Expedition Preparation: Day-Trip-Friendly Features of the 2019 Ford Expedition

2019 Ford Expedition 2

The 2019 Ford Expedition was made for taking day trips with the family. Whether you’re headed to Montgomery, Atlanta or down to the coast, you can count on the Expedition to keep everyone comfortable for the journey ahead. With spacious seating and tons of entertainment features, the hours will surely tick by in no time. Check out just some of the reasons why families at Ernest McCarty Ford say they love taking the 2019 Expedition for all their day trips and vacations.

The Best in Backseat Comfort

When spending the day on the road, having enough space is so important. Luckily, the Expedition can fit eight passengers, and none of them ever have to feel cramped. This SUV has best-in-class leg room in both the second and third rows, which means even your tallest passengers will feel comfortable. There are also several cupholders (up to 15!) for all those road trip drinks and snacks. What’s more, passengers have access to their own climate control panel and charging ports for their phones. By the time you arrive at your destination, everyone can be fully charged and ready to go.

Plus, to keep passengers of all ages entertained, the Expedition offers the available Dual-Headrest Rear Seat Entertainment System with two video screens. Watching your favorite movie is a great way to pass the time and enjoy the ride. Aside from DVDs, this entertainment system is also compatible with:

  • Home cable programming
  • Video gaming systems
  • Mobile device streaming
  • And more…

Rather listen to music? Turn on your favorite road trip playlist and blast it through the Expedition’s speakers. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity make it easy to connect your phone and access your go-to songs anytime, anywhere.

Storage for All Your Gear

You never know what you might need while out adventuring with the family. With the Expedition, you don’t have to worry about packing light. It offers a full 20.9 cu. ft. of storage behind the third row, which is perfect for coolers, strollers, diaper bags, suitcases and more. Need more storage room? In that case, simply fold down the back row(s) or upgrade to the Expedition MAX to get almost an extra foot of space. To help keep your cargo organized, be sure to take advantage of the Advanced Cargo Manager – an available feature for the trunk that comes with an adjustable shelf.

Waze Gets You Where You Need to Go

Navigation is one of the most important parts of any road trip, especially if you’re going somewhere you’ve never been before. That’s why the 2019 Expedition has Waze built into the dashboard through the Ford SYNC 3 AppLink feature. Not only does Waze offer turn-by-turn directions, but it can also help you avoid accidents, traffic jams and potential road hazards to make sure your trip goes as smoothly as possible. If you accidentally miss your exit, don’t worry. Waze has you covered. Just use the touch screen to program in your directions and kick off your day with the family right.

Make Your Day Trip Plans a Reality

Tackle your bucket list and get out on the road with the whole crew in the 2019 Ford Expedition. Wherever you go, the SUV’s comfortable seats, spacious storage room and helpful technology features are just some of the things you can look forward to.

2019 Ford Escape Gets Safer and Smarter

2019 Ford Escape Safety Features

The Ford Escape has always been a safe SUV, but now it’s even safer thanks to the addition of the Ford Safe and Smart™ Package. Available on select trims, this package helps keep drivers and their passengers safer every time they take off down the road. So much so, that the vehicle was awarded a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Whether you’re thinking about getting an Escape from Ernest McCarty Ford or you already drive one, take a closer look at what it can do to protect you behind the wheel.

Overview of the Ford Safe & Smart™ Package

The package is optional for all trim levels starting from the SE. It utilizes the latest, most advanced driver technology to bring you greater peace of mind. If you select this package, your 2019 Ford Escape will come equipped with the following:

  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert. Blind spots are always causing problems, but not anymore. The Escape’s advanced blind spot monitoring system comes in handy while trying to change lanes and while backing up out of a parking spot. If there’s a car in either of your blind spots, you’ll know.
  • Lane-Keeping System. Drifting out of your lane can be dangerous, especially when driving on crowded city streets or busy highways. If it happens, the Escape has you covered. When it detects you’ve gone over the lines, the steering wheel will start vibrating to get your attention and let you know you need to move back over.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support. While driving, the Escape keeps a close eye on the vehicle in front of you. If the system thinks there might be a potential collision, it’ll flash a warning, sound an alarm and pre-charge the brakes. All this is to alert you and give you enough time to brake or move out of the way and potentially avoid an accident. The Adaptive Cruise Control will maintain your speed as well as pre-set gaps from the car in front of you for added safety. So if that car starts to slow down, yours will, too.
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps. When you’re driving at night with your high beams on, sometimes it’s easy to forget to switch them off for approaching cars. But the 2019 Ford Escape can take care of this for you. When enabled, this feature detects when other cars are approaching and automatically turns the high beams off. It’s a convenience to you and makes it easier for oncoming traffic to see where they’re going.
  • Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers. The wipers can detect rain and react fast to make sure you can see clearly. When it stops raining, they’ll automatically stop, which means there’s one less thing for you to worry about.

More Safety Features to Discover

The 2019 Ford Escape redesign offers more technology features where those came from. Of course, we have to mention AdvanceTrac® with RSC (Roll Stability Control™), which comes standard. It helps keep you steady on curves and rough terrain. And let’s not forget about Enhanced Active Park Assist that makes parallel parking a breeze. As you can see, the list of safety features goes on and on. If you have any questions about the SUV’s safety, reach out to Ernest McCarty Ford. You can also test drive a 2019 Ford Escape to see how it handles for yourself when you stop by the dealership today.
