Family Matters: The Used Ford Expedition Max

on

If you have kids, then you know just how fast they can outgrow their clothes and shoes. The same applies to your family vehicle. You think it’ll work when you buy it, then bam! Theres barely enough room for you to squeeze into the driver’s seat because of all the kids and their crap. So why not buy a family vehicle that you can grow into? Well, say hello to the Ford Expedition Max! 

What is the Ford Expedition Max? 

In technical terms, the used Ford Expedition Max is a big honkin’ SUV. It’s about the same size as a used Chevy Suburban (its a foot longer than a standard Expedition), and offers three rows of seats that can accommodate 7-8 passengers, depending on if you get the second row captains chairs or the threeacross bench (those are heated on the used Ford Expedition Max Limited and above). The third row even offers more than enough leg and head room for adults. Plus, there’s even enough room for it to power recline, and both rows can be folded lack from a button handle in the cargo area. 

All right so, there’s enough room for all your people. But what about cargo and towing? Well, there’s storage nooks and bins throughout the cabin. Same with cupholders. If you go thirsty in this rig, youve done something wrong (seriously, tell everybody to get two Big Gulps, because they’ll have someplace to put them).  

As far as stuff room, there’s a gargantuan amount of space behind the third row. Fold it down and you’ll have 57.5 cu-ft of room. Which is equivalent to the total cargo volume of most compact and midsize crossovers. Fold the second row down, and you’ll have 104.6 cu-ft of room. Which is equivalent to most New York City apartments. 

If you have big toys or trailers to pull, opt for a used Expedition Max with the heavy duty trailer  tow package, and you’ll get a bigger radiator to keep the engine cool while you’re towing. 3.73 gears (the higher the number, the more weight you can move from a complete stop) to help you pull up to 9,000 pounds. Youll also get Ford’s trick Trailer Backup Assist system, which allows you to perfectly reverse a trailer by just twisting a knob on the dash that controls a directional guideline on the backup camera screen. Your used Ford Expedition Max will handle the steering inputs for you (that way you/your husband won’t look like an idiot at the boat ramp).

One more thing, the used Ford Expedition Max is a traditional body-on-frame SUV. Not a car based crossover. This means that you can get a genuine 4×4 system with a 2-speed (Hi/Low) transfer case, a locking rear differential (the truck can automatically make both rear wheels spin at the same time for increased traction), 10-inches of ground clearance, and the same terrain management system used in the iconic Ford Raptor. 

Used Ford Expedition Max – Features 

There are four models available, and lots of different sub models and trim packages. So we’re just going to cover the highlights for the main four; the Ford Expedition Max XLT, the Ford Expedition Max Limited, the Ford Expedition Max King Ranch, and the Ford Expedition Max Platinum. Off Lease Only usually has most of these models in stock. And because we only do late-model vehicles, nearly all of the used Ford Expedition Max models on our lots will have extremely low miles and the balance of their original factory warranty. 

Used Ford Expedition Max XLT 

This is essentially the base model, and comes with eight passenger seating, keyless ignition, an 8 inch infotainment screen with the Ford Sync 3 system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and plenty of USB plugs for each row of seats. You also get a power tailgate, a power driver seat, and the rear window even flips up to allow you access to the cargo area. Optional extras included fake leather upholstery, a power front passenger seat, a foot activated tailgate, keyless entry with pushbutton start on the key fob, heated and cooled front seats with memory, power adjusted steering wheel and pedals, multicolored ambient lighting, 110 V household outlets, 20 inch wheels, a glass panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, forward collision warning with automatic emergency breaking, automatic highbeams and wipers. The Ford Expedition Max FX4 added extra off-road goodies like special shocks and skid plates. 

Used Ford Expedition Max Limited 

This was the more common luxury themed model, which came with automatically retracting running boards, heated second row seats, and a 12 speaker B&O audio system. Popular options included 22 inch wheels, an adaptive suspension, a 360° camera system, LED headlamps, a self parking system, leather upholstery, and rear-seat entertainment. 

Used Ford Expedition Max King Ranch 

The Ford Expedition Max King Ranch pretty much gets all the optional extras available on the Limited, and adds in unique exterior trim, and special leather upholstery with the King Ranch logo embroidered in the seats. The leather that they use feels very high-quality, and the execution of this popular luxury model is extremely well done. 

Used Ford Expedition Max Platinum 

This topspec long wheelbase Expedition gets pretty much all the optional extras up to this point, along with better quality leather, real wood trim, massaging front seats, leather trim on the dash and door panels, active noise cancellation which uses the stereo to pipe in opposing sound waves to cancel out exterior noise intrusions. And oh yeah, this model gets a 25 hp increase.

Power 

Speaking of power, the standard Ford Expedition Max powerplant is the now widely used 3.5L EcoBoost twin turbo V6 that makes a very healthy 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. The Ford Expedition Max Platinum makes 400 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. All that grunt is sent through a 10 speed automatic, and most owners on the Internet claim you can get around 18 – 19 MPG in real world driving on premium (of course, your results may vary). 

Used Ford Expedition Max: Yes or No? 

On paper, a used Ford Expedition Max is just a big 3-row SUV that competes in the same field as the Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon XL. But in reality, it is extremely well executed, and is a smart-money alternative to the long wheelbase versions of the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator (seriously, with the right options, it is that nice). And speaking of smart money, Off Lease Only offers all of the aforementioned vehicles for thousands of dollars less than other big box’ automotive retailers.
