2019 Ford Expedition Engine & Towing

While crossovers have become one of the most popular vehicle choices for Iowa families, true SUVs like the Ford Expedition have distinct advantages when it comes to power and towing. The body-on-frame construction of true SUVs allows for much higher towing capacity, as well as more rugged driving when it comes to getting to your camp.

The 2019 Expedition has a max towing capacity of 9,300 lbs, putting it in the same league as many full-size pickup trucks. And while the trade-off for the increased utility has normally come in the form of worse gas mileage, that's not the case with the 2019 Ford Expedition.

By employing a turbocharged 3.5l V6 rather than a V8, the Ford Expedition produces an impressive 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, while also getting 20 mpg combined. These are best-in-class numbers for a large, three-row SUV, and help make the 2019 Ford Expedition a better choice for families than ever before. And if you spring for the luxurious Expedition Platinum, power output is further increased to 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque from the same engine.

With its complete redesign of the Expedition last year, it's clear that Ford wanted to raise the bar when it comes to capability and efficiency, and it's clear they've done so with the 2019 Ford Expedition. The 2019 Expedition also offers a heavy duty tow package, and can be had in either RWD or 4x4, offering everything you need for towing, camping, and whatever life throws your way. This is especially when you choose the FX4 Off-Road package, which includes all-terrain tires, off-road shocks, low-range gearing, 3.73 limited-slip rear axle and skid plates. All Expedition models pair their engine to a 10-speed automatic that maximizes efficiency and low-range power.

The Expedition's Interior & Tech Features

The 2019 Ford Expedition is not only more powerful and capable than its crossover competitors, it also offers more standard equipment and a greater level of luxury. This combination of features help make the Expedition a perennial favorite among Ankeny, IA families who want a comfortable family vehicle that can do it all.

Even the base Expedition XLT comes extremely well-equipped, with 18-inch alloy wheels, running boards, roof rack rails, rear parking sensors, heated mirrors, power driver's seat, push-button ignition, leather-wrapped steering wheel, 8-inch touchscreen with Ford's Sync 3 interface, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio. The XLT's standard features offer a great combination of tech and luxury, and it can be further equipped with several options packages.

Moving up to the Limited and Platinum trims nets impressive luxury features like a B&O premium sound system, upgraded leather, heated rear seats, and more. The Platinum trim rivals many true luxury SUVs for features and comfort.
