Ford introduces the all-new 2018 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.”
Expedition delivers 9,300 pounds of towing capability to the more than half of Expedition customers that value towing. It also features class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, making it easier than ever for customers to tow and haul with confidence.
An all-new easy-to-use Terrain Management System™ lets FX4 customers select from seven special drive modes that help Expedition automatically adapt to different road conditions. This includes normal for around town driving, sport for more spirited trips, tow/haul for improved towing and hauling performance, eco for enhanced fuel economy, grass/gravel/snow for loose terrain, sand for low traction situations and mud/rut for uneven surfaces.
So, whether life has you carting the kids off to practice or hauling the boat north for a weekend, the 2018 Expedition provides the power, connection and capability to take you there. Plus, as an added bonus, Ford provides Farm Bureau members a $500 cash savings on their long list of SUV’s, cars and trucks.
