We love our recently purchased expedition. We just went on a trip with 7 people and luggage. All rode comfortably with plenty of room for all of our luggage inside. The third seat entry on both sides of the vehicle is amazing and well thoughtout. The backup alert feature is fantastic. Works great especially when the cargo area is all filled up. The seats are very comfortable with good support for traveling. The ride is very quiet and comfortable. Built in DVD player was great with headphones. Made the trip go much faster with children. We love that it handles like a car and has the space of a truck. We love the power as well for towing our trailer. It does it all for us!!!
It has a lot of options, the ride is incredible, it has a lot of space as I am a big guy and have three kids and three dogs to haul around and sometimes towing. The gas mileage is great and the turbo is very smooth and responsive. Great safety features for my entire family even for my teens who drive and everything being hands free and can connect to their smart phones. I don't know about cost of maintenance yet but our mechanic checked it out when we purchased it as he does all our used vehicles and was impressed with what Ford has done with this model and year and cost to maintain should be normal. I would like to see one additional thing on this vehicle and that is about a 2 more inches in suspension ground clearance.
I owned a 2001 Expedition that I got up to 180K miles before trading it in on this Expo. The difference in handling and power are astounding. While I loved my 2001, it did wallow a lot on highway on-ramps, and while it had a lot of torque, it sometimes had trouble getting out of its own way. Not so with the 2015 model. The new independent rear suspension makes a huge difference in the handling--there's nearly zero body roll, and very little plow. It's not a sports car by any measure, but for a 3-ton, 20-foot-long truck it certainly can make its way around a twist. The real night and day difference, though, is the engine. The EcoBoost 6 is like a Costco-sized vat of horsepower and torque. It's a pure joy to drive.
