The Expedition might share a lot with the F-150 pickup, but it's no utilitarian workhorse. Making life easier is a generous equipment list that includes an optional DVD-based navigation with a 6.5-inch color touchscreen and voice activation, as well as a 340-watt AM/FM stereo with MP3 playback, six speakers, a subwoofer, and a standard iPod jack. A keyless entry keypad, heated power mirrors, air conditioning, an electrochromic rearview mirror, illuminated visors, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are all standard across the Expedition range.
Also available is Ford's MyKey system, which allows parents to program a speed limiter, speed alert chimes, and additional belt reminders. A voice-activated navigation system with Sirius Travel Link is also offered, providing access to up-to-the-minute information and entertainment content such as traffic and weather updates; and the new SYNC Traffic, Directions & Information system allows even those without the nav system to use a Bluetooth-compatible phone to get directions.
