The Expedition is a full-size SUV produced by Ford. It was originally launched in 1996, as a replacement for Bronco. In the time when it was launched, it was positioned between Explorer and Excursion but since 2005, it is the largest SUV in the Ford’s lineup. This great SUV is one of the last ones that are truck-based. It borrows most of the parts from F-150 pickup. So far, we have seen three generations of it. Current model was released in 2007 and as you probably know, it came refreshed last year. Since next-generation model is planned to come about year or a two, it is expected that 2016 Ford Expedition will come without bigger modifications, with the pretty much same characteristics as previous model.
2016 Ford Expedition details
As we already mentioned, 2016 Ford Expedition is expected to feature all of the changes that came with 2015 year model. Just like models from previous years, it will be available in two variants, when it is about dimensions. Beside standard, there is also an EL model, which features longer wheelbase, and larger overall dimensions. This model is available in four trims – XLT, Limited, King Ranch and Platinum. Every trim has its own list of standard features, which will be pretty much unchanged, compared to previous-year model. The 2016 Ford Expedition will be full of safety features. Some of the most notable will be antilock brakes, traction and stability control, front fog/driving lights, and a post-collision safety system. There are also systems like MyKey teen-oriented speed and audio limiting technology or Blind Spot Information System, which is available in higher trims.
2016 Ford Expedition engine
The 2016 Ford Expedition will feature the same engine as 2015 year model. As you probably, know, last year we saw a new engine that debuted in this full-size crossover. It is a 3.5 liter turbocharged V6, which is good enough for 365 horses and 420 pound-feet of torque. It will be paired with 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission. Just like previous models, RWD configuration will be offered as standard, while AWD will be optional. Fuel consumption is around 18 mpg in a combined drive.
2016 Ford Expedition release date and price
The 2016 Ford Expedition is expected to come later this year. This will probably be the last year of production of this model, so price changes aren’t expected. Next generation is expected to come in 2016, as 2017 year model.
