For a long time most of it has not changed for a decade, the all-new version of Ford Expedition was finally revealed a few months ago. It looks like the new model will hit the market as MY 2018. Although it may be early enough to say much about future updates, it looks like there are already plans for 2019 Ford Expedition. So far the details are still scarce but it looks like this new model will include some missing features. In addition, 2019 Ford Expedition revision might also see the introduction of several new trim levels to enable it to compete with GM’s competitors.
As with the new version, 2019 Ford Expedition model will still be based on the same chassis as Ford F-150 truck. This means that he will use a full box frame along with fully independent suspension settings. On top of that, unlike its predecessor, this car will use all aluminum bodies which will ensure the car will remain as light as possible.
2019 Ford Expedition Redesign
The regular model of 2019 Ford Expedition will look more or less the same as the 2018 car. Hope they will receive the new LED headlamps and tail lights, but it should. The new slim level, on the other hand, might change a little more than that.
For starters, there seems to be an opportunity for Ford to release a new luxury edition from an expedition called Vignale. So far unconfirmed and it seems that it is not even available on the US market.
This model will include new grille designs, chrome inserts and larger wheels. It is also expected to come up with a unique paint scheme and perhaps an air-ride system that will allow SUVs to get lower at highway speeds to save fuel.
Most rumors say this model might only be available in certain markets such as China or the Middle East. However, Ford can also surprise us and release it on the US market as well.
2019 Ford Expedition Interior Design
Not surprisingly, 2019 Ford Expedition will not be much different from the current model which is basically identical to Ford F-150 truck. SUVs will continue to use dashboards that look vertical as before and must use features that are more or less the same. However, some also suggest some improvements may be in store for it. For starters, Ford Expedition might receive a new infotainment system with better connectivity and a larger screen.
On top of that, there is a small chance for the car to accept a four-seat version that will utilize a massive wheelbase to provide a very impressive experience in the back seat.
2019 Ford Expedition Engine and Spec
Currently there is a 3.5 liter V6 under the hood of the car. Ford Expedition 2019 will feature the same 3.5-liter twin-turbo engine as before. With 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, this must be one of the most impressive V6 engines ever installed in an SUV. The base model will get the same engine but this will only offer 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.
Both will be mated with the same 10 automatic speed. And both will be available with rear or rear wheel drive. Even though it’s not official. It seems that the new Ford Expedition can receive the 3rd engine option in the form of Ford new 3.0 liter diesel.
This is a new V6 turbocharged engine that is expected to provide more than 250 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. This should be enough to give it a very high tow-rank while also boasting a much better fuel efficiency than the gas-powered V6.
2019 Ford Expedition Plug-in Hybrid
It is clear that many car makers, including Ford, are turning to several types of electrification for their vehicles. We can hear that Ford F-150 Hybrid is on its way to 2020, but it seems that 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid will be the one that will come even before that.
For some people, this may be far more complete information. But we think that is very possible because Ford F-150 and Ford Expedition share many parts and Ford Expedition is based on Ford F-150 models. This step is needed because we see more and more buyers looking for improvements in fuel economy and emissions segments and we know how popular SUVs are.
At present we still don’t have concrete details about the powertrain that will be used for 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid. But we can hear previous reports that it won’t offer plug-in settings. This is not the first time we are talking about hybrid SUVs. Previously we could see Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon with similar fuel-saving powertrains.
2019 Ford Expedition Release Date, Price
The release date for new vehicles is still unknown but from initial rumors, it looks like it might hit the market closer to the end of 2019. The price is more than likely it won’t change that much with the range of $ 44,000.
