With the infant seat behind me, I couldn't scoot my seat back any farther, so plan accordingly.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) hasn't rated the 2014 Ford Expedition for safety, but it has earned decent ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It gets four stars out of five overall, with four-star ratings for frontal crash and rollover for both the standard and extended-wheelbase models--though the rear-wheel-drive extended model alone gets just three stars for rollover. All models get five stars from the NHTSA for side crash safety.

In addition to all the requisites, Ford fits the Expedition with standard side-impact airbags, and the Expedition's curtain airbags extend protection to all three rows of seats. The Expedition also includes Trailer Sway Control as a standard feature; it works with the stability control system and takes extra measures—such as applying precise braking and reducing engine torque—to bring both vehicle and trailer under control.

Ford has moved the mechanism for the power tailgate away from the ceiling, eliminating the hump that you get in some models. But there's an option for a backup camera, and we strongly recommend it due to the Expedition's poor rear visibility. Ford's programmable MyKey system allows parents to program a speed limiter, speed alert chimes, and additional belt reminders.

Conclusion

There haven't been recent crash tests conducted on the Expedition, but with more active-safety features, it should be better at avoiding them altogether.

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.
