Ford Expediton 2012

The Ford Expedition is a full-size SUV built by theFord Motor Company. Introduced in 1997 as a replacement to the Ford Bronco, it was previously slotted between the smaller Ford Explorer and the larger Ford Excursion, but as of the 2005 model year, it is Ford's largest and last truck-based, off-road and tow capable SUV. Ford currently offers the standard regular-sized model and the larger EL/Max model, succeeding the Excursion which was discontinued in 2005. It is the second Ford vehicle to use the Expedition name, as it was part of the Explorer Sport's trim models during the 1995 model year. All Expeditions were originally built in Wayne, Michigan. In 2009, Ford shifted its current third generation (2007–present) model production toLouisville, Kentucky as Ford has begun converting the Wayne assembly plant to start building the future production of the Focus.

The Expedition offered up to nine passenger seating in model years before 2007 (with a front bench seat option); 2007–present offer 2 bucket seats in the first row.[2] It is equipped with a V8 engine. It is similar to the Lincoln Navigator, especially for the 2007–present model in Limited or King Ranch high end trims; both of which were introduced for the 2005 model year. With the 2011 model year Ford made changes in the base level department, with the newly designated XL trim a standard and upgrading the XLT to second level and replacing the Eddie Bauer trim that was phased out from the entire Ford vehicle lineup. Over 1,500,000 Expeditions have been sold since its introduction. A specially modified Special Service Vehicle version is also available from Ford for law enforcement agencies, fire departments, and EMS agencies.
Initially, a 2-air bag supplementary restraint system (SRS) with 2-way occupant protection was standard on Expedition. The system included adaptive dual front air bags for front seat occupants. The air bags would adjust deployment force depending on crash severity. Other features also includedSecuriLock with smart key and engine immobilizer, security approach lamps, 4-wheel ABS brakes, side intrusion door beams, post crash fuel pump shut-off and three-point safety belts for all rows of seating with tension and locking retractors.

An optional 4-air bag supplementary restraint system (SRS) with 4-way occupant protection became available for the 2000–2002 model years. Dual front seat side impact air bags were added (bundled with the ultrasonic rear park assist) for upper torso protection. The side impact air bags can be identified by an oval badge reading "Air bag" attached to the outboard front seat bolsters.

2002 model Expeditions introduced the BeltMinder system which would detect when the driver didn’t have his/her safety belt secured. An audible alarm would sound, in the form of a warning chime, until the driver’s safety belt was fastened.
