Ford introduces the all-new Expedition – the smartest, most capable and most adaptable Expedition ever – with technology to keep every passenger connected, more power for drivers, and more towing capability than any other full-size SUV.
An all-new high-strength, aluminum-alloy body and redesigned high-strength steel frame form the foundation for Expedition’s rugged off-road and strong towing capabilities. Thanks to the use of advanced materials, the all-new Expedition saves up to 300 pounds, and the team reinvested that weight savings everywhere it counts to give customers more technology and convenience features than ever before.
With its roomy, flexible interior, the all-new Expedition is the first full-size utility to feature a sliding second-row seat with tip-and-slide functionality, providing easy access to the third row without the need to first remove a child safety seat. Once in the third row, even adults will appreciate more legroom and reclining seats.
Expedition’s available Wi-Fi hotspot supports as many as 10 devices at once – up to 50 feet from the vehicle – while an available dual-headrest rear seat entertainment system provides a next-generation video experience that allows passengers to watch live TV via SlingPlayer™ on either of two video screens. The system represents the first time SlingPlayer – which connects to a user’s home Slingbox™ account – is offered in an automobile.
“With the changes we’ve made to Expedition, people will see a whole new product, an entirely different vehicle,” said Todd Hoevener, Expedition chief engineer. “We’ve created the ultimate vehicle experience for the driver and the ones that matter to him or her most. No more racing to try to get a good seat – every row is fully connected and comfortable, and there’s plenty of room for your gear.”
Powerful and efficient, Expedition’s new 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine and 10-speed automatic transmission produce up to 400 horsepower and 480 foot pounds of torque with best-in-class fuel economy and towing capability.
