Ford Expedition Interior

The Ford Expedition has a roomy and classy interior. Higher trims are especially attractive and well trimmed. The infotainment system is easy to use, and the graphics are crisp. The cabin also has an appealing look. All the three rows of seats are roomy enough to accommodate adults. On the other hand, the reclining and sliding second-row seats provide flexibility thus making passengers more comfortable. If its cargo room you are looking for, the Ford Expedition performs excellently. It comes with 18.6 cubic feet of cargo space, which increases to 55 cubic feet when you fold the third-row seats. This space further increases to 108.3 cubic feet when you fold second-row and third-row seats.

It has a seating capacity of eight if you use the standard setup. If you opt for the available second-row bucket seats, the capacity reduces by one. The benefit of using second-row bucket seats is ease of getting in and out of the third row. Power-adjustable driver's seat and cloth upholstery are standard. Heated and cooled front seats, heated outboard second-row seats, and leather upholstery are available. There is adequate insulation of the cabin against external noise. Also, all the three rows have plenty of legroom even for taller occupants to ride in comfort. The front seats offer plenty of support and comfort. If you have young children, then you will appreciate the LATCH system, which comes with numerous tie-downs for baby seats.

Standard interior features include a rearview camera, satellite radio, and a voice-activated SYNC infotainment system, featuring a 4.2-inch display screen, smartphone integration, and Bluetooth connectivity. Also standard is Ford's MyKey feature, which allows you to limit speed and volume for teenage drivers or valets. Optional features range from a power moonroof, push-button start, a 12-speaker Sony audio system, dual-zone automatic climate control, HD radio, Siri Eyes Free, and the SYNC 3 infotainment system, featuring an eight-inch touchscreen, enhanced voice recognition, and navigation. The infotainment system responds to voice commands quickly.

Ford Expedition Performance and Handling

Despite being a large SUV, the Expedition is manageable on the road. Its ride is exceptionally smooth as compared to rivals, thanks to its four-wheel independent suspension. If you upgrade to the three-way adaptive dampers, the ride becomes even more enjoyable. Responsive and precise steering also contributes to its easy-to-drive nature. It is also one of the fastest cars in its class. It has one of the best towing capabilities in its class.

Under the hood, it comes with a 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 engine, with an output of 365 hp. The engine is then mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Although the engine may be smaller than its V8 rivals, it still delivers enough muscle to jet around town, move down the highway or even travel uphill without any issues. Shifts are smooth and precise.

Ford Expedition Safety and Reliability

In government testing, it earns an impressive five-star rating on almost all safety aspects. It comes standard with stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, trailer sway control, full-length side curtain airbags and front-seat side airbags. Other safety features include rear-cross traffic alert and front parking sensors. Blind spot monitoring is available.

The Ford Expedition is a great choice for large families that tow heavy loads frequently. Its standard V6 engine is powerful enough to handle daily tasks comfortably. It is also comfortable and composed on the highway while absorbing bumps with ease. Its reliability is better than most of its classmates, and its starting price makes it a great option for value-minded shoppers. It has the best combination of value and quality in the large SUV class.
