How Big an SUV Do I Need?


There are so many vehicles on the market that call themselves SUVs, but some look like they would fit your toy poodle and others could carry an entire basketball team to practice.  Which one would work best for you? The folks over at Camby Ford are here to help.


When a compact coupe or sedan just won’t meet your needs, the Escape is here to help. Featuring seating for five, this compact SUV has an easy open liftgate–just wave your foot and watch it rise! Fold down half or all of the 60/40 rear seat to expand your cargo capabilities. There’s plenty of room for your weekend getaway luggage or your sports equipment. Perfect for the hardworking young, active professional.


For the more discerning small family, the Edge has a little more cargo capacity than the Escape with up to 73.4 cubic feet of space available with the rear seat down.  However, where it takes off is in the details. From the power moonroof to leather-stitched interior and LED lighting, it has all the added tech toys and power you are looking for. You’ll find complete convenience packages that will keep your smartphone connected through SYNC and the premium SONY audio system. At the same time, the 2.0L I4 turbocharged engine has plenty of zip to accelerate when needed.


Now you are stepping up to the big boys. The Explorer has an available intelligent four-wheel drive system that detects when added traction is needed, ensuring you’ll always be in control, even when fully loaded.  Seat up to seven in the roomy cabin. Meanwhile, when returning from the DiY store, there’s 80.7 cubic feet of cargo area for those oversized items. It’s capable of taking your family of four on an extended holiday with all your luggage on board while towing up to 5,000 lbs. properly equipped with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine.


Finally, when you require no obstacles, the full-sized Expedition is here to handle the situation. Your entire 7-person family will be seated comfortably with everyone’s luggage stowed in the rear cargo area. Third row DVD entertainment systems, second row captain’s chairs and leather throughout can be added to your personal transit system. You’ll attack back roads with 4WD while listening to your streaming music over the SYNC 3 system.  Pull the family’s boat or RV while putting minimal strain on the beefy 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine and the heavy duty trailering package.

While it seems like every family needs an SUV, not everyone requires one big enough to serve as a bus. The folks down at Camby Ford will be happy to help you determine which one in the Ford line up is designed to fulfill your needs and desires while meeting your budget requirements.
