Ford Expedition vs. Ford Expedition EL

Having a Tough Time Deciding Between the Ford Expedition & the Ford Expedition EL? Allow Medved Ford to Offer Some Assistance!

Within the competitive segment of full-size SUVs in the automotive industry, surely a standout is the extremely capable and family friendly Ford Expedition! If you are interested in the 2017 Expedition, you may have noticed that there are eight varying trims to choose from. At Medved Ford, we encourage auto shoppers in Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, Littleton, Parker and Monument CO to explore the differences between the Expedition XLT base trim and the XLT EL trim!

All trims of the 2017 Ford Expedition come equipped with a powerful and efficient 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine that is combined with an advanced 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission! Since the base XLT trim of the new Expedition possesses an impressive amount of premium convenience and entertainment features, the key difference between it and the EL is based on size and cargo capacity, and it is a remarkably big difference.

The name of the trim itself implies this key differentiator. The 2017 Ford Expedition EL, the Extended Length, offers a tremendous amount of interior space in regards to both passenger volume and cargo volume. The new EL is longer and taller than the XLT, and is a perfect SUV for those of you with large families and need a great deal of cargo space! For the XLT, cargo volume behind the first row is 108.3 cubic feet, behind the second row is 55 cubic feet, and behind the third row is 18.6 cubic feet. Comparatively, the EL consists of 130.8 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the first row, 85.5 cubic feet behind the second row, and a whopping 42.6 cubic feet behind the third row- more than double that of the XLT trim!

If you are interested in either the 2017 Expedition XLT or Expedition EL and you live in the Castle Rock, Colorado Springs, Littleton, Parker or Monument areas, please feel free to visit our dealership at 1404 South Wilcox St in Castle Rock where you can find the ideal Ford for you!
