2011 Ford Expedition XLT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.4L 8cyl 6A)
Thought I would never buy a Ford again but buying a travel trailer and needing the perfect tow vehicle made me check out the Expedition.
Am I glad I did.
Roomy, comfortable, great features, good ride, and drives like a big, solid hunk of metal on all road surfaces.
Stable in wind, good on wet surfaces and in the mountains.
Get the 3.73 rear end if you want to tow and get better acceleration with no mpg penalty.
The nav system is quite good as is the sound system and flexibility of options.
So far, I could not be more pleased.
Oh yeah, folding power 3rd seat makes for easy loading and extra passenger space.
Perfect tow vehicle.
Ride, stability, towing capacity, nav system, sound system, room, folding 3rd row seats, rear backup camera and sensors, power, decent acceleration, ok gas mileage for a large SUV.
Seat cushions a tad short, dead pedal for left foot, better instruction manuals, Ford dealers still hassle w/extras during buying experience (paint sealant, undercoating, window tinting, etc.).
