The first Ford Expedition was released in 1997 and was designed as a large SUV that would outshine the Explorer and replace the compact two door Ford Bronco. Demonstrating confidence and capability, the Ford Expedition has always been a popular SUV model that features as an all-round family car. Whether you're cruising on the highway to work or looking to take it on an off-road weekend adventure, the Ford Expedition stands up to it all.

The latest Ford expedition was released this year and is very similar to the 2022 model, with just a few updates added. It features the same powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine, 10 speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system which puts it in the category for top all-American SUV options. 

Interested in getting your hands on the latest Ford Expedition model? Below, we'll take a closer look at this top range SUV and all of the features it offers in an unbiased review. 

The design

As with all of the Ford Expeditions, it features a sleek and eye-catching design that allows you to travel in both style and comfort. There are a variety of available exterior packages and trim options when it comes to the Ford Expedition, from 22-inch premium, black-painted aluminum wheels with black power-deployable running boards on select trims, to exterior zone lighting, LED reflective headlamps, and LED signature lighting. You don't need to worry about taking your off roading car into the office with this model as the sleek design means it looks great in the parking garage too. 

To top things off, passengers in the rear are in for a real treat by nightfall as there is a panoramic vista roof, allowing your passengers to watch the distant stars across the night sky, or even adding to the ambience if you're camping inside the vehicle. 

If you're looking to make the vehicle particularly unique and eye catching, try out some American Truxx rims, known for their open lug cap design and variety of different bolt patterns to choose from. 

Safety features

More and more in this day and age, safety features are growing of increased importance on a car, so much so that people are choosing safety features over looks. The Ford Expedition 2023 has a range of both active and passive safety features.

The blind spot information system is particularly useful for if you are towing a trailer as it alerts you if there is something in your blind spot, as well as assistive steering as a backup if you do not respond to the alert.

Other valuable safety features include:

  • Ford Co-Pilot 360 technology
  • Intersection camera alerts
  • Assisted parking 

The technology features

Getting down to one of the most important parts, the Ford Expedition has a range of tech features that will keep you and your passengers comfortable and entertained throughout the drive. One of the best features is the SYNC 4 technology with a 12-inch LCD touchscreen with built in navigation and voice recognition technology. 

The productivity screen provides a range of customizable driving experiences and an abundance of driving information clearly displayed. There are also rear seat entertainment screens in the headrests, available with 4G Liter hotspot technology that can support up to 10 devices from 50 feet away. Playing your favorite tunes in the vehicle is an exceptional experience too as there is a 22-speaker B&O® Unleashed sound system by Bang & Olufsen with a 15.5-inch screen and a subwoofer.

Fuel economy

The most efficient Ford Expedition that drivers can obtain is the base rear-drive variant, which returns 17 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg combined. The least efficient Timberline trim returns 16 mpg in the city, 19 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg combined. 

This model still has impressive horsepower though as the V6 engine outperforms other major SUV alternatives like the Chevrolet Suburban, or the Jeep Grand Wagon. 

Overall, the Ford Expedition is a great option for active families looking for something to get to work in during the week, while also being a high capability option for off-roading adventures too.
