2019 Ford Expedition Max
With its long wheelbase and rugged potential, the 2019 Ford Expedition Max is an SUV of epic proportions. The Expedition Max is the long-wheelbase version of Ford's full-size Expedition SUV. This longer wheelbase translates to greater interior space, with more hip- and elbowroom for the whole family. This SUV has an especially big cargo hold. Where the regular Expedition offers 20.9 cubic feet behind the rear seats, the Expedition Max has 36 cubes. If your family prefers not to travel light, this is definitely the SUV for you.
Why choose the 2019 Ford Expedition Max?
The regular Expedition is huge, but the 2019 Ford Expedition Max is truly cavernous. Get this long-wheelbase SUV because you need more cabin and cargo space than the average bear.
Besides space, this SUV is ready for action with a muscular V6 engine and excellent towing capabilities. In fact, Ford's extended full-size SUV beats most with max payloads of up to 9,000 pounds. If your big family has a big boat or camper, you're going to love this SUV. But the capabilities don't stop there. With four-wheel drive, this Ford all-star can head deep into rugged territory, boosting your adventure quotient by a lot.
What are the 2019 Ford Expedition Max trims?
The Expedition Max is now available in all three of the regular Expedition trim levels - the entry-level XLT, mid-level Limited, and top-tier Platinum. Which, of course, means that this roomy SUV appeals to a wide range of drivers, whether you want a three-row SUV on a budget or can't live without a fully loaded luxury liner. Here's a look at some of the highlights from each trim level.
The XLT is a great option for comfort-minded buyers on a budget. This might be the entry-level trim, but the XLT never shorts you on comfort. There isn't a cramped seat in the house; even the third row has adult-friendly legroom. And, with standard seating for eight passengers, the XLT really caters to big families.
This SUV has a tech lineup that will impress the technophiles out there. The Sync 3 infotainment interface includes complete smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Use the system's touchscreen interface or voice controls to interact with your smartphone the safe way. And, with four USB ports-two up front and two in the second row-no device need go uncharged.
The Limited means increasingly modern comfort and lots of nifty timesavers. For starters, the cabin keeps you cool and composed with standard heated and ventilated front seats (optional for the XLT). Dual-zone automatic climate control supplies two temperate zones for driver and front passenger. If you're always hot and your significant other is always cold, this seemingly innocuous technology is actually life-changing. To make sure you never have to sweat the small stuff, the Limited stacks the deck with modern conveniences. We're big fans of the hands-free liftgate. One of this SUV's draws is its gigantic cargo hold, after all, and this technology makes loading stuff in there that much easier.
In the performance department, the entry-level 2019 Ford Expedition also delivers the goods. Ford's turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine provides nothing short of excellence, giving you 375 horses and 470 pound-feet of torque to power through your day.
The top-of-the-line Premium comes with almost everything this full-size SUV has to offer, which, of course, makes for a supremely luxurious ride. Get the star treatment with features like wood interior accents, leather door trim, and front seats that can give you a massage. The Premium gives you European-level luxury at an American rate.
This SUV is also a prime pick for driving enthusiasts. The Premium features an upgraded version of the Expedition engine, for an increased output of 400 horses and 480 pound-feet of torque. With this extra power comes greater confidence, on-road and off. Add four-wheel drive and you'll power through the wilderness like a pro.
What's the 2019 Ford Expedition Max towing capacity?
Ford's extended-wheelbase SUV is supremely capable. Properly equipped, the Expedition Max can tow up to 9,000 pounds. Which, of course, is excellent news for drivers who hit the road with their enormous camper in tow.
