2014 Ford Expedition Overview

Is the 2014 Ford Expedition a Good Used SUV?

The 2014 Ford Expedition is a capable large SUV with sufficient power and comfortable handling. Plentiful cargo room and passenger space add to its assets. Still, some competitors offer nicer interiors, higher reliability scores, and well-weighted steering compared to the Expedition's slow steering.

The 2014 Expedition's lone 310-horsepower V8 engine should have sufficient power for most people. Still, some rivals – like one of its GM competitors, the Chevrolet Tahoe – have more powerful engines. The Expedition can feel overtaxed when carrying a full load, but opting for the long-wheelbase Expedition EL will solve that problem (especially when towing heavy objects). Handling is pleasantly secure, so cornering will not be an issue. Nonetheless, steering in this 3-row SUV can feel a bit heavy, and it’s not the most responsive. The Expedition returns between 13 and 14 mpg in the city and 18 and 20 mpg on the highway.

The 2014 Ford Expedition seats eight (seven with second-row captain’s chairs) and has ample head- and legroom in its three rows. The interior is quiet but features second-rate materials. The center console is full of logically arranged controls, though models that come with a navigation system could use a bigger screen. There are three full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors in the second-row seats (two full sets in models with the captain’s chairs). The Expedition EL has more cargo space than many rivals.

All models come with cloth seats, satellite radio, a SYNC voice command system, a USB port, Bluetooth, and a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Some models come with leather seats, a navigation system, HD Radio, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, a premium audio system, a power liftgate, heated seats, cooled front-row seats, and a moonroof.

Should I Consider Another Used Expedition?

The 2014 Ford Expedition is part of a generation that started in 2007 and includes the 2017 model year. There were no major changes between the 2013 and 2014 model years, so you may want to opt for a 2013 Expedition to save money. Models prior to 2013 have different trim levels, so features will vary. The 2015 model year added a new V6 engine and updated the interior and exterior styling. If these changes interest you, the 2015 Expedition may be a better alternative.

Which Used 2014 Ford Expedition Is Right for Me?

The 2014 Ford Expedition comes in four trims: XLT, XLT Premium, Limited, and King Ranch. Go with the XLT Premium trim. It adds a rearview camera, a power liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a six-way power-adjustable passenger seat, a premium sound system, and rain-sensing windshield wipers to the standard features list.

Considering the Expedition's below-average reliability, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned model. For all of its certified pre-owned vehicles, Ford extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles and provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty. Each CPO vehicle must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Ford warranty page carefully.

2014 Ford Expedition and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Ford Expedition or 2014 Chevrolet Suburban?

The 2014 Chevrolet Suburban has outstanding cargo space, but its handling can feel a bit heavy. Both the Suburban and Expedition have low reliability scores, but the Suburban gets the lowest possible score (two out of five). You may want to look at other SUVs, but between these two, you'll want to go for the Expedition. It is a more powerful vehicle with lower ownership costs.

Which Is Better: 2014 Ford Expedition or 2014 GMC Yukon?

The 2014 GMC Yukon has a high-quality interior, an above-average reliability rating, and a standard rearview camera. The GMC Yukon XL gets more cargo space than the Expedition EL, but the Expedition has more third-row legroom and a fold-flat third-row seat (not available in the Yukon). Still, unlike the Expedition, the Yukon has more than one engine in its lineup and seating for up to nine. The Yukon might cost a little more, but it is the better choice.

Which Is Better: 2014 Ford Expedition or 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe?

The 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe is the better SUV. It has a good reliability score and accurate steering, which cannot be said of the Expedition. Both SUVs suffer from a low-rent interior, but the Expedition has a little more interior space. Still, the Tahoe has better safety scores and a more refined engine.
