2016 Ford Expedition vs. 2016 Ford Expedition EL Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Expedition offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Ford Expedition EL, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Expedition and 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Expedition will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Ford Expedition EL. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Expedition and the Ford Expedition EL have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Ford Expedition and the Ford Expedition EL are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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
If you've got something you need to pull, the Ford Expedition will do just as well as the Ford Expedition EL, since they have about the same towing capacity. 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.
