2005 FORD EXPEDITION
We needed something bigger for the family. Ford did a good job with this truck. We were comparing this, the Explorer, Chevy/ GMC Tahoe/Yukon and the Chevy/GMC Trailblazer EXT/Envoy XL. I've had a Tahoe, Trailblazer and Envoy, so I knew they were both good but wanted to try something different. This particular truck did need work, but the price reflected it. They fuel mileage is low as usual for a full size truck. Noteable features not offered by GM are the doorlock keypad on the door, cooled seats, and the back up alarm. Ford has dual 6 way power seats but recline and lumbar are manual and lumbar doesn't raise, while GM offers full power. The independent rear suspension offers better handling than GM.
