Getting the most out of your vehicle is important to vehicle buyers, and there are few vehicles on the market more versatile than the 2016 Ford Expedition. Combining power and plenty of seating with technology and comfort, it is a solid package that has becoming the top full-size SUV on the market. The four-door Expedition is available in three trims: XLT, Limited, and Platinum.
Simple And Versatile
Available in both the standard size and the Expedition MAX, which is 376 millimeters longer, the 2016 Ford Expedition is slab-sided, foregoing curves for maximizing its footprint. From the front, the Expedition is minimalist and attractive, with a front fascia that features a simple grille with horizontal bars and a large bottom grille. Chrome door handles highlight the sides, while chrome mirrors and polished-steel or body-colour power-deployable running boards are available on some trims, to add some flash to your ride. All side mirrors are heated for better cold-weather visibility. A roof rack is standard equipment for tying down large cargo like kayaks, skis, bicycles, tents, and anything else that won’t fit inside. An optional power liftgate makes cargo loading and unloading easier. The Platinum edition receives unique features that set it apart, including 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, satin-finished highlights on the liftgate and grille and PLATINUM badging.
Inside the 2016 Ford Expedition, there is an immense amount of space. There is seating for up to eight, dependent on the configuration – choosing bucket seats in the second row opens up the interior a bit but reduces the seating to seven. Cloth upholstery is the standard, with leather being available. Soft-touch plastics and metal trim surround the driver and passengers, while woodgrain accents are optional. The Platinum trim receives special-edition seating along with unique trim and nameplates throughout the interior. In the first two rows, there is an exceptional amount of both leg and headroom, while the third row shrinks slightly but still provides ample space. Cargo space is very generous behind the 3rd row in the standard-length Expedition and even more so in the MAX version. The Ford SYNC enhanced voice recognition communications and entertainment system operates through a 4.2-inch colour LCD system in the center stack, and controls infotainment systems through voice controls, so you can keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. This can be upgraded to the SYNC 3 system, which features an 8-inch LCD touchscreen, an upgraded stereo system, and an extra smart-charging USB port. Navigation is also available for folks who need a hand getting around. To keep backseat passengers entertained on long-distance trips, a dual headrest DVD entertainment system is available.
There is a single powertrain set-up for the 2016 Ford Expedition, but that’s all it needs – the combination of engine, six-speed transmission and full-time Control Trac 4-Wheel Drive is potent and capable. The Expedition can tow up to 4,173 kilograms, and has off-road capabilities.
