The 2018 Ford Expedition Delivers Rugged Performance

The 2018 Expedition, Ford’s legendary SUV, has received a performance upgrade for the new model year. Explore your options:

  • Choose between rear-wheel drive or Control Trac four-wheel drive.
  • All Expedition models are equipped with a 3.5L V6.
  • The Expedition can tow up to 9,300 pounds with a Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package.
  • The Platinum trim increases the output of the V6 engine with even more thrilling acceleration and speed.

The Expedition Sports a V6 Under the Hood

While other SUVs might rely on a 4-cylinder engine for their base trim, the Expedition is outfitted with a V6 throughout the model line. Check out the performance specs before you make your decision:

  • 2018 Expedition XLT
    • Engine: 3.5L EcoBoost V6
    • Transmission: 10-Speed Automatic with SelectShift
    • Horsepower: 375 hp
    • Torque: 470 lb-ft
    • EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy (City): 17 mpg with FWD/17 mpg with 4WD

As you can see, the Expedition is well equipped for outdoor adventures in the base trim. Even without a towing package, it’s still rated to tow up to 6,000 pounds with front-wheel drive.
