Eye-catching styling, connected technology features, and commanding performance help establish the Ford Expedition as the leader of the full-size SUV segment.

What the Critics Say

"Sharing virtually nothing with its predecessor, the new Expedition advances the state of the art in full-size SUVs in the same way its cousin, the Ford F-150, did for pickup trucks: extensive use of aluminum. The benefits are tangible. The new Expedition offers excellent towing and hauling capabilities with its 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 engine, yet manages to return fuel economy more commonly associated with smaller, car-based midsize SUVs." -- Kelley Blue Book

"The Expedition's cabin is classy and roomy, and especially well-trimmed and attractive at the Limited and Platinum levels. New updates (dials, switches, vents) focus its modern feel. Ambient lighting, leather surfaces and seating, and a sharp tech interface give it an edge over its rivals." -- Edmunds

2018 Ford Expedition Towing Capability

Powerful Performance

One of the most critical areas of the all-new Expedition that Ford engineers worked tirelessly to perfect is performance. Especially important in a full-size SUV, the Expedition has all of the capability to conquer even the largest obstacles thanks to a standard 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 with Auto Start-Stop Technology. Offering up to 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, the Expedition offers a best-in-class** towing capacity of 9,300 lbs. Searching for maximum off-road performance? The available FX4 Off-Road Package includes an easy-to-use 4WD with TerrainManagement System with 7 drive modes, protective underbody skid plates, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, along with off-road-tuned front and rear shocks. By selectively applying individual brakes and modifying engine power, AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) enhances vehicle stability.

Spacious Interior

Across all three rows of the Ford Expedition you'll find an array of comfort and technology features to improve every drive. With more hip room in the first and second rows than the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, the Expedition also shines for its best-in-class** second and third-row legroom. An advanced Cargo Management System provides numerous solutions for storing your cargo securely and easily. For unparalleled luxury, the Expedition Platinum delivers heated and ventilated multicontour front seats with Active Motion®, real wood accents, and power-deployable running boards with polished stainless accents. Four 12V powerpoints, 6 USB ports, and one 110V outlet give the whole crew several options for keeping their devices charged-up.
