Ford Expedition Car Insurance
Originally intended to be the follow-up to the infamous Bronco, the Ford Expedition is now a solid part of the Ford SUV range. Launched in 1997, it’s a full-size SUV, claiming to be the largest vehicle in Ford’s fleet. However, looking at the Ford 450, we beg to differ. If you’re looking for a car that can sit up to eight passengers comfortably, the Expedition is your vehicle.
