Even though the small crossover market is where all the action is right now, full-size SUVs still have their appeal, which is why companies like Ford are still willing to invest in reinventing them. This is the new 2018 Ford Expedition, the new version of the big ol’ bruiser we all know and love, although the new model has gone a bit trim.
Make no mistake, the 2018 Ford Expedition is still a sizable thing though. It is vast enough that you can access the third row seats as easy as climbing in the second row thanks to a large opening. And even though the car is 300 pounds lighter than its predecessor it is one of the safest things on the roads by virtue of its size and all-new high-strength, aluminum-alloy body and redesigned high-strength steel frame. But in spite of all of this Ford engineers have made sure the massive SUV remains convenient by employing latest technologies such as active park assist with 360 degree camera.
Speaking of features, 2018 Ford Expedition is packed inside the cabin with the latest connectivity and convenience equipment. After all, there is plenty of space in there. You get Wireless charging, Wi-Fi hotspot, rear seat entertainment system, SYNC 3 and SYNC connect, 12-volt power points, six USB chargers and a 110-volt power, 12-speaker B&O PLAY premium audio system, Advanced cargo manager with an adjustable shelf behind the third row, and Panoramic Vista Roof. As for power, it comes from Ford’s celebrated 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine with standard Auto Start-Stop plus a class-exclusive new 10-speed automatic transmission.
“When Expedition was introduced 20 years ago, it set the standard for active families who simply needed a big and strong SUV to take them places,” said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. “Today’s families want even more smart technology to help them cover more ground safely, more efficiently and more comfortably – all while staying connected to friends and family.”
