#5 of 36 New 2007 or 2008 Expedition - Everest vs. New GMC Yukon
Nov 17, 2005 (2:31 pm)
Any thoughts on when we will see official infomation/photos on the updated Expedition and or the new extended version. I have heard it called Expedition Max, Expedition XL or Everest.
We will be in the market this next year (earlier the better), but do not want to make a choice until I can see Ford's offering.
Any info at all would be great. I have looked at the spyshots, but so far all I can see is ones with camo on them. Are there any out there yet from Ford?
Also concerned about engine sizes available as we do tow (boat and/or travel trailer). Also trying to find out anything that is known about transmissions that may be offered (how many speed, etc.)
Thanks to any and all that may be able to help!
We have been Ford owners in the past and had good experience with them, but the differences now between what the new GMC is going to offer could be significant. It looks like the only large issue for GMC is going to be still not having Independent Rear Suspension, but not sure that is enough to rule it out.
#6 of 36 Tow vehicle replacement for Excursion??

I sure hope the towing capacity meets or exceeds the 10K+ of my Excursions. Sure don't want an other MFG.
Curious what IRS will do to towing capabilities!
... & the V-10, I have had such great luck with the four I have owned.

are starting to come back down, so maybe the market for full sized SUVs will come back.

Well, GM better hope the market comes back, because they've got a lot riding on their new SUVs and trucks. To their credit however, the Tahoe, Yukon and Escalade all look great and offer good fuel economy too, so hopefully that will help them out.
But the Escalade is really outstanding. 403hp! 6 speed transmission! 22" rims!

I heard it would be called the Expedition EL, or L, something like that.
A stretched Navigator based on this new vehicle will also come out at the same time, which I last heard at being fall 2006.
