2011 Ford Expedition Overview

When it was new, reviewers said the 2011 Expedition was a solid choice among full-size SUVs, especially for families who needed cargo- and passenger-carrying flexibility. They especially liked the features on the Limited trim, which include an adult-sized third-row seat that folds flat into the floor at the touch of a button. On the other hand, reviewers also found the Expedition’s handling to be a bit ponderous, so if you are looking for something with good handling, test drive a used 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe or 2011 GMC Yukon.

Fuel economy from the Expedition’s 5.4-liter V8 isn’t quite as good as rivals like the 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe. The Expedition gets 14/20 mpg city/highway with rear-wheel drive, while four-wheel drive models get 13/18 mpg. A regular-wheelbase Expedition can carry up to 108.3 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded and can tow up to 9,200 pounds. The extended-wheelbase Expedition EL offers more cargo space, but has a slightly lower towing capacity.

The base 2011 Ford Expedition seats five and comes standard with power windows, mirrors and door locks, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a six-speaker stereo with a CD player and auxiliary input. Seating for eight, as well as Ford’s SYNC infotainment system and satellite radio, are standard on XLT and higher trims. The Expedition hasn’t undergone any major changes since 2007, so you might be able to save some money by opting for an older model.

Other Cars to Consider

If you’re looking at the Expedition, consider cross-shopping the 2011 Chevrolet Suburban. The Suburban offers interior space that rivals the long-wheelbase Expedition EL, but reviewers thought the Suburban was easier to drive. The Suburban also gets better fuel economy. The most significant drawback of the Suburban is that its third row doesn’t fold flat into the floor.

The 2011 GMC Yukon is also a fitting rival to the 2011 Expedition. The Yukon isn’t as large as the Suburban, but reviewers agreed that the Yukon is the most fun to drive of the three. The Suburban and Yukon both get 15/21 mpg city/highway, which is better than the Expedition’s fuel economy. On the downside, the Yukon’s third row also must be removed to increase cargo space. Reviewers greatly preferred the Expedition’s available power-folding third row for its added versatility.
