So it really comes down to form over function. The aim of the headlights in the Expo seem to hit just below the top of the trunk lid on most cars, so you don't need to worry about blinding other cars, either. Ford is known to have some of the most restrictive oem mufflers. This does for driving forward what anti-lock brakes does for stopping. The seats lay completly flat, making it almost as easy to load as any pickup.
I love the heated seats and the sunroof. Only wish for two things. The knock I do have on the truck was that the timing sensor within my engine went around 70,000 miles which is why I gave low ratings on value and reliability. What I didn't like was the previously mentioned engine roar. Appreciate your thoughts on this. The salesman drive the truck over for me to sign the papers.
Usually get 14 around town and best of 18 mph on highway if easy on the throttle. Ford Expeditions are known for getting low gas mileage. I found the mileage to improve marginally on the highway. Overall, I think that this is a great truck. It won't get as good gas mileage as some other vehicles, but you can improve on what you already have. Usually hp and mpg are inverse of eachother, and if you use a chip to increase mpg there's a chance it's doing it by decreasing power. The selectable full-time four-wheel drive system gained a new off-road setting that puts it in four-low mode and changes the throttle response.
Moderate acceleration not slow acceleration, which can decrease mileage , staying within speed limits, limiting highway speeds to 55 mph and coasting to stops rather than maintaining speeds then braking will reduce gas consumption. Something seems off about the dealership. I didn't buy it for great gas mileage. You might hear a little more engine noise on acceleration but this is normal as well. Acceleration and braking are superb.
Why would you buy a new engine, and then put old parts on it. I got better gas mileage towing with the Expedition 13 mpg than the Trailblazer 11mpg. So far my only complaint is that the front doors make some noise and I have a rattle in the headliner when cold. This is my third Expedition I have owned and I've been more impressed with each one. My 05 Expedition used to get 14 - 14. The Expedition also had a pneumatic air-ride suspension system that raised or lowered the car depending on the road conditions. Think about the reason why you changed the engine bad injectors , and now you are going to put those same original bad injectors back on? Plenty of power from the 5.
I recently averaged a meager 14 mpg on a 4000 mile cross country trip. Buyer beware of a truck with new undercoating and new paint! Overall a great car I hope to have for many years. Available in 2, 3 and 4 valve designs, the engine outputs anywhere from 260 horsepower Ford F-series to a supercharged 550 horsepower Shelby Mustang. If you have already bought one, though, don't lose heart. It has been as good as expected. I refused to buy the truck.
Actual fuel economy depends on individual driving habits, weather conditions, state of maintenance and aftermarket additions, which might improve or degrade mileage. But understand more fuel is needed the colder it gets because of the dencer air and awd comes into the factor sometimes so 4 isn't a completly realistic. The Ford third row seats fold down into a flat floor. Frankly I think it comes down to how your rig is configured. Reduce or eliminate aggressive driving habits.
We agreed on an price and I explained that if it wasnt what was described I would not buy the truck. Under the hood, only the 5. Long story short, do not buy a Canadian truck. Colder and more dense air provides more energy during combustion, resulting in less fuel consumed when accelerating and maintaining speed. Hopefully the next generation will improve.
I'm new to the forum and brand new to Expedition's, I just got my first one last week. I have installed a superchips system on my 05 gmc duramax and I really liked that, so after I posted this question I did some research kinda like putting the cart ahead of the horse. Performance tune the engine and transmission. So 93-104 octane fuels though alchohol enhanced use the same amount of oxygen with less fuel, thusly increasing your gas mileage. Stopping distance is increased slightly, but my trailer doesn't have brakes.
Exhaust wraps insulate and prevent heat transfer from the exhaust manifold to the air intake system manifold or engine compartment. From the 2015 model year and onward, the old 5. Open the rear of the system and the engine can breath better. I believe that there are other people here that can direct you to the chip part of your question. Fuel air rations, shift patterns, shift points and other optimizations for a given octane rating can increase fuel mileage and performance by 10 percent or more. Spark plug gaps which exceed recommendations result in less efficient combustion. It maintains traction and keeps you going straight ahead at all times.
