One the claims to fame for any vehicle is consistency in terms of value, amenities, style and innovation. The Expedition has maintained its luster in the full-sized SUV segment with no signs of decline in sight; since entering the market with its 1997 edition, Ford still does America proud with it’s 2015 Ford Expedition Platinum Edition.
Flaunting a handsome exterior for starters, this review model was dressed in a gorgeous Ruby Red Metallic, and embellished with 22-inch polished aluminum wheels (Platinum); power moonroof; attention-grabbing powered running boards; a three-bar chrome grille; and practical amenities including the power liftgate.
Under the hood, the 3.5L, V-6 signature ECOBOOST engine with six-speed select shift gets a combined city/highway efficiency of 18 miles per gallon. Dual zone climate control; the very helpful Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross-traffic alert; Navigation; heated front and second-row seats; a rear view camera; the signature SYNC with MyFord Touch Voice-Activated Communications and Entertainment System; an 8-inch touch-screen; two USB ports; and plush Ebony leather bucket seats for passengers to enjoy in optimal comfort are just a few of the highlights internally.
And for $61,720 including ($59,370 starting MSRP), the Platinum Expedition will continue to give drivers a consistent anticipation to hit the road thanks to great value.
