We love to travel in our white Expedition. by Roadrunner from Austin on 08/02/2004. Trim: 2002 Ford Expedition XLT 2WD, Owned 2 years.
Pros: It is a great vacation truck. My wife, dog and I just returned from a 6,000 mile vacation to South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico. The big, comfortable truck makes a 600-mile day a real pleasure. I like the looks of our Expedition--it is the XLT in Sport Package. The same color white grill and the tubular step bars look sporty. After 35,000 miles nothing has gone wrong with it--the only expense has been oil and filter every 3,000 miles. We have had two Brono IIs, three Explorer Sports and now this Expedition. The quality in all have been excellent. Also, I like the solid thud when we close the doors.
Cons: It is not nearly as easy to park in tight places as our Ford Explorer Sport, but I did not expect it to be. The Ford Expedition needs a little more power than the 4.6, which we have. The 05 Expedition with the 301HP 5.4 V8 should make the Expedition close to perfect.
Overall review: We like to take long road vacations, especially in the rocky mountains. The comfortable seats, the comfortable ride and the high seating make the trips all the more fun. And the double 5-star crash ratings help us feel very safe and secure. We buckle the seat belt around the dog crate and our dog seems to feel secure. We get about 17 mpg on the highway with A/C on and about 19 mpg with the A/C off. White is an attractive color and a very cool color during hot summer months.
