2010 Ford Expedition review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
The Ford Expedition is a truck-based full-size SUV that can carry up to eight people. The SUV comes in XLT, Eddie Bauer, Limited and King Ranch trim levels. It competes with the Chevrolet Tahoe, Toyota Sequoia and Dodge Durango. There’s a longer version available, called the Expedition EL. It’s about 15 inches longer and has a standard third row of seats. It competes with the Chevrolet Suburban.

New for 2010
For 2010, the Expedition receives trailer-sway control standard, to help prevent trailer sway during towing.

Exterior
The front features a squared-off four-bar grille and angular headlights, and the rear window can open independent of the liftgate. Regular- and extended-length Expeditions sport the same exterior styling.

  • Standard capless fueling system
  • Standard fog lamps
  • Standard exterior keypad system
  • Standard power, heated mirrors
  • Standard 17-inch wheels
  • Optional rain-sensing wipers
  • Optional power moonroof
  • Optional power running boards
  • Optional 18- or 20-inch wheels
  • Optional power liftgate

Interior
The Expedition can seat up to nine occupants across three rows of seats. The steering wheel, gauge clusters and climate controls are similar to those in Ford’s F-150 pickup truck. Thanks to an independent rear suspension, the third-row seat folds flat into the floor — a feature not offered in all competitors. A power-folding mechanism for the third-row seat is optional on lower trims and standard on higher ones.

  • Standard auto-dimming rearview mirror
  • Standard power locks and windows
  • Standard leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Optional Sync multimedia system
  • Optional heated and cooled front seats
  • Optional power-folding third row
  • Optional navigation system
  • Optional DVD entertainment system

Under the Hood
When properly equipped, the Expedition can tow up to 9,200 pounds. Unlike the Tahoe and Suburban, the Expedition comes only as a half-ton truck. The sole powertrain is now a flex-fuel engine that can run on E85.

  • Standard 310-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8 with 365 pounds-feet of torque
  • Standard six-speed automatic transmission
  • Optional part-time four-wheel drive
  • Optional load-leveling air suspension

Safety
The Expedition has not been crash-tested by our preferred source, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It scores five stars in government front-crash tests, which is the highest rating possible. A new trailer-sway control feature is standard and works in conjunction with the electronic stability system to detect trailer movement and apply braking, as well as reduce engine torque to keep the vehicle in control. A standard MyKey system allows parents to impose vehicle restrictions on teen drivers. Parents can limit the vehicle’s top speed, add a persistent seat-belt reminder, limit the volume on the stereo to 44 percent of its maximum volume, and have a speed chime activate at 45, 55 or 65 mph.

  • Standard front-seat side-impact airbags
  • Standard MyKey
  • Standard side curtain airbags
  • Standard electronic stability system with anti-rollover technology
  • Standard four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Standard SOS Post-Crash Alert System
  • Standard trailer-sway control
  • Optional rearview camera
