If you’re looking for a capable and comfortable SUV, look no further than the 2013 Ford Expedition. This full-size SUV is one of the remaining few still capable of seating eight, all in plush accommodations.
Ford has kept the Expedition truck-like, making it an excellent choice for families who need towing capabilities. It is powered by a 310-horsepower 5.4-liter V8 engine. The 365 pound-feet of torque allow the 2013 Ford Expedition to keep up with traffic, even while hauling a heavy load. The V8 engine is paired with a six-speed transmission and all-wheel drive for great performance. Its maximum towing capacity is an astonishing 9,200 pounds. Although some might worry its size will make for a difficult drive, the 2013 Ford Expedition’s precise steering and well-made suspension make it easy to control.
For any large vehicle designed for families, safety is an important issue. That’s why Ford gave it top-notch safety gear, like side curtain airbags to protect all three rows of seating. The 2013 Ford Expedition also includes Trailer Sway Control as a standard feature. This system works with the stability control system and takes extra measures, applying precise braking and reducing engine torque, to bring both the vehicle and trailer under control. A backup camera is optional to improve visibility.
Ford offers this vehicle in six spacious trims, the base XLT, XLT EL, Limited, King Ranch, Limited EL, and superior King Ranch EL. All models offer drivers a smooth ride and plethora of features, both standard and available as add-ons.
