Although Ford Expedition is still in testing phase, we have some information about this new SUV. The all-new, fourth generation of Expedition will be probably introduced next year. We got some spy photos from the latest test drive in Michigan. Even, it’s camouflaged, we can clearly see some changes comparing to last model. It will share the chassis with Ford F-150 pickup. The big changes are noticeable especially on the front end. New model has larger grille and more vertical front fascia. On the rear end, we noticed new single large rear-facing exhaust pipe. When we talk about some technical characteristics, there is no official information so we must rely on rumors and speculations about this new model.
We expect at least two engines to be offered for new Expedition. The standard engine will probably be 3.5 or EcoBoost V6 that is used in F-150. It will probably produce a comparable amount of power in the upcoming Expedition, about 365 horsepower. Also, there will be a V8 engine in offer. That place is reserved for “Coyote”. There are speculations that this 5.0 V8 will be able to tow over 10 000 pounds (over 4500 kg). We expect new Ford Expedition to have better fuel efficiency than the current model. New SUV will probably feature a start/stop technology in order to improve city mileage by automatically shutting down parts of the engine when the vehicle is stopped on traffic light. Also, there will be a new transmission. Ford is developing new 10-speed transmission that will deliver much more power at lower speeds and also better fuel economy, especially on the highway. Big part of construction will be made from superlight materials such as aluminum or boron steel. All in all, Ford will maximize fuel economy and, according to some reliable sources, new Expedition will have highway mileage about 25-30 mpg (between 8 and 9 liters per 100 km).Also, interior will feature some improvements. This eight-passenger SUV will probably get MyTouch touch screen infotainment interface and voice controls as standard.
