Expert Quotes:

for such a brute, this is an amazingly well-behaved over-the-road ride
AutoWeek

ease of usability and comfortable demeanor
Edmunds

high step-in will likely be an obstacle for smaller occupants, though available power running boards compensate some
Consumer Guide

felt very stable around town and on the highway, though it sometimes was a bit unsettled when making a quick lane change

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.

Conclusion

The 2011 Ford Expedition has a spacious passenger-friendly interior; it also rides better than most trucks.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
