Five reasons why the Ford Expedition is perfect for exploring the outdoors

As we begin the slow transition into summer, there’s no better time than now to pile family and friends into an SUV for a camping trip to create lasting memories and connect with nature – and the Ford Expedition may be the best vehicle to do it in.

Here are five reasons why:

Spacious Interior

Whether you’re carrying lots of passengers, cargo, or both, the Ford Expedition offers ample room – a crucial factor ahead of any camping trip. With seating for up to eight passengers and up to 3.4 cubic meters of cargo space with the second and third rows folded down, there’s plenty of room for camping gear and supplies – tents, barbecue grills, drinks coolers, sleeping bags, and much more.

To keep driver and passengers refreshed on the road, a large center console fridge can stock plenty of water and juices.

Robust Off-Roading

The Timberline is the most off-road-ready trim of the Ford Expedition yet. A High-Output 3.5L V6 engine delivers a best-in-class 440hp and 691 Nm of torque, while segment-first Trail Turn Assist allows tight pivots on low-friction surfaces, including sand dunes, so you can reach even the remotest sites to set up camp. Standard Trail Control operates like a low-speed cruise control, allowing you to focus on obstacles in the terrain, and an upgraded modified ‘rough road’ suspension with a wider wheel track providing more stability. Even the standard Expedition 4×4 comes with an electronic limited slip differential, Sand driving mode and an off-road front bumper for improved approach angle.

The Timberline’s off-roading prowess is accentuated by features it shares with Ford’s Raptor family – namely, their engine, distinctive front bumper, and skid plates.

Best-In-Class Fuel Economy

Compared to the typical V8 engine of its class, Expedition has a smaller displacement, lightweight, aluminium Twin-Turbo EcoBoost engine, standard 10-speed Automatic Transmission and Auto-Start Stop, all combining to give better acceleration and reduced fuel consumption.

Port Fuel Direct Injection improves power output, efficiency, and emissions – long road trips don’t need to be as expensive to fuel as you think.

Advanced User Experience Technology

The Ford Expedition features a 12″ or best-in-class 15.5″ touchscreen for easy navigation and smartphone integration, and an available best-in-class B&O® Unleashed 22-Speaker Sound System delivers a whopping 1,080 watts of power, ensuring all passengers are in for a fun road trip.

Meanwhile, the SYNC 4 system integrates smartphones into the Expedition experience, making it simple to play music, navigate apps, and control your device through either voice or touch.

Once you’ve arrived at your campsite, the Timberline’s Zone Lighting sets the perfect scene to relax.

Safety Feature Suite

Wherever you’re going, Expedition will get you there safely. This SUV boasts more advanced safety features than any competitor – including Pre-Collision Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Assist, and Lane Centering Assist – ranking it among the safest SUVs in the Middle East.

The safety features are specialized for off-road routes too, with front-view and object-detection cameras on the lookout for obstacles.

Whether you’re looking for a standout SUV that rules the highway or desert, the Ford Expedition offers enough variety of options to keep you covered, whatever adventure you’re about to embark on. The Ford Expedition is available for sale in most Ford showrooms across the Middle East.
