How Much Does a Ford Exhibition Cost?

Ford Exhibition Prices



ZIP:

Not too long ago it seemed like if you weren't driving a big, beefy SUV then you were missing out on the action. Nowadays, lumbering, truck-based SUVs are becoming more and more outdated, replaced by smaller, more agile, and more fuel-efficient car-based crossovers. Despite this, some buyers still need everything the 2010 Ford Expedition has to offer. If you have a big family, need to take the local basketball team on a road trip, or require the towing capacity to haul a boat, then the Expedition may fit the bill.

Ford Exhibition MSRP

XL 5.4L 3V SOHC V8 $36,900
XLT 5.4L 3V SOHC V8 $38,440
XL EL 5.4L 3V SOHC V8 $39,550
XLT EL 5.4L 3V SOHC V8 $41,150
Limited 5.4L 3V SOHC V8 $45,110
King Ranch 5.4L 3V SOHC V8 $46,380
Limited EL 5.4L SOHC V8 $47,760
King Ranch EL 5.4L 3V SOHC V8 $49,030


Ford's largest SUV-offering is available as either the regular (but still huge) Expedition, and the EL (extended-length), which is fifteen inches longer. Both seat eight, but the EL models boast more cargo room. No matter which of the eight Expedition trim levels you choose, it will be powered by a 5.4-liter, 310 horsepower V8 matched with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Equipped with a towing package, the Expedition can haul up to 9,200 pounds. Another available option is Ford's ControlTrac 4-Wheel Drive System that has a dual-range transfer case for monster-truck like traction in off-road conditions. The Expedition's engine has flex-fuel capability, meaning it can run on gasoline or a blend of up to 85% ethanol. The 2WD engine gets around 16 mpg, and the 4WD drops down to about 14 mpg.

As far as options go, the Expedition has plenty. All models come standard with the AdvanceTrac stability control system which also provides roll stability. There is also the standard Trailer Sway Control (to keep your boat steady), keyless entry, and heated front seats. A number of possible seating configurations provide room for five, seven, or eight passengers. Most models can be fitted with second-row bucket seats in place of the standard bench. Even the second-row bench seats recline and fold down. The center section can slide forward so that parents can keep a better eye on small children. On upper trim levels, the third row folds down the push of a button (on other models it still folds down easily). Still, without the second or third row folded down cargo room is impressive. On the EL models, once both rows are stowed away, there is over 108 cubic feet of space.

On all models, the seats are plush and comfortable, and drivers well-over six feet tall can comfortably sit behind the wheel. The most luxurious trim level, the King Ranch, provides amenities befitting of, quite simply, a king. If you'd prefer to pick and choose your comforts, most upscale options can be paired with lower trim levels as well. One of the nicest is Ford's Sync system, which provides hands-free communication and entertainment control.

Considering its size, the Expedition is not as ponderous to drive as you might think. A rear independent suspension sets this SUV apart from competitors, providing responsive steering, a smooth ride, and balanced handling. Even with a full load the powerful V8 is up to the challenge.

The 2011 Ford Expedition is built to rival competitors like the Chevrolet Suburban and Toyota Sequoia. By all measures of a full-sized SUV—space, power, and capacity—the Expedition is up to the challenge and then some.
