From Ford press: The 2009 Ford Expedition combines bold Ford Truck design, functionality and toughness with high levels of interior refinement for consumers who need the flexibility of a full-size SUV. With eight available arrays across the lineup, Expedition provides customers with the most convenience and luxury options among full-size SUV offerings.
A wealth of new standard convenience options gives 2009 Expedition a luxurious feel. The Easy Fuel™ capless fuel system eliminates the inconvenience of forgetting to put the gas cap back on after fueling, and can also help prevent emissions from escaping.
Expedition is powered by Ford’s tough truck-proven 5.4-liter Triton™ V-8 engine. Flex Fuel (FFV), a new standard feature in 2009, gives consumers more options at the pump. With three valves per cylinder and variable cam timing, the 5.4-liter engine delivers a balance of refinement and muscle. Rated at 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque, Expedition can tow up to 9,200 pounds, for the best tow rating in its class.
The Triton™ engine is paired with a standard class-exclusive 6-speed automatic transmission. With a wide 6.02:1 gear ratio and two overdrive gears (fifth and sixth), Expedition’s 6-speed transmission has smaller steps between gears than a typical 4-speed automatic and offers improved shift quality, faster acceleration and improved fuel economy.
