Ford is a company known for going big. And that has paid off well for them. In fact, the F-150 – their beefy pickup – is America’s most popular truck by a long shot. And while “bigness” in and of itself doesn’t make a vehicle worth buying, it doesn’t appear to hurt, either. Or at least that’s true in this brand’s case. Now they’ve announced another very big release: their 2018 Expedition.
With a front-end that looks suspiciously like their F-150, this monolithic SUV is certainly imposing, but it has a long list of features to back it up. For starters, despite its size, the 2018 is actually 300 pounds lighter than previous models. That’s thanks in part to the new all-aluminum body sitting upon its steel frame. But the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, 10-speed transmission, and optional “Intelligent 4WD” ensure that it is no less capable. Ford has also gone a bit more high tech with this latest offering, including in it a wireless charging pad in the center console, a killer Bang & Olufsen speaker system, dual rear seat entertainment systems, and the ability to be turned into a 10-device Wi-Fi hotspot with a range of up to 50 feet. Hopefully, we’ll hear more – like the price and release date – of this upcoming model soon. [Purchase]
