The 2021 Ford Expedition takes the 20th-century idea of a full-size American SUV and brings it to the modern world. Its power, style and cargo space give the 2021 Ford Expedition swagger and an imposing presence on and off the road. The aluminum body panels, a fuel-efficient turbocharged engine and a sophisticated independent rear suspension ensure that the one and only Ford Expedition is Built Ford Proud. This model year offers best-in-class towing of 9,300 lbs. when equipped with the available Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package. The 2021 Expedition features the legendary King Ranch® trim, as well as the attention-grabbing Stealth Edition, Texas Edition and available FX4 Off-Road Package. The team at Ziems Ford Corners says it’s an SUV designed to handle everything the Farmington and Four Corners area has to offer.
The 2021 Ford Expedition drives with uncommon refinement and gives you plenty of standard and special features to keep you covered from the driveway to the highway. Choose from options like Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking or BLIS with Cross Traffic Alert. You can also opt for the Lane Keeping System or Pedestrian Detection to ease your mind while driving. In an increasingly and stressful world, we can all use a little more confidence on the road.
The Expedition has room for eight with plenty of space for all, and no shortage of features. Second-row passengers enjoy comfortable seats with plenty of space for adjustment and up to 42.6 inches of legroom. The Expedition XL trim level offers a third row of power-folding/reclining seats that also have spacious quarters. There is ample cargo space with a standard 20.9 cubic feet, expanding to 104.6 behind the front seats. The Expedition Max has 34.3 cubic feet swelling to 121.4 cubic feet with the second and third seating rows folded down.
The first option to consider is all-wheel drive, which comes with a terrain management system. Others include features like leather upholstery, panoramic sunroof and heated/ventilated front seats. All those features are standard in the higher trims, but available as add-ons at lower levels. All-wheel-drive versions of the XLT and Limited are eligible for FX4 off-road packages. Limited is also offered with Texas and Stealth cosmetic packages. King Ranch has its own theme that includes a distinctive black/brown leather combination. Platinum models ramp up the luxury ambiance even more with retractable running boards and active noise cancellation. Additional extras include a dual-headrest rear-seat entertainment system and second-row captain’s chairs. The Heavy Duty Trailer Tow package is available at every trim level.
The 2021 Ford Expedition is propelled by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 generating 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. In Platinum and higher trim models, it’s tuned for 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque. Either way, that’s a lot of muscle that the Expedition makes good use of, thanks to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The basic setup is rear-wheel drive (RWD), with all-wheel drive (AWD) on the options list. This system comes with a terrain-response function to maximize traction on different surfaces and the option of a two-speed set up with an electronic locking differential.
The Bottom Line
The 2021 Expedition is big, powerful and capable offering an EPA-estimated rating of 17 city/24 highway/20 combined mpg. It’s the perfect SUV to travel through the New Mexico terrain. Whether it’s city living or dirt road adventures, the Expedition can handle it all. Schedule your test drive today at Ziems Ford Corners. We’d love to be a part of your car-buying journey!
