The full-size Expedition became a popular pick with sport-ute shoppers who wanted big, but not too big. Its pickup-based roots meant it could take families into the back woods, or tow the heftiest of trailers. Even with all three rows of seats in use, there was a considerable amount of available storage space, especially on EL versions. An available load-leveling suspension help keep the big Ford on an even keel no matter how heavy the load. The Expedition’s beefy body-on-frame chassis assisted both ride comfort and handling abilities.
