Hassett Automotive


It’s said, ‘the hardest part of flying a plane is take off and landing’. The hardest part of driving is parking, blind spots…well…driving!

Chevy touts Tahoe and Suburbans as its big V8…but it’s the Expedition & Expedition EL’s Twin Turbo charged DOHC V/6 that takes off faster, stops shorter and cruises with a better slalom speed with its lower center of gravity.

Blind Spots are virtually eliminated with FORD’s standard Blind Spot Mirror or optional BLIS/Blind Spot Monitoring System with audible alerts — even for Cross Traffic up to 45 feet away in either direction.

Ford’s rear sensor beepers and the standard rear camera, with guidelines, makes backing into a parking spot or hooking up a trailer in one go. But, there is one – very important – thing that people overlook – getting in and out of your vehicle is the thing you do constantly, it should be comfortable; the Expedition & EL has a lower step-in height than the higher Chevy. And, the Expedition & EL has a lower rear loading floor that is flat; the difference is apparent when loading gear to groceries.

The 2015 Ford Expedition can do it all! 6 Spacious models, whether the regular or extra cargo carrying EL,  you get a comfortable ride for people who want the flexibility to carry cargo, up to 8 passengers or both!

And 9200 lbs – Best-In- Class Towing – 700 lbs more than Chevy – That’s an extra jet ski or larger boat!

Plus…an automatic controlled damping suspension that takes the rock & roll out of the ride.

The 2015 Expedition & EL has available:

  • Power Liftgate
  • Integrated Trailer Brake Controller
  • Heated/Cooled Seats
  • 110 Volt Power Outlet
  • Push Button Start
  • Sync/MyFord Touch
  • BLIS/Blind Spot With Cross Traffic Alert
  • Power Adjustable Pedals

Standard features include My Key, Rear View Camera and Hands Free technology. It’s Ford Hands down!

Chevy’s MY-Link has Bluetooth, a touch screen, voice control for audio, phone & navigation.  Ford also has voice control for climate functions and over 10,000 voice commands! Try saying “I’m hungry” on MY-Link or “set temp 70 degrees”. Now, that’s easy…that’s how hands free safety is suppose to be.

Cargo space: 2nd & 3rd rows fold flat! The Suburban offers 121 cubic feet….Expedition EL is 130 cubic feet. That’s 10 cubic feet more than the Suburban – that’s 4 to 6 large suit cases! Say “that doesn’t matter” to a family on vacation or travel sports. And Chevy doesn’t fold flat. When you need to haul gear and people – Advantage FORD.

Engines: Chevy promotes 5.3 V8…sounds real big and heavy…355 hrp/383 lb ft. But, heavy duty is Ford’s F-150 proven EcoBoost V6 with 365 hp and a whopping boat-pulling 420 lb ft torque. When you need to tow, haul gear and people – Advantage FORD.

Oh, Did I mention it took Chevy a major redesign to get rid of the hillbilly porch bench and get a fold down rear 3rd seat? Their 3rd row passengers have their knees higher than their hips.  Plus, Chevy did not change to an independent rear axle suspension. Mercedes has it, Porsche has it, Escalade has it, Expedition has it. One automobile magazine said, “Chevy’s rear seat is where you put adults and kids you don’t like”. When you need max comfort, max capability and priced less than a Chevy – Advantage FORD.
