With camping season knocking on our door, scroll along as we give you the best reasons why the Ford Expedition is perfect to have your camping nights.
The Ford Expedition’s interior and exteriors scream luxury and bulky!
Let us talk more about the expedition. The car is known for being spacious, best-in-class fuel economy, robust off-roading capability, advanced technology suite, and enhanced comfort and safety features single out this SUV as a camping king.
With summer coming in, there is no better time to plan your camping trip in an SUV to create lasting memories and connect with nature, and guess what? The Ford Expedition may be the best vehicle to do it in.
Andrew Gregory, Brand Marketing Manager of Ford Middle East said, “The Ford Expedition’s versatility, comfort, and capability have long made it a popular SUV of choice for drivers in the Middle East, however, what people may not realize is that it’s also an ideal SUV for camping. With a spacious interior, and powerful off-road capabilities – coupled with advanced technology and safety features – the Ford Expedition perfectly fits the bill for those who enjoy spending time in the great outdoors.”
Here are five reasons why this car is most suitable.
- Spacious Interior
Whether you’re carrying lots of passengers or cargo, or even both, the Ford Expedition offers ample room – a crucial factor ahead of any camping trip. With seating for up to eight passengers and up to 3.4 cubic meters of cargo space with the second and third rows folded down, there is plenty of room for camping gear and supplies – tents, barbecue grills, drinks coolers, sleeping bags, and much more. To keep drivers and passengers refreshed on the road, a large center console fridge can stock plenty of water and juices.
- Robust Off-Roading
The Timberline is the most off-road-ready trim of the Ford Expedition yet. A High-Output 3.5L V6 engine delivers a best-in-class 440hp and 691 Nm of torque, while segment-first Trail Turn Assist allows tight pivots on low-friction surfaces, including sand dunes, so you can reach even the remotest sites to set up camp. Standard Trail Control operates like a low-speed cruise control, allowing you to focus on obstacles in the terrain, and an upgraded modified ‘rough road’ suspension with a wider wheel track providing more stability. Even the standard Expedition 4×4 comes with an electronic limited slip differential, Sand driving mode and an off-road front bumper for improved approach angle. The Timberline’s off-roading prowess is accentuated by features it shares with Ford’s Raptor family – namely, their engine, distinctive front bumper, and skid plates.
- Best-In-Class Fuel Economy
Compared to the typical V8 engine of its class, Expedition has a smaller
displacement, lightweight, aluminum Twin-Turbo EcoBoost engine, standard 10-speed Automatic Transmission and Auto-Start Stop, all combining to give better acceleration and reduced fuel consumption. Port Fuel Direct Injection improves power output, efficiency, and emissions – long road trips don’t need to be as expensive to fuel as you think.
- Advanced User Experience Technology
The Ford Expedition features a 12″; or best-in-class 15.5”; touchscreen for easy navigation and smartphone integration, and an available best-in-class 15.5” B&O.
Unleashed 22-Speaker Sound System delivers a whopping 1,080 watts of power, ensuring all passengers are in for a fun road trip. Meanwhile, the SYNC 4 system integrates smartphones into the Expedition experience, making it simple to play music, navigate apps, and control your device through either voice or touch. Once you’ve arrived at your campsite, the Timberline’s Zone Lighting sets the perfect scene to relax.
- Safety Feature Suite
Wherever you’re going, Expedition will get you there safely. This SUV boasts more advanced safety features than any competitor – including Pre-Collision Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Assist, and Lane Centering Assist – ranking it among the safest SUVs in the Middle East. The safety features are specialized for off-road routes too, with front-view and object-detection cameras on the lookout for obstacles. Whether you’re looking for a standout SUV that rules the highway or desert, the Ford Expedition offers enough options to keep you covered, whatever adventure you’re about to embark on. The Ford Expedition is available for sale in most Ford showrooms across the Middle East.
