2015 FORD EXPEDITION: While at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, check out the refreshed Ford Expedition, featuring a new look, quieter cabin with more technology and a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine. The original Expedition appeared at the 1996 Chicago show, and continues as Ford’s largest utility vehicle, with seating for eight. This model year, the only engine offered in Expedition in North America is the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 that generates 365-horsepower and a healthy 420 lb.-ft. of torque for best-in-class towing of up to 9,200 pounds. The V-6 is linked to a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. This year, the standard Expedition has three rows of seats and up to 108.3 cubic feet of cargo space. It sits on a 119-inch wheelbase, making it a little more than 6 inches longer than Ford Explorer. A longer-wheelbase version – 131 inches – has three rows of seats and best-in-class maximum cargo space of 130.8 cubic feet. Built in Louisville, KY, the Expedition is offered in four trim levels: XLT, Limited, King Ranch, and the top-of-the-line Platinum. An extended length (EL) version of each is also available. The rear Cargo Organizer in Expedition EL models features a panel divider that splits the space in whichever direction the cargo necessitates. Expedition also offers an available power liftgate for easier loading and unloading, a capless fuel-filling system, keyless entry and programmable MyKey system that limits top speed and audio volume control (think teenage drivers). In response to customer demand, Ford will introduce a top-of-the-line Platinum series Expedition with unique, refined interior appointments.
