2019 Ford Expedition is a good looking SUV
The all-new 2019 Ford Expedition looks more similar to the lineup of the company’s SUVs than the F-150 pickup. Of course, Expedition is based on that pickup and there are some cues that are almost or completely the same. However, headlights, taillights and the overall profile is more SUV than anything else. All those features look bigger than on Ford Explorer, but we don’t see it as a bad thing, far from that.
The expedition is a good looking SUV with the perfect combination of sophistication and sharpness. This powerful SUV can accumulate comfortably up to eight passengers. Platinum trim is full of chrome materials but comes with still plenty of sheet metal. The Expedition is also using aluminum in its construction, and 300 pounds are saved as a result.
2019 Ford Expedition Interior with Premium Look
At first look, the cabin looks like in almost any other Ford’s model. However, even that the layout is easy to recognize, there is a small twist. Some controls for temperature, volume, drive-mode selector are looking knurled which gives the premium look to the interior. The gear selector also comes with a knurled surface, it feels good when you hold it and it is easy to use as well.
There is no lack of features, especially on higher trim models like Platinum. The 3rd row offers plenty of legroom, the Max model offers even more. Same stands for cargo room.
