In today’s overcrowded world, people tend to buy compact SUVs or crossovers as they are much easier to drive and manage. But this doesn’t mean full-size SUVs don’t have a future. Yes, they are seldom seen but they do exist.


Ford Expedition Front Angular


Ford Expedition is one such full-size SUV that could easily put other vehicles on the road to shame. It is enormous. It is so huge that it makes parking its younger sibling, Ford Everest an easy task. Ford has loaded the Expedition with a ton of features so that you can literally live in this gigantic SUV. We have shortlisted a few of the interesting features.


Generous cabin


Ford Expedition Seating


This is quite obvious. Being a full-size SUV, the Ford Expedition has got a generous cabin. There is ample space for each occupant. The rear seats are the best place in this vehicle. They offer superior comfort and support. You won’t need to worry about your sitting posture as there is more than sufficient amount of head and legroom. Even the last row of seats have got a good amount of space.


Advanced infotainment system

Going through the Expedition specs, you’ll come across the infotainment system of this car. It might not be the largest screen but it surely comes with many features. It supports both Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Alexa. It comes loaded with Ford’s SYNC 3 system, it has a voice-activated navigation system, etc.


Powerful engine and AWD

Under the hood of the Ford Expedition is a massive 3.5-litre EcoBoost engine which produces 375 hp at 5000 rpm and the peak torque of 637 Nm kicks in at 3500 rpm. These high power and torque figures are necessary to get this humongous beast going. The engine is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Expedition comes with AWD as standard. This enables it to perform well even when the surface gets challenging.


Panoramic vista roof


Ford Expedition Roof


The Expedition has got a large panoramic sunroof which enhances the overall riding experience in this SUV. It opens and closes at a touch of a button. Sitting at the rear seat and enjoying the night sky above through this sunroof is an experience that can’t be described in words.


Advanced cargo manager


Ford Expedition Cargo


This is a clever feature that Ford has included in its latest Expedition model. It helps you sort your luggage and stuff in a more organised and optimised manner so as to utilise less space and store more.


Rear flip glass


This comes in handy when you don’t want to open the full boot gate or when you are parked in a tight parking spot. The rear window glass flips open and you can have access to the boot shelf. It might not sound that interesting but it is really functional.


360-degree camera


Ford Expedition 360 Camera


This is a must-have feature considering the size of the Ford Expedition. It is understandable that managing this SUV isn’t going to be easy but the 360-degree camera provides a clear bird’s eye view. It really helps to see what is around your ride. To make sure that you get a crystal clear vision, there are front and rear camera washers as well.


Wireless charging and USB ports


Ford Expedition Ports


Many smartphones now come with wireless charging capability. And you can use this very feature in the Expedition as well. Ford has included a wireless charger in the SUV. Other than that there are a total of 6 USB ports located at various places to make sure that each occupant has access to a power source to charge his/her smartphone.


LED headlamps and tail lamps


Ford Expedition LED Taillights


The new Ford Expedition has got redesigned headlamps and tail lamps to depict a more positive appearance. The LED headlamps look gorgeous especially with the LED DRL strip around them. The LED tail lamps are bigger and fit in perfectly in this large SUV.


Power-deployable running boards


Ford Expedition Power Running Boards


To make ingress and egress easier, Ford has used power-deployable running boards in the Expedition. These boards open up when they detect the doors are open. It is a handy feature, considering the fact that the Ford Expedition is really a large vehicle.


Power-folding 2nd and 3rd-row seats


Ford Expedition Power Folding Seats


Even though there is ample amount of space in the Expedition, you might need to fold down the 2nd and/or 3rd-row seats in order to accommodate more luggage. You’ll be glad to know that to do so you don’t have to struggle with complicated mechanisms. You can fold down the 2nd and/or 3rd-row seats with a simple touch of buttons.
