We have all expected from Ford to present redesigned model Expedition this year. That obviously didn’t happen so now we are waiting its next move. First clue that Expedition will be redesigned next year are spy photos that we have. New model has been spotted on Michigan streets. Since it was completely camouflaged we expect big changes in its external look. Its official presentation will, probably be on some big auto show next spring as 2015 Ford Expedition.
New 2015 Ford Expedition has been spotted
Before it has been spotted in Michigan we could only hope that new Expedition will be redesigned, but now we know that for sure. The main thing is certain, it will stay in a class of large SUVs, but it will not be as boxy as it use to be. Since its platform is based on F-150 we can expect some similarities to Atlas concept. This refers to the front of the new 2015 Ford Expedition, while the rear end will be very similar to the previous model. Inside will be comfortable and spacious as we expected from this model. Interior will have redesign steering wheel and some new knobs and buttons on the dashboard. Big touchscreen will still be equipped with MyFord Touch system. New 2015 Ford Expedition will come in four trim levels: a basic XL, XLT, Limited and King Ranch.
2015 Ford Expedition with Coyote engine
Beside complete new look, 2015 Ford Expedition might come with new engine, too. One option will be 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 twin turbo engine. This engine can deliver around 365 horsepower. The 5.4-liter V-8 engine which is under the hood of the present model will probably be replaced. Its replacement should be 5.0-liter V-8 Coyote engine with much better fuel economy. Matched with 6-speed automatic transmission we expect fuel economy around 14/20 mpg (city/highway).
Price and official release date
At this moment we don’t know exactly how changes will affect on the price of the new 2015 Ford Expedition, but the starting price should be between $40,000 and $50,000. As we said official release date should be next spring at some big auto show. If that happens we can expect mass production by fall 2014.
