The new 2002 Ford Expedition SUV is designed to be tough,
highly functional, and smart - all the while surrounding
its passengers in tremendous comfort. Its rugged appearance
is an indication of its gritty performance and outstanding
capabilities, both as a casual and working vehicle.
The 2002 line up boasts two exceptional models
- the 2002 Ford Expedition XLT and the Expedition Eddie
Bauer - each differing on the luxury and performance fronts
according to what you have in mind for the use of your tough
Inside the 2002 Ford Expedition XLT is cloth
upholstery, a 40/60 split folding rear seat to accommodate
extra cargo, and power adjustable pedals. Optional features
include a six-way power driver's seat, or cloth captain's
The 2002 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer boasts leather seating,
six-way power driver's seat, and memory feature for the
driver's seat and pedal. The Eddie Bauer also makes second-row
reclining captain chairs available, and a third-row removable
bench seat is a standard feature. You can even add a rear
seat entertainment system with 6.8-inch LCD screen and VHS
player to keep the troops occupied on a long journey.
The XLT model headlines a rear chrome step bumper,
and 4WD models have two front hooks. The vehicle sports
a bright grille (Eddie Bauer has a color-keyed grille),
and both models are equipped with privacy glass. Back to
the XLT, the Comfort and Convenience Group features dual
heated power outside mirrors and sixteen-inch aluminum wheels
with all-terrain tires. The XLT No Boundaries Group adds
a black monochromatic exterior, seventeen-inch five-spoke
wheels, and chrome accents.
Meanwhile, up another level to the XLT Premium Sport Appearance
Group we find seventeen-inch, ten-spoke cast aluminum wheels,
side step bars, front fog lamps and skid plates (the latter
on the 4WD model).
Taking it up another notch, the Eddie Bauer Premier Group
sports illuminated running boards as well as seventeen-inch
The standard powerhouse of the Expedition XLT
is comprised of a 4.6-litre, SOHC Triton V8 engine that
churns out 232 horsepower and 291 lbs-ft of torque. Optional
on the XLT and standard on the Eddie Bauer is an outstanding
5.4-litre Triton V8 engine with an impressive output of
260 horsepower and 350 lbs-ft of torque.
A smooth ride can be attributed to the five-link rear suspension,
while the limited slip differential optimizes control and
traction. A four-corner air suspension is available to automatically
adjust the vehicle's height according to its load; it even
kneels down to lower the step-in height to make it easier
to get in and out.
Safety and Security
The Ford Expedition is equipped with a passenger
depowered air bag, driver depowered air bag, and optional
side impact airbags. Other safety standards include three-point
seatbelts, remote keyless entry system, theft deterrent
system, and illuminated entry. Each vehicle comes with a
rear wiper and washer, and the Reverse Sensing System warns
you of obstacles up to six feet away from the rear of your
SUV to avoid accidents and to facilitate parking.
