Trims, Powertrain, and Towing

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.


With seating for up to five passengers and plenty of high-end features, the XL STX is a commendable base trim. Its most prominent amenities include LED headlights, heated power-adjustable side mirrors, roof rack side rails, a Class IV trailer hitch receiver, remote keyless entry, push-button start, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a 40/20/40-split reclining/fold-flat second-row seatback. In the tech department, it has an 8-inch gauge cluster, a universal garage door opener, four smart-charging USB charging ports (two in each row), and four 12V power outlets.

The Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced driving aids is also installed in the XL STX, equipping it with automatic high beams, lane keeping assist, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, and rear parking sensors. Ford’s advanced SYNC 4 infotainment system is standard as well, providing a 12-inch touchscreen with connected navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, a six-speaker sound system, and FordPass Connect with a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.


The XLT is enhanced with a power liftgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, two multimedia USB ports, and SiriusXM satellite radio. Not only that, but it can accommodate up to eight passengers with the PowerFold 60/40-split third-row bench seat.


The Limited takes a more upscale turn, adding LED fog lights and taillights, a panoramic glass roof, power-folding and driver’s side auto-dimming side mirrors, proximity keyless entry (Intelligent Access), remote start, and rain-sensing wipers. The interior is adorned with ambient interior lighting, leather upholstery, a heated power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats with power adjustments for the passenger, heated second-row captain’s chairs (which reduce seating capacity to seven), and power-folding third-row head restraints.

On the tech and connectivity front, the Limited introduces wireless phone charging, a deluxe 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen (B&O) audio system, HD radio, two third-row USB charging ports, and a 110V power outlet. It also features position memory settings for the side mirrors, driver’s seat, and power-adjustable pedals. To top it off, the more advanced Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ system is standard, adding adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane centering, speed sign recognition, and front parking sensors.


If you consider yourself an adventure enthusiast, then the Timberline is the way to go. This hardcore variant starts with the XLT’s features list but adds more rugged components: a heavy-duty engine radiator, an electronic limited-slip differential, underbody bash plates, a two-speed transfer case, an off-road suspension with enhanced shocks, 10.6 inches of ground clearance (the other models have 9.8 inches), Trail Control (which provides greater control on rough terrain), front tow hooks, and all-terrain tires.

The Timberline also gets many of the lavish amenities found in the Limited trim: remote start, LED fog lights, Intelligent Access, power-folding side mirrors and third-row head restraints, power-adjustable pedals and front passenger’s seat, position memory settings, power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, wireless phone charging, third-row USB ports, and 110V power outlet). It also has exterior zone lighting and simulated-leather upholstery (ActiveX) with contrast stitching in deep tangerine.

King Ranch

The western-inspired King Ranch takes after the Limited, but with the addition of trim-specific badging, Stone Grey exterior accents, special Del Rio leather seats, a surround-view camera with Trailer Reverse Guidance, a 12.4-inch digital gauge cluster, and the sophisticated SYNC 4A infotainment system with a 15.5-inch touchscreen and 22-speaker B&O sound system.


At the top of the range, the Platinum gets the exterior zone lighting seen on the Timberline, plus the King Ranch’s SYNC 4A infotainment system, a continuously controlled damping suspension, massaging front seats, active noise control, Active Park Assist, and BlueCruise 1.0, Ford’s state-of-the-art hands-free driving system. Many of those swanky features are available for the lower trims as options. What’s more, most trims (except for the base XL STX) qualify for a rear entertainment system with dual front headrest displays.
