New Car Review: 2010 Ford Expedition

  By Bob Plunkett  

Lincoln2 The pedal goes down and the power comes up quickly in a stretched edition of Expedition, the full-size sport-utility vehicle from Ford.

For the models of 2010, Ford has forged two versions -- a standard-length Expedition with 119-inch wheelbase and the stretched EL ("extended length") edition with a foot-long wheelbase extension and massive room in the seven-passenger cabin including 24 cubic feet of extra space in the cavernous cargo bay. The EL stretch not only brings more rear room but better backseat access with rear doors that swing out wider to open.

 It looks muscular in a tall stance with a squarish prow, curvy ripples on each side arching around wheelwells and large dual-beam headlamp clusters on front corners flanking a vast three-bar grille.Overall, it's an eye-catching design of crisp angles and complex curves blending to provide a unique statement for one big SUV.

 Despite the full-size girth and triple-ton weight, Ford's big wagon acts surprisingly nimble so it's easy to maneuver on pavement as well as dirt or snow and seems entirely pleasant to drive.


There's big-time muscle aboard every Expedition with Ford's 5.4-liter flex-fuel V8 engine. The flex-fuel designation means this engine burns gasoline or E85 ethanol.

Expect the MSRP figures for Ford's 2010 Expedition line to stretch from around $35,000 clear up to $51,000.
