2017 Ford Expedition

2017 Ford Expedition vs. 2017 GMC Yukon

If you need a vehicle that’s more rugged than the typical three-row crossover SUV, a traditional truck-based SUV is the way to go. The 2017 Ford Expedition has seating for eight and a powerful turbocharged engine. If you’re looking for a truck-based SUV, you’ll most likely explore the 2017 GMC Yukon as well. Visit Terry’s Ford of Peotone near Bradley, IL to see how the 2017 Ford Expedition outshines the competition. 

Tow Rating

When it comes to towing big loads, Ford’s full-size SUV beats out the competition. The Expedition provides a class-leading towing capacity of up to 9,200 pounds when properly equipped, allowing driver to tow a large boat or camper with ease. The Expedition also has an integrated Trailer Brake Controller that synchronizes vehicle and trailer brakes for seamless braking while towing. By contrast, the GMC Yukon SUV falls notably short of the Expedition with a maximum tow rating of 8,500 pounds. 


Safety is second to none when shopping for a new vehicle, and the 2017 Ford Expedition stacks up well in that category. 

  • 2017 Ford Expedition: Loaded with standard safety features such as antilock brakes, stability and traction control, trailer sway control, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain air bags, the 2017 Ford Expedition stands out. The Expedition is also equipped with Ford’s programmable MyKey system, which allows owners to specify maximum speed limits and stereo volumes for teen drivers and valets. Additionally, Ford’s SUV received a top five-star rating for overall protection in government crash tests. 
  • 2017 GMC Yukon: While the 2017 Yukon comes with safety equipment like antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, and front-seat side airbags, it doesn’t stand up to the Expedition. The Yukon falls short of the Expedition for overall protection in government crash tests, scoring only four out of five stars, and there’s no equivalent to the MyKey system.
