The Ford Expedition, introduced in 1997, marked Ford's debut into the full-size, four-door SUV market. The Lincoln division has marketed a version as the Lincoln Navigator since the Expedition's inception, becoming the first full-size SUV by a luxury brand in North America. The Expedition has proven its longevity, featuring in a 2016 survey as one of the vehicles with the longest lifespan, and maintaining its design characteristics from the early to mid-2000s into its 2017 model. The first generation was developed under the UN93 program from 1993 to 1996, offering ControlTrac AWD with automatic transmission, and a BorgWarner 4406 dual-clutch transmission. Despite initial misconceptions about its off-road and towing capabilities, the Expedition delivered impressive performance with its long-travel four-wheel independent suspension and water-modified boxer chassis. Its T1 chassis, replacing the original, increased torsional rigidity by 10% and featured a new five-link rear suspension, lower control arms, and the option for adaptive air springs. The Expedition also debuted a new 6R75 six-speed automatic transmission with two-speed overdrive, equipped with a mechatronic TCM storing adaptive shift data, ensuring the retention of the driver's style even in power failure situations.
As a full-size SUV designed to tackle harsh road conditions, Ford Expedition may show accelerated wear. First, drivers often report issues with the suspension system, marked by clunking, rattling, or metal-on-metal scratching noises from under the vehicle or the tire area. Additionally, handling might become challenging due to a loose steering wheel. In such cases, inspecting the sway bar bushing and link for faults is recommended. Second, due to the reliance of modern vehicles on electricity, the Expedition may show electrical issues like a wavering or static speedometer needle, squealing noises from behind the dashboard, or erratic readings from the voltage regulator, indicating the need for replacing the speedometer or instrument cluster. Difficulties in starting and powering the car or visible corrosion suggest a bad battery cable that needs replacement. Furthermore, the windshield wiper, crucial for maintaining visibility, may not function optimally if the wiper arm is faulty and should be inspected first if you notice any anomalies.
