Overview of the Ford Escape

Learn about the Ford Escape

Summary

The Ford Expedition is a super spacious, family-friendly SUV with the hard-working capability of a pickup truck. Here you get a range of top-notch safety features, plenty of seating and storage capacity and a reliable ride on all terrains. Drivers appreciate the smooth, easy manoeuvrability of a large vehicle that proves much simpler to park than you might expect. While fuel economy for a car of this size is always a bit of a challenge, Expedition trims like the XL, XLT, Limited and Platinum all offer gas-conserving start-stop technology to reduce sticker shock at the pump.

Safety

The Expedition’s safety lineup starts with front and side impact airbags, plus an anti-lock braking system that’s been preventing skidding since the earliest models. Look to versions from 2007 and up for stability controls that come in handy when off-roading. Reversing cameras were added in 2008, along with an external washer so you’re never blind backing up. Other features across newer models from 2018 include:

  • Adaptive cruise control to maintain a safe distance from other vehicles 
  • Blind-spot monitoring and lane-departure warning systems for highway safety
  • Active park assist with side sensors to increase driver awareness 
  • Voice-activated navigation and real-time traffic, weather and fuel station location updates
  • Tire-pressure monitoring to maximize fuel economy and minimize wear-and-tear

Interior

The Expedition may have the utility of a truck, but the interior is all about comfort. Three rows of seating accommodate eight adults with plenty of legroom. You’ll find dual climate zones in first-generation vehicles, and three zones later on. Third-generation Expeditions boast 10-way powered seat adjusters and lumbar support so you can ride in custom comfort—captain’s chairs can also be heated or cooled. The most recent vehicles offer a panoramic Vista Roof®1 upgrade for a bright, airy interior.

Technology

Expect to find impressive technology even in older Expeditions. The earliest models start with illuminated running boards and a thumping sound system with subwoofer. Move up through the years and you start to see high-tech add-ons like the flashy SYNC 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch colour touchscreen. In the newest models, you can look forward to:

  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity
  • 4G Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 devices
  • Optional rear-seat headrest-mounted screens for streaming cable and satellite TV
  • 360-degree camera system for added safety

Space

Entry-level Expeditions easily offer enough cargo space behind the third row of seats for large family-sized grocery hauls. You can almost double that space by folding down the back row, and both rear rows can stow away if you have a major move. For even more storage, the Expedition MAX is a whole foot longer than the standard trim.

Comfort

Drivers report that the Ford Expedition handles as well as much smaller vehicles. Power comes from the standard EcoBoost V6 engine, and tow-hooks on four-wheel drive models mean a fully equipped Expedition can pull up to 9,300 pounds. With the innovative Terrain Management system, you’ll benefit from a smooth ride through gravel, snow, sand, mud or ruts.
