The prototype which seems to be in the late phase of testing has been caught covered in the camouflage that hides a lot but additionally shows critical changes. The model is expected to make a debut at the next Detroit Auto Show while will enter to generation in the upcoming summer. Let us see what that full-size SUV brings.
The new and many huge Ford’s SUV will again provide significant towing and hauling abilities and will also count on the tested strategy. It’ll continue on the truck-based underpinning and will also use truck’s running gear including powertrains. Its source is, of course, the best-selling F-150 and the next Expedition will take the best from the best.
2018 FORD EXPEDITION: PLATFORM, DESIGN
The new 2018 Ford Expedition will continue to be a true truck-based full-size SUV with all truck’s capabilities. It’ll change to the new T3 underpinning that has been tested and proven on Ford’s light-duty truck. Which means fully-boxed, high-tensile metal chassis and new suspension configuration. However, the Expedition will also get aluminum body construction as the F-150 which brings significant fat save.
In the same fashion, the exterior style will also borrow the inspiration from the F-Series design. It’ll get a more aerodynamic design with more raked window and slimmer lines. The front ligament will feature similar grille and headlights as the F-150 but it will be the smaller interpretation of them.
The profile area will exhibit powerful gear range and there may also be huge rear windows. The raked rear glass and new taillights will establish model’s rear side.
INTERIOR, FEATURES, SAFETY:
Interior will provide enormous individual and cargo place but the design remains a mystery at this moment. However, we’re able to guess that cottage will also get Ford trucks’treatment. In like that, Ford will keep generation charge in balance and will also speed the design process.

There will also be the latest protection methods like blind-spot, monitoring, surround view camera, versatile sail get a grip on, automated emergency braking, street keep assist, street departure caution, etc.

Below the hood of the F-150, this engine produces 375 hp and torque of 470 lb-ft but we do not know its production reviews for the new Expedition.
The 3.5-liter EcoBoost will likely sit below the hood of higher-spec versions or will undoubtedly be available as an option. On the other give, we expect you’ll see a 2.7-liter EcoBoost version as the base engine. It produces 325 hp and torque of 375 lb-ft in Ford’s vehicle and comes with a six-speed automated gearbox. A 6-six speed transmission might also be around in the new SUV but a new 10-speed automated may also be at disposal.
