I love my Expedition. It is built on a truck frame, so it is solid. It has a powerful engine. It seats 8, with a third row, but the two back rows fold down, the rear one with electric motors on switches, so it has a large bed for work and hauling, enclosed for weather and security. It has a solid hitch and the power to pull very large loads. It is switchable from 2-wheel to 4-wheel drive and off-road 4-wheeling. It has a short turning radius and is short enough to fit in the garage. It also has a roof rack and the Eddie Bauer edition has a video screen that drops down for the people in the rear. Gas mileage is not great (12-15 mpg), but it's worth it if you need a good vehicle to haul loads or people.
