Ford Expedition Stealth Edition
Dressed-up Expedition will be available soonby Kirby, on
Ford was a big participant at the 2018 Texas State Fair, making its presence known thanks to four special edition SUVs. One of those special edition SUVs is the Expedition Stealth Edition, and of the four SUVs, it’s the one that received the most upgrades. The Ford Expedition Stealth Edition, together with the Expedition Texas Edition, will be available to order later this year. Pricing details will be announced soon.
What Makes The Ford Expedition Stealth Edition Special
If you’re picking between the two Expedition special editions that Ford brought to the Texas State Fair, you’re going to have to answer one fundamental question: a little or a lot? If your answer is a little, the Expedition Texas Edition is for you. If your answer is a lot, the Expedition Stealth Edition has your name written all over it.
The Ford Expedition Stealth Edition boasts an extraordinary amount of visual upgrades, at least compared to its counterpart, the Texas Edition, which has a badge and a set of wheels to show for its SE status.
The Stealth Edition, on the other hand, features gloss black accessories, creating a more upscale appearance than the standard Expedition Limited, the model from which it’s based on. These gloss-black accessories include the SUV’s grille, mirror caps, roof rails, and running boards. The tailgate appliqué, rear bumper skid plate, hitch cover, headlamp housing, fog lamp bezels, and taillamp housing are all getting the gloss-black treatment as well. One look at the Expedition Stealth Edition and you’ll immediately recognize it because it looks completely different from the standard Expedition.
The upgrades don’t end there, either. The SUV also gets its own exclusive badging, including a black “Expedition” badge in the front and a black “Limited” badge in the back, specifically on the tailgate. The Stealth Edition also rolls on a set of 22-inch premium black-painted aluminum wheels, including continuously controlled damping.
Step inside the Expedition Stealth Edition and you’ll be greeted by door handles dressed in body color, as well as red stitching accents throughout the interior.
These red stitches are everywhere. They’re on the seats, dashboard, door panels, center armrest, and even the steering wheel.
Since the Ford Expedition Stealth Edition is based on the Limited trim of the SUV, your purchase of the SE SUV — once it goes on sale — will include Ford’s new, second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine. This is the same EcoBoost V-6 that’s found in the F-150, and in both applications, the twin-turbocharged engine produces 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
Ford has made no mention on when the Expedition Stealth Edition will go on sale, but it will be available to order “later this year.” Since it’s already October, I can imagine that details on that end will arrive sooner than later. Expect Ford to also announce the price tag of the special edition Expedition as soon as it becomes available.
