He's talking about the upcoming generation, not current.

You're pretty much getting the Expedition for $1,500 here...
Except that's only a $500 Expedition behind the plow.

My attitude is any 15 year old vehicle will have some degree of any of these, he's just willing to disclose it.

If that was a western plow I'd offer him $2,500 today. Use plow as spare and keep expedition in Hayward to clear driveway and tow so I could TDI up there and have a truck if needed.

I'm actually shocked the front suspension on that can still support the weight of a 7.5 foot plow. Didn't those collapse on themselves? Or was that just the Navi's?

Another item of note, the Navi and Expo have higher tow ratings than their 'Hoe and 'Sclade counterparts, but I can tell you first hand, I would rather tow with the SRA GM products.

Oh yea, that 2020 Escalade gets IRS. It was actually approved for the K2Y's, but the 2009 bankruptcy kinda threw a wrench into plans.

Maybe Ford just got the suspension tuning wrong for towing, or maybe I'm just not experienced enough. I've towed with SRA 'Burb's and the Expo, and I felt much more confident in the 'Burbs

Not sure what that Expo has done to it. Intake, tune, and meth (I believe it's already got a 3 BAR MAP from the factory) and the 3.5's will REALLY boogie. This tuner company is claiming they have 3.5 EB F-150's with tune only running mid-12's.

There was a tune/map sensor/race gas only SHO running mid 12's at GLD last summer. Made me tempted to throw a race gas tune on mine!

F-150's do come with 3 bar MAP sensors stock...

So much discussion for a vehicle that sells in the 8 to 10k range a year.... escalade will always be the sales leader between the two

95k lol, who is buying these vehicles? 10 thousand millionaires a year that's who
