Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
