2008 model year changes

A new King Ranch model is the big news for Ford's 2008 Expedition. The new model brings an image of "rugged sophistication," with unique machined aluminum wheels and special badging outside, plus Chaparral leather trim and upholstery on all rows, wood trim, and a power-folding third-row seat inside. After being redesigned for 2007, the Expedition receives a wider range of standard equipment, and some newly available features, for 2008. Most notably, an available rearview camera system helps with visibility when backing up or towing a trailer. Power running boards are also being introduced as an option across the line. Keyless keypad entry, an electrochromic mirror, heated power mirrors, an overhead console, illuminated visors, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are now standard across the model line. Power adjustable pedals, power rear quarter windows, a universal garage door opener, and a reverse sensing system are standard on the top Limited and King Ranch models. There's also a new chrome-clad, 18-inch wheel option on XLT models, and a chrome exhaust tip has been added to the Eddie Bauer model.
