Hoping to rejuvenate sales of its big SUV, Ford Motor has cut prices across the board on 2007 Expedition models. Cutting the model range from four to three by dropping the 2006 base XLS model, the 2007 entry-level XLT is priced at $29,995 - $5,485 below last year's XLT, and $3,485 lower than the previous base model.

The Eddie Bauer model comes in at $36,395 (a $3,200 drop) and the top of the line Limited is priced at $37,845 (down $3,500 from 2006).

All prices are for RWD versions - 4WD will set you back an extra $2,900. If you need extra room, there is an EL (extended length) version of each model for an extra $2,650.

The price reductions come with an enhanced standard equipment list, including Ford's new six-speed automatic, additional safety features, and an extended warranty.

      Whew, how clever. Can we at least get constructive criticism rather than childish and moronic comments?

      Expedition looks great and should compete well with its competition, especially with the lesser price, which may help the consumer rationalize paying more for gas consumption.

      Again, moronic comments. The large SUVs that Ford makes are generally good.

      ...as well as a 8 year old design with a hideous new schnoz.

      Very boring and tepid design overall. The front end is a little bit interesting and that's about it. Is a bit too angular and still looks a lot like the 2003 model in many places on the exterior. Given Ford's very grim financial situation I guess it would have been too costly for a more extensive redesign. The prices are very attractive, but Ford desperately needs sales so the prices must be reasonable. But I'm sure it will still be every bit as unreliable, recalled just as much, and still a personal safety hazard as Fords tend to be. Overall, GM's full-sive SUVs and the Nissan Armada and Toyota Sequoia are far better choices and worth the extra $$$.

      And also, Ken I hate to break it to you but the 07 Expedition's interior really isn't impressive. Most full size truck/suv's interiors suck, while the upper level 07 Tahoe is an exception. Looks like a wash to me in that area.

      Very cool and yet sad. It's great for the consumer but I would hate to have to make my living by being a Ford (or GM) supplier. I'm guessing the cost reduction has come from beating the tar our of their suppliers. Hopefully the crome wheels on the Expedition aren't plastic inserts like they are on the Explorer. I do have one of these on order. My apologies to Algore (he-he).

      Ken-
      You definitely should work at Ford's marketing department. As Paula Abdul used to tell nearly every American Idol contestant, "you have a great spirit". You love Ford so why not work for them? Ford needs people with lots of spirit to brighten up things in Dearborn (that and better products, unfortunately the '07 Expedition falls a little short). Even though you'll never convince me with your lame examples about why competing vehicles suck, your last line in the response was great and you sounded like a Ford advertisement. Most interesting counter-argument I've received!

      The cost reduction will come from beating the tar out of HUGE rebates (often $5000+) and likely from cutting dealer margins, which are quite large on this model.

      Can anyone point me toward a full price list, including options, if one exists? I'm not even seeing the release on the Ford media site.

      Ken, I have driven the F-150, and it is nice, for a truck. Like I said, the segment is a wash in that department. They're all pretty utilitarian to me, which I like, but what I don't like is someone telling me how great it is. The interior of a corolla looks more upscale to me.

      I guess I'm just showing my true colors, as I am a very practical person. Resale value matters, and the Sequoia is head and shoulders better off than Ford or GM. I don't like to waste money, if I ever started, it would be on a corvette or mercedes, not a commuter car.

      BTW I'm not a prospective buyer in this segment, but I do enjoy discussing various vehicles, especially when they are of relevance to my friends and family. I currently drive an 86 Toyota pickup, in the past I've driven an 05 colorado, 95 dakota, 92 explorer, and the list goes on and on. I like trucks, and since I lack a family of my own, I will stick with them. Could I stand next to you in the Ford dealership and buy the same 07 Expedition? Probably, but that truck screams impracticality and waste to me. My vehicles suit my needs (and my frugality), and a full size SUV has never been called for.
