Loading Comparison...


The Ford Expedition hasn’t had a serious redesign in more than a decade, yet it continues to thrive. It has made adjustments along the way that help, including replacing its V8 with a twin-turbo V6 in 2015, while changing the infotainment system to make it less frustrating, and making adaptive suspension available. It can work like a full-size van, as it can seat eight people. Changes for 2017 are not significant.

The Expedition comes in a standard length, and the Expedition EL (extra long) with a massive wheelbase of 131 inches and an overall length that’s 15 inches more, seen in the rear fenders and glass. It offers more cargo space and easier access for the third row. Naturally it’s harder to maneuver around town, but, despite being one of the biggest vehicles available, its handling on the road is manageable.

We think the Expedition is a bit better than the GM utility vehicles, including the Escalade, Yukon, Tahoe and Suburban. The turbocharged V6 is impressive, making 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque that comes at low rpm; this greatly helps with towing up to 9200 pounds. This land yacht will accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in less than six seconds. And sound good doing so, throughout the smooth shifts from the 6-speed automatic.

And if you’re easy on the throttle, it will get 21 miles per gallon on the highway. At least that’s what the EPA says. We haven’t seen numbers higher than 17.8 mpg, and that was on a long highway run. For unknown reasons, the mileage in Ford’s EcoBoost engines hasn’t been meeting the EPA’s test scores. The EPA gives the Expedition 15 City, 21 Highway, and 18 Combined miles per gallon with rear-wheel drive, a touch less with the heavier EL model, and a second touch less with available four-wheel drive.

The Expedition gets five stars from the NHTSA in crash tests, despite only three stars in rollover scores, not surprising given its height and size (the four-wheel drive models get four stars in rollover). The IIHS hasn’t yet tested it. Side airbags, rearview camera, and trailer sway control are standard, with blind-spot monitors available, but no available adaptive cruise control or forward-collision warnings with automatic braking, not even with the expensive Platinum model, even though it’s considered to be like a Lincoln Navigator.


Ford Expedition comes in XLT, Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum. A stripped-down base model can be ordered from the dealer.

Standard equipment on the 2017 Expedition XLT 2WD ($46,225) includes power features, fabric upholstery, adjustable pedals, rear climate control; Ford’s Sync system with Bluetooth audio streaming, a USB port, auxiliary audio jack, and AppLink; satellite radio, steering-wheel audio controls, rear parking sensors, cruise control, flip-up liftgate glass, and 18-inch all-terrain tires. Optional equipment includes leather, power front seats, power-folding third-row seats, power tailgate, and a towing package.

Expedition Limited ($55,370) adds the Sync 3 infotainment system that is much quicker and understandable. It comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, voice command capability, and two USB ports. The Limited also gets automatic climate control, perforated-leather front seats with heating and ventilation, heated second-row outboard seats, a power-folding third-row seat, woodgrain trim, remote start, front parking sensors, keyless ignition, and 20-inch wheels and tires. Options include navigation with HD radio, a power sunroof, and power-deploying running boards.

Expedition King Ranch ($59,940) gets things like leather that feels and smells like a baseball glove, and like that glove it shows its scuffs and requires maintenance. Also a power liftgate, remote start, and 20-inch wheels. Options include 22-inch wheels; load-leveling rear suspension; sunroof; power running boards; and second-row bucket seats.

Expedition Platinum 4WD ($66,347) gets adaptive shocks and 22-inch polished aluminum wheels. Options include wine-colored Brunello leather with tuxedo stripes and French seams, seven-color LED ambient lighting, Ford truck apps for towing, 700-watt Sony sound system with 10 speakers, DVD entertainment.

Ford’s programmable MyKey system allows parents to program a speed limiter, speed alert chimes, and additional belt reminders.


The Expedition’s square-ish profile hasn’t changed much in 15 years, but its edges and details have kept pace with modernization, to soften it. It has a bluff grille with big chrome bars, and a thick chrome strip across the back that visually lowers it.


The Sync 3 infotainment system, now in its third year, is frustrating, but not so much as the previous version was in 2014, if that’s any consolation. However it still looks like it came from 2014, if not earlier, as its 8.0-inch screen is plunked right in the top center of the dash. Two 4.2-inch color screens flank the gauges behind the steering wheel.

A clean centerstack brings some cohesion to the rest of the instrumentation. The wood and metallic trim give it a look of quality. There’s still a lot of black plastic on the dash and door panels, but the fit is generally good.

The seats are wide and well cushioned, and the seating position works for smaller drivers, thanks to power adjustable pedals, telescopic steering wheel, and a high driving position.

Leg and knee room is good in the second row, and the third row can hold grownups for short trips, although access isn’t graceful or even easy. It can be power folded on some models, and a power liftgate is also available, so the cargo-loading potential is vast. Especially with the EL, having 20 cubic feet behind the third row, and a total of 130.8 cubic feet behind the first row. That’s a lot of cargo. Even the regular-wheelbase Expedition has 108 cubic feet.

Visibility is a solid step ahead of the big Cadillac Escalade or GMC Yukon, with window glass that is tall and unobstructed by pillars or headrests.

Driving Impressions

With the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, you’ll never miss the virtues of the trusty old 5.7-liter V8. It’s also used in the F-150 truck and other Fords. It makes 365 horsepower and growls. The power isn’t explosive, but this tall and heavy SUV is truly quick.

The chassis is aged, but the Expedition with active suspension handles better than most of its rivals. The electric power steering is quick and sharp. The yacht is easy to drive because the steering is also light and precise.

We haven’t driven a 2017 Expedition with the standard suspension, although older models did a good job absorbing bumps with none of the hopping that often comes with solid axles.

The active suspension has normal, comfort and sport modes. The ride is composed. The continuously adjusting dampers filter the bumps and provide a ride that’s almost luxury.

The Expedition’s stability control is programmed to limit instability while towing, by applying the brakes and reducing the power when sensors detect trailer sway.


The Expedition is a bit better than its GM rivals. The 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 has awesome torque and acceleration, and will make you forget the V8. The six-speed automatic is smooth. The cargo capacity, especially with the longer EL, is vast. The seat and pedals adjust to make shorter drivers comfortable. The third row works for adults on short trips. Expect 18 mpg if you’re lucky.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
