The surprising ride...
By Emerson Biggans on


2001 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 4A)


I love this vehicle. After test driving 3 other Eddie Bauer Expeditions (two '02's and one '98 model), I settled on the '01 XLT because of its nearly identical options package and $10,000 less price tag. The most surprising thing about the Expedition 4x4 is the fact that it rides like a luxury car, handles like a much smaller vehicle than it actually is, and has outstanding traction (nothing stops this thing). The only thing I could ask for is a little firmer shift from the 4 speed auto-transmission. But then again, I am partial to 400+ horsepower vehicles, and I guess it's not really bad for a bone stock family ride (my 3 daughters and my son love it).

Best Features

Traction, acceleration, comfort, room for the whole family COMFORTABLY, and the black with charcoal leather interior makes for one nice truck.

Worst Features

A little better fuel mileage would be nice, but the power is worth the couple of MPG less.
