2014 Ford ExpeditionKenneth Bostick - Pie Town, NM10/25/2015
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.
2008 Ford Expedition Review
2008 Ford ExpeditionJesus - Jurupa Valley, CA02/22/2015
I purchased this vehicle with intent of towing a lightweight 27ft travel trailer. Even though I haven't made all the modifications necessary to do that yet, I don't expect to have any issues. The vehicle was so low mileage (until I bought it anyway) that I doubt I will have an issue. I was surprised by the amount of interior room. Now I'm the one who has to drive to lunch all the time (I've had 6 full size adults in the vehicle).
Great Example of an Expedition...I guess?
2012 Ford ExpeditionStuart Engelking - Redington Shores, FL06/19/2016
if someone didn't know much or hadn't had a nicer SUV before, then they would like it. or if they liked driving ford trucks.
But for me, it was boring, top heavy, missing features, slow, hard to take turns, styling hasn't changed since...ever, looks like an Explorer
King Ranch Edition is nice, i guess, only difference is brown saddle leather seats, which feel like sitting on a saddle...on a horse, very hard, not comfortable, i could never get comfortable with the seat/steering wheel location, never felt like the right spot. Every bump you hit left aftershocks that bounced on forever. Had this for 3 months, tried to like it, sometimes did like it, then realized, i just didn't like it...
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.
