DESIGN / HIGHLIGHTS
Technology that is so smart. So easy to use. From alerting you to vehicles in your blind spot to simply pushing a button to open the liftgate and fold flat the third-row seats to entering and starting your vehicle without a key, these available technology features in Expedition help make things so easy.
Equipped for adventure. You want to tow a 9,200-lb. trailer?* Expedition can do it. Just as easily as it can accommodate eight passengers or provide added cargo space on demand. Expedition can also handle snow-covered or wet roads when equipped with the available Control Trac® Four-Wheel-Drive System. And to help handle uphills and downhills, hill start assist/Hill Descent Control™ provide enhanced assistance.
Mechanical Rear Load-Leveling Suspension:
Available rear mechanical load-leveling automatically levels the chassis when you’re carrying a heavy load, enhancing ride quality, handling and stability. Expedition is engineered with an independent multilink rear suspension that enables each wheel to negotiate bumps and jolts on its own terms. This suspension also helps provide best-in-class third-row leg room and allows the 60/40 seat to fold flat when you want to carry cargo.
Accenting the bold look of the Expedition are a host of standard and optional features that complement its look and leverage its utility, including:
• Available chrome exhaust tip and door handles
• Standard LED fog lamps
• Available halogen projector-beam headlamps
• Luggage rack side rails and crossbars
• Standard running boards, available power-deployable feature

22-Inch Polished Aluminum Wheels:
Stylish 22-inch polished aluminum wheels are available on 2016 Limited, King Ranch® and Platinum models equipped with the optional continuously controlled damping (CCD) suspension. The CCD suspension continuously monitors and adjusts the suspension to deliver one of three performance modes – comfort, normal or sport.
The Expedition offers an available power liftgate. A push of the button on your key fob or inside the cabin conveniently opens or closes it, letting you easily load groceries, luggage or anything else. If you need really quick access to the cargo area, you can manually open just the liftgate glass.
Ambient Lighting: LEDs light up the front and rear footwells, front center console bin and front two cupholders in your choice of seven colors – ICE BLUE®, Orange, Soft Blue, Red, Green, Blue and Purple. With two front bucket seats and two three-passenger rear bench seats, Expedition can comfortably seat eight. A seven-passenger configuration is another option with available second-row bucket seats.
Unique King Ranch® features include:
• Mesa Brown, perforated, 10-way power-adjustable leather-trimmed heated/cooled bucket seats with Kingsville piping and King Ranch® logo
• Leather-wrapped power tilt/telescoping steering wheel with Mesa Brown leather insert and audio controls
• Caribou-color bumpers, running boards, wheel-lip moldings, and lower fascia
• King Ranch®-embroidered floor mats
PowerFold® Third-Row Seat:
Featuring one-touch-up/-down functionality, the available PowerFold® third-row seat can be folded and stowed under the floor for additional cargo room.
9,200-Lb. Maximum Towing:
The standard 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine delivers 365 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, giving Expedition a maximum 9,200-lb. towing capacity when properly equipped. Standard trailer sway control works in conjunction with AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll StabilityControl™) to determine from the yaw motion of the vehicle if the trailer is swaying, and takes measures. These include applying precise vehicle braking or reducing engine torque to help bring both vehicle and trailer under control.
Accessed with controls on the steering wheel, the information is displayed in the gauge cluster. Input, track and save information about specific trailers and manage how you use them. A trailer name, its trailer brake control settings and mileage can all be stored. The off-road tools include displays of lateral, vertical and turning radius information and the 4x4 system along with traction control status.
Behind the third row, the 2016 Expedition has 18.6 cu. ft. of storage capacity. Need more room? Fold the third-row bench seat and you’ll have 55 cu. ft. behind the second row. For even more capacity, fold the second-row split bench seats for a total of 108.3 cu. ft. of room behind the first-row seats. And if that’s not enough, the 2016 Expedition EL has 130.8 cu. ft. of space behind the first row with the rear seats folded.* Behind the second row, the EL has 85.5 cu. ft. of cargo space – the most of any vehicle in its class.
Best-in-class standard engine torque: Featuring a standard 365-horsepower 3.5L EcoBoost® V6, Expedition delivers the power you need for accelerating, merging and towing a heavy load. When you’re carrying a heavy load, available rear mechanical load-leveling automatically levels the chassis. The available continuously controlled damping suspension allows you to dial in your preferred ride. Electric power-assisted steering continuously modifies steering feel to the driving situation. And to help keep you stay grounded, AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) and traction control are both standard.
Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD):
Expedition is the first Ford model to offer the available continuously controlled damping suspension. Choose from three settings – comfort, normal or sport. A suite of electronic sensors continuously monitors 46 unique suspension, steering, braking and body motions, processing data hundreds of times per second. The damping system responds in milliseconds to help keep you confidently in control.
Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS):
EPAS monitors driver input, vehicle speed and road conditions and continuously adapts to the driving situation. EPAS provides an easy, fluid feel of the wheel during low-speed maneuvers, and gradually becomes firmer as speed increases. And that’s not all. The system can offset pulling or drifting caused by steady crosswinds or crowned road surfaces and also damp wheel vibrations.
Rear View Camera:
Put the gear selector in Reverse and the rear view camera automatically transmits the image of what’s behind your vehicle when you’re slowly backing up.10 The large, bright, real-time visual is displayed on the standard 4.2-inch center display, or on the available eight-inch touch screen in vehicles equipped with available SYNC® 3.
Forward and Reverse Sensing Systems:
The available Forward and Reverse Sensing Systems use innovative ultrasonic sensors in the bumpers to audibly alert you to certain objects when you’re moving forward or backing up at slow speeds. The closer you get, the quicker it beeps.
Integrated Trailer Brake Controller (TBC):
Integrated with the anti-lock brakes and trailer sway control, the available integrated trailer brake controller (TBC)* synchronizes vehicle and trailer brakes for seamless braking, even when towing a large boat or trailer. And because it’s factory-installed and integrated into the instrument panel, there are no installation troubles or aftermarket worries. TBC features controls that are ideally sized, easy to use and well positioned just to the right of the steering wheel.
Traction Control and Stability Control:
Standard traction control reduces engine power or applies the brakes at the slipping wheel to limit wheelspin. Available Control Trac® 4-Wheel-Drive System helps provide more surefooted traction. Standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) uses two gyroscopic sensors to monitor both yaw and roll rates. This allows AdvanceTrac with RSC to help you maintain control whenever it detects wheelslip, understeer, oversteer or roll motion. It also helps maintain control in adverse road conditions such as ice, gravel or rain. Trailer sway control builds on the AdvanceTrac with RSC to help maintain trailer control.
Control Trac® 4-Wheel-Drive System:
Whether the driving surface is wet, snow-covered or icy, the available Control Trac® 4-Wheel-Drive System39 helps provide sure-footed traction. It divides engine torque from front to rear, operating in one of four driver-activated modes:
• 2H (4x2): Power is delivered to rear wheels only. For normal on-road, dry pavement driving.
• 4A (4x4 AUTO): In this mode, electronic control four-wheel-drive power is delivered to all four wheels, as required, for increased traction. For all on-road conditions, including dry road surfaces, wet pavement, snow or gravel.
• 4H (4x4): This setting provides electronically locked four-wheel drive to front and rear wheels. Intended only for severe winter or off-road conditions, such as deep snow, ice or shallow sand. Not recommended for use on dry pavement.
• 4L (4x4 LOW): When extra power at reduced speeds is required, this electronically locked four-wheel-drive mode should be used. Used for off-road, low-speed operation or when extra power is required in situations such as climbing steep grades, going through deep sand or pulling a boat out of water. Not recommended for use on dry pavement.
Keyless Entry with Push-Button Start:
Unlock and access your Expedition without a key. It really is that simple, thanks to the keyless entry with push-button start feature. This available technology makes it easier and faster to get inside, start the engine and get on the road. With the key fob in your pocket or handbag, the door unlocks when you touch the external driver’s-door keypad (SecuriCode™). Once inside, press the brake pedal and push the start-stop button to start the engine. After exiting the vehicle, you can lock the doors by simultaneously pressing the 7|8 and 9|0 buttons on the driver’s-door keypad.
BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert:
Available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert (CTA)10 helps make driving convenient. BLIS uses radar sensors in the rear quarter panels to help detect a vehicle in a blind spot. If a vehicle is detected, the system alerts you with a warning light in the appropriate sideview mirror. Cross-traffic alert (CTA) uses radar to detect vehicles approaching from the sides when you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or your driveway. When it detects vehicles approaching from up to 15 yards away it sends an audible warning and a visual display in the corresponding mirrors, and a signal to the message center.
Hill Start Assist/Hill Descent Control:
When you’re stopped on an incline, standard hill start assist automatically works with the anti-lock brakes to hold the Expedition in place for up to two seconds while you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator. Activate available Hill Descent Control™ and the braking system are automatically engaged as needed to keep you in control while descending steep grades.
