Ford has announced the all-new Ford Expedition amping up the ante in the full-size SUV segment by bringing a vehicle that is not only the smartest in its segment, but also said to be the most capable and adaptable ever.
At the core of the Expedition legacy is Ford’s commitment to offer a safe, comfortable and spacious ride and while that hasn’t changed, the automaker is promising a whole new level of comfort and driving experience that no other Expedition has ever provided.
Convenience and connectivity have been built right into the design of the new Ford Expedition and combine them with the proven strengths of the full-size SUV, families are all-set to receive one of the most safe and comfortable rides ever. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine mated with a class-exclusive new 10-speed automatic transmission delivers the power that Ford Expedition drivers are used to. Add to that the new available electronic limited-slip differential on models with Intelligent 4WD, and you have improved off-road capability in some of the toughest terrains.
Flexibility and spaciousness are two other important must-have features when it comes to family cars and Ford claims that its all-new Expedition has it all. The Expedition is the first full-size utility to feature a sliding second-row seat with tip-and-slide functionality, providing easy access to the third row without the need to first remove a child safety seat. Once in the third row, even adults will appreciate more legroom and reclining seats. Expedition’s second- and third-row seats can be quickly folded flat with the push of a button to open up a cargo area wide enough to handle 4×8-foot sheets of plywood and other gear, depending on cargo weight and load distribution, even with the liftgate closed.
Some of the connectivity features including Wireless charging; Wi-Fi hotspot; SYNC 3, with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability; 12-speaker B&O PLAY premium audio system; Advanced cargo manager; and Panoramic Vista Roof spanning two rows take the all-new Expedition to a whole new level much ahead of its competitors.
More than 40 features and driver-assist technologies new to Expedition help make the journey as enjoyable as the destination. These include class-exclusive enhanced active park assist to easily pull in and out of parking spots, as well as available 360-degree camera technology to help customers see more around their Expedition for easier parking. On the road, Expedition’s lane-keeping aid is designed to reduce unintentional drifting of the vehicle outside its intended lane, while adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go allows drivers to set a cruising speed, using radar and camera technology to monitor traffic to maintain a set distance between vehicles.
