The 2008 Ford Expedition is a full-size SUV that Ford has filled to the brim with enviable features, both standard and optional.
The standard features list on the 2008 Ford Expedition is impressive, even in XLT trim. Edmunds writes that the "well-equipped XLT" offers "automatic headlights, running boards, a Class III trailer hitch, air-conditioning (with rear controls)" and "a six-speaker CD stereo with auxiliary input jack," along with "cruise control and full power accessories."
Moving up to the Eddie Bauer edition of the Ford Expedition 2008, ConsumerGuide finds that "dual-zone automatic climate controls, leather upholstery, 10-way power driver seat, 6-way power passenger seat," and "Audiophile AM/FM radio w/in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer" are all included as standard features.
On the even more luxurious Ford Expedition Limited trim, J.D. Power says to expect a "rear parking sensor" and "wood and leather-trimmed steering wheel" to go along with the "perforated leather seats" that come standard. Finally, the 2008 Ford Expedition King Ranch incorporates all of the Limited trim's standard features and adds "upgraded leather upholstery, [and] unique interior and exterior trim," according to ConsumerGuide.
While the Ford Expedition's standard features are impressive, its options list makes it a true class standout. On lesser trims, many of the Limited's features can be added as stand-alone options, but for all trims of the Ford Expedition 2008 lineup, options include a "DVD entertainment system," "iPod integration," and "satellite radio," according to ConsumerGuide.
Edmunds adds that "exclusive to the Eddie Bauer, Limited and King Ranch are a navigation system, power liftgate and a rearview backup camera." Kelley Blue Book notes that a "340-watt audio system" and "PowerFold third-row seat that folds flat with the touch of a button" are also available on the Ford Expedition 2008.
A full assortment of technological goodies propels the 2008 Ford Expedition near the top of its class in terms of features.
