3/4 Front Glamour 2014 Ford Expedition
, Automotive Editor -

The Ford Expedition is a traditional body-on-frame, full-size SUV capable of hauling around people and gear on highways and off-road. Now in its third generation, the vehicle features an independent multilink rear suspension that contributes to a comfortable ride and overall roominess. The Expedition’s equipment groups offer a wide range of comfort, convenience, capability and appearance options. Expedition EL, an extended length version of the SUV is also offered.

Lincoln recently unveiled a refreshed Navigator for 2015, and that increases the likelihood of a revised 2015 Expedition in the near future. Changes to the Lincoln are largely cosmetic, but include a twin-turbocharged V6 engine that's more powerful than the V8 it replaces. An Expedition will probably see similar updates. If you want to stick with the purchase of a 2014 Expedition, use the imminent arrival of a new model as a bargaining chip.

What's New for 2014

The new mechanical load-leveling system is quieter than the outgoing air-based system, and is new for 2014. The only other changes are minor trim and color options.

Choosing Your Ford Expedition

The 2014 Expedition is a rear-drive vehicle with optional four-wheel drive. Despite its size and weight, it is possible to achieve up to 20 mpg highway. Every Expedition comes with a flex fuel-capable 5.4-liter V8 engine packing 310 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque and a six-speed automatic transmission.

Control Trac four-wheel drive provides sure-footed control on any road: 2H (4x2) for normal, dry on-road driving, 4A (4x4 auto) for all on-road conditions, 4H (4x4) for slippery roads and 4L (4x4 low) for pulling a boat out of the water or at low speeds. Standard trailer sway control, which uses selective braking and engine management to tame unwanted trailer movement, is a great feature.

Ford offers the Expedition in Three Models

Our choice for most buyers is a rear-wheel drive Expedition in mid-level Limited trim. Those who live with inclement weather will want four-wheel drive, however, and we won't argue if springing for the super-luxe King Ranch makes you the coolest cowboy or cowgirl in the neighborhood.

XLT

The entry-level Expedition is loaded with standard features including the Ford Sync system, SiriusXM Radio and the reverse sensing system.

Limited

This model builds on an XLT's equipment level, adding perforated leather upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, a rearview camera and much more. Optional power third-row seats fold flat at the touch of a button.

King Ranch

This upscale SUV offers the full luxury treatment without the conspicuous consumption of a luxury badge. Special touches include seats trimmed in chaparral perforated leather and 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels.

Not unlike the Ford F-150 line of pickups, the Expedition’s option list is long with everything from navigation systems to off-road packages to heavy-duty trailer equipment.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2014 Expedition doesn’t look that much different than its 1997 debut, but it packs a lot more technology for those who desire a traditional full-size SUV.
