2008 Ford Expedition EL SSV Fleet 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
With a 20 month old son and twins on the way, my wife and I began searching for a vehicle that could easily accommodate our growing family and special needs. We needed a vehicle that had three sets of LATCH points in the same row as well as accommodate a Triple Stroller without using up all the cargo space. The Expedition EL was the only vehicle to do so. We now have our three sons in the middle row bench, all secured by LATCH. With the smaller portion of the third row folded to accommodate our stroller, we still have the ability to carry two more people back there in comfort along with all our stuff! Brilliant packaging job by Ford.
Kid friendly seating, comfortable third row, power fold third row, power hatch, camera in rear view mirror, smooth shifting and ride.
Weight of the truck hampers acceleration, so more power would be appreciated, especially for merging and passing. The 5.4L engine has been offered on other products with a supercharger; maybe this can be a viable option for the EL.
