Since its creation, the main focus point around the Ford Expedition has always been size. These days, though, it has progressed, and now there’s a lot more than size on the table. Here’s a look at what the 2018 Ford Expedition has to offer.
The Expedition now has a super-smooth and impressive SelectShift 10-speed automatic transmission. Do keep in mind this is also one of the few SUVs out there that’s truck-based and has a body-on-frame construction. That translates to an SUV that really can get down to business.
37.3 Inches of Third-row Headroom
Unlike a lot of 3-row SUVs out there, the Expedition’s third row actually has plenty of space for adults. Passengers over 6 feet tall will have no problem, as headroom checks in at 37.3 inches. The third-row seats also power-recline for added comfort.
108 Cubic Feet of Cargo Space
There’s no shortage of size in the Expedition, meaning it holds true to what it has always stood for. With both rows folded flat, there’s an abundant 108.3 cu ft. of cargo space. Need something bigger? The Expedition Max trim level is even bigger. All in all, in either form, this SUV is certainly full-size.
The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 produces a powerful 375 horses. If you opt for the top Platinum trim level, it receives 25 more horses, for a total of 400. Both engines are very capable and also offer a very credible towing capacity.
17 Miles Per Gallon in the City
If your drive involves a lot of zipping around town, do keep in mind the Expedition only returns around 17 mpg city. These mpg numbers aren’t as good as some of the competition. Also, the Expedition will require a bit more focus when parking and zipping around, as it may be a bit too large for some to manage day in and day out.
The Expedition has certainly improved over the years. It now offers a lot more than just sheer size. Check out the 2018 Ford Expedition and see if the 3-row SUV has just what you need.
