New Expedition Offers Solution to Travel Fatigue

You rush to get everyone in the car, fight to get the bags in and out of the vehicle and race to catch the shuttle from the terminal parking area. Then you stand in one line after another, suffer through indignities necessitated by the world we live in today and finally, after a long flight where your knees spend most of the time getting rammed by the seat in front of you, you finally arrive at your destination. Then you find your bags, find a ride and finally arrive exhausted at your destination. If this sounds like your normal holiday travel schedule, the folks at Chapman Ford offer an interesting alternative: Why not drive where you’re going during the holidays?

The Ford Expedition is the comfortable people hauler that offers the room, the technology and all the creature comforts to make your trip much more enjoyable than air travel. “The all-new Expedition fits eight people comfortably and can carry all of their luggage, while keeping everyone connected and entertained,” said Ford engineer Todd Hoevener, who is putting his money where his mouth is. Hoevener chose to use an Expedition to take his family from Michigan to Florida this December. “It’s really the ultimate road trip vehicle.”

Comfort the Key to Enjoying Your Trip

If you’re going more than an hour on a plane, chances are by the time to get your destination you’ll not only be in pain but exhausted. Airlines make their money by cramming as many people onto a plane as possible, which means there is very little room between your heels and hips. Not so in the new Ford Expedition, where a generous allotment of space in all three rows takes the fatigue, and pain, out of traveling. It’s also much easier to stay connected in the Expedition, with standard USB charging ports on each row to keep all the electronics up to optimal levels. That means the kids can play games or watch movies and not practice sticking their fingers in each other’s ears. If you do all agree on a music choice, an available 12-speaker supreme audio system will bathe the entire cabin in concert-quality sound.

Long Range Means Less Fuel Stops

With a large fuel tank and best-in-class gas mileage, the two-wheel drive Expedition Max delivers up to 538 miles in range. That’s farther than from Phoenix to Los Angeles or San Diego, meaning you can spend more time moving and less time ferrying the herd in and out of convenience stores. The 3.5L EcoBoost engine is paired with a brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission that delivers a stunning 24 mpg on the highway. That makes the Expedition the only full-size SUV to earn 20 mpg in combined driving. The Expedition is also as beautiful to look at as it is to drive. With six different trim levels, there’s a price point for everyone. See the entire Expedition lineup and take a test drive today at Chapman Ford.
