To find out, Charles Gabus Ford has put together this review of the 2018 Ford Expedition, discussing topics important to drivers like you. Read on to learn more.
Ford Expedition Performance
It’s hard to ignore the V6 power found in the Expedition. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine comes standard, a perfect fit for this full-size vehicle. The twin-turbocharged V6 is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, producing 375-horsepower in the base set-up. On higher trims, the engine can produce up to 400-horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, allowing drivers to experience sheer power when behind the wheel.
When properly equipped, the Expedition can tow up to 9,300 pounds, with a high-strength steel frame and aluminum-alloy body. Bring a motorcycle, boat, or other item along with you for the ride, and use SelectShift® capability to upshift or downshift without a clutch.
Ford Expedition Interior Amenities
In the base edition of the Expedition, there’s seating for up to eight people, with a spacious set-up, making things comfortable for driver and passengers. If you upgrade to the second-row bucket seats, the seating capacity will be seven. Available leather-trimmed heated and ventilated front bucket seats can make any drive comfortable for those seated up front.
When it comes to cargo space and storing important items, the 2018 Ford Expedition is a great option. There’s a little over 20 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the rear seats, enough for a number of suitcases and large luggage. If you need to haul furniture or longer items, choose the Expedition Max, which provides a maximum capacity of over 120 cu. ft. This abundant space is thanks to a longer wheelbase.
The Expedition is equipped with Ford’s SYNC® technology, which comes with a 4.2-inch screen, Bluetooth® technology, and voice-recognition capability. With the available SYNC® Connect set-up, an in-car Wi-Fi Hotspot lets you connect to your favorite devices while on the go.
When upgrading to the SYNC® 3 system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ technology, you’ll find all the SYNC® features along with a touchscreen with swipe capability. With Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, talk to Siri® to interact with your iPhone®, or to Google® to interact with your Android™ phone. Access playlists, read text messages, and navigate using your favorite map applications.
