The Expedition is a full-size SUV produced by Ford. It was originally launched in 1997. During these almost two decades, we saw three generations of it. Current model was launched in 2007 and it is expected to be redesigned soon. According to the latest reports, a fourth generation of this great crossover is expected to come as 2017 Ford Expedition, which means that new model will come probably in the second half on next-year. It will come with plenty of changes. It will get new platform, new look, new cabin, drivetrain etc.

It is almost for sure that 2017 Ford Expedition will come completely redesigned. New model will get new platform. It is still unknown will new model get new, unibody structure, or it will continue in traditional manner, with conventional body-on frame structure. In any case, massive use of light weight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber are expected, so 2017 Expedition is expected to come significantly lighter than its predecessor, which will eventually improve overall performances, especially in terms of fuel economy. When it is about interior, plenty of changes are also expected. We will see a new cabin, able to accommodate eight passengers. The interior of 2017 Ford Expedition will also come with completely new styling, and also with plenty of new high-technology features, both in terms of safety and entertainment.
