Best Ford SUV for Your Family | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL 

It's important that you pick the right SUV for your family. You need one that can accommodate your needs, whether those are strength for towing an RV or efficiency for saving money. The Escape, Explorer, and Expedition are the three most popular Ford SUVs at Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove, Illinois. Here's a look at each of them to help you decide which is best for your family.


2021 Ford Escape

As a compact SUV, the dimensions of the 2002 Escape are smaller than other models in this lineup, but it still excels within its class. As a two-row family vehicle, it sits up to five people and still offers a best-in-class 40.7 inches of legroom in the second row. And its versatile cabin allows you to slide and fold those seats for extra storage space.

If you want an SUV that boasts excellent efficiency, the Escape is your ride. Its available hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions allow you to travel further without having to refill the gas tank. Its 44-mpg average in Chicago city driving makes it an excellent ride for penny-pinching, eco-conscious parents.

2021 Ford Explorer

With a third row and extended length, the Explorer offers more seating than the Escape and more cargo room. Its top highlight, though, is its safety. This durable, dependable SUV earned a 5-Star safety rating from the NHTSA and was an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, the highest honor possible.

One of the contributors to its stellar safety is Ford Co-Pilot360™. This suite of driving assistance tools includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Information System®, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, and more.

If you want a safe, versatile SUV for your family, the Explorer is your best option.

2021 Ford Expedition

The largest SUV in the Ford family, this massive machine is made for large families who want power and luxury. This eight-seat behemoth offers all the bells and whistles, from a premium B&O Sound System to the FX4 Off-Road Package to special editions like the King Ranch® that offer style and comfort upgrades.

Its powerful 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine produces a staggering 400 horsepower and can tow up to 9,300 pounds when properly equipped (a best-in-class achievement). This is definitely the SUV if you plan to tow a boat or camper on vacation.
