2019 Ford Expedition review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Ford Expedition?

The Ford Expedition full-size SUV was redesigned last year. Offered in regular- and extended-length Max form, the Expedition seats up to eight people in three rows. The Expedition is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine that makes 375 or 400 horsepower, depending on the trim level. The V-6 teams with a 10-speed automatic transmission, and rear- and four-wheel-drive models are offered. Competitors include the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada.

What’s New on the 2019 Ford Expedition?

The dual-zone automatic air conditioning is now tri-zone automatic air conditioning. There’s also a new Stealth Edition Package that adds an assortment of gloss black exterior accents as well as a Texas Edition Package.

What Features in the 2019 Ford Expedition Are Most Important?

While seating for eight is standard, the Expedition offers second-row bucket seats that reduce seating capacity to seven but make it easier to access the third row. A power-folding third-row seat is standard. When equipped with four-wheel drive, there’s a Terrain Management System and hill descent control. Ford’s Pro Trailer Backup Assist aims to make reversing with a trailer less of a white-knuckled task.

Ford's Sync 3 multimedia system is standard and features an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Available convenience features include a hands-free foot-activated liftgate, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, 4G LTE connectivity with a Wi-Fi hot spot, leather upholstery, a panoramic moonroof and wireless device charging.

Available active safety features include adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, lane-keeping assist, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and forward collision warning. Inflatable second-row seat belts are also available.

Should I Buy the 2019 Ford Expedition?

The big Expedition has plenty of capability — it'll tow up to 9,300 pounds when properly equipped — and it offers lots of tech features. The Expedition is roomy, rides well and has a powerful drivetrain. It's pricey and towing disproportionately drags down fuel economy, but the Expedition is an impressive full-size SUV overall. It also won our 2018 Full-Size SUV Challenge.

Very disappointed!!!

Front shocks went out in 3000 miles. Maps are more than 5 years old when we purchased the car. Sends you everyway except the most direct only to find out your destination hasn't been there for more than 5 years. Gave it an address and it took me 22 miles out of the way almost didn't make my appointment. Standard setting for shifting is very sloppy, does not shift smoothly, pauses between gears upshifting and often bangs as the transmission downshifts when coming to a stop. Zero help from dealership on the maps! Didn't even clean up the oil from the shocks so it continued to drip all over the garage floor after the shocks were replaced until I could pressure wash the undercarriage. Holding my breath until the transmission stops working. Less than 10,000 miles on the car.

4.6

It's another level of driving... so comfortable

There is not one thing I can think of that this car needs, but doesn't have. From the power, heated seats and steering wheels, to 36 degree camera system, it is really something to behold.
