I’m still mourning the fact that Ford stopped making the Excursion. However, Ford did come back with a larger Expedition for 2007.  Expedition EL has a Super Duty looking grill that I’m now used to, and I like the grill flowing into the power dome hood. A new, smooth, 6-speed automatic minus a dip stick has two overdrives (.86 and .69 to 1). This is the trend for improved miles per gallon. The only engine available is the proven 5.4L with 300 horse and 365 torque. With 40 percent of Expedition owners using them for towing, Ford raised the max to 9,200-pound towing capacity. The EL model with 4WD has a towing capacity of 8,650 pounds. The Gross Combined Weight Rating is 15,000 pounds.

Ford took us to Oregon to try out the new Expedition, stopping in Astoria on the Lewis and Clark trail where several movies where made, like “Gooneys,” “Free Willie” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Being from Colorado, I don’t get to the ocean often, so crossing the Columbia River into Washington and back on a ferry was a thrill.
