After a revamp last year that gave the Expedition a modern twin-turbocharged V6 engine and interior/exterior freshening, the most notable change for the 2016 model is the addition of SYNC 3. This latest edition of Ford's touch-screen infotainment system is easier to see and use.
The 2015 Ford Expedition's interior now includes MyFord Touch, the exterior is refreshed front and rear, and the V8 from previous years is gone, replaced Ford's excellent EcoBoost 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6. The Expedition also gets selectable drive modes – Comfort, Normal and Sport – thanks to a new suspension.
About Ford Expedition EL
Ford's biggest SUV, the 2016 Expedition, is a rugged 3-row utility vehicle that seats up to eight and can tow up to 9,200 pounds. Those stats and its truck-like body-on-frame design set it apart from crossover SUVs such as the Toyota Highlander and the Expedition's own little brother, the Ford Explorer. For families needing even more room, the Expedition EL offers it with extended length. Like its main rivals the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, the Expedition excels at hauling families and towing heavy loads but compromises overall driving manners for those capabilities. The Expedition's sheer size also makes it cumbersome in confined places. But with more traditional SUVs going soft, the Expedition is steadfast in its mission to provide grunt in a contemporary package.
