The Largest Full-Size SUV in its Class
Okay, let’s get to the obvious first. You came here looking for something enormous, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with the 2016 Ford Expedition EL. All told, the Expedition EL has 130.8 cubic feet of versatile cargo volume, more than any competing vehicle. To put this in perspective, the Chevy Suburban clocks in with 121.1 cubic feet, with the Toyota Sequoia just behind at 120.1.

Although the Expedition EL clearly went with “more is more” in the cargo department, it’s among the only models in its class to employ a V6 powertrain. So what gives? Well, that’s because it isn’t just any V6. The EL’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 delivers 365 hp and a class-best 420 lb-ft of torque, resulting in an outstanding 9,200-pound towing capacity. For those keeping score at home, all of these figures best the Chevy Suburban.
SYNC 3 is Finally Here
It’s been a few years in the making, but the tech interface we’ve been waiting for has arrived. SYNC 3 replaces SYNC with MyFord Touch, and the results are obvious. Operators enjoy high-speed performance and enhanced voice recognition, which makes phone connectivity, music streaming and turn-by-turn navigation more easy to access than ever. Don’t be surprised if this becomes the interface that all others are measured by.

Great Safety Features
It’s become a common trend for Ford vehicles, that every year or so, they’ll unveil a new safety feature that impresses you immediately. This year, there are two: the BLIS Blind Spot Warning System with Cross-Traffic Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control. BLIS monitors the rear of the vehicle, ensuring that no bogies come creeping up your backside, while the Adaptive Cruise Control detects slowing traffic ahead and slows your vehicle accordingly. They’re both awesome, and you’ll probably hear much more about them in the coming months.
So, are you not properly impressed? We sure are. The 2016 Ford Expedition EL is now available at Harbin Automotive as well, meaning that you can come show your awe in person at our Scottsboro, AL-based dealership. Schedule your test drive today!
