2021 Ford Expedition Max review: Our expert's take
What Is the 2021 Ford Expedition?
Offered in regular- and extended-length Max form, the Ford Expedition full-size SUV seats five people in two rows or up to eight people in three rows. It’s 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 2021 Ford Expedition?
A new two-row XL trim level is now the base model, and a new STX Package features a five-bar grille, tri-zone automatic air conditioning and an 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Should I Buy the 2021 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, too. It can get pricey and towing disproportionately drags down fuel economy, but the Expedition is an impressive full-size SUV overall.
