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