Here at your San Diego Ford dealership, we’ve already talked about getting ready for shorter day and weekend trips this summer. But we also wanted to check in with those of you planning longer stretches on the road, or planning shorter getaways with heavy loads. While any Ford SUV is a great choice for a road trip, when it comes to towing your trailer, boat, or anything else that needs to come with you, there’s a clear choice: the 2017 Ford Expedition.

The all-new Ford Expedition features Pro Trailer Backup Assist, a class-exclusive feature that will make it easier than ever to launch a boat, back up a trailer, and utilize the outstanding towing capabilities of the SUV. Of Ford Expedition buyers, over 50% have said they value its towing capabilities, and over 15% tow something on a regular weekly or monthly basis. As always, the Ford company has listened to its customers, and worked to improve the capabilities so that the 2017 Ford Expedition tows better and more than ever before.

The Pro Trailer Backup Assist actually allows drivers to steer the trailer with a control knob, and the SUV will automatically move its wheels to get the trailer where it needs to go. Even for experienced towers, the ability to let the car do the hard work and get your backup angle right on the first try will save time, and for less experienced drivers, make the whole process easier and safer.

Combine this with a best-in-class towing capability of 9,300 pounds, and it’s hard to think of a better choice than the 2017 Ford Expedition when it comes to your boats and trailers.

This summer, make the most of your long road trips or beloved boat, and invest in an all-new Ford Expedition. You can find this remarkable SUV, and learn more about how it makes towing easier, here at your home for new and used Ford cars.
