2008 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
Everything you'd expect in an American full sized SUV. Solidly built, exceptional comfort, surprisingly nimble (especially in parking lots)all at a decent price. Our first choice would have been a Mercedes GL 450 at $64,000. Almost $30,000 more than the XLT, and the XLT was far more comfortable. The only problem with the XLT is the poor MPG. 13.5 MPG for an average is not unexpected, just getting to be expensive. 19 MPG on the highway is OK, but not good enough. With that said, overall our family loves this truck. Comfort, safety and quality sums it up.
Comfort, and solid build quality, easy to park. Good price. Assembled in Michigan.
Ford has got to put more into improving fuel economy.
