I'm half kidding here, because I know how to measure my garage dimensions; but I just saw that the width of the Expedition is a whopping 92"!! My goodness, I don't think it would fit into many standard garage's with such a wide profile. I guess I could simply use the power retractable mirrors to shrink this number down to a more manageable 79", but I'm afraid I'll forget to do it and smash right into the damn garage. LOL Do you guys garage your Expy's?
My wife and I had twin boys 8 months ago and I would like to "future proof" our family vehicle by purchasing something large and with a good tow rating. The Expy is my first choice, but the dimensions are tough for me to deal with.
Not sure what you are referencing for width--anything over 80 inches requires clearance lights by federal law. Mirrors dont count. At 92", that is 4" less than 8 feet--most garage doors are 10' or more. My '03 is same width as '07 and fits in just fine. The Navigators have retractable mirrors.
You said that the expy that you looked at last week had extendable towing mirrors. Were they actually telescoping or are you talking about the fold in feature? I was told that telescoping mirrors are not available. Could it have have been a dealer add on?

Where you get that info? My uncle hangs garage doors and the ONLY ones wider than 8' are either two car garages or special order. If its a one car garage or a two car(or more) garage with independant doors they are 8' wide and 7' tall.
