If you are in the market for a full-size SUV that won’t drain your wallet, consider the 2003 Ford Expedition XLT. This eight-passenger model has solid safety scores and will not fly out of your budget. It delivers a comfortable and refined driving experience for you and the entire family.
Powered by a magnanimous 4.6-liter V8 engine, the Expedition generates 232 hp and 291 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with 4WD and a four-speed automatic transmission, it has a fuel economy set at 16 mpg combined (14 city/19 highway). With the proper towing package, it can haul up to 8,900 lbs. That’s more than the Toyota Highlander! According to Edmunds, it also earned an exceptional 5-star rating for overall protection in government-conducted crash tests.
The XLT trim level includes a flip-up rear hatch window for letting in some fresh air. More like a workhorse, this beast has taken things back-to-basics. You can pop in a CD and listen to your favorite mixtape.
