Ford Unveils All-New 2018 Expedition Full-Size SUV
For families looking for flexible space, more technology and the latest safety and connectivity features, Ford has unveiled the all-new 2018 Expedition. The new Ford Expedition will come standard with a powerful new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission, giving it more capability than any other full-size SUV on sale today.
“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.”
Ford debuted the all-new Expedition with the help of the Dallas Cowboys at an event in Texas, and Ford and the Dallas firefighters surprised a local first responder with a brand-new Expedition. Texas continues to be the country’s number one full-size SUV market.
The all-new high-strength steel frame and aluminum-alloy body give the 2018 Ford Expedition excellent off-road and towing capabilities. The use of advanced materials also helped save nearly 300 pounds and allowed Ford engineers to include more technology and convenience features than ever before.
A variety of new connectivity technologies are 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.
More than 50 percent of Ford Expedition owners value towing capability, so 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.
The 2018 Ford Expedition also has an available Intelligent 4WD system with an electronic limited-slip differential and new Terrain Management System. This system allows drivers to switch between modes like Normal, Tow/Haul, Eco, Sand, and Mud/Rut depending on driving conditions.
