Trims, Powertrain, and Configurations

The 2023 Expedition comes in six trim levels: XL STX, XLT, Timberline, Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum. All versions are moved by a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6, but the engine output varies by trim. The XL STX and XLT make 380 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, while the Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum put out 400 horsepower and 480 lb.-ft. of torque. Exclusive to the Timberline and Limited with the optional Stealth Performance Package is a high-output version of the engine, making 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft of torque.

Every Expedition has a ten-speed automatic transmission managing the standard rear-wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive. The towing capability maxes out at 6,300 pounds, or 9,200 pounds with the optional Heavy-Duty Trailer Towing Package. Ford offers the Expedition in two lengths, regular or the longer MAX (available for the XLT, Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum). A regular-length Expedition has a 122.5-inch wheelbase and 210-inch overall length, while the Expedition MAX has a 131.6-inch wheelbase and is 221.9 inches long.


This five-passenger base trim is given cloth upholstery, automatic LED headlights, tri-zone automatic climate control, a power (eight-way) driver’s seat, a second-row 40/20/40-split folding bench seat, keyless entry, push-button ignition, rear privacy glass, running boards finished in black, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with a tilt/telescopic column, heated power side mirrors, and 18-inch aluminum wheels. The Ford Co-Pilot360 system is installed to supply automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, rear parking sensors, and blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert. Ford makes it easy to stay informed and entertained inside the Expedition with the SYNC 4 system. It has a 12-inch touchscreen, wireless smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), a six-speaker sound system, USB ports, and access to a Wi-Fi hotspot and Ford Connected Services. This is the only 2023 Expedition trim that isn’t offered in a MAX (extended length) version.


The XLT is the lowest Expedition trim that Ford makes in both regular and MAX lengths. Regardless of which length it is, it gets a third row of seating, a 60/40-split power-folding bench for three – although there’s an option to swap in the second-row captain’s chairs. All rows get their own climate controls. The XLT is also improved with a power liftgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, SiriusXM satellite radio, Connected Navigation, and a Class IV trailer hitch receiver. The options offered on this trim are heated and ventilated front seats, a power moonroof (Panoramic Vista Roof), a driver’s position memory system, adaptive cruise control, front parking sensors, upgraded automatic emergency braking, lane centering assist, and speed sign recognition.


The Limited builds off the XLT’s standard features by adding LED exterior headlights, the Panoramic Vista Roof, leather upholstery, a hands-free liftgate, proximity keyless entry, a ten-way power driver’s seat, a driver’s position memory system, an eight-way power front passenger seat, and 20-inch wheels; a bench seat is optional. It’s outfitted for high comfort in extreme weather thanks to remote start, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row captain’s chairs, heated power-folding side mirrors, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The most noteworthy option for the Limited is the Stealth Performance Package, which gives it the high-output engine (440 hp and 510 lb.-ft of torque), among a host of other amenities.


As the offroad-oriented Expedition, the Timberline gets 10.6 inches of ground clearance plus rugged specs like a heavy-duty radiator, 33-inch all-terrain tires (on 18-inch wheels), skid plates, a specialized suspension with off-road shocks, a two-speed transfer case, Trail Control (which uses the braking and throttle systems to offer more control off the pavement), and an electronic limited-slip differential. Like the base XL STX, it’s only made with a second-row bench seat (it isn’t eligible for second-row captain’s chairs). It also has the high-output engine, making 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft of torque. The other upgrades from the XLT include proximity keyless entry, a driver’s memory system with power-adjustable pedals, a ten-way power driver’s seat, an eight-way power front passenger seat, power-folding second- and third-row seats, and ActiveX upholstery with cloth inserts.

King Ranch

This plush version of the ’23 Expedition is marked by luxurious Del Rio leather-trimmed seats, trim-specific exterior badging and interior elements, a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, power-folding captain’s chairs in the middle row, power retractable running boards, a 15.5-inch infotainment touchscreen, and 22-inch wheels. Ford offers Active Park Assist semi-automatic self-parking as an option.


At the top of the Expedition lineup, the Platinum presents an upgraded suspension, interior wood trim, premium leather upholstery, massaging front seats (heated and ventilated), second-row captain’s chairs (the three-person bench is optional), and active noise cancellation. Active Park Assist comes standard, as does BlueCruise, Ford’s hands-free driving technology.
