More appealing, in other words

Ford Expedition

Before the fourth-generation Ford Expedition arrives in 2017, the American carmaker is giving the current model one final push, which features an exterior redesign and the addition of an EcoBoost engine found in F-Series pickups. That's right: Aside from the styling refresh, the full-size SUV now boasts Ford's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 powerplant, mated to a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. This engine is said to deliver "more power and performance than the current 5.4-liter V8."

Also, Ford is introducing a top-of-the-line Platinum variant for the Expedition, featuring premium interior appointments like SYNC with MyFord Touch, push-button start, and Blind Spot Information System.

"This new Expedition is proof that Ford is committed to remaining the leader in utilities--small, medium and large," said Expedition chief engineer Jackie DiMarco. "We listened to our customers and created a full-size utility vehicle that doesn't compromise in performance, technology or design."

Revisions done to the Expedition include an all-new front end, new factory-installed 22-inch wheels, a redesigned rear hatch, and new chrome-tipped exhaust pipes.
