The X5 was faster and cornered better; the X5 also suffered from being in the shop as often as not. The layout of the gauges and controls is easy to understand and no controls are too far out of easy reach. I did have some cracked radiator hoses replaced and I ordered a tune up, but other than that, I love this truck. Also, pop-up tie-downs in the cargo area would be awesome. Everything works and seems to have been well cared for.
There are 2 12V outlets to be used for plugs as well. Acceleration is a little sluggish from a rolling 30-45 mph, as it doesn't seem to shift into the right gear. The sole powertrain is a flex-fuel engine that can run on E85. The Expedition comes with running boards as standard equipment. There's almost no choice with respect to powertrains. It competes with the Chevrolet Tahoe, Toyota Sequoia and Dodge Durango.
