Powered by the EcoBoost turbo V6 engine, the 2021 Ford Expedition SUV offers some of the highest towing, horsepower and torque ratings in its class. From the Rotary Gear Shift Dial to the Cargo Management System, this powerful model also has lots of convenient features inside the luxurious cabin.
Available in nine trims, the 2021 Ford Expedition welcomes seven or eight individuals for a premium ride. Models that carry the MAX label offer extra cargo space and legroom. Having three rows, this spacious SUV offers a rear-wheel drive or signature 4WD system with multiple modes.
The 2021 Expedition runs on the 3.5 L EcoBoost engine, which has a classic V6 layout for optimum output. When working at 5,000 RPM, the turbocharged powertrain generates 375 horsepower. At a tachometer reading of 2,250 RPM, the six-cylinder engine delivers 470 pound-feet of torque. When installed under the hood of the Platinum trim, the EcoBoost powertrain increases the output by 25 hp and 10 lb-ft of torque. Such an improvement is possible because of the twin turbochargers that utilize an air-to-air cooling mechanism.
This full-size Ford SUV offers a heavy-duty radiator to quickly dissipate heat from combustion and other processes under the hood. Providing 10 fixed shifting points, the SelectShift automatic transmission system drives this large family vehicle. This patented gearbox is fine-tuned to work with a 4x4 drive system, which has a transfer case with two preset operating speeds. The Neutral Towing function is another innovative feature of the updated drivetrain. When running on a 4x2 drive, the 2021 Expedition has a class-leading towing rating of 9,300 pounds.
Designed to work with the 4x4 drive, the Hill Descent Control prevents this Ford model from accelerating on a downward slope. Climbing a steep slope shouldn't be a major problem because of the Hill Start Assist, which keeps the braking system engaged for up to 2 extra seconds after the driver's foot is removed from the brake pedal. The Roll Stability Control is another feature that improves performance on sloped roads. Carrying the AdvanceTrac label, the RSC includes multiple gyroscopes that monitor the vehicle's balance in real time.
Available on the 2021 Expedition, the Intelligent 4WD system is highly recommended for drivers who love to take off-road trips. Up to seven unique driving modes are included in the Terrain Management System, such as the Tow/Haul and Mud/Ruts settings. A single mode also improves traction on grass, gravel or snow. This full-size Ford SUV has an exclusive suspension system with the all-new Continuously Controlled Damping design.
Creating a rear axle ratio of 3.73, the Electronic Limited-Slip Differential comes with the ControlTrac technology for optimum handling on rugged trails. When rolling on a 4x2 drive, the 2021 Expedition's rear axle attains a maximum ratio of 3.15. Controlled by a switch in the instrument panel, the Integrated Trailer Brake Controller is an advanced hardware that engages the vehicle's brakes and steering system. With extra support from the Trailer Sway Control, the driver can confidently change lanes while towing a trailer that's packed to capacity.
The 2021 Expedition attains a fuel economy of up to 23 MPG on the highway when rolling on a 4x2 drive. In the city, such a driveline configuration yields a maximum of 17 MPG. Gas mileage ratings for models that run on the Intelligent 4WD system include 22 MPG on the highway and 17 MPG in the city. For its powerful design, the EcoBoost V6 engine is quite efficient because of the Auto Start-Stop design.
Up to 104.6 cubic feet of cargo volume is available behind the 2021 Expedition's front seats. The MAX models offer an additional 20 cubic feet of cargo storage capacity. Families can optimize the interior storage space by using the Cargo Management System, which is ideal for luggage and large bags.

The captain's chairs in the 2021 Expedition's first row have the Active Motion design to reduce stress on the entire body.
