Ford Expedition EL information:

The Ford Expedition EL: A Good Purchase, Or A Waste Of Money?

There has been a lot of commotion about the Ford Expedition EL. It offers some of the good features to the potential driver, but it has been somewhat a disappointment, as compared to some of the other models from this segment. Most notable features which may turn buyers to purchasing it would be the impeccable handling, yet still; there are several features which make the car a major let down. Despite being quite large, this SUV is still easy to operate, as the steering has been improved and made lighter, and powered suspensions have been employed to control the immense weight of the vehicle. Reportedly, it is one of the heaviest cars, but it is still manageable.

Which are the main characteristics?

As compared to the rivals, the Expedition EL hasn’t been able to bring a lot to the table in order to establish a competition of some sort. In fact, a lot of things remained the same as before, such as the engine power which has been carried on through a lot of years. The only improvement would be the six-speed transmission, which enables smooth shifting. In terms of design, it hasn’t changed a lot either; bringing the customers to express that the design is becoming quite predictable and monotonous. Still, even though the design has nothing to do with the overall performance, it has been noted that this model followed the F-150 route it was based on.  It seems that Ford didn’t pay quite a lot of respect to interior design, and despite the driver’s cabin being spacious, the materials used for the trim actually make it look bland and cheap.

How much of the changes can be applied?

Another feature has been laid to waste, as the Ford Expedition EL only leaves you to the standard options you get with the factory model. This leaves no room for improvement, other than the color re – design which won’t really impact the performance at all. When you look at it, not much can be done other than what was already introduced to the model so far. With such great weight, it took a lot just to build in the suspension strong enough to support it. This is the part which disappoints many potential buyers, as they expected a flexible, high performing  vehicle, whereas they would be treated to a ‘take it or leave it’ kind of a deal which isn’t quite appealing, if all of the performance and design factors are to be considered.

What is the engine like?

Not much has changed in this area as well. Following the footsteps of the F-150, the choice treated the Ford Expedition EL with the same engine, the Regular Unleaded V-8, 5.4 L engine, with the standard 10.0:1 compression rate and the direct gasoline injection feature. The engine block type was made out of die – cast aluminum, and the cylinder head was made out of aluminum alloy. So far, it looks like almost no meaningful changes have been made in this area either, letting this model unable to stand out in any particular way. As you can see, some of the crucial features have remained completely the same.

Will it require a lot of re – fills?

This is a feature that might slightly improve the overall impression of the Ford Expedition EL. The gas tank is able to support the capacity of 33.5 gallons. This is a decent amount, and the fuel consumption rate moves at 15 mpg. This makes the vehicle able to outstand longer drives, and as wonderful as that is, it still won’t do much in terms of performance. The main issue was the fact that this model followed an outdated one and didn’t bring anything new and improved to the table.

Has it been secured well?

There are a lot of mixed feelings toward the Ford Expedition EL safety. While it does have the air bags for the driver and the passenger, as well as the accompanying curtain air bags, some of the safety tests didn’t come out at the expected level. Particularly, the driver’s front and the side pole barrier haven’t passed the test with a satisfying mark, leaving us to wonder what exactly makes this car so special. While it does have some impressive features, safety didn’t quite make it to be one of them as well. This is another big part of the disappointment.

Is it worth buying?

When everything is summed up, it isn’t quite easy to determine whether this car would be worth of considering. All of the details specified point us to believe that this seems to be some sort of a remake of an earlier model, which doesn’t sound quite enticing. There are some good features to follow the car, there is no doubt about that, but improved suspension doesn’t make a car good. There are a lot of areas which would need serious improvement in order to become a good purchase option. The model is heavyweight, but for example, if you attach a trailer to it, the engine won’t be able to support the weight of both the car and the trailer, and since there are virtually no upgrades available to address this issue, this leaves another hole in the overall performance of the Ford Expedition EL. It delivers some of the useful traits, that much is true, but some major issues and questions have been left unresolved. It makes for a good purchase if you are low on budget and you would need a car just for the sake of it. Other than that, it would do you a lot better to consider some of the other options. This isn’t the first time Ford adapted one of its newer models to the older ones. You will find quite a bit of similar models, both in terms of design and performance. The point of releasing a new model would be to improve it compared to the previous ones. When that hasn’t been accomplished, the point of the new model ceases to exist. The only bright spot regarding this model would be the fact that it has a fairly good rate of consuming fuel. Other than that, it should be seriously considered as a choice.
