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 3.5l turbocharged V6 engine can tow up to 9200 lbs. when properly equipped. Compared to the shorter wheelbase Expedition, the Expedition EL adds some 15 inches of length behind the third row seat, doubling the three-row cargo carrying capability. 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.

What Changed:

The Expedition wears updated front and rear styling. A 3.5l turbocharged V6 engine rated at 365-bhp is now standard. A new Platinum trim level is offered.
