The new 2018 Ford Expedition takes full-size SUV’s to a whole new level.  With room for 8 people comfortably, there’s a whole load of options that screams luxury in the SUV class from Ford in Ottawa.

Looking for a Ford in Ottawa?  Here are six reasons why you need to explore the Expedition:

Massage seats

Front seats in the expedition will cool you off or heat you up, and they’ll give you a massage at the same time.  Admit it.  You want this.


There are six USB charging slots – two in every row – alongside a 12-volt outlet and a 110-volt plug.  Rear screens can simulcast video on both screens or separately.  

When it comes to engine power, the Ford Expedition sports a 3.5-liter V6 that’s turbocharged and a 10-speed automatic transmission.  The EcoBoost V6 option had a start and stop feature that automatically turns off the engine when stopped, saving fuel when stuck in traffic.


The Wi-Fi hot spot can connect 10 devices, meaning all 8 passengers in the car can be on the Wi-Fi at the same time.  If you’re outside the vehicle, the hotspot has about a 50-foot range.

Sensational Sound

Upgrade to a Bang and Olufsen 12-speaker sound system and you’ll know what it’s like to truly hear great music in your vehicle.

Hauling and Towing

The average boat weighs about 3,000 pounds.  The 2018 Ford Expedition’s towing capacity exceeds that three time over with a whopping 9,300-pound tow load.  When it comes to hauling, folding down the 2nd and 3rd row gives you an incredible four feet wide space to load just about anything.  The Expedition Max will even let you haul sheets of sheetrock and still shut the hatch!

The second and third row folds down with a simple button push.  The middle seats can tilt forward to make it easier for passenger to enter the third row.  The tilt feature works even when there’s a child car seat in place.

High-Tech Safety

Adaptive cruise control, lane departure alerts, blind spot monitors with cross-traffic alerts, rain-sensing front windshield wipers, and Pro Trailer backup assist are just a few of the high-tech safety features.  The Sync 3 screen and Sync Connect keeps you connected, including lock, unlock, locate, and start your vehicle options from anywhere you’re got a cell signal.  The center console features wireless device charging.

The Terrain Management System lets you adjust the traction control to maximize your ride whether you’re towing a heavy load or driving on snow.

Intelligent Access in your key fob lets you automatically open or close the liftgate with your foot when you’ve got your hands tied up.

All of this adds up to the best full-size SUV in Ford’s history.  If you’re looking for a Ford in Ottawa, see the pros at Dan Murphy Ford to check out the 2018 Expedition.
