Ford sells the ’24 Expedition in six trim packages: XL STX, XLT, Limited, Timberline, King Ranch, and Platinum. All but the XL STX and Timberline are offered in extended-length Max variants, which have 16.9 more cubic feet of total cargo space and a 30-gallon fuel tank (which is five gallons larger than the tank in the regular Expedition).
There are three different engines on offer. The XL STX and XLT both get a turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that produces 380 hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. While the Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum also have a 3.5-liter V6, it’s tuned to generate 400 hp and 480 lb.-ft. of torque. The Timberline is the beefiest of the bunch since it uses a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 that whisks 440 hp and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. Ford’s 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission completes the powertrain for each engine. Rear-wheel drive is standard on most trims, but four-wheel drive is optional on all but the Timberline, which gets it standard. When it comes to towing, the regular-length 2024 Expedition can pull up to 9,300 lb. with the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package, while the Max models with the same package pull 300 lb. less.
The entry-level XL STX is configured with two rows of seating to accommodate five passengers. Its standout amenities consist of LED headlights, heated side mirrors, tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry, push-button ignition, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, roof rails, rear privacy glass, a Class IV trailer hitch, 18-inch wheels, an overhead console sunglasses holder and conversation mirror, and a 40/20/40-split folding/reclining second-row bench seat. In the technology category, it gets an 8-inch gauge cluster, a universal home remote, four USB charging ports (two in each row), and four 12V power outlets. The XLT adds a 60/40-split power-folding/reclining third-row seat, allowing it to fit up to eight passengers. It also gains a power liftgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, two media hub USB charging ports, and 15 total beverage holders.
The lavish Limited is treated to an assortment of upscale refinements. For starters, it has LED fog lights and taillights, a panoramic glass roof, power-folding exterior mirrors with driver’s side auto-dimming, 20-inch wheels, proximity keyless entry (Intelligent Access), remote start, and rain-sensing wipers. In the cabin, there’s ambient interior lighting, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, leather upholstery, a heated power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second-row captain’s chairs (this reduces seating to seven), and power-folding third-row head restraints. For tech, this trim has a wireless phone charger, two third-row USB charging ports, and a 110V power outlet. The Limited also has position memory settings for the side mirrors, driver’s seat, and power-adjustable pedals.
For buyers who prefer to spend their time off the beaten path, the Timberline is the best choice. This more rugged variant builds upon the XLT with 10.6 inches of ground clearance (the other models have 9.8 inches) and an array of off-road upgrades, including a heavy-duty engine radiator, an electronic limited-slip differential, comprehensive underbody protection, a two-speed transfer case, an off-road suspension with enhanced shocks, Trail Control (which provides greater control on unpredictable terrain), front tow hooks, and 18-inch wheels with 33-inch all-terrain tires. For comfort and convenience, the Timberline has many of the nicer amenities listed for the Limited (LED fog lights, Intelligent Access, remote start, power-folding side mirrors and third-row head restraints, power-adjustable pedals and front passenger’s seat, position memory, heated power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, wireless charger, third-row USB ports, and 110V power outlet). Some of the features that differentiate the Timberline are zone lighting, exclusive exterior bodywork, and ActiveX synthetic-leather upholstery with unique orange stitching.
The King Ranch is most similar to the Limited, but it’s distinguished by trim-specific badging, Stone Grey exterior detailing, 22-inch wheels, special leather upholstery, and a 12.4-inch digital gauge cluster. At the height of Expedition luxury is the Platinum. This swanky trim gets zone lighting along with satin-aluminum exterior accents, a continuously controlled damping suspension, massaging front seats, and active noise control. If some of those premium features are enticing but you don’t want to upgrade to a higher trim, many of them are available for the less expensive versions through optional bundles.
The confidence-inspiring Ford Co-Pilot360 safety suite comes standard in the 2024 Ford Expedition, providing pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, lane keeping assist, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors. The Limited and Timberline both get the more advanced Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ suite with adaptive cruise control, lane centering, speed sign recognition, and front parking sensors. The King Ranch comes with a surround-view camera, while the Platinum is sweetened with Active Park Assist and BlueCruise, Ford’s hands-free highway driving system. Many of those deluxe driver assist technologies are optional for the lower trims.
Ford’s top-of-the-line SYNC 4 infotainment system is standard in the ’24 Expedition. In the XL STX, its components are a 12-inch touchscreen, navigation, Bluetooth hands-free, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a six-speaker audio system, and FordPass Connect with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. The XLT and above trims gain SiriusXM satellite radio, while the Limited is upgraded with a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen (B&O) sound system and HD radio. The King Ranch and Platinum both get the top-shelf SYNC 4A system with its 15.5-inch touchscreen and 22-speaker B&O stereo system that will make the cabin feel like your own personal concert hall. All but the base XL STX are eligible for a dual-display rear entertainment system.
