Whats the main difference between the Expedition and Expedition Max?
The main difference between the two, besides length, is towing capacity and cargo space. Even the Chevy Suburban, long considered the top SUV for towing, can’t compete. The Suburban towing capacity is 7,800 lbs. Ford’s Expedition can be optioned to exceed 9,300 lbs. With the Max, that number only drops to 9,000 lbs.
The fuel economy is on par with the competition, though not excellent. For either SUV you’re looking at 17 mpg City, 23 mpg Highway, with an average of 19 mpg. For Chevy’s Suburban, the numbers are better at 21 City and 27 Highway. The good news is that in spite of being truck-based, either version rides fairly civilized. Handling is on a par with much smaller SUVs as well.
Expedition Max Trunk and Cargo Space
Most of the extra space resulting from the Expedition Max's extended body and wheelbase length goes straight to the cargo bay, which includes an impressive 34.3-cubic-foot space with the third-row seats in place. Folding down the third-row seats expands that space to 73.3 cubic feet while folding down the second-row seats results in a capacious 121.5 cubic feet. There is more than enough room in the Expedition Max's trunk for a full team's baseball gear. These are substantial improvements over the regular-length Expedition.
In-cabin storage solutions are plentiful, too, with a small-items storage tray and an enormous center console storage bin provided upfront along with a spacious glove box. There are large door side pockets front and back, and large cupholders are provided for every seat.
