The current generation of this high-end SUV has existed for a couple of years and it appears as the 2020 Ford Expedition will come with no more significant changes. We are just about to see a content design strategy, which made this SUV a class leader in many aspects. The current generation came recently, as we’ve mentioned, and it benefits from the new F-150 in many ways. Of course, this mostly refers to the efficacy, which is by far the best in class.
While other models are heavy and thirsty, this one comes not only with significant weight savings, but using a super-efficient V6 engine as well. All in all, we are fairly sure that the 2020 Ford Expedition won’t feature any significant shift. The biggest rival, Chevy Tahoe is coming completely new this year, so we are pretty sure that Ford will wait to see how the new Tahoe looks like, and only after that, we can expect to see updates.
2020 Ford Expedition Changes
In conditions of both base design characteristics and aesthetics, the 2020 Ford Expedition will remain the same. This generation has been released a couple of years back. It rides on a today, comfortable T3 platform, which has been originally introduced with the mythical F-150 truck. Benefits from the new architecture are numerous. Most importantly, this model is a lot lighter compared to the previous generation.
In practice, this means not only superior efficiency but improved driving characteristics as well. In conditions of the styling, the 2020 Ford Expedition will continue in the same way. The current generation is based upon the company’s latest design language. The front end seems pretty much like the F-150, while the rest of the vehicle features typical wagon body design. The best we could see for the next year is a couple of new color options.
2020 Ford Expedition Redesign
The first thing you will notice about this SUV is a spacious cottage, which is not any wonder, considering it gains 3.5 inches using the last redesign, both regarding wheelbase and overall length. Benefits from such size are obvious. All types are spacious and comfortable, including the third one that can also easily accommodate passengers. The cargo area is ample as well. You can count on 20.6 cubic feet behind the third row and nearly 105 cubic feet of total cargo volume.
Things are even better using the stretched XL version, which features 36 cubic feet behind the third row and 120 cubic feet of overall cargo space. Despite the fact that we are speaking about a truck-based vehicle, even the most basic models are full of quality, soft-touch materials. In higher trims, you can count on a fairly much same level of quality as in Lincoln models.
Interior Design and Features
This particularly refers to the infotainment technology. Base models are equipped with a regular 4.2-inch display, though you may count on items like four USB ports, Bluetooth, a six-speaker sound system, satellite radio. Things are far better in higher prices, where you can depend on a large 8-inch touchscreen with the latest model of the company’s famous SYNC infotainment system, which is fast and quite easy to use. Other notable available features are Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a navigation system, a dual-screen rear seat entertainment system, premium 12-speaker audio system and much more.
When it comes to security, all Expedition models will be equipped with a rearview camera and rear parking sensors. On the other side, a list of accessible features is long and contains things like blind spot tracking with rear cross traffic alert, large automatic beams, lane departure warning; lane keeps assist, pedestrian detection, forward collision warning and a lot more.
2020 Ford Expedition Engine
With no doubt, the 2020 Ford Expedition will continue using a search engine. Unlike most rivals, the Expedition comes with six cylinders, instead of eight. However, this is a very efficient engine, which provides plenty of power. It provides around 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
In higher prices, you can depend on a small energy increase, so a maximum output signal goes around 400 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. The engine comes paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. Besides lots of electricity, you can even count on very great fuel economy, which extends around 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
Release Date and Price
Expect to see the 2020 Ford Expedition sometime late in the year. The price should continue being the same, which means approximately 52.000 bucks for the base version.
