Making its public debut in 1997, the Ford Expedition was introduced to the automobile world as a full size sport utility vehicle that was crafted by the Ford Motor Company. It had its last redesign in 2003. It takes up the niche between the smaller Ford Explorer, and the halted Ford Excursion. The Ford Expedition offers a seating capacity of a maximum of nine passengers. It is also considered to be similar to the Lincoln Navigator. The Ford Expedition has become a popular vehicle because it cleanly reflects consumers’ demand for a vehicle that has a family-friendly interior, lots of cargo space, and has a high towing capacity.
The changes done to the Expedition on its last make over were noticeable and were quite substantial. Drivers of the Ford Expedition could drive behind the wheel in comfort without noticing fatigue. The ride and the handling of this vehicle had greatly improved, along with a more responsive steering and more stability on the open road. This kind of driving experience provided this vehicle a great shot at beating its competitors. What were added up for the Ford Expedition includes a power third-row seat that disappears with the press of a button thus leaving a large and perfectly flat cargo area. It also displays a new interior. Along with that, a new small center seat on the second row slides forward to give front-seat parents access to a small child. Safety has certainly not been misplaced for the Ford Expedition comes with an enhanced safety feature – a lower front bumper, an optional safety curtain specially designed to protect occupants in a roll over, adjustable pedals, a tire-pressure monitor, and advanced electronics that were crafted and designed so as to help assist the driver in maintaining control.
The Ford Expedition holds a choice of engines. The list includes the standard 4.6 liter V8 with 232 horsepower capability, and the 5.4 liter V8 that produces 291 horsepower. It has also been made available in two trim levels which are the XLT and the Eddie Bauer.
The changed Ford Expedition looks bigger and bolder than the first Expedition crafted. Giving this new one a well-planted stance is its track that has been widened to nearly two inches. It also gives a towering presence for its hood has been raised to a height of four inches more. Its bumpers are integrated more smoothly into the overall design. It also has door handles that are the full-grip kind that makes it easier for occupants to grab and take hold of them. As per the Ford Expedition’s interior, it is entirely covered with a metallic satin finish. It also contains controls that are sturdy so as to provide an easy grip. Space is something that the Ford Expedition has a great luxury of. It contains roomy pockets in all four doors and these provide space for a 20-ounce bottle.
