2007 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
First trip was to Kaibab forest cabin northwest of Flagstaff for Christmas/New Year 2007. Four days of cold and 1.5 ft of snow. Truck drove faultlessly over back/forest roads in 4WD auto. Heater and all auto defrosters excellent. Independent rear suspension excellent on rough roads. Excellent driving and handling from and to Phoenix on freeways with full load. Mileage up from Phoenix 16.24mpg; down from Flagstaff 17.3 mpg. Nice creature comforts: satellite radio, and DVD for grandson.
Cargo tiedown points in rear would be quite useful. Floor shift console for driver in position between seats takes up more space, especially storage space in the center console, than more efficient steering column mounted gear select lever. Replace plastic bumper covers with more durable metal.
