The forthcoming 2020 Ford Expedition is one of the best full-size SUVs in the market right now. The Expedition comes with the attractive exterior design and very comfy and roomy interior. Under the hood, the customers can opt between the gasoline and diesel engines. Moreover, a hybrid drivetrain is available as well. The new model will benefit from the latest changes and upgrades, but the changes are far from significant.
The 2020 Ford Expedition will arrive with a lot of aluminum bodywork. Blue Oval carmaker is doing everything to reduce the overall weight of the full-size SUV. The exterior will suffer some minor refinements and the interior will be the even more pleasant place from now on. Three trim levels and a couple of optional packages will be available. The Expedition offers room for seven passengers across the three rows. There is even the Ford Expedition Max variant that is larger and it can accommodate eight persons.
2020 Ford Expedition design and dimensions
Large, bold and mean, the 2020 Ford Expedition is everything. Because of its size, it is easy to spot the Expedition SUV in the parking lot or on the road. This model is 210.0 inches long and the Expedition Max model is even longer, 221.9-inches to be precise. As you may know, the full-size SUV draws some styling cues from the F-150 truck. The front part will now get more chrome trims around the grille and LED headlights. LED system can be found on the taillights as well, and it is standard. The Expedition is made not to only transport people, but also to haul.
For that reason, tow hooks and a receiver hitch are standard. You can find these features below the front and rear bumpers. Thanks to the upper trim levels such as Limited and Platinum, Expedition offers dark aluminum wheels as standard. Those wheels are ranging from 20 to 22-inches and are looking brilliant. Furthermore, a hands-free tailgate is a standard feature on those trims. If you are looking for luxury, Platinum model is offering moonroof as standard.
2020 Ford Expedition interior review
The interior of the forthcoming 2020 Ford Expedition will see some upgrades, just like the exterior. Dashboard design is slightly different and the center console will get slightly fewer buttons. New rotary gearshift knob is standard and the cabin will get additional chrome and wood trims. As we said, the interior can receive up to seven passengers across the three rows of seats. The Sync3 infotainment system will get an update and the infotainment display will remain.
Another TFT display is standard, along with the two-zone climate control, Bluetooth and navigation. Upper trims such as Limited or Platinum are offering more standard features. That includes Wi-Fi hotspot, leather upholstery, power folding seats, and panoramic roof. B&O premium audio system is in the offer and the rear passengers can now enjoy in the new entertainment system.
2020 Ford Expedition powertrain
The next 2020 Ford Expedition is offering three different types of engine. The base drivetrain is still a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that generates 375 horsepower. Interestingly, the diesel engine will soon become available on almost all of the markets. A speculated output is a 3.0-liter Powerstroke unit that will deliver fewer horses, 250 to be exact. However, 420 lb-ft of torque and better fuel economy, sounds just right.
A new 10-speed automatic transmission is standard and Blue Oval carmaker will now deploy a hybrid drivetrain too. Sadly, there is no word about the specs of the hybrid variant. We can expect more or less the same amount of torque and horsepower as the base V6 engine. On the other hand, mileage will be astonishing, perhaps the best in the full-size segment. Have in mind the base model is returning 19 mpg combined. Hybrid drivetrain will surely provide 25 mpg or maybe even more.
2020 Ford Expedition Max features
The 2020 Ford Expedition Max model is a pickup among the SUVs, or it acts like it. Max variant is bigger than the regular full-size model and it offers room for eight occupants. The regular Expedition is 210.0-inches long and the Expedition Max is about 11.0-inches longer.
It is a real American SUV with the heavier use of the high-strength-steel. Also available in three trim levels, Max will use the same 3.5-liter V6. All-wheel-drive setup is available, and this version can tow 9,200 pounds. And while the base model can produce 375 hp, Max Platinum will deliver up to 400 horsepower.
2020 Ford Expedition price and release date
The price of the all-new 2020 Ford Expedition starts at $52,000. The XLT trim will cost around $55,500 and the Limited model $62,500. Range-topping Platinum trim is priced at $72,500. As we wrote, Expedition Max offers the same three trim levels. Each trim level will cost $3,000 over the prices on the base model. The full-size SUV will most likely go on sale later in 2019, around November.
