Ford Says 2018 Ford Expedition Is Capable To Tow 9,300 Pounds

New Ford Expedition SUV

The Ford Expedition has constantly been a popular competitor in the full-sized SUV sector, and this year the Expedition went through an enormous redesign. The blue oval SUV will now make use of an aluminum body architecture just like the one used for America’s preferred pickup, the F-150. The Expedition will also utilize the EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 seen in the F-150 and some Explorers as its sole powertrain option, however the turbocharged engine will offer owners 375 horsepower-plenty of muscle to carry the entire family, the dog, and a yacht.

According to the automaker, the 2018 Ford Expedition has a best-in-class towing capability of 9,300 pounds, sufficient to drag around anything a regular household would be using. Towing abilities were a big issue for Ford in developing the new Expedition, since polling suggested 50 percent of Expedition owners say it is essential to them, and 15 percent of owners tow something between once in a week and when a month.

To put things into viewpoint, the Chevrolet Tahoe’s pulling capacity is 6,600 pounds, the Toyota Land Cruiser’s is 8,100 pounds and the Nissan Armada’s is 8,500 pounds.

It is necessary to be confident in exactly what you’re doing when carrying around a 9,000-pound trailer, and that’s why Ford has decided to equip the Expedition with class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist formerly observed in their F-Series trucks. The user-friendly program permits motorists to “steer” their trailer with the turn of a knob. As motorists turn the knob to maneuver the trailer into the preferred position, the Expedition turns the steering wheel and changes the throttle to match the motorist’s commands.
