Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.
Best Bets get average or better mpg, have average or better reliability, good crash-test ratings, and our experts' recommendations.

Vehicle Overview The Ford Expedition is a truck-based full-size SUV that can carry up to eight people. The SUV comes in XLT, Eddie Bauer, Limited and King Ranch trim levels. It competes with the Chevrolet Tahoe, Toyota Sequoia and Dodge Durango. There's a longer version available, called the Expedition EL. It's about 15 inches longer and has a standard third row of seats. It competes with the Chevrolet Suburban.
New for 2010 For 2010, the Expedition receives trailer-sway control standard, to help prevent trailer sway during towing.
Exterior The front features a squared-off four-bar grille and angular headlights, and the rear window can open independent of the liftgate. Regular- and extended-length Expeditions sport the same exterior styling.

Interior The Expedition can seat up to nine occupants across three rows of seats. The steering wheel, gauge clusters and climate controls are similar to those in Ford's F-150 pickup truck. Thanks to an independent rear suspension, the third-row seat folds flat into the floor — a feature not offered in all competitors. A power-folding mechanism for the third-row seat is optional on lower trims and standard on higher ones.

Safety The Expedition has not been crash-tested by our preferred source, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It scores five stars in government front-crash tests, which is the highest rating possible. A new trailer-sway control feature is standard and works in conjunction with the electronic stability system to detect trailer movement and apply braking, as well as reduce engine torque to keep the vehicle in control. A standard MyKey system allows parents to impose vehicle restrictions on teen drivers. Parents can limit the vehicle's top speed, add a persistent seat-belt reminder, limit the volume on the stereo to 44 percent of its maximum volume, and have a speed chime activate at 45, 55 or 65 mph.
