The redesigned Ford Expedition 2018 follows the trail blazed by the Ford F-150, cutting weight through an aluminum body and lightweight components. All told, this massive vehicle shaves 300 pounds from its previous weight, while accumulating on new comfort, convenience and safety features.
2018 Ford Expedition Design
Images, it seems freaking huge, helped by the F-150-ish headlights that integrate into a very large grid and taillights that seem to swallow most of the rear end. It’s like a Ford Explorer was given a handful of steroids and pushed into one of these square watermelon molds. The C-pillar is a reminiscence of GM’s boxy, full size SUV, too.
The interior is also truck-ish. The vents are large and sturdy, there is a whole cargo of storage between the driver and the passenger, and it is rocking a Sync 3 info-entertainment system and a large screen between the gauges (at least in the balance shown here ). The shift lever is now a rotating dial, as well.
