Experts at TheCarConnection.com note that because of its large dimensions, the 2010 Ford Expedition offers ample interior space. Build quality and materials aren’t quite up to scratch against rival models, but the fact that you can easily fit nine adults inside more than makes up for this.

ConsumerGuide reports that the driver and front passenger gets "generous room on supportive seats." The 2010 Ford Expedition "can seat up to nine occupants across three rows of seats" when equipped with the optional front bench seat, says Cars.com, and it does so with plenty of comfort. Surprisingly, the third-row seats receive some of the highest praise in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, as ConsumerGuide claims "third-row accommodations are among the best of any SUV, with adult-sized headroom and legroom on a chair-height bench." Car and Driver adds "third-row seating space is generous, easily besting the GM offerings."

Cargo space in the rear and other interior storage also benefit from the overall size of the 2010 Ford Expedition, especially in the long-wheelbase EL models. ConsumerGuide praises the "available power-folding third row," which they say "saves awkward stretching," and they further note that "a large glovebox, roomy center console, and large door pockets provide abundant small-item storage." Cars.com says "the Expedition EL offers 131 cubic feet" of total cargo volume with all the rear seats folded, and the standard Ford Expedition's "maximum cargo capacity is 108.2 cubic feet." If this is still not enough storage space, Edmunds points out "opting for the second-row captain's chairs drops seating capacity to seven but earns a storage console between the seats."

Ford’s big SUV lineup boasts improved materials and build quality, but it still doesn’t match the quality of its rivals. If interior quality is a priority, the King Ranch edition will satisfy all but the most discerning of buyers. Kelley Blue Book appreciates the "softer cushions and upgraded materials" on the 2010 Ford Expedition, and Motor Trend reports that "every editor was impressed by the luxurious 'Chaparral' leather" and "the ultraquiet ambiance" of the King Ranch model. As for the regular models, ConsumerGuide is disappointed to find "a plethora of hard-plastic panels" that "cheapens Expedition's interior ambiance," and Edmunds points out "quite a few small, cheap feeling buttons that are hard to tell apart at a glance."

Edmunds finds that "despite some noticeable noise from the tires, the Expedition's cabin remains quiet enough to carry on a conversation." ConsumerGuide says the Ford Expedition is "impressively hushed," and "road noise over most surfaces is minimal."

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.
