What Is the 2020 Ford Expedition?
Offered in regular- and extended-length Max form, the Ford Expedition full-size SUV 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 2020 Ford Expedition?
Standard Ford Co-Pilot360 includes automatic high-beam headlights, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking. A 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot for up to 10 devices is also standard.
A new King Ranch trim level inspired by the famous Texas ranch includes gray exterior accents, power running boards, 22-inch aluminum wheels, King Ranch badges and Del Rio leather. Meanwhile, the high-end Platinum trim gets new 22-inch wheels and a leather-wrapped instrument panel hood.
What Features in the 2020 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. Available 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 power liftgate, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, a panoramic moonroof and wireless device charging. Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality is optional.
2020 Ford Expedition Vs. 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe: How Do They Compare?
Both SUVs have three rows of seats, but while the Expedition can seat up to eight, certain versions of the Tahoe have room for nine people. The Expedition’s maximum trailering capacity is a bit higher than the Tahoe’s, and the Expedition is the more practical of the two in everyday use, with more cargo room and a much more usable third-row seat. The Ford is also better to drive, though it’s possible that the redesigned 2021 Tahoe could close the gap.
Should I Buy the 2020 Ford Expedition?
The Expedition has plenty of capability — it’ll tow up to 9,300 pounds when properly equipped — and it offers lots of tech features. It’s 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.
