2004 Ford Expedition Overview

The 2004 Ford Expedition continued to enjoy market momentum from the previous year's redesign. Drivers and reviewers praised its agile-for-its-size handling, thanks to independent front and rear suspension. Of course, the roomy, comfortable interiors and many standard safety features were part of the '04 Expedition's appeal as well.

Three trims were offered: an XLS (with an accent on sports styling) was introduced for the first time, joining the XLT and Eddie Bauer models. An NBX options package, which focused on features that improved off-road performance, was available for the XLT model only.

Drivers looking for luxury could opt for the Eddie Bauer line, which featured rich leather upholstery and rugged but elegant detailing. The XLS and XLT models had plenty of comfort built in, though, including anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes, tilt steering wheel, cruise control, heated fold-away power mirrors with security approach lamps, power door locks, remote keyless entry, power-adjustable pedals, and an AM/FM premium stereo with CD/cassette player.

Strength was also a big selling point for the 2004 Expedition. With an optional towing package, and the upgraded 5.4 liter, 260 horsepower Triton V8 engine, the Expedition could haul up to 8,950 pounds. The basic engine (a 4.6 liter overhead cam Triton V-8) put out 232 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque.

All this space, comfort, and power has its price. In addition to its hefty sticker cost, the '04 Ford Expedition isn't a very cheap date at the gas pumps, either: it's rated at 13-15 mpg city, 17-19 mpg highway, depending on model.
