2023 Expedition Key Safety Features

Prospective buyers in the USA can be reassured by the standard safety specs across the Expedition range. Standard from the base model is the prerequisite rearview camera, a tire pressure monitoring system, and six airbags. Every model is equipped with Ford's Co-Pilot360 technology, which includes blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, auto high beams, lane keeping assist, and pre-collision assist with auto braking. Trailer sway control and traction control are important on a large SUV, and 4x4s have hill start assist with hill descent control.

The Limited gets intelligent adaptive cruise control, lane centering assist, speed sign recognition, pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, and rain-sensing wipers in front. Standing alone is the Platinum as it now boasts Ford's BlueCruise system that permits hands-free driving on compatible roads.
