Considering two in ten sales of Ford's Expedition come from Texas — and so not to distract from the company's environmentally friendly message at the Detroit show — Ford chose the Houston auto show to launch its newest large SUV late last week. Gaining much-needed cues from the latest F-Series pickups, the new Expedition gets similar upgrades as its Explorer did last year, including electronic rollover protection and six-speed transmission, plus an EL version that's long enough to compete with the Chevrolet Suburban. Ford's betting the market for truck-like SUVs will be decline slowly, with Texas likely being the last place it'll trail off.
