Model Highlights

The Ford Expedition comes in two sizes for 2009--standard-length, and the extended-length EL, which allows more cargo and seating space in the back. There are also four different models in each size, XLT, Eddie Bauer, Limited, and King Ranch, ranging from well-equipped to very luxurious. All four models are powered by a 5.4L Triton V8 making 300 hp and 365 ft-lb of torque. Power is put to the wheels through a 6-speed automatic transmission, and all Expeditions are available with either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive.

The four-wheel-drive system, one that's oriented toward truck duty, has a low range and optional shift-on-the-fly capability; in low range, the electronic throttle recalibrates to allow more precise throttle control.

The Expedition has a tough, fully-boxed frame for long-term durability in towing and hauling, yet also has an independent rear suspension, which gives it a better ride than many other truck-based SUVs. Variable boost power steering also improves maneuverability.

The Expedition can tow up to 9,200 pounds, while the 6-speed automatic allows a taller top gear and improved fuel economy.

Both standard and EL Expedition models have three rows of seating, and the second row is available either in a 40/20/40-split bench or two captain's chairs. On the EL, the third row is not only roomier but easier to access, thanks to larger rear doors. Overall, the EL is nearly 15 inches longer than the standard-length model and rides on a wheelbase that's a foot longer. The EL also has more cargo space behind the third row--24 cubic feet more than the standard-length.

The Expedition has seat-mounted front side air bags plus head-protecting Safety Canopy side-curtain air bags with rollover detection for front and rear occupants. AdvanceTrac with RSC, an electronic stability control system, is standard across the model line as well.

The XLT features an anti-theft system, auxiliary power outlet, steering wheel-mount audio and cruise controls, power heated mirrors, fog lamps rear air conditioning, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and more. The Eddie Bauer features unique paint and exterior trim, special badging, and a chrome-trimmed interior console.

Both the Limited and King Ranch models are loaded with luxury features, but the King Ranch model, which slots above the Limited at the top of the range, provides additional luxury items inside, especially in the way of high-quality Chaparral leather seats and trim.

Standout options include a rearview camera system, power-deploying running boards, a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, a navigation system, a power moonroof, a power liftgate system, power adjustable pedals, heated and cooled front seats, second-row captain's chairs, and the power-folding third-row seat.


Pros

Smooth ride; interior comfort; towing capability; spacious third-row arrangement


Model News

Following a major 2007 redesign and some upgrades in standard equipment last year, the Ford Expedition enters 2009 production virtually unchanged.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Ford Expedition stands out for its combination of smooth ride and quiet interior comfort, with full-size-truck hauling ability, making it a good choice for those who frequently tow. Ford says the Expedition's 9,200-pound tow capacity is the highest in its class, and that the 6-speed automatic transmission allows better fuel economy than that of its rivals.

Summary
FORD IS RECALLING 1,357 MY 2009 EXPEDITION AND NAVIGATOR VEHICLES FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT." THE BRAKE STOP LAMP SWITCH MAY BE IMPROPERLY ADJUSTED. THIS MAY RESULT IN A DELAY IN BRAKE STOPLAMP ILLUMINATION WHEN THE BRAKE PEDAL IS DEPRESSED. IN SITUATIONS OF VERY MILD BRAKE APPLICATION, THE BRAKE STOPLAMPS MAY NOT ILLUMINATE.

Consequence
DELAY OR LOSS OF BRAKE STOPLAMP FUNCTION MAY INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL ADJUST THE BRAKE STOPLAMP SWITCH FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE JULY 6, 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT FORD MOTOR COMPANY CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP CENTER AT 1-866-436-7332 OR WWW.OWNERCONNECTION.COM.

FORD RECALL NO. 09C09. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
