Back for 2018, and bigger’n badder than ever before, Ford’s latest Expedition marks an advancement over its immediate predecessor and a great lunge forward, ahead of its nearest class-rivals. With greater horsepower and less weight than any of its previous instantiations, the 2018 Ford Expedition stands out in a crowded, competitive SUV market, while handily rising to the expectations that go along with the Ford-brand badge. We at Team Ford know you’ll be floored at the sheer level of innovation and forward-mindedness obvious in the 2018 Expedition, inside and out.
Your lean, mean, driving machine
Nearly everything about the new Ford Expedition is new, even down to the drivetrain. Powered by a 3.5L EcoBoost that harnesses a burly 375 HP, and paired with the new 10-speed automatic transmission, the new Expedition delivers drivers more power and better fuel efficiency. Body panels for the 2018 Expedition are now military-grade aluminum (rather than the formerly used high-grade steel) and its interior shares many design cues from the F-Series pickups.
The 2018 Ford Expedition rides on a re-imagined version of the F-150’s formidable, fully boxed steel frame, while employing a four-wheel independent suspension system for a smooth ride. Both the standard-length edition Expedition and expanded, long-wheelbase Expedition MAX versions are back for the new year as well, though having dropped an impressive 300 lbs over the outgoing model. So go ahead and comment on it’s weight. It’ll thank you for noticing.
At Team Ford, we’re always up for some friendly competition, and we love testing our own mettle against that of our noble competition. When it comes to the 2018 Ford Expedition, there are few who present a truly viable adversary. Let’s see if we’ve found one in the 2018 Tahoe from Chevrolet.
