The latest full size SUV market continues to do well. Why did I say so? Because despite of the increasing gas price, there still someone or even family out there that appreciate, and need comfortable room, towing and off-road efficiency that only a full-sized truck-based SUV can provide. Pioneering this segment is the Expedition from Ford for it offers big improvements in comfort, safety and control. Moreover, the big power train change is the addition of Ford six-speed automatic transmission, which offers significant gains in both performance and economy. On the other hand, the 5.4 liter, three valve-per cylinder V8 engine, rated at 300 horsepower and 365 pound feet of torque, it still the same event though it delivers more than enough power and torque. The expedition offers more precise handling in riding on a redesigned system. It remains a big vehicle and demands you respect it as such, but it provides best and efficient steering response, controllability and general composure. In addition, the Expedition also highlights the standard safety features through airbags and custom auto parts everywhere. It also comes equipped with Ford’s traction and stability control system, Advance Trac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) The expensive interior now comes into realistic interior for it has enough room for everybody even tall or short. A large cargo area can be achieved with split folding second and third row seats. More features make it easy to see why many people still look up to the Expedition.
