Is the 2018 Ford Expedition Good for Towing?

The new in 2018 Ford Expedition passes with flying colors when it comes to the large SUV skillset. Its cavernous interior allows for up to 8 passengers and can be reconfigured for bulky cargo. Four-wheel drive means off-road driving is a breeze. But many shoppers may be asking a crucial question: how does it handling towing?

We're happy to report that the 2018 Expedition offers robust towing capability. A powerful engine, adept transmission, and helpful technology mean you'll be able to bring along your trailer, boat, or camper with ease.

The keystone of the Expedition's towing capability lies in its power plant. Rather than the typical V8 choice, Ford offers every Expedition with the advantage of turbocharging in the standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. The engine offers plenty of power to work with, producing 375 horsepower and a mighty 470 pound-feet of torque. A ten-speed automatic transmission offers the versatility and precise control needed for heavy towing. Pick your Expedition with the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow package, and you'll be ready to tow up to 9,300 pounds.

It's not just power that makes the Expedition great for towing -- it's loaded with available technology to assist in the task as well. AdvanceTrac with RSC helps maintain stability out back, and Blind Spot Information System makes it easier to keep an eye on surroundings.

Alongside towing capability, the 2018 Expedition has a lot to offer for drivers needing a great full-size SUV. Stop by Suburban Ford of Waterford to take one for a test drive.
