Review: 2013 Ford Expedition

The 2013 Ford Expedition remains one of the best vehicles for hauling a boat, hauling large cargo or hauling your kids around town.

The 2013 Expedition is one of the last vehicles to carry the traditional four-bar designed grille and has the classic Ford look. The Expedition has always been the top choice for those seeking a lot of space. You can fit up to 8 people on the inside, but when cargo needs are greater than people needs, simply fold down the seats. Then the Expedition becomes a makeshift moving van with up to 108.3 cubic feet on the Expedition and 130.8 on the Expedition Extended Length.


If you’re driving the boat up to Lake Erie, the Expedition is your top choice. Ford has made it even easier thanks to the new trailer brake controller that helps enhance braking performance. The brake balances the performance of the vehicle brakes and your electric trailer brakes.

The Expedition has up to 9,200-lbs towing capacity when properly equipped with a Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package. Your Trailer Sway Control works with AdvanceTrac with RSC to help both your vehicle and your trailer under control, and Independent rear suspension will allow each wheel to respond independently to rough or uneven surfaces for a smooth and controlled ride.

The Heavy-Duty Towing Package features a Class IV trailer hitch receiver, a wiring harness with 4 and 7 pin connectors, heavy-duty auxiliary transmission oil cooler, heavy duty radiator, electronic braking with a wiring kit and integrated trailer brake control.

“The 2013 Ford Expedition still meets the requirements for shoppers needing a vehicle with significant passenger, cargo and towing capacities.”

Pros: Roomy third-row seat; easy-to-fold rear seats increase interior flexibility; more towing ability than similarly spacious crossovers.


“Cruises over hill and dale, around curves, into and out of driveways and parking spaces with the ease of a much smaller vehicle.”

“A significant contributor to the Expedition’s confidence-inspiring ways is its steering system, which allows the SUV to maneuver through parking garages and mall parking lots with relative ease.”
