Overview of 2012 Ford Expedition XL By Eric Tallberg
In a dwindling full-size SUV market, the 2012 Ford Expedition XL, with seating for 5 and 108 cubic feet of cargo capacity, remains one of the more well-endowed choices. Boasting 17-inch alloy wheels, a roof rack, heated power-adjustable mirrors with integrated blind-spot indent and a standard Class IV trailer hitch and wiring, this entry-level trim also comes with cloth upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, reclining rear seats and simulated alloy cabin trim. Cruise control, full power accessories and tilt-wheel steering add convenience, while front and rear air conditioning will soothe on long, hot drives. Finally, a 160-watt audio system boasts 6 speakers, an auxiliary MP3 hookup, satellite radio and separate rear-seat controls.
Options, meanwhile, include a heavy-duty trailer package, remote engine start, rear-seat DVD entertainment, Ford’s touted SYNC AppLink infotainment system with Bluetooth and a 3.73 non-limited-slip rear axle.
Powering the 2012 Expedition XL is a 5.3-liter Flex Fuel V8 with variable valve timing (VVT). Mated with the standard 6-speed transmission, this capable mill pounds out 310 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque, while it’ll get an estimated 14 mpg city/20 highway with the standard rear-wheel drivetrain (RWD). Towing, finally, is maxed out at 9,200 pounds when properly equipped.
Noteworthy standard safety equipment aboard Ford’s entry-level full-size Expedition XL includes 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front side-mounted airbags and front and rear head airbags. This big ute also sports standard front fog/driving lights, a post-collision safety system, remote antitheft alarm and, when sis or junior have high hopes for an evening out, Ford’s programmable MyKey speed and audio limiters.
This overview covers the XL trim only.
