The Expedition is a great vehicle for me and I plan to keep it for another 100k miles. The rearview camera system is now integrated to show the video feed through the navigation screen instead for the rearview mirror, however, the rearview mirror is still used to show images on Expeditions not equipped with the navigation system. It is similar to the , especially in Limited 2005—present or King Ranch 2005—2017 high-end trims; both of which were introduced for the 2005 model year. Optional interior features include an advanced cargo manager, an enhanced active park assist system, a lane-keeping system, pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, Pro Trailer Backup Assist, and adaptive cruise control. Prior to 2009, the Ford Expedition was assembled at the in previously home to the Ford Bronco. A default off-road program is automatically selected and reprograms the , engine control , and turns off AdvanceTrac's and roll stability control safety systems for off-road use. The four-wheel electronic traction control system brake differential locking control was recalibrated to take into account the new V-6's higher torque output and earlier torque delivery.
As with previous model years, the suspension system could be had with adaptive pneumatic air-ride springs. Now it has 200,000 miles. This keeps the Expedition running straight and level while towing, and at night helps to keep the Expedition's headlamps from blinding oncoming traffic. Bundled with the electronic stability control system is functions at all wheels for Expeditions with four-wheel drive.

We were warned about bear and moose, which some took lightly — until we encountered a grizzly that towered at least a foot over ourExpedition!. The AdvanceTrac electronic stability control for the 2003 model year. The dashboard also received an updated radio and air conditioning controls and revised Gauge Cluster and a Digital Odometer for the first time. The power adjust pedals benefit all drivers with increased seating distance from the steering wheel, increased knee bolster legroom, more comfortable arm positions, better access to console features and more headroom. Nevertheless, underbody obstacle clearance improved by half an inch, and up to two inches under the axle differentials. This feature has particular benefits to shorter drivers, enabling them to sit farther from the steering wheel and can accommodate drivers representing 95 percent of the driving population.
The system works even if two of its drive wheels one front, one rear are completely off the ground. A panoramic vista roof is optional. The four-wheel electronic traction control system brake differential locking control remains active and continues to function as normal. I only hope the newer models are as reliable! The four-door body is constructed from alumimium-alloy, while the frame is constructed from boron steel. Among the new features that have been incorporated into the fourth generation Expedition includes a 360-degree camera and park assist system that can make parking much easier, along with optional safety features that will use both camera and radar technology, and include automatic braking, lane-keep assist, active cruise control, and blind-spot monitors.
The Two High mode for automatic full-time ControlTrac four-wheel drive equipped models was dropped leaving only Auto, Four High lock and Four Low lock modes. I drove for 5 hours to see it and found it was a filthy mess. Having a gasket fail on a customers car that you installed is never a good thing. A heavy duty engine radiator and two-speed automatic four-wheel-drive with neutral towing capability are optional. When the tranny went out I tried 4 different mechanics, practically begging them to tell me it was worth it to fix, but they all said it was time to move on.
All-new thinner headlamps were added, in addition to an all-new front bumper with oversized lower air intake. The doors shut with that solid sound. Last year model for the U222. Another drawback is just the shear size of the Expedition makes it hard to maneuver around town and a parking lot. The V8 engines offered on the previous generation were carried over, but not without major changes and improvements. Minimum running lowest point ground clearance increases by a full inch, from 8. There was just no negative to it, except maybe the 14 miles per gallon average.
Moreover, the Explorer's Terrain Management System has 4 four drive modes, while the Expedition has 7 seven drive modes, not including the 3 three 4x4 system direct drive modes. The Expedition will be available with selectable automatic full-time four-wheel drive that routes torque through a two-speed dual range with electronic locking center multi-disc differential. I'm an appraiser so I live in my car, and there was room for everything without looking trashed. The reliability has been outstanding. My mechanic said I had some bad seals, too costly to fix. With 5% of vehicles over 200K miles, it landed the 4 spot in a 2016 study by listing the top 10 longest-lasting vehicles. Great transportation ride for family with kids! Visited landmarks included where American aviator was lost, and the birthplace of Russian explorer.
Although the rear passenger doors were widened, the aft wheel well trim still doesn't cut into them. In addition to the new engine, Expedition received an updated 6-speed 6R80 SelectShift intelligent gearbox with manual shift mode. The only major repair it a new alternator at 160k. When I've run the Murano into the ground I'm going back to an Expedition. Do Not Buy From Here.
