The Refined All-New 2018 Ford Expedition Full-Size SUV
Ford recently unveiled the all-new Expedition full-size SUV, providing families with flexible space, more technology and all-new safety and connectivity features. The 2018 Ford Expedition will come standard with a new, more powerful 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and a class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission, giving it more capability than any other full-size SUV.
The debut of the all-new Expedition was done with the help of the Dallas Cowboys in Texas, and Ford and the Dallas firefighters surprised a local first responder with a brand-new Expedition. Texas continues to be America’s bestselling full-size SUV market.
“When the Expedition was introduced 20 years ago, it set the standard for active families who simply needed a big and strong SUV to take them places,” said Joe Hinrichs of Ford. “Today’s families want even more smart technology to help them cover more ground safely, more efficiently and more comfortably – all while staying connected to friends and family.”
An all-new high-strength steel frame and aluminum-alloy body give the 2018 Ford Expedition excellent off-road and towing capabilities. These advanced materials helped save nearly 300 pounds, and allowed Ford engineers to include more technology and convenience features.
There is no shortage of connectivity technologies found in the new Expedition, including wireless charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SYNC Connect with FordPass, a 12-speaker B&O PLAY audio system and six USB chargers.
As more than 50 percent of Ford Expedition owners value towing capability, the Expedition features a powerful EcoBoost engine and available Pro Trailer Backup Assist. Ford expects the new Expedition to deliver the best towing capability of any full-size SUV.
In addition to the new engine and transmission, the Expedition features available Intelligent 4WD with an electronic limited-slip differential and a new Terrain Management System. This setup allows drivers to switch between modes like Normal, Tow/Haul, Eco, Sand, and Mud/Rut depending on the conditions.
