2021 Ford Expedition: What’s New

This year, the Expedition hits showrooms with a few new features. The first is a brand-new base XL STX trim which comes with five seats.

Second, the XLT trim gets a new optional suite of advanced safety features in the form of the Ford Co-Pilot360™ Assist package. This adds some welcome safety and driver-assistance features to the table.

Engine Options

2021 Ford Expedition InteriorThe base Expedition gives you a turbocharged V6 that delivers 375 horsepower with 470 lb-ft of torque at most trims but bumps up to 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft with the Platinum Series.

It’s driven by a 10-speed automatic transmission and comes with rear-wheel drive with four-wheel drive available as an option.


The new Expedition is a full-size body-on-frame SUV that seats up to eight passengers. On every trim except for the base, you can opt for an extended Expedition MAX configuration which kicks up your maximum cargo space from 20.9 cubic feet behind the back row to 36 cubic feet, with a maximum overall cargo space of 121.5 cubic feet.

The Expedition can also tow a massive 9,300 pounds, so you can bring everything with you.

Trim Levels and Technology

The Ford Expedition comes in one of five trim levels: the new Base XL STX, the mid-range XLT, the feature-packed Limited, the luxurious King Ranch, and the range-topping Platinum. The base level gives you an integrated Wi-Fi hot spot and a basic infotainment system with a 4.2-inch screen as well as keyless entry and ignition. At the XLT level, you add the Ford SYNC® 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration, and voice commands.

The Limited steps this up to add power accessories and an upgraded Bang & Olufsen sound system. The King Ranch gives you power-fold captain’s chairs and LED headlights as well as a surround-view camera and parking assist functions. At the top of the line, you get power-fold second and third-row seats as well as active noise cancellation technology for the cabin.

These include adaptive cruise control, stop and go technology, front crash mitigation, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping, automatic braking, and blind-spot monitoring systems, all of which work together in the Ford Co-Pilot360™ package to provide an extra set of eyes to help keep you safe while you’re behind the wheel.
