Used Car: 2010 Ford Expedition Review

Review Last Updated: 7/11/12

The 2010 Ford Expedition can tow heavy trailers, but it also stands out with a versatile interior and seating for up to eight, making it one of the best choices for anyone looking for a used 2010 large SUV.

The 2010 Ford Expedition is ranked:

When it was new, reviewers liked the 2010 Expedition’s large, versatile interior. They also liked its available adult-sized third-row seat that folds flat into the floor at the push of a button. Enthusiasm for the Expedition’s handling was lacking, but large SUVs aren’t known for having nimble driving dynamics.

The Expedition is powered by a 5.4-liter V8 that is good for an EPA-estimated 14/20 mpg city/highway with rear-wheel drive or 12/17 mpg with four-wheel drive. The regular-wheelbase Expedition can carry up to 108.3 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded and tow up to 9,200 pounds. A long-wheelbase Expedition EL has more cargo space, but can’t tow quite as much.

The base 2010 Ford Expedition XLT seats five and comes standard with power mirrors, door locks and windows, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a six-speaker stereo with a CD player and auxiliary input. On Eddie Bauer and higher trims, standard equipment includes a power-folding third-row seat, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, satellite radio and Ford’s SYNC infotainment system. Reviewers said that anyone looking for luxury should check out the higher Limited and King Ranch trims. The Expedition saw few changes since 2007, so you might be able to save some money by opting for an older model.

Other Cars to Consider

If you’re looking at the Expedition, be sure to check out the 2010 Chevrolet Suburban as well. Its interior space rivals the long-wheelbase Expedition EL, and reviewers generally said the Suburban was easier to drive. It also has slightly better fuel economy estimates. The Suburban’s main drawbacks are its lower reliability score and a bulky third-row seat that must be removed to maximize cargo space.

The 2010 Toyota Sequoia is one of the highest-ranked vehicles in the class. Reviewers generally found the Sequoia’s interior fit and finish to be better than the Expedition’s, and also said that it handles well for such a large vehicle. The Sequoia’s cargo space holds the ground between the short-wheelbase Expedition and the longer Expedition EL, and the Sequoia can tow up to 10,000 pounds, making it a good choice for those looking for good cargo space and a strong towing capability.
