it detects a vehicle approaching either side as you slowly back
Expedition out of a parking space. Either way, BLIS® with cross-traffic alert, helps keep you aware of things that may be just out of your line of view.
Fine appointments. Built-in capability. The 2017 Expedition Platinum can take you from a night on the town to a cabin in the woods. With utmost ease and complete confidence. Your calling card for luxurious adventure, its polished stainless, powerdeployable
running boards, 22" polished aluminum wheels and unique accents on its grille and liftgate appliqué offer a preview of the elegance that awaits inside. A voice-activated Navigation System puts you in command of your surroundings
in this luxurious cockpit. Soft ambient lighting, a power moonroof and luxury leather-trimmed seats in Brunello or Ebony with stitched PLATINUM lettering bring richness to this spacious interior. As does the leather-wrapped steering wheel and center console armrest with Agate stitching. Whatever the conditions outside, Platinum helps ensure you’ll be comfortable inside.
When people say they love their vehicle, it’s often the unexpected features that steal their heart. In Expedition, it’s easy to get attached to stargazing out of its power moonroof or recharging your portable devices with its 110-volt/150-watt capacity AC power outlet. And not only does the standard 2nd-row 40/20/40 split-fold seat fold completely flat, its CenterSlide® functionality can move the middle section forward almost 11," giving you easy access to a child seat. And of course, there is the space. With best-in-class max. cargo space of 130.8 cu. ft. on Expedition EL,2 don’t spend time worrying about what you have to leave behind. There are plenty of ways to creatively stow all your stuff, including a Cargo Management System  behind the rear seat that can be positioned as either a cargo shelf or a divider. 
The advanced technology engineered into Ford Expedition helps you share the best of life with family and friends. And do it all with confidence, as the 2016 Expedition
received the government’s highest safety rating: a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score. AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™)2 is working hard while you trek out
to your favorite getaway, detecting and correcting skidding or fishtailing – even on tricky road surfaces. And the patented Safety Canopy® System has rollover sensing
and can deploy the side-curtain airbags when needed. Since the driver has the most important job, helpful MyKey® technology allows you to program ignition keys with reminders to drive at appropriate speeds, keep the audio
volume low and much more. A full-color rear view camera keeps you in touch with activity behind you when you’re in Reverse.
Aside from a few premium option packages, the biggest reason to consider the EL is the increased amount of cargo space behind the third-row seat-more than twice the cargo space of the standard Expedition. The EL also has a longer wheelbase and nearly 15 additional inches of overall length, with slightly longer rear doors and easier entry into the third row seating.
