Expert Quotes:

EL Expeditions have an additional 24 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, including a highly functional cargo divider/storage shelf that folds into the floor.

The tri-zone HVAC kept each area of the vehicle comfortable

Opting for the nav system also gets you Sirius Travel Link, which provides traffic conditions, weather forecasts, sports scores, movie listings and local fuel prices.
Edmunds

A useful option is an automatic rear load-leveling air-suspension system.
Four Wheeler


With four trim levels offered in either the standard edition or in the long-wheelbase EL, the 2012 Ford Expedition still reaches out to pure utility buyers, while giving fans of tech and leather some interesting lifestyle options.

The versions include the basic XL, a well-trimmed XLT edition, the luxe Limited, and our favorite, the King Ranch.  All versions come with keyless entry; heated power mirrors; air conditioning; an electrochromic rearview mirror; an AM/FM/CD player; and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. SYNC, Ford's Bluetooth-driven voice controller for communications and entertainment systems, is standard on XLT, Limited, and King Ranch Expeditions. The latter get their own marvelous untreated leather interior: it looks and feels and even smells like a baseball mitt, and requires upkeep, showing the warts and scuffs accumulated through the miles.

Ford offers some of its advanced tech features on the Expedition. There's 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 an iPod jack. The nav system is paired 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.

Conclusion

Tech features abound in the 2012 Ford Expedition, with only one or two omissions on the options list.

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.
