Ride and Handling
The Expedition's limited-slip rear axle transfers torque from a slipping wheel to a wheel wîth traction and improves traction on slick or off-road surfaces.
The available four-corner air suspension automatically adjusts vehicle height to match the load. The system also offers a kneel-down position that lowers the step-in height about 1 inch, making it easier to enter and exit. In four-wheel drive low (4L) mode, the system automatically raises the vehicle about 1 inch for better ground clearance.
The standard five-link rear suspension provides a smooth ride and contributes to confident handling and highway stability.
The available load-leveling rear suspension, included on 4x2 models wîth the Trailer Tow Group, uses rear air springs to keep the rear level and the ride smooth under varying road conditions.

Expedition's standard remote keyless entry system has two handheld transmitters and a programmable driver's door keypad that lock and unlock the vehicle without a key. The standard Securilock? passive anti-theft system means that only a key wîth the correctly encoded computer chip can start the vehicle. The system arms automatically when the key is removed from the ignition.
Illuminated entry (standard on Eddie Bauer) turns on interior lights when the remote key fob button is activated, maintaining the lights for 25 seconds, or until the ignition is turned on.
Expedition also has front speed-sensitive interval windshield wipers, a rear-window wiper/washer system and a fuel pump inertia shutoff switch. Expedition's available Reverse Sensing System detects obstacles up to six feet from the rear of the vehicle, making parking easier.Source - Ford
