2007 Ford Expedition | new car review

Posted on Jun 19, 2009 by

The new sets yet again the benchmark this year, offering the kind of capability for hauling people and cargo that can only come from a full-size SUV. The new 2007 and all-new Expedition EL extended length model deliver a fresh design and best-ever capability and comfort in class developed specifically for those core SUV customers.

Expedition’s new design, inspired by the best-selling Ford F-Series truck, signals big improvements in capability, functionality and toughness. And new levels of interior refinement, flexibility and quietness change the game in Expedition’s favour among discriminating full-size SUV customers.

For full-size SUV customers who want even more cargo-carrying capability, Ford has extended its Expedition lineup with the new 2007 Expedition EL. With 14.8 inches of additional overall length, Expedition EL delivers 130.8 cubic feet of cargo space – including 24 cubic feet more behind the third-row seat than the already spacious Expedition.

Expedition EL is unique from the B-pillar back with its own floor pan, one-piece body side, running boards, rear fascia, roof rack, rear quarter glass, one-piece headliner and quarter panel trim. The second-row doors are also unique to improve the ingress and egress to both second and third rows which is aided impeccably by the flip and tumble second row seats.

The 2007 Expedition delivers a new level of interior comfort, refinement and quality. For example, the seats have been redesigned from the floor up with improved contours, larger bolsters, softer cushions and upgraded materials to provide increased comfort on long trips.

The Expedition comes powered by Ford’s tough truck-proven 5.4-litre Triton V8 which has been tuned to balance refinement and muscle. Rated at 335 horsepower and 332 Nm of torque, Expedition can tow up to 9,200 pounds, thanks to producing 85 per cent of its torque at only 1,500rpm. The V8 is mated to a new standard 6-speed automatic transmission with manual shift capability for those who like fiddling around with the gearbox.
