In spite of its rather old and unappealing looks, Ford Expedition is still very much in production and Ford has even gone to the trouble of making not one, but three custom versions for the 2014 SEMA show. These Expeditions are built by three big names in the tuning business: Tjin Edition, DUB Magazine and Vaccar.
The custom Ford Expedition by Tjin Edition is distinguished thanks to its metal fender flares, custom dark gray paint job and a whole new liftgate. It also gets Air Lift struts and an Accuair air management system, as well as a big brake system from Baer Brakes, 24-inch custom Rotiform wheels and Falken tires. But the biggest highlight must be the tuned V6 EcoBoost engine, upgraded to 405 horsepower.
The highlights of Ford Expedition by DUB Magazine include custom mesh accents, front grille and lighting with 26-inch DS644 concave wheels from Dropstars Wheels, and Pirelli tires. Custom DUB Edition badging, tinted windows and an integrated radar detection system are featured as well. Mechanical changes include McGaughy’s Suspension Lift Kits and Borla exhaust system. There is also a kicking sound system and upgraded seats and upholstery, and custom adjustable LED lighting.
The third and final custom Expedition is the one by Vaccar and it’s designed to emphasize the car’s versatility and off-road prowess. The main highlights include custom Vaccar two-tone matte mountain gray, with paint and accents from BASF, Vaccar Grill Guardian brush guard bull bar, swivel hooks by Monster Hooks, spring steps and a hitch stop from Go Rhino!, and MegaWarrior cargo basket from Yakima Products, plus 20-inch wheels.
