Vehicles at a Glance

The 2014 Ford Explorer:

  • With competitive fuel economy, you can cheaply cart around the family in an Explorer with much more engine power than a minivan.        
  • It also has outstanding cargo capacity for your next road trip.

The 2014 Ford Expedition:

Performance and Efficiency Preferences Comparing the Cabins

When it comes to deciding which SUV best suits your automotive needs, two of the most important considerations for buyers are power output and fuel economy. The 2014 Ford Explorer balances capability and fuel efficiency, while the 2014 Ford Expedition is all about raw power for high towing capacities:

  • The new Ford Explorer uses a standard 2.5L I-4 engine that produces 168 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, and it returns an estimated 31 mpg on the highway. It is able to tow up to 1,500 lbs. when properly equipped.
  • The new Ford Expedition is outfitted with a standard 5.4L V8 that puts out 310 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. It delivers an estimated 20 mpg on the highway, and it can tow up to 6,000 lbs. 

How Much Room Do You Need?

Both the 2014 Ford Explorer and the 2014 Ford Expedition offer drivers plenty of interior space, but these vehicles are distinct from one another in the kinds of room they offer.

The new Ford Explorer offers maximum seating for up to 5 occupants, and provides a substantial amount of cargo space. Up to 34.3 cubic feet of luggage can be transported without having to fold down any seats. 

If you're in need of a passenger vehicle that can comfortably transport up to 8 people at one time, the Ford Expedition has you covered. Even with a full cabin, it can still accommodate up to 18.6 cubic feet of cargo without compromising seating.
