Our 3rd generation Expedition!
By fordguy on
2008 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
This Expy makes our 3rd. A gold XLT witht he 4.6 V-8, an black XLT with the bigger V* and this white 08 XLT. The progression and evolution of these vehicles is remarkable. The 08 is a s good as anything from any other manufacturer, including GMC, Chevy, Toyota, Nissan and Honda...and in fact better than them in many ways. The quality is great, features for the price remarkable, ride and handling not at all what we expected, very smooth, quiet and controlled. The V8, as typical for the Expedition, does not feel as peppy as the sound and horsepower would indicate, but it's a trailer pulling mule! Big and barn like inside, comfortable seats, leg room and head room great. Love it!
All of the above, and the price on sale was great, $26,999.00 on ad pretty well equipped. Great stereo CD system, lots of amenites and features.
Come on Ford, take a clue from GM on the engine. Needs to perform better, less drama under acceleration and better fuel mileage. Transmission is wonderful, the engine needs to catch up!
