2020 Ford Expedition MAX empty

Isn’t’ that the first thing you do when you go into a cave or inside a tunnel? It’s the first thing I did when I opened the back of the Ford Expedition Max.

What is the difference between the Ford Expedition and the Expedition Max?

The three-row extended-wheelbase Expedition MAX, is about a foot longer than the regular Expedition, coming in at 221.9 inches overall. Ford says the Expedition Max has 78 percent more cargo space in the cargo hold, up to 34.3 cubic feet. In total, the Max can carry 121.5 cubic feet versus the standard SUV’s 104.6 cubic feet.

The Expedition Max teams a twin-turbocharged V-6 .5L EcoBoost Engine with Auto Stop-Start Technology with a 10-speed automatic that will make 375 horsepower that can tow up to 9,000 pounds. The handling is amazing for such a behemoth of a vehicle. Ford learned a lot while they owned Range Rover and it shows in this SUV.
