What if you took America’s best-selling pickup truck and turned it into an SUV? Then you would get the all-new 2018 Ford Expedition. This updated member of the Ford lineup has room for eight passengers and plenty of cargo. But don’t let its large size fool you. It has taken its design cues from the Ford F-150 and features a weight-saving aluminum body. So even though its wheelbase is three inches longer, and its cabin is filled with more gear, the new 2018 Ford Expedition is still 300 pounds lighter than its predecessors.
A lighter weight means that this new SUV has easier handling and better fuel economy. This second-generation Ford Expedition will still use the 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 EcoBoost engine from the previous model. However, tweaks to engineering plus Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission should make the new Ford Expedition peppy and responsive. The available four-wheel drive will also ensure a handling that can adapt to various driving conditions. The new 2018 Ford Expedition will have a higher towing capacity, though exact numbers have yet to be released.
On the inside, the 2018 Ford Expedition will feature a luxurious and roomy cabin. Third-row seating will become more accessible with flexible second-row seating, plenty of smart storage space tucked away, and a panoramic sunroof which makes the whole cabin feel even more open.
This SUV is connected, too. Wireless charging, USB ports, and 12-volt power outlets are all available throughout the vehicle. An available Wi-Fi hotspot plus smartphone connectivity will keep passengers entertained and in the loop.
It’s clear that the new 2018 Ford Expedition is chock-full of desirable upgrades no matter how you look at it. To learn more about the new technology, the updated design, the advanced safety features, or more about the 2018 Ford Expedition, stop by Two Rivers Ford.
