Like last model year, all 2010 Ford Expeditions are available in either standard-length or the extended-length EL. There are four different models available: XLT, Eddie Bauer, Limited and King Ranch. All trims are powered by a 5.4L Triton-V8 engine with Flex Fuel capability and 3-valve Variable Cam Timing. The engine can deliver 310 horsepower at 5100 rpm and 365 pounds-feet of torque at 3600 rpm. All Expeditions come standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission. All Expeditions are available in either rear-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive powertrain.
The Expedition has a tough, fully-boxed frame for long-term durability in towing and hauling. It also has an independent rear suspension, which gives it a better ride than many other truck-based SUVs. Variable boost power steering also improves maneuverability. The 6-speed automatic transmission, with a wider gear ratio, has smaller steps between gears than the commonly used 4-speed automatic and offers improved shift quality, faster acceleration and improved fuel economy. Ford's exclusive AdvanceTrac with RSC is now joined by standard Trailer Sway Control, and the two systems work together to detect trailer sway and apply precise braking or reduce engine torque as needed. The Expedition can tow up to 9,200 pounds when properly equipped.
Both standard and EL Expedition models have three rows of seating, and the second row is available either in a 40/20/40-split bench or two captain's chairs. On the EL, the third row is not only roomier but easier to access, thanks to larger rear doors. Both rows of seats fold flat with the touch of a button. Overall, the EL is nearly 15 inches longer than the standard-length model and rides on a wheelbase that is a foot longer. The EL also has more cargo space behind the third row: 24 cubic feet more than the standard-length model.
Standard safety equipment includes seat-mounted front side air bags with head-protecting Safety Canopy side-curtain air bags. These features are part of Ford's Personal Safety System, which includes seat belt pre-tensioners, load limiting retractors, driver seat position sensing, crash severity sensing, SecuriLock Passive Anti-Theft System, Ford's SOS Post Crash Alert System, tire pressure monitoring system and traction control.
Standard equipment for 2010 includes the Easy Fuel Capless fuel-filler system (an industry-exclusive feature that self-seals without a traditional fuel cap). Other standard equipment includes an anti-theft perimeter alarm system and second-row heated seats.
Standard equipment on the XLT includes cruise control, power heated mirrors, AM/FM single CD/MP3 player, audio input jack and auxiliary power outlet. The Eddie Bauer trim adds unique paint and exterior trim, special badging, a chrome-trimmed interior console, dual-zone climate control, steering wheel controls, rearview mirror with memory, trip computer, entertainment system, integrated turn signal mirrors, adjustable pedals, leather seats and seat memory. The Limited trim adds as standard rain-sensing wipers, remote trunk release, power-folding mirrors, rear parking aid, power lift gate, backup camera, chrome wheels and passenger lumbar. On the King Ranch, standard equipment includes woodgrain interior trim and other luxury interior features, including high-quality Chaparral leather seats and trim.
Standout options across the lineup include a navigation system, power moonroof, second-row captain's chairs, premium AM/FM in-dash with 6-CD/MP3 player and subwoofer, illuminated entry with approach lamps, rear-seat DVD system, and Power Code remote start.
SYNC and SIRIUS Travel Link are available on the XLT and standard on Eddie Bauer, Limited and King Ranch trim levels.

The 2010 Ford Expedition has been upgraded as part of Ford's complete overhaul of its entire lineup. Key among the standard features on all 2010 trims is Trailer Sway Control, which is now combined with AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control for improved confidence while towing. A wide array of standard safety features enhances the Expedition's safety reputation. Three new colors are available for 2010: Tuxedo Black, Ingot Silver and Sterling Grey Metallic.
Also new for 2010 is the availability of MyKey, a programmable vehicle key exclusive to Ford. It allows parents to program the vehicle so that when a minor is driving, top speeds are limited to 80 mph, an alarm rings at speeds of 45, 55 or 65 mph, the audio system goes mute until the safety belt is buckled, and volume can be limited to 44 percent of maximum volume. It can also activate a persistent Belt-Minder chime and a traction control system that limits tire spin and cannot be deactivated.
The Expedition is Ford's largest full-size SUV. It stands out for its combination of smooth ride and quiet interior comfort, with full-size-truck hauling ability. The Expedition's 9,200-pound tow capacity is the best in its class. Its competition includes the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban. Fuel economy will vary depending on the trim, ranging from a low of 11 mpg in the city to a high of 20 mpg on the highway. All trims are capable of running E85 (85% ethanol, 15% gasoline), regular unleaded gasoline or any combination in-between. MSRP starts at $32,855.
