Are you in the market for a more-than-capable SUV that offers versatility and performance in one incredible package? Then say hello to the Ford Expedition, one of the best large SUVs on the market and the perfect vehicle for any job. With loads of power, space and technology, the Expedition has remained a contender ever since it hit the market in 1996. Check out how the Ford Expedition has evolved over the last few years and find out which one is right for you.
The Ford Expedition was introduced in 1996. Boasting two V8 engine options (4.6-liter and 5.4-liter versions) and room for up to nine passengers depending on the model, the Expedition offered buyers plenty of both power and practicality. The Expedition entered its second generation in 2002 and received a refreshed exterior and interior, independent rear suspension, refinements to both engine options and optional four-wheel electronic traction control.
In 2007, the third-generation Expedition was introduced, bringing better performance and more tech updates. A 5.4-liter Triton V8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission replaced the previous generations’ engine options and four-speed automatic transmission, and in 2015, the V8 was replaced with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6, improving the Expedition’s ride. In addition, the front end was redesigned, the interior received an upscale treatment and Ford’s MyKey® technology was included.
Now in its fourth generation, the Ford Expedition continues to position itself as an undeniable choice in the large SUV segment. With Terrain Management for excellent handling in every condition, a 10-speed automatic transmission, USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, smart safety features and more, the Ford Expedition continues to build on its legacy.
2007 marks the start of the Expedition’s third generation, one that runs all the way to 2017. The 2007 Ford Expedition features significant performance upgrades including the 5.4-liter Triton V8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission that features a manual shift mode. In addition to its redesign, new trims are also available, including the luxurious Eddie Bauer and Limited trims, as well as the larger EL trim that offers more storage and space.
During its third generation, the Expedition receives a power upgrade, leaving behind the 5.4-liter V8 for a more efficient 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine that can produce well over 350 hp. In addition, electronic power steering is added, making handling even better.
While not a new model, the 2015 Ford Expedition is an attractive refresh that comes in five trims and boasts great safety ratings. In addition, this year features some tech offerings like an available eight-inch touchscreen and push-button start.
The fourth generation Ford Expedition starts in 2018 and is loaded with fantastic features, both inside and out. From the standard 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, 10-speed automatic transmission, 4.2-inch touchscreen display and Bluetooth®, to available leather upholstery, wireless phone charging, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, a premium sound system and more. Capable and connected, the 2018 Ford Expedition is an exceptional large SUV.
For 2019, the Ford Expedition continues to build on its legacy. With second-row USB charging ports, Ford SYNC®, SecuriCode™ Keyless Entry Keypad, MyKey® and a nine-speaker sound system, the 2019 Ford Expedition is as modern as it is rugged. When you leave the paved path, the fully boxed frame, 4WD and Terrain Management System™ will keep you in control. Plus, available safety features like BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert, Lane-Keeping System, adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning and Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ mean you’re safe and secure, no matter where you go or what you do.
