2006 Ford Expedition news, pictures, specifications, and information

The 2006 Ford Expedition continues its tradition of leadership in the full-size SÚV §egmènt wîth its combination of interior versatility, driving control and safety. It has won the Polk Automotive Loyalty Award in its §egmènt two years in a row.

Class-leading available features include fold-flat-to-the-floor second- and third-row seating, class-exclusive PowerFold™ third-row seat, second-row CenterSlide™ section, heated- and-cooled front seats, keyless entry keypad, AdvanceTrac® wîth Roll Stability Control™, Safety Canopy™ system, reverse sensing system and power-adjustable pedals.

With 110.5 cubic feet of cargo volume, the most hip room in all three rows and most third-row legroom, Expedition continues to offer best-in-class interior space.

Expedition also is the first SÚV in its class to offer independent rear suspension for improved ride and h andling.

The optional four-wheel-drive system automatically adjusts to a variety of surface conditions.

Expedition is available in XLS, XLT, XLT Sport, Eddie Bauer, Limited and King Ranch trims. It is built in Wayne, Mich.

Design and Equipment

Expedition exterior design cues are big, bold and confident. It exudes a confidence-inspiring stance, wîth large headlamps, taillamps, mirrors and door h andles.

Later this year, two new paint colors – Pewter Clearcoat Metallic and Dark Copper Clearcoat Metallic – join the exterior palette, while a Medium Flint Grey interior theme will become newly available on Limited models. A chrome-tipped exhaust now is st andard on the top-of-the-line King Ranch version.

The Expedition interior provides versatility wîth a fold-flat-into-the-floor third row 60/40 seat, a 40/20/40 second row seat wîth manual CenterSlide™ section and best-in-class cargo volume.

The spacious interior offers seamless, adjustable flexibility to meet the ever-changing dem ands of its owners' active lifestyles.

Powertrain and Chassis

Expedition comes wîth the new 5.4-liter, 3-valve Triton™ V-8 engine first introduced on the 2004 Ford F-150 as st andard equipment. New to Expedition last year, it gives this full-size SÚV the horsepower and torque buyers want along wîth environmentally responsible emissions.

The engine has three-valve aluminum cylinder heads and provides 300 horsepower. By using two intake valves instead of one, along wîth charge-motion-control valves, the new cylinder head assures optimum delivery of the air-fuel mixture to the cylinder at any engine speed. The centrally located spark plug and computer-controlled variable valve timing help improve combustion efficiency and reduce emissions.

When properly equipped, the two-wheel drive Expedition is rated to tow up to 8,900 pounds.

AdvanceTrac® electronic stability enhancement wîth Roll Stability Control and Control Trac™ 4x4 systems are available.

Safety and Security

Expedition has received the federal government's highest frontal crash test rating five years in a row. It has Ford's -leading Personal Safety System® as st andard equipment. The available exclusive Safety Canopy™ system has side air curtains that cover approximately two-thirds of first- and second-row glass. A special sensor monitors vehicle orientation and allows the Safety Canopy to provide rollover protection.

Expedition is available wîth AdvanceTrac® wîth Roll Stability Control™ technology. Únlike any other system, Roll Stability Control features roll-rate sensing and correcting capability, offering assistance to the driver in maintaining vehicle control during extreme maneuvers. The system automatically engages counter measures to help the driver maintain maximum control and further reduce the risk of rollover.

Four-wheel-disc ABS wîth the Brake Assist system is st andard on all models.

Eddie Bauer, Limited and King Ranch versions include a driver's door-mounted keyless entry keypad. A tire-pressure monitoring system is st andard on XLT, XLT Sport, Eddie Bauer and Limited trims.
