The large, truck-based Ford Expedition SUV can transport up
to eight passengers and still tow massive loads nearly as the full-size trucks.
The full-size Expedition can be considered as the Ford F-150 with three-row of
seats with the wagon-like body as two models share the same architecture,
aluminum-intensive body panels, running gear and other features. The mighty
Expedition was the all-new for the 2018 model year and will soon face with the
redesigned Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban.
The next 2020 Ford Expedition will continue to live on the benefits of the recent redesign and Ford could just add new trim or special edition version. Some changes in the equipment organization are also expected and new color and wheel options should appear. Ford hasn’t confirmed the arrival of the new powertrain options for the new model year.
2020 Ford Expedition: Design
The Expedition SUV shares the Ford F-Series thirteen
generation platform formed mostly from the high-strength steel for the enhanced
structural rigidly and performance. The body panels of the model use also
aluminum as the ingredient in order to keep the weight under the check.
The 2020 Ford Expedition will continue with the same
architecture and styling to the new model year and changes could only include a
new version or two with the unique exterior details.
The model will use slightly modified styling elements
compared to the closely-relative, fast-selling F-150. The C-shaped headlights
are the form of the units used on the truck model and the grille is derivative
of the design from the workhorse.
The appearance of the Expedition will also be defined with
the slab-sided profile and straight character line. The model will also get the
base 18-inch wheels which will grow in upper grades to 20- or 22-inch units.
While Ford modified the styling elements of the Expedition,
the interior is more obviously F-Series relative. The dash is the same shape
and design as on the truck model but Ford uses higher-quality finish in the
The model will have the power driver seat and leather
treated steering wheel in the base version but also the new technologies and
optional packages for further upgrading. The base version will be available
with dual-zone climate control, heated and ventilated front seats, memory
setting, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, etc. All versions
will get the models Sync3 infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen and Apple
Car Play and Android Auto support.
The Expedition will boost the comforts and tech-feature to a
higher level in upper grades. There will be parking seniors, heated second row,
B&O sound system, adaptive suspension dampers, navigation, surround view
cameras, interior stitching, leather upholstery, wood and chrome trim pieces,
The safety gear will include modern systems like adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with emergency braking, and lane keep assist.
2020 Ford Expedition: Powertrains
The 2020 Ford Expedition will provide plenty of power and
towing capability thanks to the mighty, twin-turbo engine but will also please
with the good ride and handling considering its size.
A 3.5-liter bi-turbo V-6 will work in the combination with
the 10-speed automatic transmission and either rear- or all-wheel drive. The
engine will make 375 hp and torque of 470 pound-feet. More power will be
available in the Platinum version 400 hp and torque of 480 lb-ft.
The Expedition will provide up to 104.6 cubes of the cargo
space and the towing limit of 9,300 pounds. There will also be the FX off-road
package with low range gearing, skid plates, all-terrain tires and
The twin-turbo powertrain will return 17 mpg city and 24 mpg
highway or 20 mpg combined with the power on the rear wheels. The all-wheel
drive will reduce the score to 17/22 mpg city/highway or 19 mpg combined. The
long-wheelbase version, when used with the rear-wheel drive should match 17 mpg
city and 23 mpg highway while the all-wheel drive will be at 16 mpg city and 21
