2008 Ford Expedition Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
This is the first Ford I have ever owned and, in fact, the first domestic car since I was a kid. We tested every large SUV from the QX 56, to the Denali and Sequoia. The Expedition was the best priced and best balanced of the entire bunch. The independent rear suspension does make a difference in handling in comparison to the GM Yukon/Tahoe variants. The interior is well thought out and, while there are some rough edges, no where near the interior disaster of the new Toyota Sequoia. If you have a large family and need to tow, this vehicle serves its mission well.
Power fold rear seats (GM--get with the program). Cooled front seats.
Interior plastics are not up to GM standard. Kids DVD player intrudes on rear vision. B Pillar creates significant blind spot. Can we have a diesel or a more modern V8?
