Expert Quotes:

for such a brute, this is an amazingly well-behaved over-the-road ride
AutoWeek

ease of usability and comfortable demeanor

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

In the 2013 Ford Expedition, you don't get the spacial disconnects—with interior space that's less than you'd expect from the outside—that were expected in many past body-on-frame SUVs. The interior of the Expedition is cavernous, almost like that of a full-size van.

The Expedition's front seats are captain's chairs, mounted high and affording a good view out, and a telescopic steering wheel and power-adjustable pedals allow for a vast range of body types (including smaller drivers). The expansive head and knee room continues in the second row of seats, and even adult passengers will find the third row spacious enough for short trips.

Both a well-designed power liftgate and the PowerFold third-row seat make living with such a large vehicle—and making the most of it—easier than you might think, especially again for smaller moms.

With the third-row seat raised, the standard Expedition has almost 20 cubic feet of cargo space available. And in EL models, there's 130.8 cubic feet of cargo space, including an additional 24 cubic feet behind the third-row seat.

Ride quality isn't up to the standards of modern crossovers, for the most part, but the Expedition does keep its composure on rougher surfaces, and it rides better than other body-on-frame trucks. If you can afford it, the King Ranch edition offers a unique spin on a luxury-SUV interior, with unpolished leather like that of a baseball glove.

The ride of the Expedition is certainly no match for the newer generation of car-based crossovers, but it rides better than other body-on-frame trucks. The suspension does a splendid job of soaking up irregularities while keeping the back wheels glued to the road over rough surfaces, with none of the nervous hopping that characterizes solid-axle designs.

 

Conclusion

The 2013 Expedition delivers the spacious interior that the mammoth exterior suggests, with good ride quality to boot.

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.
