The Ford Expedition is neither too big nor too small. In fact, it stands in the middle of the extremely large Ford Excursion and the smaller Ford Explorer. And for those who don't want their SUVs to be too big yet equally powerful with the larger ones, the Ford Expedition would be the perfect option.
The Ford Expedition is an SUV manufactured and sold by Ford from 1997 to the present. It is a full size SUV but its actual size comes in between the mid-size Explorer and the full-size Excursion. It was aimed to compete with the Chevrolet Suburban especially after the Ford Excursion was dropped in ford's line-up of SUVs.
When it was introduced in 1997, the Ford Expedition came equipped with either a 4.6 liter V8 that outputs 215 hp or a 5.4 liter V8 that produces 230 hp. Both engines were upgraded in 1999 to output more power. Current models of the Ford Expedition are equipped with a 5.4 liter SOHC V8 engine that outputs 300 hp of power at 5,000 rpm and 365 lb-ft of torque at 3,750 rpm. Standard transmission is a 4-speed automatic with overdrive.
Ever since the Ford Expedition was introduced in the market, it has established a name as a trend setter in the SUV department. The Ford Expedition is indeed a better alternative to the ordinary full-size SUV. It is far more equipped and far more comfortable inside compared to its GM and Chevrolet rivals. Also, in a much smaller space, it can haul the same number of passengers that the Ford Excursion can carry and offers almost the same load space. It is also equipped with powerful engines to make it as powerful as trucks larger than it is.
Overall, the Ford Expedition can be called the ideal SUV—in size, power and comforts. However, just like any other vehicle, there are things you can do to make it perform even better, or at least keep it in its top shape. Regular check-ups and maintenance would help a lot in keeping the Ford Expedition at its best. Using high quality Ford Expedition parts each time you would replace some of its parts is also essential in making it perform better.
