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.

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

The feature set in the 2013 Ford Expedition is a little behind the times as well; it lacks Ford's innovative (and sometimes frustrating) MyFord Touch connectivity interface, instead offering the more dated Sync system, combined with a voice-activated navigation system and HD Radio in top trims.

That's about the only letdown in a lineup that includes XL, XLT, Limited, and King Ranch trims—and many more equipment groups and option packages. Across the entire range, standard equipment includes keyless entry keypad, heated power mirrors, air conditioning, an electrochromic rearview mirror, illuminated visors, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Our favorite, if you have a generous budget, remains the King Ranch, which gets its 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.

Standout options include Ford's MyKey system and SecuriCode keypad-entry system. This year Ford has added a new dual-head-restraint DVD system, and a new 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheel design.

The optional voice-activated navigation—with a 6.5-inch color touchscreen—isn't bad; it's just an older unit, and DVD-based. But it does include a nice-sounding 340-watt AM/FM stereo with MP3 playback, six speakers, a subwoofer, and an iPod jack.

Conclusion

A long list of features, options, and special models like the King Ranch let you choose exactly what fits your lifestyle—although cutting-edge infotainment and connectivity are missing.

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.
