A 2008 used Ford Expedition is tough to beat when it comes to power, utility and sheer size. The largest SUV available from Ford (when ordered in EL extended edition), a 2008 used Ford Expedition translates into one of the better sport-utility bargains on the previously-owned market.
This beefy truck-based SUV was completely redesigned for 2007, which makes it one of the most modern secondhand high capacity haulers out there. The biggest change for the 2008 used Ford Expedition was the introduction of the range-topping King Ranch trim level. This special breed of 2008 used Ford Expedition was designed to please those who require the absolute last word in luxury and comfort in their full-size sport-utility vehicle. Included on the King Ranch are a huge number of options and features: rear parking sensors, special Chaparral leather seats for not one but all three rows of seating, a wood and leather-trimmed steering wheel, heating and cooling for the front two captain's chairs and enormous 18-inch wheels. The King Ranch also offers upscale wood trim that can't be found in other versions of the 2008 used Ford Expedition.

Other highlights of the 2008 used Ford Expedition include its very impressive 5.4-liter V-8 engine. Thanks to its ability to produce 300 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque, there is very little that the Expedition can't accomplish in terms of towing, hauling or slogging through tough off-road trails. The latter is also aided and abetted by an available four-wheel drive system that really helps out when the going gets rough. The vehicle's standard six-speed automatic transmission is a revelation, and its smoothness and competency becomes especially clear when towing at the 2008 used Ford Expedition's 9,200 lbs limit. Topping it all off is fuel economy that comes in at a respectable 14 miles per gallon in stop and go driving and 20 miles per gallon during highway cruising.
Although the King Ranch edition of the vehicle might get the most attention, even the entry-level 2008 used Ford Expedition is worthy of consideration on the secondhand market thanks to its high level of standard equipment. Items such as power windows and door locks, air conditioning with controls for those sitting at the very back, cruise control, a trailer hitch and running boards are all included on the 2008 used Ford Expedition XLT. Throw in three rows of seating for as many as eight passengers, as well as 108.2 cubic feet of total storage space (130.8 cubic feet in the Expedition EL) and it becomes easy to see why the 2008 used Ford Expedition is one of the most sought after full-size SUV deals on the previously-owned market.
