My Expedition is a regular length 2010 4x4. I only have about 300 miles on it. We drove it on a two lane road (no interstate) for about 80 miles and the meter was showing 14 mpg driving at 65-70. I was lust wondering what this SUV would average. The window sticker shows 12 city and 17 Hwy.

The 2006 is a different beast than the '07 and later.

My '07 with HD Tow (3.73 axle) can get 20mpg on the highway across Pennsylvania if I keep the speed down.

But I'd buy a Prius if I cared that much and they have the additional advantage of no speeding tickets, just claim the throttle stuck open. That lame excuse never seemed to work!

I am in a 2006 4x4 regular length. I get 11.5-12 in the city (85%) around 16-17 on the highway. I am not lightfooted, but I tried for 45 days and did not see any real improvements (did not unhook the battery for trans reset though, just a little justification test for myself). It gets about the same as my 2003 2wd supercrew got. Thanks, Mike.

2008 4x4 EL

I have seen 20 mpg on the highway, with only 2 adults and in good weather. This was for a 750 mile trip over the Appalachian Mtns.

This winter we made the same trip, 2 adults, 4 kids, 1 huge dog, car top carrier and in 4x4 auto most of the trip because of weather - 15.1 mpg.

In town we avg about 13-14 mpg.

Right now I see about 11 mpg with all city driving in an 07 Limited EL 4x4. I rarely make long distance trips. I also drive my truck hard though so I don't worry all that much about the mileage. I tend to top her off about every 3 weeks or so which isn't bad.

If I really need the MPG I just take the Honda Civic out of the cargo area and drive that....

Chuck S....You are so correct sir! I have a 2010 Toyota Prius that I commute to work in. It gets around 48 on average, driving it very hard 80-85 interstate.

It does make you appreciate getting in the Exp on the weekend!

Thanks to all for the follow-up! I was just curious on what kind of MPG's the Expedition got, after looking at the sticker. My 2010 Prius window sticker states in can get 60 MPG's. The best mine has ever seen in 52.

The EXP is a Awesome driving machine.

thought I'd throw my #'s in the mix

city - 12 mpg...but I drive a tiny bit "aggressively"...and it sits idling alot with the A/C on
hwy - 17 mpg...we have a 10 mile stretch of highway I drive. so cannot honestly give an accurate #


it's a V-8 at 6,000+ lbs...I love it.

07 EL XLT 4x4 w/ 18"s and 3.73s sees about 16 average and 19 to 20 on the highway. If you can get non ethanol gas it makes about 1 mpg difference on E-10 vs regular. This is also on 89 oct (that's all we use in our fleet trucks).

I'd expect that the 10's might get .05 mpg better then the 07 to 09 due to the electric fans.

Quit checking your mileage and go live a happy life.

My '08 BMW wagon gets 19 mpg and on the same commute my '07 EL gets about 13 mpg. So the EL gets 2/3, or about 66%, of the mileage the BMW gets.

My EL carries 8 people, the BMW 5. So the BMW carries 5/8, or about 62% of the people the EL carries. I don't fault the BMW for carrying fewer people. And I don't fault the EL for its healthy appetite.

Enjoy your vehicle and ignore the mileage.

Wife's 2010 4x4 gets 15-17mpg. Reg length with 20s.

I hope the engineer that said put 3.31 gears in these Expeditions got fired.

Our 08 Limited has averaged under 13 MPG for 4,000 miles since we've owned it (Sep 09). We do mostly city/rural driving and have been on the highway very little. Onboard coputer says we're getting 12.6 over that timeframe. Don't know how accurate that is thogh.
