The Ford Expedition features a new aggressive front end creates a bold presence that’s perfectly matched to the large and capable Ford SUV. The bold grille and lower front fascia come in a finish unique to each model, including the new Platinum model. The available jewel-like projector headlamps and standard LED fog lamps provide advanced performance in an elegant, contemporary style. Inside the spacious, refreshed eight-passenger interior, you’ll find style, comfort and a long list of new technologies. With the touch of a button you can control the available PowerFold third-row seats to fold down completely flat into the floor or with a 60/40 split. You can now maintain complete connectivity while on the road with available voice-activated SYNC with MyFord Touch. With SYNC, it’s easy to make a call, listen to a text message, explore new music, and find just about anything with simple voice commands.
The Expedition is powered by an advanced 365hp 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine. You’ll experience the benefits of this engine every time you get behind the wheel as the EcoBoost engine delivers added power without sacrificing fuel efficiency. The available hill start assist/descent control helps to keep you in control. The independent multilink rear suspension is available with a rear mechanical load-leveling feature, which automatically levels the chassis when carrying a heavy load. The standard rear view camera is very helpful and displays real-time visuals on the 4.2 inch center screen. Also available is the Blind Spot Information System which detects vehicles entering your blind spot zones and alerts you with an indicator light in the corresponding outside rearview mirror. SYNC 3 features a bigger screen with a new interface and new features.

Ford also added a lot of safety and convenience technology to the Expedition, including Sync 3 and Sync Connect with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, wireless device charging in the center console, and an available Wi-Fi hotspot with a 50-foot range. Six USB ports (two per row), four 12-volt power sources, and a 110-volt AC outlet are standard, while a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system and a second-row headrest-mounted entertainment system is optional.
Ford claims the 2018 Expedition has 40 new-to-the-model features and optional driver-assist technologies. Maneuvering is made easier with a 360-degree camera, parking sensors, and trailer backup assist. It also will offer lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision warning with automatic braking, and blind-spot monitoring.
2018 Ford Expedition EL Platinum Engine
The Expedition retains Ford’s EcoBoost-branded turbocharging and direct fuel-injection technologies, but the old twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 has been replaced with an updated, second-gen version found in the 2017 F-150, equipped with both port and direct fuel injection. In the F-series it makes 375 horsepower at 5000 rpm and 470 lb-ft of torque at 3500 rpm, but no output has been confirmed for the Expedition yet. Given that Ford says the engine was tuned differently here, the peak ratings may change.

In place of the outgoing truck’s six-speed automatic transmission, the redesigned version uses the new 10-speed automatic also found in the F-150 and co-developed by Ford and General Motors. Ford ditched the traditional shift lever for a rotary gear selector. Just below it is a drive-mode switch that offers Normal, Sport, Tow/Haul, Eco, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Sand, and Mud/Rut settings. An available electronic limited-slip differential also is new.

Both the 2018 Expedition and the extended-wheelbase Expedition L will be available in three trim levels—XLT, Limited, and Platinum (there’s also an XL for fleets). The new model goes on sale this fall; pricing should be announced by the end of summer, but don’t look for the new truck to move too far away from the current range, which spans from roughly $48,000 to $72,000.
