The 2019 Ford Expedition definitely won’t change too much, since this will be its second year of production. The famous SUV just recently came completely new.
After two decades of production, we have seen four generations of it. The new model comes with plenty of novelties. There are a completely new styling, new engine and a bunch of new features. However, the most important is definitely a new platform, which is the same T3 that company introduced with the latest F-150. With plenty of benefits that this architecture provides, the new model is one of the most capable SUVs that you can find around.
It will definitely be one of the key players on the market, although we must admit that there aren’t many vehicles of this type around nowadays. For the next year, 2019 Expedition will probably come without bigger changes, although it could come with additional powertrain option.
2019 Ford Expedition design
As we already mentioned, the 2019 Ford Expedition will continue with the pretty much same characteristics as a completely new 2018 year model. The fourth generation of legendary SUV comes with plenty of new things. One of the most important is a new architecture, borrowed from the new F-150. The new SUV shares most of its characteristics with an iconic truck and, fortunately, continues in a traditional body-on-frame manner. Just like the latest version of F-150, this one also comes with a massive use of lightweight materials. The complete body is made of aluminum and the new model is now much lighter. Together with a new more efficient engine, this makes 2019 Ford Expedition extremely capable, both if you need it for some quick and comfort ride, or heavy duty off-road actions.
2019 Ford Expedition features
The 2019 Ford Expedition will continue with the pretty much same characteristics as the current, completely new 2018 year model. The first that you will notice about the new model is a completely new styling. The new SUV completely follows new design language of the brand and has much in common with the F-150, especially at the front. The interior design is also quite similar. You will see quite the same cabin layout. Of course, there is much more room. This SUV has a capacity of eight passengers. Even the third row of seats comes with plenty of space.
In terms of equipment, there are three trim levels in the offer, and each of them is quite customizable with various options. Even the base XLT model comes with standard features like rear parking sensors, push-button ignition, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, heated side mirrors, air-conditioning, six-way power driver seat etc.
2019 Ford Expedition engine
The 2019 Ford Expedition will continue with the same, highly capable V6 unit. It is an engine with the displacement of 3.5-liter and max power of 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. It comes in a pair with a new 10-speed automatic transmission, which delivers power to rear wheels in base variants, while the AWD layout is optional. This huge amount of power provides excellent capabilities in all aspects. For example, this SUV can tow more than 9000 pounds, which is quite impressive.
Besides this unit, it is quite possible to see some additional engines in the offer for the 2019 Expedition. For example, there is a smaller 2.7-liter V6 with 325 horses and 400 pound-feet of torque. However, there are much more interesting reports around, which suggest a diesel engine in the offer. It is a familiar 3.0-liter unit, which has a max output of 255 horses.
2019 Ford Expedition release date and price
The 2019 Ford Expedition will probably come somewhere in late 2018. We don’t expect changes in price, so base models will go around 48.000 dollars. On the other side, a fully-loaded version will easily go over 70.000 dollars. When it comes to the competition, GM twins Tahoe and Yukon will definitely be main rivals, but there are also some excellent SUVs from Japan, such as Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada.
