2015 Ford Expedition Overview

Is the 2015 Ford Expedition a Good Used SUV?

The 2015 Expedition is a roomy and multifunctional SUV that can handle all types of road conditions, tow a boat, or take the whole family on vacation. However, there are better choices in the class with more upscale interiors and better predicted reliability ratings.

Used 2015 Ford Expedition Performance and Interior

The 2015 Ford Expedition is available in two body styles: the standard Expedition and the extended-length Expedition EL with more cargo room. The Expedition comes with a 365-horsepower EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. It delivers smooth acceleration and is plenty strong on the highway. The Expedition gets an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway – better than past models thanks to the new-for-2015 EcoBoost engine. This is good fuel economy for a large SUV.

Rear-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel drive is available. The Expedition has a comfortable ride with composed handling. The available adaptive suspension, which adjusts the SUV's shock absorbers, generates an even smoother ride over rough roads. The Expedition has a class-leading maximum towing capacity of 9,200 pounds.

This eight-seat SUV comes standard with cloth upholstery. Optional second-row captain's chairs decrease seating capacity to seven. Available features include leather seats, heated and ventilated front seats, heated and sliding second-row seats, a sunroof, and power-folding third-row seats.

All rows offer comfortable seating and ample space; even the third row can comfortably fit adults. The sliding second row creates more legroom or cargo space when needed. The Expedition boasts a total of 108.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first two rows. There is 55 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 18.6 cubic feet behind the third row. The Expedition EL has 130.8 cubic feet of overall space, which is more than most SUVs in the class.

There are three sets of LATCH child-seat connectors in the second row and one upper tether on the third-row middle seat.

The Expedition comes standard with satellite radio, Ford’s voice-controlled SYNC system, a USB port, and Bluetooth. Available features include navigation, a rear-seat entertainment system, and an upgraded infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, two USB ports, and HD Radio.

The MyFord Touch infotainment system is easier to use than those of previous generations, but it isn’t intuitive and is outdated compared to some rivals. Additionally, the touch screen isn’t within easy reach of the driver.

Should I Consider Another Used Expedition?

The 2015 Expedition is part of the SUV's third generation, which launched with the 2007 model year and includes the 2017 Expedition. There have been changes throughout this generation, including the addition of the voice-controlled Ford SYNC infotainment system in the 2009 model, dual screens for the rear-seat entertainment system in the 2011 model, and available front park assist in the 2012 model. The 2015 model received a new twin-turbocharged V6 engine, interior and exterior styling updates, and new suspension options. Depending on the features you desire, you may want to consider shopping for an older Expedition to save money.

Which Used Ford Expedition Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Ford Expedition comes in four trims: XLT, Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum. There is also the long-wheelbase Expedition EL. For the best features for your money, go with the Limited model. It comes standard with heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, a power liftgate, a rearview camera, and the upgraded infotainment system. This trim is also available with a number of options, including navigation, blind spot monitoring, and cross traffic alert.

You may consider spending a little bit more money on a certified pre-owned Expedition. For all of its CPO 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.

2015 Ford Expedition and Other SUVs to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Ford Expedition or 2015 Chevrolet Suburban?

The Chevrolet Suburban won our 2015 Best Large SUV for Families award. It has better interior materials than the Expedition and a cavernous cabin with seating for up to nine. It also has impressive cargo space, with an overall 121.1 cubic feet of space. That's more than the Expedition, but not more than the Expedition EL. Both SUVs have the same reliability rating, but the Expedition's safety ratings are higher. The Expedition also has a lower predicted cost of ownership. If you need more space, go with the Suburban. If you want peace of mind, go with the Expedition.

Which Is Better: 2015 Ford Expedition or 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe?

The Chevrolet Tahoe doesn't have as much cargo space as the Expedition (just 94.7 cubic feet overall), and its cabin isn't as spacious or comfortable as the Expedition's. However, the Tahoe can seat up to nine people, and it offers a generous list of features including wireless phone charging, Siri Eyes Free, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. These features are not available in the Expedition. The Tahoe has comfortable handling and plenty of power. Its combination of technology and performance is superior, but the Expedition has more space.

Which Is Better: 2015 Ford Expedition or 2015 GMC Yukon?

The GMC Yukon also comes in two body styles – the standard Yukon and the extra-long XL. It can seat up to nine, but its third row isn't as accommodating as the Expedition's. It also doesn't have as much cargo space. The Yukon has nicer interior materials and comes with a long list of standard features, including an 8-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and Siri Eyes Free. If you can give up some space, the Yukon is the way to go.
