Experience with my Expediton
By Hank Wacker on
Vehicle2000 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD
ReviewEverything, including the electronics
The ride was like a luxury car and gas
milage on the highway was a consistent
17mpg. However, when I towed my trailer
the mileage and power went drastically
down. The 5.4 engine is great, however
the rear axle 373 can't handle the
load. I suggest that if one wants to
tow a 6000 lb. trailer, buy a power
stroke diesel (like i just did).
Towing with a 5.4/373 axle is not meant
for towing much weight (I found). I
needed to bring up my rmp's to abuot
4000 in 1st gear (automatic) and then
go up the big grades at 35 mph.
Best FeaturesThe captains' chairs are superior and very comfortable. The automatic selection for driver 1 and driver 2 is very convienient. The 6 change CD player worked great and we bought an extra changer at the Ford store to carry extra cd's with us on long trips
Worst FeaturesI had wished that the vehicle had an option of a beefed up engine, drive train and 410 axle for towing. The overdrive will assist in good gas mileage when not towing.
