2005 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Great improvement over previous '99 Eddie Bauer owned. Ride is a bit stiffer, but feels like a sportier drive. Handling and turning radius is excellent for a vehicle of this size. The new 5.4 3V is much torquier than the old engines and can pull a moderate hill at 1200 RPM without downshifts. Mileage is not bad on the highway; we get 19-20 mpg on trips if we keep at 70 or below. Tows our 23' boat/trailer at 7,000 lbs. with ease getting about 12-14 mpg highway. Other than a window rattle which the dealer fixed with a new weather strip, no problems, and very reliable so far at 15k. Great truck!

Best Features

Independent rear suspension, DVD, power fold /flat rear seats, engine torque, backup sensors, individual and rear climate control.

Worst Features

Suspension could be a bit more forgiving (adjustable would be nice!). Interior door arm rests were nicer, more comfortable on older models.
