Even if you don’t need to be able to carry eight people regularly or even occasionally, the 2023 Ford Expedition is a full-size SUV with an awful lot to offer. Whatever you need to do around Martinsville, Danville, Rocky Mount, or Greensboro, the Expedition can be configured to oblige. Although its shares plenty of the capability of the truck it shares a platform with, the Expedition is much more comfortable, spacious, flexible, and refined. The 2023 Expedition may not have a luxury badge, but it can undoubtedly rival genuine luxury models for style, comfort, and capability.
There are ten different versions of the 2023 Ford Expedition to choose from, but the choices are a little more straightforward than that might sound. That’s because the Expedition is available in standard and extended wheelbase (MAX) versions, so there are six actual trim levels, and four are available in standard and MAX variants.
The most affordable version of the 2023 Ford Expedition is the XL STX. After that, the trim levels go to the XLT, Timberline, Limited, King Ranch, and range-topping Premier. If you’d like the extra room offered by a long-wheelbase MAX version of the 2023 Expedition, you can have it in XLT, Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum grades.
A vehicle as substantial and capable as the 2023 Ford Expedition requires an appropriately potent engine, and the mighty Ford doesn’t disappoint. The standard powerplant is the sensational 3.5-liter V-6 that develops 380 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, which is pretty impressive as a starting point. And if you opt for a Platinum trim level, the engine develops 400 horsepower and 480 lb.-ft. if you ply it with premium fuel.
The most power you can have under the hood of your Expedition comes from a High-Output version of the 3.5-liter V-6 twin-turbo that puts 440 horsepower and a massive 510 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal. The High-Output engine is standard with the Timberline and available for the Limited trim. Rear-wheel drive is standard for all models apart from Timberline, but the 4X4 system that’s standard with that model is available as an option for all other models.
The 2023 Ford Expedition is far more than just a large SUV; it’s big in just about every way. The exterior and interior dimensions are extensive, especially the MAX variants. However, the Expedition is also big on style, comfort, space, and capability. As well as being able to accommodate up to eight people with plenty of room for cargo, the 2023 Expedition can also tow up to 9,300 pounds and is available with almost every feature you could ask for with an SUV in its class.
Every model boasts an impressive list of standard and available features, and the Timberline that sits in the middle of the range is likely to be a popular choice. As well as the most potent version of the twin-turbo engine and standard four-wheel-drive, the Expedition Timberline also comes with an electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD), a 2-speed transfer case, steel skid plates, and a Trail Turn Assist function that drags the inside rear wheel to reduce the turning circle in sandy or muddy conditions. Other off-road goodies include different bumpers, 33-inch all-terrain tires, new springs, and other suspension upgrades.
