1. From what you have said it appears there is sufficient power being drained from the new battery when the vehicle is turned off to completely flatten the battery. With the number of power driven items in these vehicles I cannot sit here and guess what it might be. (For example, the electric motors in the seats in some vehicles malfunction and start draining power sufficient to flatten a battery. Power window switches sometimes malfunction and do not cut power to the electric motor in the door, etc etc.). I assume you have checked the obvious, ie. there are no lights remaining on in the vehicle and that the entertainment system is fully powering off normally etc.
2. The alternator in the vehicle could be faulty and may be generating insufficient charge when you are driving. When this occurs any power shortfall is drawn from the battery and it will eventually go flat.
I suggest you take the vehicle to a competent auto electrical specialist and have it checked out. You will only find the fault by having the vehicle inspected and tested.
If the alternator checks out OK he should then be able to trace the source of any power drain for you if that is the cause of the battery discharge.
Finally, phone up the service department of you local ford dealer and ask if there have been other 08 Expeditions they have had in the workshop with this problem. If so they should be able to tell you what they found to be the cause or causes in those instances. It is useful to know but it does not mean the cause will be the same in your case.

This could be a bad battery, just a drained one or bad alternator. A simple test is to jump start the car. Once you have it started, remove the jumper cable and the negative cable of the battery. If the car dies, then the alternator is bad. You would have to inspect the wiring for the alternator for bad connections. If none are found then the alternator may be surely bad.
You can charge the battery when you have the jumper cable connected to an idling car. If you have the alternator replaced you can let your car charge it. It is possible that batteries may go bad when you have it totally drained in which case you may have it replaced.
