Just when we thought that The Ford has given up on classic SUV models, since there hasn’t been any significant changes in design for a couple of years, here comes the brand new 2019 Ford Expedition to blow our minds. It seems like the new Expedition is going to live up to every expectation and dazzle us with new V6 for more comfort and quiet and enhancing improvements all around.
Although the Expedition is based on the Ford F-150, since the 2015 F-150 has gone through some radical changes – like aluminium changes, there is no such connection between the two models like it used to be before all the alterations. It seems like the Ford team tried to distinguish style of these two models, and as it seems they succeeded by making new Expedition rougher yet softer with modernized look. It has a thick new chrome strip across the back, as well as chrome-tipped exhaust pipes and wheel sizes up to 22 inches.
When it comes to design and functionality, there have been a couple of improvements that we thought might be interesting. First of all, the MyFord Touch system has been added with an 8 inches screen and two smaller screens integrated in the steering wheel. There is also a clean new center-stack design which is common among the new Ford models. Even though, there is still the instrument-panel design, it has a pretty solid and a lot more convincing look than before.
2019 Ford Expedition Engine
Rumor has it that the time came for the Ford to forget about V8, and install brand new EcoBoost V6 into the new Ford Expedition. However, Ford hasn’t officially released specifications for this model, but we are hoping that these rumors are correct since this is the configuration already installed in the new Explorer. This should bring increase of around 2 mpg while preserving the present pulling rankings up to 9 200 pounds. We believe that the same engine from F-150 will be put in the Expedition, which will provide 36 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. This would make it faster and less bulky to drive.
2019 Ford Expedition Release date and Price
Even though the release date of the 2019 Ford Expedition is still unknown, it should be announced by the end of this year. The pricing for this model is still a mystery for us, but be prepared for it to be slightly higher than for the previous models – around $50,000, due to the new EcoBoost technology.
