The Ford Expedition has an interior that's remarkable for its ample space and cargo versatility. New for 2009 is the addition of Ford's SYNC infotainment system.
- "The main thing to note about the Expedition's interior is its massive size." -- Automobile Magazine
The 2009 Ford Expedition's bucket seats are especially a hit with reviewers.
- "Soft cushioning but are supportive enough for extended highway driving . . . Nice job, Ford." -- Cars.com
- "We . . .stuffed a 6'7" goose in the back. He didn't mind, saying he'd even tolerate riding back there for shorter trips." -- Car and Driver
- The third row has enough space to "to actually keep knees at the seat bottom level rather than forcing a fetal position with knees closer to the chest." -- Edmunds
Opinions vary on the quality of the interior materials for the base model Expedition. SYNC, Ford's voice-activated infotainment system, is newly available for 2009.
- "A plethora of hard-plastic panels cheapens Expedition's interior ambiance, even with the available leather upholstery." -- Consumer Guide
- "Rich look and feel," -- The Family Car
- "Materials "leave something to be desired," -- Autoweb
- "You need to go up through the trim levels to turn it into a luxurious vehicle." -- Automobile Magazine
When it comes to carrying cargo, the expedition really shines, beating out competitors for space and convenience.
- "The scaffolding, the ladder, and the halogen-light tripod all fit in the back completely flat, with plenty of room to spare. . . .I say, if you're gonna have a big, gas-guzzling SUV, it might as well have lots of space, and in that regard the Expedition serves its purpose well." -- Automobile Magazine
- "The Expedition "will gulp 131 cubic feet of hockey gear, Home Depot scores, double cheeseburgers, or whatever trappings of the suburban life are crammed in." -- Car and Driver
