Ford Expedition Overview
Not only does the new Ford Expedition feature a spacious interior to comfortably transport passengers and store cargo, but it also boasts best-in-class towing with a maximum rated capacity of up to 9,200-lbs with the new Heavy-Duty Trailer Towing Package.
Did we mention the epic sound system courtesy of Bang & Olufsen? The 3.5-liter engine puts out 400 horsepower and a commanding 470 pounds per foot of torque, and if all that wasn’t enough, the new Ford Expedition features some of the most advanced automotive tech and safety systems in the world.
Let’s take a look at some of the best next-level features available in select Ford Expedition models this year.
Center Console Wireless Charging with Six USB Ports
The new Ford Expedition is equipped with everything you need to keep your devices charged up while you’re on the road. With six interior USB ports and a redesigned center console that boasts wireless charging capability for compatible devices, you’ll never have to worry about your device powering off while you’re in the 2021 Ford expedition.
Traffic and Navigation with SiriusXM
GPS navigation systems are one of the most loved features in modern vehicles. Being able to enter an address and get step-by-step directions makes navigating, exploring, and adventuring in the new Ford expedition a pleasure. Ford has teamed up with SiriusXM to offer premium navigation and satellite radio in select models this year.
The New FordPass Connect App
Ford’s game-changing new app FordPass connect allows you to perform many useful tasks from a beautiful, easy-to-use UI. From within the app, you can do things like start the vehicle, lock and unlock the doors, monitor your fuel levels, schedule regular maintenance, and more. When you register for the app, you can begin earning points that are redeemable for free maintenance at participating Ford service locations across the country, which is a nice added bonus that can save you some money over time.
Dual Headrest Rear-Seat Entertainment System
The dual-headrest entertainment system equipped in the Expedition ensures that your rear passengers will be entertained the whole way there. The system allows you to play DVDs, plug in a video game console such as a PS5 or Xbox Series X, which brings a whole new meaning to the term mobile gaming. Best of all, each of the two headrest entertainment screens can display media independently of each other, meaning that each passenger can do their own thing without there being any conflicts.
Available 12-Speaker Bang & Olufsen Sound System
Without a doubt, Bang and Olufsen make some of the highest quality automotive sound systems in the world, and the available 12 speaker setup in select new Ford Expedition models is no exception; in fact, it’s one of the best sound systems in any vehicle this year, so you’ll be able to listen to your favorite songs exactly how they were meant to be heard.
Integrated Mobile Wi-Fi Hotspot
An available Wi-Fi hotspot makes surfing the web from your new Ford Expedition easy. With mobile Wi-Fi, you’ll have a reliable signal well you’re on the road meaning that you’ll be able to take full advantage of everything the Internet has to offer, such as getting directions to restaurants or gas stations, streaming your favorite multimedia, messaging, and much more. Best of all, the mobile Wi-Fi hotspot works within a radius of 50 feet of the Expedition, which means no more paying for expensive optional Wi-Fi at campgrounds.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
Perhaps the best new safety feature on the market this year, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, is a game-changing system that’s been designed to save lives on the road. The system uses state-of-the-art technology systems to identify potential collisions before they occur.
If the system realizes that a collision could be imminent, it will alert you so that you can apply the brakes or steer out of the way to avoid the collision. Sometimes it may not be possible to avoid the crash; if you aren’t able to react on time to prevent the accident, the system can automatically apply the brakes in an effort to prevent the collision or minimize the damage.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go
Sitting in traffic just got a whole lot nicer thanks to Ford’s new adaptive cruise control system with Stop-and-go technology. The system uses onboard technology such as sensors and built-in cameras to scan the road ahead and detect traffic patterns.
The system can identify the speed of the vehicle in front of you and automatically keep pace with them from a safe following distance. Should the vehicle ahead suddenly slow down or stop, the new Ford expedition will follow suit, if they stop, so will you and when they start moving again, you’ll be back on your way, which means that traffic jams are now the perfect time to relax and take it easy.
