See Why the 2020 Ford Expedition Was Built for Families
When it comes to transporting heavy trailers and accommodating large families, there are very few vehicles aside from the Ford Expedition that can stand up to the task. The newest rendition of the Expedition, the 2020 model, maintains its family-oriented style but adds in a number of new features that are worthy of getting excited over.
One of the newest family-friendly features that the 2020 Expedition offers is its spacious interior. Not only is the interior designed to appeal, but it’s also ideal for large families and carpooling, as it offers two rows of back seats in addition to the front row. The third-row seats are power-controlled, while both the second and third rows have the ability to fold flat in order to accommodate a large load of cargo (camping supplies, anyone?).
For long trips, the Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum trims offer something special – a rear-seat dual-headrest entertainment system. This high-tech system enables back-seat riders to view their home cable programming, play DVDs, plug in a gaming system, stream from a mobile device, and even watch live TV via Slingbox. Each of the rear-facing screens is high-quality and provides a crystal-clear picture for the ultimate video experience.
Plenty of Charging Ports
Sticking with the technological side of things, another handy feature the whole family can enjoy is the Expedition’s six USB ports and center console charger. The USB ports are distributed throughout the vehicle, with a few in the back and the rest in the front to give access to power to passengers in any area of the vehicle. The USB ports give off enough power to charge multiple smartphones and handheld devices, to charge a small laptop, or to run a USB plug-in video player or stereo.
The safety features of the Expedition make it a wise choice for any family who prioritizes safety. In case of an unforeseen emergency, the pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection feature is designed to provide the driver with a collision warning and will apply the brakes automatically if the driver doesn’t respond quickly enough. It also makes use of Ford’s Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), which alerts the driver to other vehicles in his or her blind spot, and adaptive cruise control, which sets and maintains a safe following distance from the vehicle in front of the Expedition.
Last but not least on our summary of the best family-friendly features is the Expedition’s warranty. The warranty beats the warranties of other leading brands, including Mercedes-Benz, which is known for its great warranty. The limited warranty covers 36,000 miles, while the powertrain warranty covers up to five years or 60,000 miles.
Overall, the new and improved line of 2020 Expeditions is well worth a test drive. Equipped with a whole host of features, the classic Ford style, and plenty of room for families to travel and grow, the Expedition is one of the most anticipated vehicles to be released this year.
