Review Summary:

Bigger is better! In the family SUV segment at least. Where the name of the game is “one size should fit all” and there’s a 2 ton minimum weigh-in to qualify. The first runner up is the 3rd generation which has been roaming around the Gulf desserts since 1997 and offers a lot for 2014.

Pros

Practicality
Value for money

Cons

No panoramic roof

Looks

The 2014 Ford Expedition has bold looks to match its size. Standing higher than most sedans, the intimidating front end is home to a horizontal grille with large openings. Along the sides you’ll find windows so massive, it’s almost as if the passengers in the cabin are being showcased.

Feels

A neat layout with hard materials throughout to reinstate its toughness. A marriage of silver shading and leather are the gracious hosts that invite you in. One of the best parts is the almost bird’s eye view you get from towering over other cars. Designed to fit 3 people, the 3rd row seats are the most spacious of its class with 37.7” of leg room. Passengers in the middle row seats won’t be disappointed either as they can indulge themselves in luxuries such as reclining their seats, and adjusting climate controls.

Engineering

This Ford is packed with safety features that keep your loved ones unscathed during unpredictable circumstances. Fitted with a canopy of airbags throughout and a roll stability control, it ensures you that you’re in safe hands.

What’s on offer?

The car is loaded from bumper to bumper with options like heated and cooled front seats, touch GPS and media, back up camera, full canopy airbags for your loved ones in the 3rd row, independent suspension, a towing capacity of triple its weight, and seats than fold down flat enough for a second Expedition to squeeze in.

Summing it…

 It’s an exceptional family car that offers every luxury and practicality that one would expect from a large SUV. Its base price of AED 120,000 is AED 70,000 cheaper than the base Land Cruiser, although its long wheelbase doesn’t make it the best hill climber, it’s still a very capable off-roader that comes at an even greater value for money, because for every penny spent, is a dollar earned.
