It’s that time of the year again for Albertans—time to take the whole family on a road trip to Banff for a weekend getaway! You’re gonna need a vehicle that can tackle everything from fitting everyone inside (including the dog), packing the skis and snowboards, and yes, blasting the stereo with your family mixtape full of 80s classics.
Luckily, we here at Team Ford Edmonton compiled a list of SUVs we recommend you taking a look at to fit all your needs. If you’d ask us which one we think is the best one out of all our choices, we’d say that’s all up to you.
2018 Ford Expedition
One of the biggest SUVs in Ford’s lineup, the all-new 2018 Expedition seats up to 8 adults, plus cargo. If that’s still not enough, it still even has a towing capacity of over 9,000lbs. Need an RV for the weekend getaway? The 2018 Expedition is more than enough—and then some! Every 2018 Expedition is equipped with a standard 3.5L EcoBoost engine that produce a horsepower of 375 and a monstrous 470 lb-ft. of torque.
With 5 different trim levels to choose from, you’re guaranteed great performance plus more great features to fit your needs like a remote start system, Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), PowerFold 3rd-row seating, and more.
2018 Ford EcoSport
The 2018 EcoSport gives you SUV performance and power, with the convenience, size and style of a sedan. The vehicle is part of Ford’s compact-crossover lineup, and is great for cruising around with everyone. It has a spacious interior that fits up to 5 passengers and the exterior is nearly 20% smaller than the Ford Explorer, while fitting the same amount of people inside.
Also featured in the 2018 EcoBoost is a 1.0L EcoBoost engine to give you more fuel efficiency for its size, along with Auto Start-Stop technology to help conserve even more fuel and an 8-inch LCD touchscreen display for added convenience.
2018 Ford Explorer
Much like the 2018 Expedition, the Explorer is capable of handling everything you need in an SUV. This three-row sized SUV has everything to conquer Alberta weather: 4WD, a Terrain Management System, plenty of towing capacity up to 5,000 lbs, and more! There are also 3 engines to choose from: the 3.5L Ti-VCT V6, 2.3L EcoBoost, and a 3.5L EcoBoost engine, each with enough horsepower to handle the largest of cargos.
2018 Ford Edge
Another great Ford crossover vehicle! The 2018 Edge is just as customizable as the rest of our SUV line up with four different trims to choose from: the SE, SEL, Titanium, and the Sport. Still not enough? The same engine options available for the 2018 Explorer is also available for the 2018 Edge as well!
The Edge is also packed with a bunch of available features to add onto your vehicle such as Adaptive Steering, BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert, a Lane Keeping System, and a 180-degree front camera for extra safety and vigilance.
