If you’re considering a new SUV, then you’ve probably already realized the market is jam packed with choices. And choices certainly aren’t a bad thing, but narrowing them down sure can be tedious. So Team Ford is going to help with that. This post covers the 2018 Ford Explorer vs. Expedition in Edmonton, discussing the details distinguishing these models from one another.
Roomy, comfortable and safe; a ton of cargo space; and bigtime towing capabilities. This is what you’re getting from either of these models. What it means for you is virtually no restrictions when it comes to transporting the kids, their friends, and your extended family throughout Edmonton. There’s a ton of room for their sports equipment too. And beyond city limits, there are a ton of possibilities here too, as both these SUVs absolutely have the ability to tow your biggest trailers.
The 2018 Ford Explorer and Expedition are Ford’s largest, premium SUVs, meant for growing, busy families like your own. Let’s take a closer look at these two models…
