1999 Ford Expedition Overview

Once again, the 1999 Ford Expedition attracted buyers faster than Ford could get the vehicles off the line. The full-size SUV proved tremendously popular, and there was very little tinkering with the successful formula for the 1999 model year.

As in previous years, two trim levels were available for the '99 Expedition: XLT and Eddie Bauer. Even though the XLT was the entry-level model, it still shipped with plenty of snazzy features as part of its standard equipment (power everything, fog lights, separate heat/cool controls for front and back, and various other goodies). The Eddie Bauer trimline offered rugged luxury as part of its basic package, including leather upholstery, captain's-chair seats, and high-end interior detailing.

Why was the '99 Ford Expedition so popular? At 17 feet long, it actually fit into garages, parking spaces, and the like with greater ease than other full-size sport-utility vehicles like the bulky Dodge Durango. Drivers and reviewers alike praised its relative agility. And people looking for roomy interiors and big cargo space found what they sought in the 1999 Expedition, which seats 7 adults (9 with optional third-row seating), and has 120 cubic feet of cargo capacity.

The one change Ford did make for the 1999 Expedition was to up the power in its Triton V-8 engines. Buyers could choose a 4.6 liter overhead cam V8 with 240 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque, or upgrade to a 5.4 liter version with 260 horsepower and a whopping 350 lb.-ft. of torque.
