Used Ford Expedition Information
Introduced in 1997, the Ford Expedition replaced the popular, but aging Ford Bronco as Ford Motor Company's mid-range sport utility vehicle. It has since grown to become Ford's largest SUV. Based heavily on the Ford F-150 pickup truck, the Expedition offers truck-based utility and strength and the comfort and passenger-centric options of a sport utility.
Up until 2006, the first two generations of the Ford Expedition offered seating for up to nine passengers. From 2007 forward, the front-row bench was dropped in favor of captain's chairs, reducing seating to eight. The first-generation was a full-sized SUV with what, at the time, were considered extremely premium options such as second-row captain's seating, premium leather surfaces, heated side mirrors, dual zone climate control, and more. Built from 1997 to 2002, these Expedition models are still on the road today, often as coveted family go-anywhere machines. Both a 4.6-liter and 5.4-liter V8 engine was offered in this generation.
The second-generation of the Ford Expedition entered showrooms in 2003. A new four-wheel independent long-travel suspension system made this generation of the Expedition the first full-sized, body-on-frame sport utility to offer fully independent suspension. This gave incredible ground clearance for the axles and heightened the Expedition's capability. Although updated, both the engine and transmission options remained largely the same from the first-generation.
A third-generation followed shortly, however, coming to market in 2007. This third-generation of the Ford Expedition showed vastly updated mechanical changes and upgraded interior design. A new high-strength, hydroformed, fully-boxed chassis was employed (also used in the new F-150 pickup of the time) with improved torsional rigidity and better stability. The 5.4-liter Triton V8 was kept, but the smaller 4.6L was replaced with a new and more efficient 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost. A new six-speed transmission was also added to improve economy.
