2018 Ford Expedition vs. 2017 Ford Expedition EL Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Expedition than in the Ford Expedition EL. The Ford Expedition will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Expedition EL.

Convenience
The Ford Expedition EL requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Expedition, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Ford Expedition or the Ford Expedition EL, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Expedition will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Ford Expedition EL.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Expedition is much wider than the Ford Expedition EL, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Ford Expedition, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Expedition EL.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Expedition transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Ford Expedition EL.

Handling
The Ford Expedition has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Expedition EL, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Expedition is clearly the choice over the Ford Expedition EL for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Expedition and the Ford Expedition EL.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Expedition and the Ford Expedition EL. The Ford Expedition has significantly less cargo capacity than the Ford Expedition EL.
