The residual value as per Ford after 3 years is 49%. I'd say that's normal for a full size SUV in today's world.
It only hurts when you sell it so if you plan on keeping it for awhile, don't concern yourself about the loss of value, just enjoy it.

I would wait because the new Expediton will be nailed to dealers showroom floors, and HUGE discounts will be here by christmas. also , yes, basically your Expedition will be worth about 20k in 2 years: figure a drop of at least 55 % of msrp after 24 months and less than 25k miles in Excellent condition.(asumes new vehicles are not being heavely rebated at the time of trade/sell.) Also be advised that a more powerful engine is on the way for '08.
