2018 Ford Expedition FX4 Specifications
Ford will add an off-road package to its new 2018 expedition line when the large SUV redone launches this fall. The 2018 Ford Expedition Fx4 is a 4 x 4 family utility that can travel on roads, unpaved roads, crawl on rocks, and mud through mud, as well as ride comfortably on the road, says Ford.
Ford officials said they created the Fx4 package for 20% of the current expedition owners who use their SUV’s for off-road adventures. The new full-size SUV is also built into a completely new body of aluminum alloy and rugged steel frame which is 300 lbs lighter than the current model. The 2018 Expedition Fx4 is equipped with a rugged 3.5-liter Ford EcoBoost engine that generates 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-pair feet, paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The FX4 package allows the driver to manually select 2WD or 4WD. It features Ford’s patented rear limited slip electronic differential to improve off-road performance under low-traction conditions by variable power output from side-to-side. In addition, FX4 trailer has been improved to 9,300 lbs. All-terrain tyres are part of the package, along with seven different sliding plates that protect the body and other components.
The FX4 Expedition package also includes 18-in. Magnetic-metallic painted aluminum wheels together with chrome running boards and Fx4 badging at the door and front fender. Also included are the rubber floor coverings that can be removed and cleaned. Shields have also been added to protect the turbocharger’s intercoolers from clogging if a driver decides to navigate sand dunes. Plus, there are steel plates to protect the steering gear, motor, transmission, and transfer box as well as a fuel tank protector. The front bumper has been shortened and has a aileron to help when the vehicle climbs over the rocks.
2018 Ford Expedition FX4 Interior
Inside, the cabin is spacious with possible seats for 8. A second-row seat can be inclined and slid to provide easy access to the third row seat without the need to remove a child’s second row safety seat. Ford also features that the third row has adult-sized space with reclining seats.
Ford announced on Friday that the off-road FX4 package for the upcoming 2018 expedition will attempt to appeal to the demographics of the adventurous car. The package will include better shocks, larger rims with new 18-inch rims, a limited slip differential, and a strengthened subbody to prevent ground damage to suspension components and key motors. The FX4 will also feature a Smart 4 x 4 system, seven dynamic driving modes for different situations, and a slightly different badging to differentiate it from the regular expedition.
2018 Ford Expedition FX4 Engine
In addition, the company announced the official power numbers for the expedition, with the XL, the XLT, and the limited production 375 hp at 5,000 rpm and 470 lb-ft at 3,500 rpm. The Top-Spec Expedition Platinum will produce 400 horsepower at the same engine speed and 480 lb-ft in a response-friendly 3,250 rpm. Combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission and a claimed weight loss of 300 pounds on the previous expedition, those power numbers should give the very energetic performance of the 3.5 L twin-turbocharged V-6 in fact. The standard auto-start stop should also improve efficiency, and Ford demands a better segment towing capacity of up to 9,300 lbs.
Ford also announced the power outputs of petrol engines of 2018 F-150. The new base motor, a 3.3 L naturally sucked V-6, will put out 290 hp and 265 lb-ft, the respective increases of 8 and 12 over the former 3.5 L V-6. However, with a peak power of 6,500 rpm and the peak torque of 4,000 rpm, this motor is the most suitable for commuting or handyman work, instead of all-out towing or hauling.
One step up from the F-150 base V-6 is a 2.7 L V-6 turbocharged. This small engine raised some eyebrows when it debuted on the 2015 F-150, but its power numbers are right there with the V-8S of some competitors. For 2018, it puts out the same HP as before (325 HP at 5,000 rpm), but with 400 lb-ft at 2,750 rpm, it out-distorts the truck of 2017 by 25.

The only V-8 on the F-150 enginehouse is a 5.0 L unit that is revised and updated for 2018. Produces 395 hp at 5,750 rpm (up to 10 hp) and 400 lb-ft at 3,850 rpm (up to 13 lb-ft). That’s even more horsepower than the Top-Spec no-Raptor 3.5 L EcoBoost V-6, which makes you do with 375 ponies. Speaking of the 3.5 L V-6, both the F-150 and the Raptor versions of that engine are unchanged for 2018, riding on their heavy upgrades that came for 2017.
Adding performance to most F-150 customers is a 10-speed automatic transmission, standard equipment with each engine that saves 3.3 L V-6. It is a smooth scrolling unit, and will add to the F-150 attraction for most customers. As with the forwarding, the F-150 comes standard with auto stop-start.

All these features match well with the powerful 3.5 L EcoBoost Expedition V-6 which makes 350 horsepower and 470 lb-ft torque; This combination will take you on the last camping adventure. The Fx4 will still get all the available technology that the standard expedition receives, so this package is a must-buy for those looking for the quintessential off-road experience. Both the 2018 expedition and the F-150 arrive at the dealerships this fall, with prices still to be announced.
