The Ford Expedition was unveiled in 1996 with two V8 engine options (4.6-liter and 5.4-liter versions) and room for up to nine passengers, depending on the model. From the start, the Expedition offered consumers the performance and versatility needed for a wide range of jobs. In 2002, the Ford Expedition entered its second generation with a refreshed exterior and interior, independent rear suspension, refinements to both engine options and the option for four-wheel electronic traction control.
The third-generation Ford Expedition was introduced in 2007, offering improved performance along with technology upgrades. The previous Expedition’s engine options and four-speed automatic transmission were replaced with a 5.4-liter Triton V8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. In 2015, the Expedition underwent a refresh that replaced the V8 with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6, improving the Expedition’s ride. Along with a bump in performance, the front end was redesigned, the interior received an upscale treatment and Ford’s MyKey® technology was included.
Now in its fourth generation, the Ford Expedition is still an undeniable choice in the large SUV segment. With Terrain Management for excellent handling in every condition, an excellent 10-speed automatic transmission, USB ports, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, smart safety features and more, the Ford Expedition is a viable option for anyone who wants the most in a large SUV.
2007 is the first year in the Expedition’s third generation. This year features significant performance upgrades from the previous generation, namely the 5.4-liter Triton V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission that features a manual shift mode. In addition, new trims are available starting in 2007, including the high-end Eddie Bauer and Limited trims, as well as the larger EL trim that offers more storage and space.
Well into its long-running third generation, the 2015 Ford Expedition receives a major performance upgrade, replacing the 5.4-liter V8 for a more efficient 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine that can produce well over 350 horsepower.
Along with a new engine, electronic power steering is standard, making handling even better. The 2015 Ford Expedition is an attractive refresh that comes in five trims. In addition, this year features some appealing technology updates like an available eight-inch touchscreen and push-button start.
2018 marks the start of the Ford Expedition’s fourth generation. The 2018 Expedition is loaded with fantastic features from the standard 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, 10-speed automatic transmission, 4.2-inch touchscreen display and Bluetooth®, to available amenities that include leather upholstery, wireless phone charging, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, a premium sound system and more. Cutting edge and convenient, the 2018 Ford Expedition is a stellar vehicle.
