The time has finally come for a first drive opportunity in the all-new 2018 Ford Expedition. Ford’s biggest SUV has been completely redesigned on a new chassis and with an all-aluminum body. There are still two versions of the Expedition, the regular wheelbase (competes against the Chevy Tahoe), and the long version Expedition Max that will compete against the likes of the Chevy Suburban). Can the new Ford Expedition win market share from the leading full-size SUVs from GM? This first drive event will help us figure this out.

The more important question is: how do you use your full-size SUVs? What information are you most interested in? Let us know in the comments below and will get as much information on this as possible. We will have access to Ford’s engineering and product planning teams.
Ford is introducing an off-road ready FX4 version of the Expedition for 2018. It is aimed to do battle against the likes of the Chevy Tahoe Z71.
The new Expedition is powered by two versions of the 3.5L EcoBoost V6. There are two power levels (up to 400 hp), depending on what trim of the Expedition you choose. The 10-speed automatic transmission is the only gear-box choice. The SUV is rated to tow 9,300 lbs in the 2WD model.
Two-wheel-drive version of the standard Expedition is EPA-rated to get 24 MPG on the highway.
Naturally, the new Expedition can be loaded with all of the latest technology and features: latest infotainment, panoramic sunroof, luxurious leather, and more interior space are all there. All of the capability and comfort feature push the price into the $80K+ range for a fully loaded model.
