  • These large SUV prices are out of control. Both the Tahoe and Suburban and now Expedition are simply closed back pick up trucks, yet they are priced thousands higher.
    I also think Ford is making a mistake by just offering the Ecoboost engine in the Expedition.
    Though I have ALWAYS been a fan of turbocharged cars, my first car ever, when I was not quite 16 was a 1986 Dodge Shelby Charger Turbo and I've owned numerous turbocharged vehicles since....however, they've almost always been NEW or only a year old with low miles. Turbos don't do well with resale value. I personally would never buy a used turbocharged engine that had more than 50k miles on it....especially in a truck or a performance vehicle. They get worked over and the added heat and stress from a turbocharged motor affects the longevity of the engines.
    Then there is the sound. Trucks need to sound like TRUCKS! Hence why I bought a 2014 Ram 1500 Laramie with the Hemi over the Ecoboost.
    The Expedition NEEDS to be offered with the 5.0 liter V8.
    I also think it's silly to call the Ecoboost an "upgrade" engine over the 5.0, since the 5.0 is NEUTERED to make the Ecoboost seem better and have more power.
    A simple drop in 5.0 from the Mustang would put the 5.0 in the trucks at 410-420 hp depending on intake and exhaust plumbing, and 380 ft-lbs of torque.
    Not as much torque as Ecoboost but significantly more horsepower and much better sound, much easier and cheaper maintenance and repair costs.
    The Ecoboost and 5.0 V8 should be a SAME COST option and then see how well sales of the Ecoboost does, when the 5.0 isn't neutered.

    I suppose there's still a market for this type of vehicle, despite the shift toward smaller more fuel efficient vehicles.
  • The redesigned 2015 Ford Expedition SUV starts at $44,585 - WOW, so if it "STARTS at" $44K, I'm guessing nearly $50K MSRP with some options and TAX - That's allot of pay-olla....

    My only beef with this is calling it "Redesigned". Is it really redesigned? Or is it just a facelift with new engines and powertrains, shoved into the existing body? But yeah, rigs like this do have their place. Actually, if Dodge would make something like this, say, bring back the Ramcharger nameplate, and base it off the Ram, I'd consider one.

    In the past, I'd always been a car guy, although I've had my Granddad's old '85 Silverado around as a spare vehicle since 2002. But, about two years ago I bought a leftover 2012 Dodge Ram, and it's my daily driver now. It's real easy to get accustomed to the higher seating position, improved view, etc, but then when I go back to a car, even a big car, it just feels awkward. At 230+", my Ram is a pain to park in tight spaces, so if I go into DC, for example, parking can be a bit of a pain. But, if you spend most of your time in the suburbs, these bigger rigs aren't that bad to handle.

    If I had to drive a lot for my commute, I don't think I'd have one of these monsters for a commuter car. But, I'm only logging about 7,000 miles per year, so the ~14.5 mpg average isn't killing me too bad. And if I had a long commute, with highway driving, that would definitely improve.

    So, I'll give Ford credit for trying to improve the fuel economy on these things. I'm a bit leery, of relatively small, high-tech engines trying to move a lot of bulk, though. I have a feeling they won't age well. And is the EcoBoost V-6 going to be the only engine in the extended version, as well? That really seems like it's going to be pushing it.

    BTW, does Ford (or did Ford) ever offer the Expedition XLT in 3/4 and 1-ton versions, like GM has done with the Suburban? I know for awhile, Ford had the Excursion for the 3/4 and 1-ton market.

    Closer to 60, it's been that way for years for the Limited and King Ranch, and now there is a Platinum edition.
