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

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

The ginormous proportions don't lie: the 2012 Ford Expedition is one of the most spacious vehicles on sale in America, even bigger when you decide on the EL version.

As you can guess, the room inside the Expedition is expansive. It's also comfortable, too, since the seats show a little more attention to cushioning than the standard-issue benches in more basic transportation. Big, comfortable captain's chairs are standard in front on all Expeditions. They have a good range of adjustments, not only to the seat but also to the pedals and steering wheel, that means smaller adults shouldn't have much of a problem finding a comfortable driving position. Head and leg room are non-issues for even the tallest passengers we know.

Move into the second-row seat, and head and leg room are still big enough to accommodate taller adults. They'll even be able to climb into the third-row seat for short trips--though it'll be an easier task in the longer EL, with its wider rear doors, than in the standard Expedition.

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. Even with the third-row seat raised, the standard Expedition has almost 20 cubic feet of cargo space available.

 

Conclusion

As big as it seems, the 2012 Ford Expedition teems with adult-sized seating and cargo space.

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.
