2009 Ford Expedition Trims

EL Eddie Bauer

Avg. Price: $22,826

The 2009 Ford Expedition EL Eddie Bauer has all the stylish and technological interior, exterior, and drivetrain features of the Expedition Eddie Bauer, but adds length and space. The EL Eddie Bauer has a maximum cargo volume of 130.8 cubic feet, compared to 108.3 for the non-EL, including 42.6 cubic feet behind the third row (as opposed to 18.6 for the non-EL). The Eddie Bauer EL is 221.3 inches long (compared to 206.5), its wheelbase is 131 inches (compared to 119), its fuel tank is 33.5 gallons (compared to 28), and the shoulder room in the third row is increased by 15 inches. That third row in the Eddie Bauer EL also has a 60/40 split and fold-flat feature that doesn’t come with the non-EL trim. The Eddie Bauer EL also adds 18-inch machined aluminum wheels and a cargo organizer, but its maximum towing capacity dips slightly to 8,900 pounds (with the heavy-duty towing package), compared to 9,200 for the non-EL Eddie Bauer.

If you want the stylish Pueblo Gold moldings and bumpers of the Eddie Bauer Expedition trim, but also need tons of cargo space and off-road capability, the 2009 Ford Expedition EL Eddie Bauer 4WD is for you. This Expedition trim has all the interior, exterior, and drivetrain features of the Eddie Bauer, all the added size of the EL Eddie Bauer, and Ford’s Control Trac four-wheel-drive system, which uses one simple knob to shift from high or low four-wheel mode to automatic four-wheel-drive mode or the efficient two-wheel-drive mode. The EL Eddie Bauer 4WD adds front tow hooks, and its maximum towing capacity (with the available heavy-duty towing package) is 8,700 pounds, compared to 9,200 for the two-wheel-drive, non-EL Eddie Bauer.

EL King Ranch

Given the “King” in its name, the added size and space the EL trim offers seems only right for the 2009 Ford Expedition EL King Ranch. Like all the EL trims, the EL King Ranch Limited is about 15 inches longer than the non-EL, has an extra 22.5 cubic feet of cargo space, 15 more inches of shoulder room in the third row, a 12-inch longer wheelbase, and 5.5 extra gallons in the fuel tank. The EL King Ranch also adds a cargo organizer and a 60/40 fold-flat split to the third-row bench seat. Its maximum towing capacity (with the available heavy-duty towing package) dips from the King Ranch's 9,200 to 8,900 pounds.

Limited

Avg. Price: $24,781

If the Pueblo Gold bumpers and trim on the Expedition Eddie Bauer trims are too much for you, but you like all the added gadgets (and maybe want a few more), the 2009 Ford Expedition Limited is worth a look. The Limited replaces all that gold with a monochromatic appearance, with body-color running boards, bumpers, and side mirrors (which are power-folding and adjusting, heated, and come with security approach lamps and integrated turn signals). Other exterior features include 18-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels, headlamps with blackout treatment, rain-sensing wipers, chrome roof side rails with black crossbars, and the heavy-duty towing package.

The interior has all the Eddie Bauer features, but upgrades with a rear-view camera, power rear quarter windows, a power liftgate, a universal garage door opener, heated second-row seats, and 10-way power captain’s chairs for the driver and passenger that are both heated and cooled and come with power lumbar, recline, and memory for the driver. The Limited shares a drivetrain with all the Expedition trims – a 5.4-liter, 310-horsepower Triton V8 with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Limited 4WD

Avg. Price: $25,590

The 2009 Ford Expedition Limited 4WD has all the features of the two-wheel-drive Limited trim but adds Ford’s Control Trac 4X4 system.

XLT

Avg. Price: $18,104

The 2009 Ford Expedition XLT is the base trim for this SUV, but it isn’t a bare-bones base and comes loaded with high-end features from the drivetrain to the exterior, which you might expect with an MSRP of $34,845.

The XLT shares a drivetrain with all 15 of the other Expedition trims – a 5.4-liter Triton V8 that produces 310 horsepower at 5,100 rpm and 365 lb-ft of torque at 3,600 rpm and has a maximum towing capacity of 6,000 pounds, though that jumps to 9,200 pounds with the available (and affordable at $300-400) heavy-duty towing package. The V8 is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and gets 14 city/20 highway mpg.

The XLT provides this model line with its base features. On the interior those include cruise control, air conditioning, auxiliary rear A/C and heat, rear floor air vents, a tilt steering column, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power locks and windows, three power points, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, auxiliary audio jack, and a second-row 40/20/40 split seat with Ford’s CenterSlide slide-forward feature for the center section that reclines and folds flat to the floor for added cargo space.

The base exterior features include a Class IV trailer tow receiver with four-pin connector, foglamps, a rear windshield wiper, SecuriCode keyless entry pad, liftgate with flip-up glass, automatic headlamps with rainlamp, black roof side rails with crossbars, and black running boards.

Features that are unique to the XLT are 17-inch aluminum wheels, a chrome grille, chrome handles for the door and liftgate, black power heated side mirrors with security approach lamps and manual fold-away, first-row captain’s chairs with a six-way power driver’s seat, and an AM/FM stereo with single-CD player and MP3 playback ability.

XLT 4WD

Avg. Price: $18,766

The 2009 Ford Expedition XLT 4WD has all the same interior, exterior, and drivetrain features as the XLT, but adds Ford’s Control Trac four-wheel-drive system. The driver controls this three-mode system with a knob that allows him or her to drive in high or low four-wheel mode; switch to 4X4 AUTO, which allows the vehicle to automatically transfer traction between the wheels; or shift into the more efficient two-wheel-drive mode. All 4WD Expeditions come with front tow hooks, and their maximum towing capacity (with the available heavy-duty towing package) is 9,000 pounds, 200 less than their two-wheel-drive counterparts.
