The Ford Expedition EL is one of the largest vehicles on sale today, which makes it useful if you need to haul eight people and all of the luggage they could ever bring along. With a high towing rating, the Expedition EL is one of the most capable SUVs out there -- provided you need all of those abilities.
What's New for 2015
The Expedition EL gets a major facelift for 2015. Front and rear styling has been revised, but the biggest change is under the hood. Ford's 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6, with 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, replaces an old V8. There's a new top-level Platinum trim, as well as new options like MyFord Touch and a continuously adaptive suspension system.
