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