2015 Ford Expedition Overview

Is the 2015 Ford Expedition a Good Used SUV?

The 2015 Ford Expedition is an ideal large SUV. If you have a big family, the Expedition should be at the top of your list. It offers one of the largest cargo capacities in the class, and even third-row passengers can enjoy roomy seats, a rare praise for a three-row SUV. Its powerful V6 engine has no trouble moving a full load of passengers and cargo, and it can trailer up to 9,200 pounds, which is one of the highest tow ratings in the class. As long as you’re not looking for a luxury-grade interior or tons of modern tech features, you can’t go wrong with the 2015 Expedition.

How Much Does the 2015 Ford Expedition Cost to Own?

The 2015 Ford Expedition’s five-year estimated costs for gas, insurance, maintenance, and repairs come to nearly $28,870, which is just below average for a three-row SUV.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Ford Expedition?

A 2019 Ford Expedition ranges in price from $52,130 to $79,200. By comparison, list prices for a used 2015 Expedition top out at $40,000. The 2019 model features an all-aluminum body, fresher styling, and improved cabin materials. The latest model also has more available driver assistance features, including a 360-degree parking camera, stop-and-go adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning with pedestrian detection. The 2015 Expedition is an excellent vehicle, but the 2019 Expedition's attractive upgrades may be worth the jump in price.

No new large SUVs are as affordable as the 2015 Expedition. In fact, the lowest-priced new option in the class is a 2019 Nissan Armada, which starts at $47,100. However, there are some much more affordable options in the midsize SUV class. Starting at $26,290, the 2019 Kia Sorento can seat up to seven, and the cargo space behind its third row is only about 7 cubic feet smaller than the Expedition’s. This affordable SUV offers a classy cabin with straightforward technology, as well as a smooth ride and comfortable seats for all.

Which Model Year of the Ford Expedition Is Best?

The 2015 Expedition is part of a generation that spans the 2007 through 2017 model years. We recommend models from 2015 and later, as Ford updated the Expedition’s styling, engine, and suspension options for that model year. For 2016, Ford replaced the original SYNC 3 infotainment system with an easier-to-use interface, making this model an even better choice. There were no major changes for 2017.

The fully redesigned 2018 model is also worth considering – if it’s within your budget – because it adds a slew of new technology and safety features.

Which Used Ford Expedition Model Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Ford Expedition comes in four trims: XLT, Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum. A long-wheelbase variant, called the Expedition EL, is also available.

The Expedition XLT gets you features like satellite radio, voice controls, a USB port, and Bluetooth. However, the Expedition Limited is the best value, as it gives you a number of useful features for your money. It comes standard with heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, a power liftgate, a rearview camera, and the upgraded infotainment system.

The Expedition King Ranch mostly adds comfort and appearance features, like King Ranch badging and perforated leather-trimmed seats in all three rows. It also comes with blind spot monitoring and a navigation system. The Expedition Platinum trim includes upgraded leather upholstery, higher-end interior components, and a moonroof.

What Does Ford's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Ford offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 80,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Ford extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years from the original sale date or 100,000 miles. These vehicles also get a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty after the original three-year/36,000-mile new-car warranty expires. Each Ford CPO vehicle must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like vehicle history reports, towing, and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Ford warranty page carefully.

Ford does not have one of the better CPO programs among affordable carmakers. Chevy, GMC, Honda, Kia, and Mazda all have better programs.

2015 Ford Expedition Versus the Competition

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

Both the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Expedition are fine vehicles. If cargo and passenger space are your priorities, the Expedition is the way to go. It has more cargo space than the Tahoe by 13.6 cubic feet, and the Ford’s interior is roomier and more comfortable. Fans of technology will find more to like in the Tahoe. It can seat up to nine people, and it has a longer list of features that includes wireless phone charging, Siri Eyes Free, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. However, the Tahoe’s average list price is about $6,800 higher than the Expedition’s. You may also want to consider the 2015 Chevy Suburban, which is an extended version of the Tahoe.

Which Is Better: 2015 Ford Expedition or 2015 Ford Explorer?

If you like the 2015 Ford Expedition’s performance but are on a tighter budget, the 2015 Ford Explorer may work for you. As a midsize SUV with a lower average list price than the Expedition by about $6,700, the Explorer has a smooth ride and a lineup of powerful engines. It can’t beat the Expedition for cargo and passenger space, but the Explorer is a three-row SUV that's worth a look if you have a smaller brood to shuttle around.

2015 Ford Expedition Performance

How Does the 2015 Ford Expedition Drive?

A 365-horsepower EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission are standard in the Expedition. This beefy engine delivers plenty of power to move this large SUV with ease.

The Expedition boasts a smooth ride and composed handling. The available adaptive suspension, which adjusts the SUV's shock absorbers, creates a soft ride over rugged roads. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and four-wheel drive is available.

Does the 2015 Ford Expedition Get Good Gas Mileage?

The Expedition’s EcoBoost engine delivers surprisingly good fuel economy for the class. Regular-wheelbase models with rear-wheel drive get an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. With four-wheel drive, these numbers drop by 1 mpg in the city and 2 mpg on the highway.

2015 Ford Expedition Towing Capacity

The Ford Expedition can tow up to 9,200 pounds, when properly equipped. That’s one of the highest tow ratings in the class.

How Many People Does the 2015 Ford Expedition Seat?

The Expedition offers standard seating for eight in three rows. Available second-row captain’s chairs reduce the seating capacity to seven. Cloth upholstery is standard. Leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, heated and sliding second-row seats, and a power-folding third row are available. All rows offer comfortable and spacious seating. Even the third row can accommodate adults, which is rare for the class. The sliding second row allows you to divvy up legroom when needed.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2015 Ford Expedition?

The Expedition’s second row of seats has three complete sets of LATCH child-seat connectors, or two in models equipped with captain’s chairs. The third-row middle seat has an upper LATCH connector. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Expedition’s LATCH system the second-highest rating of Acceptable for ease of use.

2015 Ford Expedition Features

Standard features include satellite radio, Ford’s voice-controlled SYNC system, a USB port, and Bluetooth. Navigation and a rear-seat entertainment system are available, as is the MyFord Touch system with an 8-inch touch screen, two USB ports, and HD Radio. This infotainment system is not without its flaws. While it's certainly an improvement over previous iterations, Ford has come a long way in infotainment tech since the 2015 model year.
