They only came as V8's so it's either the 4.6L or the 5.4L Triton. (if it says Triton V8 on some badge then you got the 5.4L) 5.4L has like 270HP and 280-290ish TQ...not sure but my mom always thought her 01 Exped with the Triton was a bit underpowered. Should be great for the trail though. Good inbetwen power and low end TQ. Definitely good for crawling.
