My wife and have been hardcore European and Japanese car fans since college (Volvo, Audi, Honda). As an active couple in our late thirties with three rapidly growing children, a large steep mountainside driveway in Alaska and recreational activities which include mountain biking, skiing and pulling a travel trailer; a large 4X4 SUV seemed to be in order. I looked carefully at the Toyota Sequoia, Yukon XL/Suburban and then happened to drive a rental Expedition while on a business trip. I was thoroughly impressed with the drivability/handling, interior layout/space and the overall package despite being an older platform. We ended up purchasing a lightly used 2017 EL Limited for a steeply discounted price. The front seats are just as comfortable as any Volvo we have owned. The space utilization is exceptional and the technology integration is an added bonus. It is quiet and composed on the highway. With the responsive steering and relatively small turning radius, my wife has no issues driving this into the tighter parking lots in town which she frequents. We are looking forward to using the 4WD (on dedicated snow tires) this winter. I can’t express how impressed we are with this vehicle! Excellent job Ford. You have won over some difficult, foreign car biased customers!
