Choosing the Best SUV For Your Family | Morris, IL

Ford Edge SUV.jpeg


The current Ford lineup features seven SUVs for drivers to consider. With each model having benefits to families of various sizes and ages, it can be a challenge to find the right model for yours. A mid-size Ford Edge might be an ideal option for a small family, but not large enough for a family with several kids and pets, while the popular Ford Explorer may be too much vehicle for families with empty nests or those who are just starting out. Learn more about SUV options at Greenway Ford in Morris, IL below, and then find your SUV of choice in our new inventory.



How Much Space Does My Family Need?

That really depends on the size of your family, doesn’t it? The current Ford SUV lineup offers vehicles seating for five to eight passengers and cargo capacities ranging from 68 cu. ft. in the new Ford Escape to 130.8 cu. ft. in the massive Ford Expedition. With so many options available, finding the right configuration for your family may be a challenge, but the team at Greenway Ford in Morris, IL is here to help.

If your family is going to expand in the next few years, it may be a good idea to get a slightly larger model to plan for rapid growth, but if your kids are off to college, downsizing may be a better option. Let the team at our Ford dealership know what the future has in store for you, and we can help you find an option that will make sense for your lifestyle now and in the next few years.


Which Technology & Safety Systems Are Available With Ford SUVs?

From systems that will keep you in touch with your home or office to the latest in adaptive driving aids, Ford SUVs have the advanced safety and connected technology to keep your family protected and entertained. Available safety and technology systems include:


  • SYNC® and SYNC® 3 multimedia and phone system allows drivers to stream media, make hands-free calls, and find destinations without taking their hands off the wheel
  • Rear View Camera systems and adaptive parking aids make backing up and pulling out of parking spaces a snap
  • Adaptive alerts such as BLIS® with Cross Traffic Alert, the Lane Keeping system, and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support assist you when you can’t always see the hazards that are coming
  • PowerFold® third-row seats make changing the configuration of your SUV much easier
  • The hands-free, foot-activated liftgate makes it possible to open and close the rear hatch, even when your hands are full


Can A Ford SUV Tow or Haul As Much As A Pickup Truck?


While the team at our Ford dealership appreciates the power and performance that F-Series pickup trucks provide, the SUV lineup is just as capable of delivering where it counts. From the powerful Ford Expedition and its 9,200 lbs. max towing capacity, to the 3,500 lbs. the Ford Edge can tow, the current SUV lineup is as powerful as ever.

When it comes to hauling cargo or gear, Ford SUVs offer the flexible storage solutions that any size family will find useful. Whether you have to help the starting lineup of a youth basketball team make it to tip off, or get your dogs to the vet, the Ford SUV and crossover lineup is sure to have a solution for you.
