This is a great SUV. We'd been looking to replace our 2000 Expedition for months when I finally saw a Limited on the road. One simple, but important, selling point for my wife and I are the 10-way power adjustable low-back bucket seats in the front. Unlike all other Expeditions, the Limited has front seats with adjustable headrests (very similar to the Navigator seats) rather than the one-piece seatbacks. Woodgrain on the steering wheel and handle above the glove box along with monochrome leather seats makes for a classy- looking interior. Monochrome exterior with painted mirrors looks great (other Expeditions have black mirrors). Quiet, smooth ride, lots of nice options and excellent safety features.

Ford must be doing something right-- this is my fourth Expedition. My latest is the Limited model. Overall, I love it. It's got more pickup and better gas mileage. The build quality is superb. It's quiet, tight, and handles well for a SUV. However, whoever designed the main instrument cluster should be tested. It's my only sore point in an otherwise outstanding vehicle because it looks cheap and is not in keeping with the rest of the Limited's features. Why won't Ford at least offer Michelin tires as an option? My wife's Lincoln has them and they are much better tires than the Continentals. Even so, I would gladly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a full size SUV.

2wd Limited with Cashmere clearcoat
option (very nice color). Minimal
options -- power rear seats, Homelink,
and limited slip differential. Very
roomy and tall -- this baby is big --
barely fits in the garage. A behemoth -
- but it rules. Handles almost as well
as my Lexus IS300 that I traded (well,
not that good but...not bad either).
And it's plenty fast with the new
300hp V8. I love this thing. By the
way, get the Ford ESP warranty on the
web (Loman Ford) -- don't buy from
dealer (unless you need to finance it).
Various changes for 2005 include revised option packages and trim equipment, a redesigned instrument panel cluster display and a more powerful 5.4L V8. A Limited trim level debuts this year, and includes unique body-color exterior trim, special interior trim and power-adjustable leather seats. A King Ranch package is new this year, and features unique interior and exterior trim, wood interior trim (both real and fake), unique wheels and exclusive leather seating.
