Though the SUV has had various updates and upgrades over the years, it has never been entirely redesigned. However, that may not seem to be the case to what has been done on the 2018 Ford Expedition, because it is sporting a new aluminum platform and improved design.

The Price

Presently, the 2017 Expedition starts at a base price of $46,225. According to reports, if it will be dressed up, 2018 Expedition could cost around $70,000.

The Design

The Expedition's body will be made of aluminum which will make it drop around 300 pounds from its curb weight. As for the lorry, it will retain its standard exterior profile, but there will be some minor tweaks to make it more attractive. The front fascia will look more aggressive, there will be a chromed grille, a more sophisticated front bumper, and a new design of headlights.

Furthermore, the Expedition will include a squared-boy, four power ran doors and contemporary technical functions like Sync3 infomercial systems and MyFord Touch infotainment system. Speaking of the MyFord Touch infotainment system, it comes with a Sony sound system with 10 audio speakers and a navigating system linked to an LCD which is placed at the center of the cockpit console.

The Expedition is also expected to have three rows of seats which will make it capable of accommodating around 8 passengers. The cabin will be dominated by aluminum and wood trims to reduce its weight, thus improving performance and gas effectiveness. As for its safety, various features like stability and traction control are expected to be included. The vehicle is expected to sport 3-row head airbags, 4-wheel anti-skid brakes, post-collision mitigation system, and front fog lights

The Engine

The Expedition is reported to likely sport two engines. One is a 2.7 L Ecoboost engine which generates 325 hp and 375 lb-ft of torque. The other is a 3.5 L Ecoboost which is essentially a V-6 engine that produces 325 hp on the 2015 Expedition but will be tweaked to generate 411 hp on the 2018 Expedition.
