While the Expedition received a freshening for 2015, it was still vastly outdated and outclassed compared to its competition. This huge coach does has some high points, but falls short in some key areas. It's noisy and has a low-rent interior and a frustrating infotainment system. Fuel economy, at 14 mpg, is also slightly behind the curve. On the other hand, power delivery from the 3.5-liter turbo V6 is effortless.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"I bought this vehicle to pull a 5,000 lb travel trailer, and it does it very well. No problems driving up steep grades, and a minimal amount of trailer sway."

Anonymous, FL (2015 Ford Expedition)

"Excellent power and acceleration, very good handling for such a large and heavy vehicle."

Tony W., TX (2015 Ford Expedition)

"Great for a 6"

Anonymous, FL (2015 Ford Expedition)

"Great power, fair economy for what it is"

Jeff O., NE (2015 Ford Expedition)

"3.5L eccoboost engine is an excellent engine. Best on the market."

Anonymous, AL (2015 Ford Expedition)

"It drives extremely well. It accelerates well from a stop and has plenty of power and responsiveness for passing. I feel sure and confident in it whether i am towing a 7000 lb trailer or going down a rocky desert trail."

Anonymous, NV (2015 Ford Expedition)

"The Expedition does have good acceleration and great braking. However, it handles terrible in the wind; there were times I felt like I'd blow off the road. It feels top heavy, so taking a curve at normal speed felt uneasy. It's a good enough vehicle but just not my favorite."

Anonymous, TX (2015 Ford Expedition)

"the 3.5L Twin Turbo EcoBoost engine is excellent. You'd never know it wasn't a V8"

Anonymous, MA (2015 Ford Expedition)

"I purchased the EL model and the extra room comes in handy for trips to Costco and to the bayhouse where we seem to take many items. Also good for towing the 20' boat."

DAVID F., TX (2015 Ford Expedition)

"The eccobost turbocharged engine is extremely strong, delivering strong performance and decent fuel economy for such a large vehicle. The engine is much stronger than previous V-8 versions I have owned."

Anonymous, AL (2015 Ford Expedition)

"The 6 cylinders responds like a large V8 and the steering is very nimble. Use to pull a travel trailer."

JIM A., NC (2015 Ford Expedition)

"Sometimes there is a slight delay in acceleration."

Anonymous, MN (2015 Ford Expedition)

TOM N., AZ (2015 Ford Expedition)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
