By: Miller Hughes Ford Cornwall   |   30 Apr 2023

The 2023 Ford Expedition is a full-size SUV that sets a new standard for family cars. With its spacious interior, advanced safety features, and impressive towing capacity, the Expedition offers everything a family could want in a vehicle.

Under the hood, the Expedition is powered by a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine that delivers 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth, responsive shifting. But why is it the best car for Ontario families? Here are a few good reasons. 

Seating and Storage

The 2023 Ford Expedition offers seating for up to eight passengers, perfect for large families or those who frequently travel with friends. The second-row seats can slide forward and backward, providing ample legroom for even the tallest passengers. The third-row seats are also spacious, making them comfortable for adults or children.

In addition to its seating capacity, the Expedition offers plenty of storage space. The Expedition provides 20.9 cubic feet of storage space with all seats in place. Fold down the third-row seats, and that number increases to 63.6 cubic feet. Fold down the second and third rows; you'll have 104.6 cubic feet of storage space.

Safety Features

When it comes to family cars, safety is always a top priority. The 2023 Ford Expedition does not disappoint in this area. It has advanced safety features, including forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and lane-departure warning.

It also offers optional features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. The Expedition also features Ford's Co-Pilot360 technology, which includes a 360-degree camera system, automatic high beams, and a rearview camera with a washer. These features make it easier for drivers to navigate tight parking spaces or back up safely.


Long car rides with kids can be a challenge, but the 2023 Ford Expedition makes it easier with its advanced entertainment features. The Expedition comes standard with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity, and a six-speaker audio system.

Higher trims offer even more entertainment options, including a 12-speaker B&O sound system, a rear-seat entertainment system with two 8-inch screens, and a wireless charging pad for compatible devices. With these features, kids can stay entertained for hours while parents can focus on the road ahead.


The 2023 Ford Expedition is designed with family comfort in mind. The cabin is spacious and well-appointed, with high-quality materials and soft-touch surfaces. The front seats are heated and ventilated, providing comfort in any weather.

The Expedition also features a tri-zone automatic climate control system, allowing passengers in all three rows to adjust the temperature to their liking. And with available features like a panoramic sunroof and power-folding second-row seats, the Expedition offers a luxurious driving experience for the whole family.

Towing Capacity

Finally, the 2023 Ford Expedition offers an impressive towing capacity of 9,300 pounds. This makes it perfect for families who like to tow boats, trailers, or other large items. The Expedition's powerful engine and robust chassis make towing a breeze, while features like trailer sway control and an integrated trailer brake controller provide added safety and control.
