2016 Ford Expedition Driving Impressions

Crisp handling and light, but precise, electric power steering belie the Expedition’s mammoth dimensions, making it quite easy to drive. Especially in upper trim levels, ride quality is pleasing.

Ample power and response from the twin-turbo V6 is another unexpected bonus. Not only does the engine deliver copious power at lower speeds, but it has a distinctive sound quality that many drivers are likely to appreciate. The 6-speed automatic transmission is both smooth-shifting and responsive to the gas pedal.

Expedition is impressively manageable given its size. The adaptive suspension performs effectively in controlling so much weight, delivering a luxury-SUV riding experience. Expeditions with the standard suspension aren’t likely to be quite as easygoing when pavement turns rougher. This is a vehicle that’s better on the road than off.
