In Ford's last attempt to address the Chevy Suburban, they created the monstrous Excursion which proved too large and expensive for many. This time around, Ford is following GM's successful strategy creating two different wheelbase lengths. The Expedition EL is a full-size SUV with ample room and cargo hauling capability. The EL model adds over 14 inches to the cargo area of the standard Expedition. An independent rear suspension improves ride and handling, and is a rarity in this segment. The standard 5.4L V-8 is coupled to a 6-speed automatic which is unavailable in all but its most expensive GM competitors. ABS and AdvanceTrac(R) vehicle stability control with Roll Stability Control (RSC) are standard. A Safety Canopy(R) side airbag system is available. Other options include a trailer towing package, Power-Fold(TM) 3rd-row seats, DVD entertainment system, and navigation system.
Model range now includes the range topping King Ranch model.
