The current generation of Ford’s flagship SUV has been around for a couple of years, so it’s no wonder that some reports are suggesting a mid-cycle update for the next year, for the 2021 Ford Expedition. This seems logical, considering that no one expects from the current generation to be in production for too long.
Simply, the next-generation F-150 is on its way and may presume that the Expedition will start to benefit from new design solutions soon after. Until then, the upcoming update will ensure up-to-date status for a couple of more years. We expect styling changes, while the rest of the design characteristics and features is expected to remain largely the same.
- Powerful and efficient engines
- Spacious and comfortable cabin
- Huge cargo area
- Great towing capacity
- Not the nicest cabin in the class
- More expensive than rivals
When it comes to the exterior design, the 2021 Ford Expedition is about to get a facelift. The biggest changes of this refresh will be those in terms of styling. Naturally, the focus will be on the front end, where we expect to see revision on parts like headlights, grille, bumper etc.
Still, don’t expect too radical changes, as the next generation is around the corner. In terms of mechanics, things will definitely remain the same. The 2021 Ford Expedition will carry on with its all-aluminum body, which has a nice impact on efficiency and overall performance.
The interior probably won’t feature any bigger change before the redesign. Some experts criticize the model’s too truckish dashboard design, but the fact is that this cabin looks pretty nice in higher trims. After all, that’s not the main reason why people choose this full-size SUV. It is all about the model’s size and its impressive amount of interior space.
This SUV offers three very spacious rows and a huge cargo area. Things are even better if you pick the Max versions, which features a stretched wheelbase to impressive 131.6 inches. Along with the GMC Yukon XL, this is the most spacious SUV on the market.
Things under the good are about to remain the same. We are about to see the same 3.5-liter V6, which in its base variant delivers 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
In higher trim, you get an upgraded version of the engine, with 400 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. In both cases, the fuel economy is pretty good for the class, as you can count on about 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
2021 Ford Expedition Release Date and Price
The 2021 Ford Expedition may come with notable changes, which usually means a little bit earlier arrival than usually. On the other side, the price should remain the same, which means slightly over $52,000 for the base model.
