2012 ford expedition review this car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.

That's nice on long drives.

Extended-length expedition el models add more cargo-carrying capacity, especially noticeable when trying to load groceries or gear behind the third-row seats. expedition is powered by a single-overhead-cam 5. 4-liter v8 rated at 310 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque.

A rear obstacle detection system is standard on xlt, limited, and king ranch. Forward-pointing parking sensors are standard on limited and king ranch. walkaroundthe ford expedition is a truck and it doesn't pretend to be anything else. This is a good identity to have, because ford trucks continue to have an outstanding reputation for utility, reliability and durability. both the long and regular-length versions of the expedition use many of the components from the ford f-150 pickup. However, the expedition features independent rear suspension, which improves driving precision, ride comfort, and rear-seat roominess. expedition features a three-bar grille, large headlights, and a domed hood that combine to deliver a look that's both distinctive and respectable. There are several different wheel designs, including 20-inchers with a polished (limited) or painted (king ranch) finish. expedition rides on a wheelbase of 119. 0 inches, while the expedition el models stretch that to 131. 0 inches. Overall, the el measures 14. 8 inches longer than the standard expedition, and that adds slightly over 22 cubic feet of cargo volume, from 108. 3 cubic feet for the expedition to 130. 8 for the el. the expedition and the expedition el are big vehicles, measuring more than 17 feet from nose to tail. As a result, crowded parking lots can be challenging. The expedition has a turning circle of nearly 41 feet, while the el requires nearly 44 feet. they're also heavy, as even the base 2wd expedition weighs over 5,500 pounds, and a loaded el with 4wd tops 6,200. the king ranch model can be identified by its gold exterior accents and unique wheel design. the expedition comes with running boards as standard equipment. Power retractable running boards that deploy when the doors are opened are optional. Some owners prefer no running boards, but that doesn't appear to be an option. interiorthe ford expedition features a rich blend of finishes, textures and color. Wood, chrome and leather make the expedition an inviting place to spend a day on the road. Leather-upholstered examples are available with a heating/cooling feature that makes them a more comfortable companion in winter and summer. Generous driver's-seat travel helps accommodate taller drivers, and it's a perfect match for the expedition's movable pedals, so a wide range of sizes of drivers can sit comfortably. the second seating row reflects ford's thoughtful approach to passenger comfort: the standard 40/20/40 bench seat incorporates a center section that slides, bringing a child seat within easier reach of front-seat passengers. Optional second-row captain's chairs with a center-aisle pass-through can be substituted for adult-rated comfort. packaging advantages afforded by the expedition's independent rear suspension enable the third-row seat to deliver more comfort for adults compared to the accommodations provided by the chevy tahoe. In fact, third-row room is among the best of any suv, though three adults won't want to sit in the back for long. The high ride height also makes getting in and out a task for children. the liftgate with its flip-up glass hatch makes access to the cargo area very easy. The second- and third-row bench-type seats fold flat into the cargo floor, affording a long cargo area that can be easily loaded. In this regard, the expedition is much better designed than gm's large suvs. The expedition is also available with an optional power-folding third-row seat and electronically powered liftgate to make it even easier to load cargo. However, the seat cushions of the second- and third-row seats are a little slim in order to allow the seats to fold properly. the expedition is about more than convenience. A dvd-based navigation system with sizable 6. 5-inch screen is available as an option. The rear-seat dvd entertainment system has an eight-inch screen that flips down from the headliner and also includes two sets of wireless headphones. A plug-in jack for an mp3 player is standard across the line. The expedition is even a nice place to be when all the entertainment is switched off, as the combination of thick glass and a generous amount of a.
