SUVs are one of the hardest vehicles to get right, which makes the 2015 Ford Expedition all them ore impressive. They need to be capable of hauling heavy loads without sacrificing fuel economy, and they should provide with plenty of interior features without affecting performance. Essentially, an SUV needs it all. With a 2015 Expedition, drivers from Peotone and Bradley will indeed get it all.
We’ve decided to compare the new Expedition to one of the only other SUVs that comes close — the 2015 Toyota Sequoia — to show you just how capable this Ford powerhouse can be.
The 2015 Ford Expedition and 2015 Toyota Sequoia have been provided with one engine each, prioritizing a single high-performance powerhouse so Bradley drivers don’t need to compromise on anything:
The Expedition’s EcoBoost outmatches the Seqouia in terms of power, but is narrowly beaten in terms of torque. However, while horsepower is great for a sports car, an SUV should really focus on pulling power. The EcoBoost’s extra torque makes it shine, with a maximum towing capacity of 9,200 pounds — almost 200 pounds more than the Sequoia.
That power doesn’t come at the price of efficiency though. The base model of the Expedition offers 18 mpg combined, while the best offered from the Sequoia is 15 mpg combined.
Both the Expedition and Sequoia boast extremely spacious cabins, though the latter has slightly more storage space. However, the Sequoia’s additional cargo capacity becomes less of an issue when all seats are folded down.
It’s also worth noting that this advantage is somewhat nullified by the Sequoia’s much lower towing capacity. Additional items can always be stowed in a trailer, with no need to worry about going over your limit, even when towing larger items.
The two vehicles are similarly matched in terms of passenger space, although the Ford Expedition has noticeably more headroom and legroom than the Sequoia — perfect for long trips.
SUVs are made for the long haul, so it makes sense for them to be as comfortable as possible, with plenty of entertainment features. Both the 2015 Sequoia and 2015 Expedition manage this admirably, with a suite of amenities that includes climate control, cruise control, and Bluetooth connectivity. Ford supplies a MyFord Voice-Activated Communications and Entertainment System, while Toyota uses their Entune system.
While fairly well matched in terms of standard equipment, Peotone families with children should take the Expedition’s optional two-screen DVD system into account. Allowing video, music, and games to be played for those in the back — with sound coming through integrated headphones — this add-on is great for long journeys.
Power beneath the hood, luxury in the cabin. The 2015 Ford Expedition is a true winner, and its available now at Terry’s Ford of Peotone. We’re just a short drive from Bradley, IL, so visit our dealership today and take a test drive!
