- Unique Style with King Ranch leather/styling, Love the backup sensors in safety package.
- King Ranch should have had everything Limited did if it was truely the first class of Expiditions
No excuse for not having heated/cooled seats, and passenger power seats which come with Limited because King Ranch is supposed to be the top of the class.

- Beautiful leather seat covering
- for a premium model - poorly accessorized
Expedition King Ranch - an F-150 KR Bait & Switch!
Talk about a bait and switch! When I first saw the interior and exterior of the Ford 2005 F-150 King Ranch model pickup truck I fell in lust with it, hoping soon to see an Expedition version. When in December of 2005 I finally came upon the Expedition King Ranch model I was very dissapointed - with what is supposedly a premium version of the Expedition...
1. one can not order the Expedition KR with power folding mirrors, and yet this is available or standard on other models including the Limited.
2. The Expedition KR front dash and console are no where near as elegant as the F-150 KR. It looks no more attractive than an XLT or Eddie Bauer - depending who you ask, and downright ugly when compared to the F-150 KR.
3. Electronic seat heaters and coolers come with or are optional on other Expeditions and even on the F-150 King Ranch - but this is not at all available on the Expedition King Ranch!
4. Exterior is easily confused as an Eddie Bauer - similar (only) 17" wheels like those on the Limited (with goldish paint).
5. The oversize King Ranch plaques on the sides are trying too hard to make someone feel he is getting something special.
Whatever college edumacated idiot that came up with this model needs a refresher course in what customers look for in premium vehicles.
My advice - skip the Expedition KR and go for a well laid out, tastefully appointed Expedition Limited, or for not much more money the Lincoln Navigator (arguably a better value - if one can stand the front end grille and its associated "yuppie snob" image; the Navigator comes with 18" Wheels, and can have HID lights and retrating side running boards for those who do not like the Red Neck look)....read morehide
