2017 Ford Expedition vs 2017 Cadillac Escalade

If you need all the interior passenger and cargo space possible, you can’t go wrong with the 2017 Ford Expedition, which we have right here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL. In fact, the new Ford Expedition is one of the largest SUVs on the market today. But don’t let that size fool you. The 2017 Expedition is also impressively fuel efficient and surprisingly fun and easy to maneuver. Of course, it’s also incredibly powerful, but that shouldn’t come as a surprise.


But it’s the new Expedition’s interior passenger and cargo space that we want to focus on today as we compare the new Ford Expedition with one of its toughest competitors – the new Cadillac Escalade. Given its price tag and “luxurious” reputation, you would think nothing could touch the new Escalade, but as you’ll see in this 2017 Ford Expedition versus 2017 Cadillac Escalade model comparison, the 2017 Expedition leaves its “luxury” competition in the dust.
