2018 Ford Expedition

As you'll see in this car review, the 2018 Ford Expedition is a spacious, versatile, and powerful SUV. The team at Montrose Ford Lincoln of Alliance feels that it has a lot to offer drivers in the Alliance, Canton, and Hartville areas who like to hit the road on the weekend.

Keep reading for a small taste of what the Ford Expedition brings to the table.  

Ford Expedition Performance Specs

The first thing we noticed is that the Ford Expedition is a capable SUV, with two engine options that generate a lot of horsepower.

In fact, the base level engine is a 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 that produces 375 horsepower, and shows its strength with a torque output of 470 lb-ft. You can bump those numbers to 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque with the available 3.6L EcoBoost® V6 Platinum Series engine.

Both engines are paired with a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission that keeps you operating in an optimal gear, while still giving you the control to shift on-demand as desired.

While 2-wheel drive (2WD) is the standard, a 4-wheel drive (4WD) system is available for improved handling capabilities. The available Terrain Management System™ further improves handling by letting you choose between seven different drive modes like Wet, Gravel, and Snow to optimize your performance for the road ahead.

Take It All with You in the Ford Expedition: Towing and Cargo

If you're someone who likes to be prepared when you hit the open road, you'll probably like the fact that the ample cargo space in the 2018 Ford Expedition means you'll rarely have to leave anything behind.

This SUV can seat a total of eight passengers with all seats upright, while still providing you with 19.3 cubic feet of trunk space. In the Expedition Max configuration, you get even more room with 34.3 cubic feet behind the third row.

You can also unlock the following amount of cargo space in the Expedition by folding down the second and/or third rows:

  • Cargo volume behind second row: 57.5 cubic feet
  • Cargo volume behind first row: 104.6 cubic feet.

In the Expedition Max, you'll have the following measurements:

  • Cargo space behind second row: 73.3 cubic feet
  • Cargo space behind third row: 121.5 cubic feet

For what doesn't fit in the back, you can easily pull behind you, because the Ford Expedition has a maximum towing capacity of 9,200 pounds with 2WD and 9,300 pounds with 4WD. That's more than enough strength to take a boat up north or tow a 6-by-12-foot cargo trailer.

As you head to your destination with a boat or trailer in tow, you'll have several driver-assist features available to help you navigate your way through traffic, as well.

For example, the available Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) includes trailer coverage. This feature alerts you to cars in your side blind spot and extends this coverage to your blind spot alongside the trailer.

This can help you merge safely when pulling something bulky behind you, especially on heavily-travelled roads.
