2015 Ford Expedition | new car review
Brilliant value for money.
Its sheer size could make navigating tight parking spots a little daunting.
The 2015 Ford Expedition has bold looks to match its size. Having paid a visit to the plastic surgeons, the Expedition now flaunts a protruding grille, strips of LEDs, and much more tasteful use of chrome all around. While the outgoing model resembled a brick, the improved Expedition is still large, yet, sculpted to look sophisticated.
A neat layout with hard materials and plenty of leather reinstates the Expedition’s sophisticated but tough image. A marriage of silver shading and leather are the gracious hosts that invite you in. And while everything including the seats and controls are a little oversized, it feels just right in a vehicle this large.
The 2015 Ford Expedition is packed with safety features that keep you and 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?
Bidding farewell to the 5.4 litre V8 engine found in its predecessors, the 2015 Ford Expedition houses a 3.5 litre turbocharged V6 engine under the hood. Before you flip out and start making assumptions about how under powered it must be, note that it pushes out 365 horsepower, 570 Nm of torque, and can whizz the behemoth to 100 km/h in just 6.8 seconds.
Wearing a price tag that ranges from AED 145,000 to AED 245,000, the Expedition makes for an extremely sensible purchase, and even more so because of the option to buy it as a standard or extended wheelbase model. With no shortage of seating or storage space and a sufficiently powerful engine upfront, the Expedition proves to offer fantastic value for money.
