2000 Ford Expedition Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Ford's full-size sport utility vehicle debuted as a 1997 model and is built off the F-Series pickup chassis. The Lincoln Navigator is the Expedition's luxurious corporate twin and offers a more powerful engine, standard leather upholstery and some convenience features not offered on the Expedition.

Interior
The 1999 Expedition and Navigator were the first production vehicles available with power-adjustable pedals, a feature that allows moving the pedals over a three-inch range to accommodate shorter drivers. For 2000, the adjustable pedals are standard instead of optional.

Seats for six are standard on the XLT model. New this year are optional captain's chairs for the middle row, replacing a split-bench seat. Dual front captain's chairs are standard on the Eddie Bauer model and optional on the XLT. The Eddie Bauer version also comes with a removable three-place rear bench for nine-passenger capacity, a feature optional on the XLT.

Exterior
Available only in four-door styling, the Expedition has a rear liftgate with a window that opens separately. Though the Expedition has a different grille and front-end trim, it shares major styling cues with the F-Series pickup.

Under the Hood
Two engines are available. A 215-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 is standard on all models except the 4WD Eddie Bauer, which comes with a 260-horsepower, 5.4-liter V-8. The latter is optional on other models. Two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive models are available. The 4WD s...

Safety
Side-impact airbags for the front seats will be offered as an option later in the model year. Also coming later in the year is the Reverse-Sensing System, which detects objects while the vehicle is backing up. The system, also used in the Ford Windstar minivan, alerts drivers that objects behind the vehicle are within 5.9 feet with warning beeps. As objects become closer, the beeps sound more frequently and become a continuous tone when the object is within 10 inches.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
