2007 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
I've leased a new Expedition every 3 years for the last 12 years. The '04 model was Ford's first real effort to improve the overall performance and quality. However, the '07 is outstanding. The ride is the most significant change. Also, the availability of options is very impressive. I now have heated & AC seats, and a remote up/down rear lift gate. The power rear folding seats are worth their weight in gold and the center console shifter is far more convenient. The car has a firmer, tighter, and more stable ride. Allegedly the car has thicker windows and noise suppression metal. I definitely believe it's true. The interior is much quieter while driving than the '04 model.
In-line adapter for iPod. Sounds perfect. The remote liftgate is a gem. My wife loves the heated and cooled front seats - it really works well. For me the ride and handling are most impressive.
The gas mileage is the first issue that comes to mind. However, I'm not sure there is much you can do about it and maintain the same weight, ride and torque. Their is only ONE interior color for the '07 expedition. It's a combination of tan seats and a black interior. No folding side mirrors option.
