Can do what your typical passenger vehicle can't.

Can do what your typical passenger vehicle can’t.

You choose a full-size SUV for all the added capabilities it offers you and your family. Accommodate passengers, up to eight, in comfort. Haul lots of cargo when called upon to do so. And do other things as well that many other passenger vehicles can’t, like towing a boat or trailer weighing up to 9,200 pounds when properly equipped. When it comes to delivering the capability you need, the Ford Expedition is the full-size SUV that can do it all.
Versatile seating configurations for carrying people and cargo

Cargo Capacity

Along with exceptional comfort for up to eight passengers, the Ford Expedition provides exceptional cargo-carrying capability when you need it — up to a maximum 108.3 cu. ft. in the regular-length model or a best-in-class maximum 130.8 cu. ft. in the extended-length Expedition EL.* And with 4x2 and 4x4 configurations, you can take whatever you’re carrying just about anywhere. That’s outstanding versatility!
*Behind 1st-row seats with the 2nd- and 3rd-row seats folded flat. Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and weight distribution. Class is Extended Utilities based on Ford segmentation.
Truck Apps tools for towing and off-roading

Truck Apps

Truck Apps provides a robust series of tools to enhance towing and off-roading. Accessed with controls on the steering wheel, the information is displayed in the gauge cluster. Input, track and save information about specific trailers and manage how you use them. A trailer name, its trailer brake control settings and mileage can all be stored. The off-road tools include displays of lateral, vertical and turning radius information and the 4x4 system and traction control status.
Power Liftgate

Power Liftgate

The Expedition offers an available power liftgate. A push of the button on your key fob or inside the cabin (on the instrument panel or in the cargo area) conveniently opens or closes it, allowing you to easily load groceries, luggage or anything else. If you need really quick access to the cargo area, you can manually open just the liftgate glass.

Technology helps keep your vehicle’s power and capability under control, particularly when you’re towing. When you’re stopped on an incline, standard Hill Start Assist automatically works with the anti-lock brakes to hold the vehicle in place for up to two seconds while you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator.10  When you’ve activated the standard Hill Descent Control™ (in 4x4 model), the braking system automatically engages as needed to keep you in control while descending steep grades.
