The Expedition is a full-size 3-row SUV created by the car manufacturer Ford. It was brought out as a replacement for the rapidly aging Bronco in 1997 and was Ford’s first full-sized SUV that retained four doors throughout its life.
This Expedition was derived from the F-150 platform with the same body and mechanical configuration. It could seat up to 9 people and had a V8 engine up until 2007 after which time Ford changed it to a more economical V6. The Expedition is one of the longest-lasting vehicles on the road to date, with 5% of vehicles running with over 200,000 miles on the clock.
The first generation (also known as UN93) was created by a team headed up by chief engineer Dale Claudepierre and its initial production cost $1.3b. The XLT was the base model which had three rows of seating, illuminated running boards, heated mirrors, a power moon roof and was a full-time automatic 4x4. It offered a pneumatic air suspension as an optional extra which allowed the driver to change the height and ground clearance of the vehicle to accommodate the terrain type.
The second generation (2003) saw the addition of the controversial independent rear suspension with an increased towing capacity (an extra 800lbs). New systems were added here too, to see an improvement on steering, braking and electric features.
A third generation (2007) was built on a new ladder frame with 6-speed intelligent automatic transmission and a 5.4-liter Triton V8 300hp engine.
The further generation was first shown at the Dallas Cowboys training facility in Frisco in 2018. This location was chosen over the more traditional shows like the Chicago Auto Show due to 20% of Expeditions being sold in Texas alone. The four trims were XLT, Limited, Platinum and XL, with the latter only available to rental companies, corporate clients and government agencies.
