2005 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
We live in Doha, Qatar and needed a large SUV for the wife to drive our two kids and a dog around town and the occasional trip to the desert (and feel safe in verses the very aggressive driving styles encountered here!). After looking at a number of domestic US (Suburban, Durango) and non-US (Nissan, Toyota) SUVs, the Expedition by far offered the greatest value for the money. We love the strong A/C system and room and could not believe you can buy this much SUV for so little money.
Large, big V8, great A/C system front and rear, rides very well for a large truck chassis.
Can always use more power! Consumes large amount of fuel but after all it's only 80 cents a gallon here. Second and third row air bag system should be standard.
