The 2019 Ford Expedition Max is a family SUV that handles like a lightweight crossover SUV. The ease of handling is chiefly due to the aluminum body panels that lower its weight without reducing the strength of the body.

Like all true SUVs, a rugged truck base is at the foundation of the Max. In fact, Ford modeled the 2018 Ford Expedition aluminum body panels after the famous F-150 truck. However, the Ford Expedition Max takes the Expedition a step further with an extended 131.6-inch width at the wheels and an extra 16.9 cubic feet of cargo space.

All Ford Expedition Max versions come with powerful EcoBoost® engines and a smooth-shifting automatic transmission with 10 speeds. This offers the power of a larger engine and good flow on the road.

The new 2019 Ford lineup of Expedition Max models are all good choices if you live near a city but want a big SUV. The 2018 Ford Max is also the right option if you have a large family or a vacation home in another state.

The large size of the vehicle is the only low point, just like with any roomy SUV. Although you can navigate and park in most lots, the SUV can't access parking garages. Yet, for the class of vehicle, the size is easier to handle than most.

The four-wheel drive feature allows drivers to select a limited-slip differential (LSD) and other details. The LSD helps the Max grip the road and is great for drivers who drive in snow, ice, and mud. There's also a package for people who drive off-road a lot.

The 2019 model is about the same as last year's when it comes to its features and specs.

Exterior Design of the Ford Expedition Max

The new generation Ford Expedition Max comes with a type of running board that moves under the truck when it's not in use. This is a big win for drivers who want to access new features. You can also buy 18- or 20-inch aluminum wheels as an upgrade.

Ford built the 2019 Ford Expedition Max like a motorhome. The Max features about 120 cubic feet of cargo space from the front row to the back. The rear seats in the third row fold flat to hold extra luggage and travel gear. Tall people will fit in any seat without a problem.

The third row of the Platinum edition comes with its own climate control. You can also buy the full leather interior in the Platinum edition, making it easy to keep your new SUV clean and comfortable. It's possible to select bucket seats for the second row for even more comfort.
