I currently own the 2003 Expedition which I purchased in October 2002. I will likely replace it within the next year or two. The 2003 model has the gear shifter on the steering wheel where it should be. While researching the new models I've noticed the shifter is now taking up space where a cup holder should be. Although there are still two cup holders next to it on the right hand side I find it not only inconveniet but it also places the shifter in the firing line of many drink spills to come. Since the automatic shifter is a necessity and not a convenience it should be put back on the steering wheel as in previous models allowing the center console area to be used for convenience features such as cup holders and tray space. I hope Ford will make these changes for the 2014 model. Otherwise, I will likely look at other makes/models.
