The 2019 Ford Expedition is a home run in almost every way. Ford blows the competition out of the water with their full-size sedan loaded with technology, safety features, and style.

The Ford Expedition has even won an award for Highest Initial Quality from J.D. Power and Associates for the Large SUV category in 2018. The latest edition of the Ford Expedition for 2019 won the Best Buy Award from Kelley Blue Book as well.

Aside from being a decorated edition to Ford’s fleet, the Expedition is also breaking stereotypes when it comes to SUVs having poor gas mileage. Let’s get into some details and break down exactly what makes the 2019 Ford Expedition price so great.

Introduction

Ford has been around for over a century and that is no easy feat. Many vehicle manufacturers have come and gone but Ford remains the original American automaker and the leading name in the truck market.

One of the best features of the 2019 Ford Expedition is the roominess of the interior. Ford has mastered the interior design for its large vehicles and the Expedition is no exception. When sitting inside the 2019 Ford Expedition, it feels more like sitting in a comfortable lounge. There are armrests, cup holders, and headroom to spare. This makes traveling something to look forward to.

Performance

The 2019 Ford Expedition brings the power of Ford’s truck lines to the SUV market. The 2019 Ford Expedition is equipped with a 3.5L EcoBoost Engine that delivers 375 horsepower and 470 pounds per foot of torque. This gives a surprising amount of towing ability to the Expedition for a total towing capacity of 9,300 pounds. The 2019 Ford Expedition is also equipped with sway control and Ford’s proprietary AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) system.

There is also an available FX4 Off-Road package for those looking to have some fun on the trails or the back road campgrounds. The FX4 Off-Road package includes special features such as premium off-road shocks, electronic limited-slip differential, and two-speed automatic 4WD. It also reinforces the underbody by adding fuel tank protection, skid plates, and a heavy-duty radiator for durability on the trails.

Exterior & Styling

The 2019 Ford Expedition exterior design has been updated with a sleeker design that works better with its boxy style. Instead of keeping the corners uniform with 45-degree angles, Ford has added a slighter steeper angle of attack for the windshield that flows into a more streamlined roof style which curves toward the ground the further back it goes.

With luggage racks on top, chrome grille and accents, halogen fog lamps, LED running lights and headlights, the 2019 Ford Expedition is a classy package with a more appealing exterior design.

Interior & Tech

The 2019 Ford Expedition is an award-winning design that features the most amount of room to date for a Ford SUV. Passengers who won’t have their viewing angle restricted by a high profile. The large windows offer a wide viewing angle for any seat location.

The interior of the 2019 Ford Expedition is remarkably roomy with three rows of seats for a total capacity of eight. There is also a panoramic vista roof with a two-panel opening that covers the front and second rows. This makes for an excellent open-air experience when traveling.

Safety

When it comes to safety, the 2019 Ford Expedition has scored five stars across the board from the NHTSA. The overall safety rating is five stars, the frontal crash rating is five stars, and the side crash rating is five stars. The 2019 Ford Expedition is also equipped with anti-lock brakes that automatically determine when a tire locks up and adjusts the brake pressure accordingly.
