The full-size Expedition SUV, which is built on the same platform as the Ford F-150 truck, was new for 2007, with a host of new standard gear including standard side-impact airbags and a three-row Safety Canopy rollover detection system with stability control.
The Expedition also comes in an extended-wheelbase Expedition EL offering 14.8 inches of additional overall length and 130.8 cubic feet of cargo space - including 24 cubic feet more behind the third-row seat than the standard Expedition. The Expedition EL rides on a 131-inch wheelbase, 12 inches longer than the standard Expedition.
All versions are powered by 310-horsepower 5.4-liter V-8 engine teamed up with a new six-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or four-wheel drive.
For 2008 a King Ranch edition returns to the lineup with special trim and a unique leather interior. A rearview camera system is optional, as are 18-inch chromed wheels on XLT models. A keyless entry keypad, electrochromic rearview mirror, heated power mirrors, auxiliary A/C, an overhead console, illuminated visors, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are now standard on all Expedition models. And on Limited and King Ranch Expeditions, the following items are standard as well: power adjustable pedals, power rear-quarter windows, a universal garage door opener, and a reverse sensing system.
The Expedition also offers an optional touch-screen DVD-based navigation with 6.5-inch color touch screen and voice activation, and a 340-watt AM/FM audio system with MP3 capability and in-dash six-CD changer with six premium speakers, plus a subwoofer. An iPod jack is standard.
