In 1997, the giant-SUV craze was in full swing and Ford introduced the Expedition as the company’s largest entry in this crowded market segment. Today, the Expedition, based on the ever-popular F-150 pickup, still holds true to its roots as a hard-working rugged truck that can also carry a large family around in relative comfort.
This full-size SUV seats up to eight adults in its current rendition. The third generation appeared in 2007 and Ford has added only minor updates since then.
Despite rumors of a total redesign for 2014, Expedition fans will have to wait for a new generation of their favorite vehicle. The Ford Expedition continues into 2014 without any notable changes.Read more »
As the top-of-the-line Expedition, the King Ranch shows off its status with special interior and exterior badging and Chaparral leather seats. Options include 20-inch premium painted or chrome-clad aluminum wheels, both available with the King Ranch badging on the center caps. The King Ranch includes so many standard features that no package options exist for this style, although several stand-alone options are available. A special equipment group bundles several of these options, such as the voice-activated navigation system and power-deployed running boards, and makes them a standard set of features.
The second of three trim levels, the Limited steps up the level of luxury by adding such items as perforated leather-trimmed heated and cooled front bucket seats with 10-way power adjustability and a driver memory feature as standard equipment. The third-row bench seat gains a power-fold mechanism, and in the second row available bucket seats can replace the standard bench. An upgraded sound system with seven speakers and a subwoofer also becomes standard, as do the safety-oriented features of a rearview camera and a forward sensing system.
As the base Expedition, the XLT includes a large assortment of standard features, such as an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 sound system that includes Sirius XM radio, and Ford’s Sync with AppLink system. Among the highlights of the standard equipment are a reverse sensing system that warns drivers of objects behind the vehicle, power-adjustable foot pedals, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. The second-row bench seat’s center section features a nifty slide-forward mechanism that puts small children within easy reach of parents in the front seats. Optional equipment and packages provide nearly everything that’s available as standard equipment on higher trim levels.
