Ford focused on improving interior and exterior design, safety features and comfort in the redesigned 2007 Ford Expedition. Ford is estimating that the 36-month lease-end residual values of the 2007 Ford Expedition will be as high as 49 percent—a 9-point increase compared with the 2006 model. 2007 Expedition features include: A new exterior design inspired by Ford F-Series pickup trucks. 5.4-liter Triton® V-8 engine (300 hp, 365 lb.-ft torque) and a new 6-speed automatic transmission which deliver 9,200 pounds maximum towing capacity (300 pounds more than last year). Second-generation independent rear suspension provides improved ride and handling. Seating for up to nine passengers in an all-new interior, with more third row legroom. Standard front row Captain’s Chairs. New second- and third-row seats fold flat and level.New standard safety features include AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control) and Safety Canopy™ three-row side air curtains.The Expedition’s frame has been redesigned for increased safety in front-impact collisions.New options for 2007 include 20-inch chrome-clad wheels, a new DVD-based navigation system, SIRIUS satellite radio and a power liftgate. Other available equipment includes PowerFold™ third row seats and a second-row bench with a Centerslide™ middle seat section. Ford research found cargo space is highly valued among Expedition owners, leading Ford engineers to stretch the Expedition’s wheelbase and body by almost 15 inches to create an additional 24 cubic feet of storage space behind the third row.
