The most recent 2018 Ford Expedition will be quite a remarkable model. As we know, this model had a lot of successes in the past, and according to Ford, the model for 2018 will be the most successful so far. The last redesign for the F-150 model has included the weight reduction and the same thing we can expect with the latest Expedition model. Engineers will do everything to reduce the total weight and that is certainly very good news. Not only the weight will be changed, but we can also expect some redesigns from the outside and inside and some improvements in engine and high-tech section. Read the next review, and find out something interesting about the newest 2018 Ford Expedition.
2018 Ford Expedition – Design Updates:
The exterior design of the 2018 Ford Expedition will be phenomenal. Everything from the outside is simply perfect and probably all people will adore its exterior design. The front side will receive some minor tweaks. We can expect to see completely redesigned front grille; it will be good looking with some horizontal chrome bars. Also, the headlights of this model will be better and more stylish than before. The headlights design will be changed while the system that powers it will be the same LED technology.
As we mentioned in the intro, the total weight of this model is reduced. The chassis construction is made using the lightweight materials such as aluminum, and because of that, the overall performance and fuel consumption are better than in the current model. (The weight is reduced by 300 pounds!). Furthermore, this model will have a bit different and more muscular front bumper. Here we can see large air intakes and LED fog lights. The next Expedition will ride on 21-inch aluminum wheels. The rear side will probably remain the same as before. Some rumors suggest new taillights, but this info is not confirmed by Ford.
Inside the SUV:
From the inside, the expected model will provide a high dose of luxury and elegance. Also, another very important thing is on the high level – the comfort. All seats in the cabin are covered with the high-quality leather and all seats are very adjustable. The dashboard of this model is refreshed and here we can see 4.2 touchscreen display fitted with updated MyFord Touch infotainment system. The cabin will be able of accommodating up to seven passengers. This model also has a lot of high-tech and standard interior features and some of them are Dual-zone automatic climate control, Cruise control, Rear auxiliary climate control, Ambient Lighting, Large front floor console, Passenger assist handles, HD Radio, and many others as well.
2018 Ford Expedition – Engine and Performance:
The 2018 Ford Expedition will be powered by the same engine as the current model, just a bit upgraded. That means that we can expect 3.5-liter EcoBoost but with better power output. This enhanced engine will be capable of producing up to 365 hp and 420 pound-feet of torque. Also, we can anticipate totally new 6-speed automatic transmission system designed by Ford. The power from this engine will be routed to all wheels. When it comes to fuel consumption, we know for certain that will be improved but at this point, we don’t have exact numbers.
2018 Ford Expedition – Rumors Date, Expected Price, and Rivals:
The new 2018 Ford Expedition will be released in the second half of 2017. When it comes to prices, the base variant of this model will have a starting MSRP of around $48.000. Some of its main rivals are GMC Yukon XL Denali as well as a Chevrolet Tahoe.
