What, Ford doesn't DRUG TEST their truck designers anymore? The 2007 Expedition makes the previous model AND the NEW GM SUV's look like beauty contestants by comparison!
If Ford's recovery is riding on vehicles like the 2007 Expedition to save it, I hope the Ford Motor Company ship brought plenty of lifeboats, because there's a HUGE iceberg named Toyota is coming right at it.
Hope you Ford fans can swim.

The Sequoia is downright ancient. It dates back to what, 2001? The styling also needs to be updated. To me, it barely competes anymore.
To me, the class leader in the non luxury full size segment would be the new Chevrolet Tahoe/GMC Yukon. They have great interiors and powerful engines, and the styling is very clean. I really like the look of the new Expedition, but it needs more power. The Armada just looks weird and the Durango feels cheap inside.

Although the new Expedition has a nice exterior, I am afraid that it wont be able to rival its Toyota/GM rivals. The interior looks downright cheap to me, something that plagues Ford. As for power, im afraid it still wont have enough punch to keep it ahead of the game. Dismal fuel prices will also keep sales down, I expect.

Styling is a personal thing. While I think GM did a great job with the exterior styling, the new Expedition doesn't bother me, and certainly wouldn't do much to sway my opinion much in terms of a purchase.
What "would" sway my opinion is the interior. Here the Expedition has a huge advantage with the much more flexible fold-into-the-floor 3rd-row seats.
I also prefer the IRS on the Expedition, and its 6-speed automatic over the 4-speed/solid rear axle Suburban.

I personally like the 07's styling, especially in black with the limited trim. Hopefully the new 6spd will make the engine a little more responsive. Ive never felt the 5.4L is underpowered, jus felt its not as lively or quick as its competitors V8's
