2017 Ford Expedition

2017 Ford Expedition vs. 2017 Toyota Sequoia

The 2017 Ford Expedition has strong capabilities within the full-size SUV segment, offering a powerful turbocharged V6 engine, class-leading towing capacity, and comfortable seating for up to eight. Drivers looking for a full-size SUV will most likely review the 2017 Toyota Sequoia as well, but this comparison goes to show the many areas where Ford's SUV wins out. After reading this comparison, visit Terry's Ford of Peotone near Bradley, IL to see how the new Expedition stands above the competition. 

Towing Capacity

If you want to play tough, you need a ride that can keep up and Ford's eight-passenger SUV does not disappoint. 

  • 2017 Ford Expedition: With a monstrous maximum towing capacity of 9,200 pounds, the 2017 Expedition allows you to bring along a large boat or camper. The Expedition also offers an integrated Trailer Brake Controller that synchronizes vehicle and trailer brakes for seamless braking while towing. 
  • 2017 Toyota Sequoia: The 2017 Sequoia has a maximum tow capacity of only 7,400 pounds, limiting the amount of stuff you can bring along with you on a trip.


When it comes to tech, the new Ford Expedition again outclasses the competition:

  • 2017 Ford Expedition: With the SYNC® 3 App suite, Sony audio system, integrated navigation, and a backup camera, the 2017 Expedition is loaded with technology. The Expedition also offers a Forward and Reverse Sensing System that uses ultrasonic sensors in the bumpers to audibly alert drivers to objects when moving forward or backing up at a slow speed. This SUV can also be equipped with Keyless Entry with Push-Button Start, making it easier to unlock this model and start the engine without digging for keys.
  • 2017 Toyota Sequoia: The Sequoia does offer the Entune App Suite and a back up camera, but it falls short of the Expedition's technology offerings. For example, the Sequoia doesn't offer keyless ignition, and you'll also miss the ease of turn-by-turn directions to navigate you through your adventures.
