Overview Information

The Expedition is a full-size SUV with ample room and cargo hauling capability. It is sold in two lengths: Expedition and Expedition EL. The shorter Expedition competes with the Chevrolet Tahoe, while the Expedition EL compares with the Chevrolet Suburban. Ford also sells a variant of the Expedition as the Lincoln Navigator. Inside the Expedition there are three rows of seats for up to 8 passengers. The standard 5.4l V8 engine can tow up to 9200 lbs. when properly equipped. Although full-size SUVs have become popular as family haulers, their only real advantage is the higher tow ratings. Full-size SUVs with truck underpinnings are robbed of interior space with the body mounted over the frame. Modern FWD-biased SUVs like the latest Explorer offer similar interior room with improved maneuverability, cargo capacity and fuel efficiency for far less money.
