The Ford Expedition gets a new twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine for the 2015 model year, which will make it more fuel efficient and more powerful than ever before. The 2014 model, which carries with it a 14.6-percent discount off its sticker price, doesn't have the new engine, soldiering on with Ford's SOHC 5.4-liter V-8 that is rated at 310 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque. Still, that's a fine engine, and the 2014 Expedition will carry people, haul gear, tow boats, and pull campers with no trouble. When equipped with four-wheel drive, the Expedition will get you there whether the road is dry, wet, snowy, or even when there's hardly any road at all.
For 2014 the Expedition is available in four trims: XL, XLT, Limited, and King Ranch. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard equipment. It is available with either rear-wheel drive or electronically engaged four-wheel drive. A Class IV trailer hitch and trailer sway control are standard.
