How Much Does a 2021 Ford Expedition Cost?

The 2021 Ford Expedition comes in regular (Expedition) and extended (Expedition Max) wheelbases, and in five trim levels.   Adding all-wheel drive varies in price from model to model, but it’s optional with all Expeditions. Expect to pay around $3,000. All vehicle prices include a $1,695 destination charge. XL ($50,720/$53,720) comes standard with seating for five, plus 18-in alloy wheels, capless fuel filler, running boards, roof rack, single-zone manual climate control, cloth upholstery, 15 cup holders, leather-wrapped steering wheel, programmable Ford MyKey, remote start/lock/unlock, vehicle location, hill-start assist, trailer sway control, Sync voice command system, 4.2-in infotainment screen, Bluetooth, four USB ports, wi-fi (for up to 10 devices), AM/FM radio, 6-speaker audio system, and the Ford Co-Pilot 360 driver aids (see Safety section below). An STX package for XL trim brings tri-zone automatic climate control, Sync 3 infotainment system   with an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration. Power-folding/reclining third-row seats (bringing the occupant count up to eight), rear parking sensors and satellite radio are also available. XLT ($54,505/$56,505) has all those extras as standard, and adds a self-dimming rearview mirror and heated side mirrors. This trim is eligible for heated/ventilated/power-adjustable front seats (10-way for the driver, 8-way for the passenger), simulated leather upholstery, keyless entry/ignition, heated/power-adjustable steering wheel, powered lift gate, 110-volt outlet, wireless charging, adaptive cruise control with stop/go, navigation, and 20-inch alloy wheels. Limited ($63,270/$65,270) comes standard with those XLT options, along with LED taillights, hands-free lift gate operation, power-retractable running boards, power-folding side mirrors (self-dimming on the driver’s side), rain-sensing wipers, front parking sensors, power-adjustable pedals, memory settings, leather-covered front seats, ambient cabin lighting, HD radio, and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system. The XLT and Limited trims are both eligible for FX4 Off-Road packages that bring all-terrain tires, specialized off-road suspension, underbody protection, 360-degree camera system (with front camera washer) and a 2-speed all-wheel drive system with an electronic locking limited-slip differential. Limited trim can also be ordered with 22-in alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof, full exterior LED lighting, and parallel/perpendicular parking assistance. These are standard in the King Ranch trim. King Ranch ($74,430/$76,430) also has special exterior accents, Mesa/Ebony interior with upgraded leather upholstery, power-folding/tip/slide second-row captain’s chairs (reducing seating capacity to seven), and the 360-degree camera system. Limited and King Ranch trims are eligible for an adaptive suspension. Platinum ($75,470/$77,470) has that adaptive suspension as standard, plus a 400-hp V6, massaging/multi-contour front seats, extended leather trim, active noise control, and inflatable second-row seat belts.

Ford Expedition Safety

Is the 2021 Ford Expedition a Safe Car?

Ford equips every Expedition with front, front-side and full-length side-curtain airbags. A rollover sensor can activate the side and curtain airbags even if there’s no collision. AdvanceTrac with roll stability control helps keep the vehicle from veering off course when skidding or plowing, and the electronic traction control reduces wheel spin on slippery surfaces. Every Expedition has trailer sway control as standard. The driver aids in the Ford Co-Pilot360 array are forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, dynamic brake support, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assistance and automatic high beams. The optional all-wheel drive system also has a hill descent control function. In crash testing performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Expedition received a perfect five stars overall, including five stars apiece for front and side impact protection.

2021 Ford Expedition vs the competition

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe — Offers a more powerful V8 engine than the Expedition. But its rear seats don’t fold flush into the floor and don’t offer as much legroom. Look at the GMC Yukon and the Chevrolet Suburban as well. 2021 Nissan Armada — Comes with a 390-hp V8 engine. No long-wheelbase variant, though. 2021 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. Used Lincoln Navigator — Basically an Expedition with extra style and luxury. A certified pre-owned model through a Lincoln dealer can be found for the price of a new Expedition.
