2009 Ford Expedition EL SSV Fleet 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
We bought this truck to tow our boat and travel trailer.
Overall it is a very capable tow vehicle, the extended wheelbase and weight help ensure a stable ride when towing large trailers.
The ride is very comfortable, so this is a good vehicle for long road trips.
There is a ton of interior space, plenty of room for people and luggage.
When both rows of passengers seats are folded flat you can fit 4x8 sheets of plywood/drywall flat on the floor with no problem.
Gas mileage is what I expected for a vehicle this size, love the FlexFuel option as we are in the midwest and E85 is usually much cheaper than gasoline.
Ford markets this as a tow vehicle but fails to provide a telescoping trailer tow mirror option for it.
The standard mirrors just aren't enough when towing wide trailers.
I had to buy mirror extensions, would much prefer to have telescoping mirrors like the F-series trucks.
Ford should also offer a diesel engine option for this truck.
The PowerStroke V8 would probably be overkill, but a 6 cylinder diesel would get great (relatively) gas mileage, making this an excellent tow vehicle.
