The big news is the King Ranch trim, which joins the trim levels between the Limited and the Platinum for 2020. The power folding third-row seats on all trims now also provide power reclining. Third-row smart-charging USB ports are standard on all trims except the base trim. See the 2020 Ford Expedition models for sale near you
Even the Expedition XLT is nicely equipped, but our first choice would be a Limited version with the Driver Assistance package. From there, we would either work our way up or down, depending on our budget. Find a Ford Expedition for sale

2020 Chevrolet Tahoe -- Offers a V8 engine with more power than the Expedition can muster. But its rear seats don't fold flush into the floor and don't offer as much legroom. You could look at the GMC Yukon and the Chevrolet Suburban, too.
2020 Nissan Armada -- Comes with a 390-hp V8 engine. No long-wheelbase variant, though.
2020 Toyota Sequoia -- Not as many creature comforts nor as much towing capacity. And hardly the freshest on the block. But it traditionally enjoys better resale values than the Expedition.
