Since it debuted at the Manila International Auto Show last year, the all-new Ford Expedition has set the benchmark in the country’s full-size SUV segment with a bold and robust new design, improved performance, and a collection of best-in-class luxury features.
Most notable enhancements include a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and innovative changes in its transmission, fuel consumption, frame, body, and driver-assist technologies.
With the increasing demand for SUVs in the Philippines, the all-new Ford Expedition is the perfect choice for the discerning car market seeking for refinement, power, and comfort in their SUVs. Here are five things you need to know about the all-new Ford Expedition:
It’s the most powerful Expedition by far.
It is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, capable of producing 375 horsepower at 5,000rpm and 470 lb-ft torque at 3,500rpm. This powerful engine is mated with a 10-speed SelectShift Automatic Transmission, offering quicker shift times along with a wide ratio span that optimizes gear spacing for greater responsiveness.
It is more fuel efficient.
The Ford Expedition achieves greater fuel efficiency and vehicle tailpipe emissions during city driving through its Auto Start-Stop Technology. This programs the engine to switch off while keeping the air-conditioning, audio system, and exterior lighting functioning as the vehicle comes to a stop when in traffic.
It sports a bolder and more noticeable look.
The all-new Expedition has been redesigned with fully-boxed high strength steel frame and all-aluminum-alloy body. It comes with a raised power dome hood, which adds to the daring stance of the vehicle. Behind, the Expedition features an accent trim indicating “Expedition,” followed by new LED tail lamps.
It offers maximum comfort inside.
The all-new Expedition supports a spacious cabin with room for up to eight passengers and their gear, with power folding seats that allow second-row seats to tip and slide forward for easy third row access. This current generation Expedition also offers a bucket seat option.
It makes every drive more convenient.
Boosting convenience when driving the all-new Expedition is a collection of intuitive features, which include SYNC 3 with built-in navigation. It also has more options to charge devices with power outlets on every row. While on the road, drivers can also use natural light for more scenic drives through its panoramic vista roof, which brightens the vehicle interior and gives passengers their own skylight.
