A well-placed source who often dines with Ford authorities reached out to us last week claiming that the 2019 Ford Expedition is underway. According to our insider, the inbound Expedition is set to boast an all-new aluminum frame with better fuel economy. It will arrive at dealerships in next year’s autumn, and it will include a whole new array of features.
Seemingly, the current model has remained unchanged for almost a decade now. We, therefore, expect the incoming Ford Expedition to look entirely modern when it finally hits the market as the 2019 model. It will bring forth dozens of features that were missing in the previous releases. Above all, this edition will likely introduce a few new trims so that it can take on various rivals from General Motors.
2019 Ford Expedition – Exterior Design and Interior Cosmetics
The 2019 Ford Expedition shares most of its chassis and running gear with the F-150 truck. It is set to come with a fully boxed-in frame alongside an independent suspension that can handle its body weight better than the previous versions. Unlike the ancient model, the new Expedition uses an all-aluminum body frame to ensure that it drops the weight by about 300 pounds.
The revived Ford Expedition marks the most significant and historical departure from the previous model. We can confidently say that the new Expedition and the old one share nothing in common, especially regarding overall looks. Ford has fine-tuned the front fascia to look stylish and highly aggressive.
At the front, we can see some C-shaped daytime running lights, a honeycomb grille, and low air dam. These features create a dramatic and bulky-looking hood. The rear section is made to appear chunky so that it can accentuate the SUV’s muscular look.
This time, the short-wheelbase model is about four inches longer than its precursor while the long-wheelbase variant is about one inch longer than the previous EL model. You will find more room inside the cabin of the next-gen Expedition than ever before, and Ford will adjust most of the cabin to look unique.
The short and long-wheelbase variants come with eight seats as standard. The redesigned Ford Expedition borrows its dashboard from the F-150, but the manufacturer has modified the center stack to look different. The cabin houses an all-new electronic parking brake, better front seats, and a rotary gear shifter.
The quality of materials has significantly advanced relative to the older generations. Additionally, Ford has opted to provide more trunk space than ever before. The passengers are now able to enjoy and appreciate more room in every row.
2019 Ford Expedition – Engine and Maximum Torque
The 2019 Ford Expedition gets its juice from a turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. This power-house produces about 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of maximum torque. Ford mates this engine with a standard six-speed automatic gearbox, and the rear-wheel-drive becomes standard.
An optional all-wheel-drive will be there also. The 2019 Ford Expedition accelerates from zero to 62 mph in just under 6.2 seconds. Its EPA fuel economy ratings stand at 15 mpg city drive and 20 mpg highway.
2019 Ford Expedition – Expected Arrival and Price
The 2019 Ford Expedition enthusiasts will have to wait until next year’s autumn when this truck goes on sale. The lowest trim will probably start at $47,000 while more equipped variants could sell for $70,000.
