Available in four trim levels: XLT, Limited, King Ranch and Platinum, the 2017 Expedition is regularly found at the top of critic and consumer lists when comparing large three-row SUVs. How does the Expedition compare to the GMC Yukon? The Ford Expedition boasts more room than almost every other SUV on the road, including the GMC Yukon. If you plan to use the third row of seating regularly, the Expedition is the clear choice.
If you’re concerned with the limits of a V6 engine, don’t be. The 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine has been proven to last, and is able to outduel many of the V8 engines on the market. In terms of cabin space, there really isn’t another three-row crossover that can comfortably fit as many passengers or cargo as the Expedition.
