Expedition better than Lambda Platform?
By mk10108 on
2008 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
As a life long Toyota buyer. I evaluated all the large SUV's and the Lambda platform and chose the Ford Expedition. Here's why: More leg room and thigh support for driver & passenger. Fold flat 2nd & third row seats. Rear ratio of 3.37 gets equal gas milage with the Lambda AWD. I get 15 city / 22 Highway driving the speed limit. It's a quieter ride. (Dual weather stripping) 6 Sp trans that doesn't hunt for gears. 6000 lb tow is 1500 more lbs than the tow package Lamabda. Adjustable pedals. Interior fit and finish is top notch and better equip for less money. Insurance is less. The Expedition is more capable and a better overall value.
Excellent radio and nav. Handles well, auto rear hatch lift, fold flat rear seats. Commanding view of traffic.
Info gauge should combine Average MPG with economy performance arrows.
