1. Interior

With the 2019 Expedition, you’ll never run out of room for family and fun. This versatile SUV comfortably seats up to eight people and has a maximum cargo volume of 104.6 cubic feet. Boarding the Expedition and loading cargo is easier than ever thanks to available Tip and Slide bucket seats.

Front seat ventilation and heating are featured in both the driver’s seat and passenger seat to help relieve leg and lower back fatigue. The Expedition provides maximum shoulder and headroom for all passengers, from the driver to those sitting in the third row. 

Other interior features that the entire family will enjoy include cup holders and USB chargers on every row of seating. You’ll also love the fresh breezes and stunning views provided by the panoramic vista roof. Keep everybody’s favorite travel gear organized with the available advanced cargo manager. 

2. Technology

The 2019 Expedition features all of the latest technology to keep the entire family entertained. Its Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration allows you to make calls, send texts, access your favorite apps and navigation tools, and listen to your favorite music, all hands-free. Passengers can play DVDs, plug in their favorite gaming system, stream from their mobile devices, and even watch live TV with an available dual-headrest rear seat entertainment system. All of your entertainment choices will sound spectacular when played over the 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

While the Expedition’s technology entertains you, it will also help you reach your destination. An available GPS system features 3D mapping with voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions. Traffic updates, weather reports, gas station locations, and other relevant information is provided by an available SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link system.

3. Safety Features

The 2019 Expedition comes equipped with several safety and security features intended to keep your most precious cargo safe and to help make your drive a little less stressful. Brake assist, traction control, and a total of six occupant-sensing air bags all come standard. Remote keyless entry, a panic alarm, and rear child safety locks are also included to give you extra peace of mind. 

In the event that your tires become unsafe to drive on, you’ll receive an alert from the tire pressure monitoring system. The SOS post-crash alert system will alert drivers to the fact that your Expedition is disabled if you’re ever in an accident. If you opt for the advanced security package, your Expedition will be protected by a SecuriLock anti-theft system and intrusion sensors.

These are just some of the features that make the 2019 Ford Expedition a great choice for your next family vehicle. Consider a test drive to experience it for yourself.
