The 2011 Ford Expedition has just as roomy and comfortable of an interior as you might guess in gazing at its gigantic exterior. Comfy front captain's chairs are standard on all models, and thanks to a wide range of adjustability in the steering wheel and pedals, folks of widely varying sizes should have no problem. The second row has adequate headroom and legroom for taller adults, and most passengers will find the third row accommodating for short trips. Although entry to that third row is a bit difficult in the standard Expedition, it's much easier in the EL model thanks to the wider doors.
A PowerFold third-row seat is optional, allowing it to fold flat with the touch of a button, while a new, redesigned power liftgate is also available. Ford has moved the mechanism away from the ceiling, eliminating the hump that could obscure the driver's vision while backing up.
The ride of the Expedition is certainly no match for the newer generation of car-based crossovers, but it rides better than other body-on-frame trucks. The suspension does a splendid job of soaking up irregularities while keeping the back wheels glued to the road over rough surfaces, with none of the nervous hopping that characterizes solid-axle designs.
