Customer Review Summary for Ford Expedition

A good choice when we downsized

2014 Ford Expedition Kenneth Bostick - Pie Town, NM 10/25/2015

This replaced our 2000 Excursion v-10. We were to get a V-8 with enough power and towing capacity, and four wheel drive like we had in the Excursion. The only down side is that the Expedition is 20 inches shorter. There are times when we miss that extra 20 inches.

1998 Buyer Beware

1998 Ford Expedition SoaringPilot - Atlanta, GA 11/24/2006

Overall the truck has been very useful and has a ton of room in it. The engine is strong and performs well. The problem is the reliability and costs to maintain. Fords are supposed to have a reputation of unmatched reliability and longevity...and that may be correct if you keep pouring money in it. The differential had to be rebuilt, the heater core had to be replaced (and there is still rust in the system). The cooling is starting to die and to top it off, at 140,000 miles (with less than 1 yr old plugs) a spark plug blew out of the engine requiring a $3600 repair. After researching, this is not an isolated incident and not very rare at all in any of the Ford Triton engines. Just do a search on FORD SPARK PLUG PROBLEMS and see what you find. It's a great truck for the room and performance...but gets a big "F" for reliability.

Great car, I wish I would have bought new.

2007 Ford Expedition Travis - Jupiter, FL 07/11/2014

Comfortable, reliable and drives nice

Ford Expedition Overview

The Ford Expedition is a great option if you have a large family that likes to camp, or if you need a trailblazing, full-size SUV. The Expedition takes design cues from Ford's wide range of trucks, and its large frame houses a comfortable and spacious cabin for eight adults. If you're searching for an SUV with enough versatility and grit to approach many off-road and towing situations, then this is a great choice for you.

Ford Expedition History

Introduced in 1996, Ford developed the Expedition as an SUV with truck vibes. Mid-1999, this model received a facelift. In 2003, the second generation Ford Expedition was introduced with a new independent suspension and additional engine options. On the outside, the Expedition received an all-new front end, grille work, headlamps, and tail lamps. Towing capacity also increased in this model. The third generation Ford Expedition was introduced in 2007. This version of the vehicle constituted a refreshed, more stylish design.

How It Drives

The Ford Expedition's driving experience, despite what its large size may imply, is extremely pleasant and easygoing for drivers and passengers alike. While the Expedition may take up lanes in narrow city streets, the steering is precise and easy to handle. However, if you're packed with passengers and heavy cargo, a fully-loaded Expedition may not be able to accelerate as quickly with all the weight. Thankfully, Ford offers a more powerful engine as an optional upgrade in case you expect some heavy hauling. Plus, the stronger engine helps facilitate the handling of any off-road situation.

Used Ford Expedition Value

As a full-size SUV, despite a slower rate of acceleration, the Ford Expedition competes strongly with the likes of the Chevrolet Tahoe or the Nissan Armada. The current Ford Expedition model is a result of a major refresh in 2007, though overall functionality and passenger changes have been minimal. For increased affordability without sacrificing performance, models from 2003 to 2006 are comparable to those of more recent years.

Design & Performance

  • Ford Expeditions are available in all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive.
  • The most current Expedition model can tow up to 9,200 lbs.
  • The base-level Ford Expedition XLT has full-power accessories and a comfortable cabin.
  • The Ford Expedition Limited builds upon the XLT with leather seats that feel comfortable and refined.
  • The Ford Expedition King Ranch improves upon the leather with nicer leather and wood accents as well as two-tone paint.

Powertrain & Engine

For day-to-day use, the base 4.6L V8 engine should be more than enough for the Ford Expedition. For anyone looking for an Expedition with a bit more power, Ford does have a 5.4L V8 engine as an upgradeable option. In base XLT models, the Expedition pairs its V8 engines with a six-speed automatic transmission. If you prefer to drive manual, Ford also offers a six-speed manual transmission.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

  • The Ford Expedition is offered in two lengths: standard and EL.
  • It is built with durable, sturdy parts to frame a large body.
  • All Expedition models carry up to eight adults in three rows of seats.
  • This SUV has acres of cargo space.
  • Higher trim levels have more comfortable leather seats.
