Same old me, but I got the guy who built my van to do a “Sitting Down with VocalVirgo” chat about what it was like to build my van. This was fun. He used to do this in the 90’s and 00’s. Mine was the first van he’s done since, and now he wants to start doing them again because he’s a big supporter of the #VanLife.
Let’s just start this out right: This is the reason Ford was able to rationalize (environmentally) killing off the Excursion years ago. This beast can hold 8 passengers and is powerful AND doesn’t suck at the gas pump. Oh, and it has a more powerful V6 than the old Excursion’s V8. Seriously. This is that f*cking crazy 3.5 EcoBoost V6 that makes… wait for it… 400 HP and 485 lb/ft Torque (with 93 Octane… Tiny bit less with 87 Octane). Um, that’s craziness! Why would anyone get a V8 anymore?? All I have to say is this: Holy Wow. They made good on their promise to responsibly replace the Excursion (and then some) and they finally did it (this time) with the new Expedition. Tick-Tock guys, but still good work! This is what I would have chosen to pull my (non-existant) Airstream!)
By the way- this thing is upwards of $80,000. Yes, for reals. (Base models start at $51,695)
For all your questions and curiosities, go to EXPEDITION. I’m too lazy to type out all the details.
