Review of the 1997 Ford Expedition

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Great big truck that can seat up to nine passengers and still fit inside a regular garage. Interior ergonomics are outstanding, and a nice standard equipment list make it competitive with other full-size utes.

  • Cons

    Engine could use a bit more oomph; even the optional 5.4-liter has difficulty accelerating beyond speeds of 70 mph. The transmission could also use some refinement; upshifts are rather abrupt and downshifts should happen a bit quicker.

  • What's New for 1997

    Ford's replacement for the aging Bronco is the all-new Expedition. Based on the 1997 F-150 platform, this full-size sport-utility vehicle is poised to do battle with the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon.
