2018 Ford Destination Expedition by Hulst Customs

Ford’s do-everything SUV now has more functions to go along with a beefed-up appearance

The Ford Expedition is headed to the 2018 SEMA Auto Show in two different guises. One of these two Expedition creations goes by the name "Destination Expedition," and it comes by way of Hulst Customs. The noted tuner developed its program with an eye towards turning the Expedition into the “ultimate SUV.” It features extensive upgrades in the exterior and interior, to go with a number of technical additions. The result is a go-anywhere version of the SUV that lives up to its Expedition name.

2018 Ford Expedition Classic by LGE*CTS Motorsports

This multiple personality Expedition is a nice addition to the garage

The Ford Expedition is arguably one of the most versatile SUVs in the market. It has the size, the technology, and the all-around capability that you’d want from a full-sized SUV. It’s also highly customizable, whether through Ford itself or through the aftermarket tuning scene. The Ford LGE*CTS Expedition Classic is a perfect example of the latter. It’s designed and built by noted designer Theresa Contreras, who focused on creating a “modern classic” interpretation of Ford’s popular SUV. There’s a lot to like about the this tuned Expedition, particularly its impressive presentation. We’ll get to see it up close at the 2018 SEMA Auto Show in Las Vegas.

2018 Ford Expedition Texas Edition

Special edition model gives the Expedition a Texas-sized personality

Ford balled out at the 2018 Texas State Fair with a pair of special edition Expedition models, one of which was appropriately named the Explorer Texas Edition. Based on the 2019 Expedition Limited trim, the Texas Edition is perfectly identified by unique badging throughout its body. It’s short on visual upgrades like its counterpart, the Expedition Stealth Edition, but it stands out because of its emphasis on hauling, hence the inclusion of a cargo package and Ford’s Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package. The Ford Expedition Texas Edition will be available to order later this year. Pricing details will be announced soon.

2018 Ford Expedition

Ford brings F-150-style technology to its full-size SUV

Ford worked tirelessly to improve the current F-150 by reducing mass and adding efficient turbocharged engines all mounted on a high-strength steel frame. For 2018, those same advancements make their way to the all-new Expedition. Nearly every nut and bolt is new, even down to the drivetrain. Ford’s updated 3.5-liter EcoBoost with 375 horsepower is paired with the new 10-speed automatic transmission, bringing more power with better fuel efficiency. The Expedition’s body panels are now aluminum and its interior shares many design cues from the F-Series pickups.

The 2018 Expedition rides on a modified version of the F-150’s fully boxed steel frame, but uses a four-wheel independent suspension system for a smooth ride. Both the standard-length Expedition and long-wheelbase Expedition MAX versions return, but Ford says the three-row SUV drops more than 300 pounds over the outgoing model. Technology improvements are vast, as well, including all the modern active safety equipment like adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, and automatic emergency braking. The in-dash tech also sees a big improvement, with Ford’s Sync 3 system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot for 10 devices in a 50-foot perimeter around the SUV. The familiar trim levels return, too, including XLT, Limited, and Platinum. The base XL trim is available for fleet customers as well. New for 2018 is an FX4 Off-Road package for the XLT trim. It brings added hardware for tackling harsh terrain, while set apart with visual changes.

Update 06/19/2017: Ford announced horsepower and torque specs for the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, along with a higher-output version in the Platinum trim. A new FX4 Off-Road package debuts for the XLT trim.

2015 Ford Expedition EL Platinum - Driven

2015 Ford Expedition EL Platinum - Driven

Big, burly truck-based SUVs may have officially jumped the shark in 2008 when gasoline prices spiked and the recession took hold, but don’t count this segment out just yet. Although full-size SUVs are quickly being replaced by minivan-like, three-row crossovers (such as the 2013-2014 Chevrolet Traverse and 2014 Nissan Pathfinder), there are plenty of people out there who still need an SUV that is fully capable of hauling almost a baseball team full of passengers without giving up any of the ruggedness or payload capacity that a solid frame allows. For these people, the 2015 Ford Expedition is among a dying breed of body-on-frame SUVs made popular in an era when gas price hovered close to $1.00 per gallon.

2015 Ford Expedition EL Platinum - Driven

Big, burly truck-based SUVs may have officially jumped the shark in 2008 when gasoline prices spiked and the recession took hold, but don’t count this segment out just yet. Although full-size SUVs are quickly being replaced by minivan-like, three-row crossovers (such as the 2013-2014 Chevrolet Traverse and 2014 Nissan Pathfinder), there are plenty of people out there who still need an SUV that is fully capable of hauling almost a baseball team full of passengers without giving up any of the ruggedness or payload capacity that a solid frame allows. For these people, the 2015 Ford Expedition is among a dying breed of body-on-frame SUVs made popular in an era when gas price hovered close to $1.00 per gallon.

A lot has changed in the automobile industry since those days, and a key example of this is the 2015 Ford Expedition. At the height of the SUV craze, not having a V-8 under the hood was almost certainly a death sentence for any full-size truck or SUV, but as proof of just how far Ford is taking its EcoBoost engine technology, the new Expedition is only available with the twin-turbo V-6. To see how this big six-cylinder SUV stacks up against a segment filled with gas-guzzling V-8s, I had the chance to take the long-wheelbase 2015 Ford Expedition EL in the new luxury-minded Platinum trim level for a two-week spin during a recent family vacation.

2015 Ford Expedition

2015 Ford Expedition

Ford has pulled the covers off its newest, full-size, and only body-on-frame SUV today, the 2015 Ford Expedition. Still in its third generation, the Expedition gets a much-needed makeover that includes many of the designs and features its cousin, the Lincoln Navigator received just months prior.

Much has changed to better the Expedition and help with fuel economy and drivability, but much remains the same or carryover from the previous year. The biggest news under its resculpted hood is the addition of Ford’s bread-n-butter 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. Gone is the old 5.4-liter Triton V-8, leaving the EcoBoost as the Expedition’s only powerplant. Both the standard and EL, or extended length versions return with seating for five and eight passengers in high-riding comfort.

Speaking of comfort, Ford is bringing its popular, top-of-the-line Platinum series to the Expedition. The trim level ranks above the western-style King Ranch that previously held the top spot. Like the F-150s, the Platinum series will focus more on modern luxury with a clean, non-themed design aimed at more the ‘city folk’ type. MyFord Touch, SYNC, push-button start, blind sport warning, and even the F-150’s “Truck Apps” will be available.

Also new is Ford’s first-ever attempt at a continuously controlled damping suspension system. It features three driver-selectable drive modes that tailor the ride style to changing conditions. It’s designed to manage body motion, steering feedback, and unevenness in the road. Helping the system out is Ford’s new electric power-assisted steering. That system is said to improve maneuverability at low speeds and provide more feel at higher speeds. It will ever automatically compensate for heavy cross winds and road crowns.

2014 Ford Expedition

2014 Ford Expedition

Ford released the third-generation Expedition in 2007, and it has remained relatively unchanged since then, with the exception of some trim changes. If you were hoping for big changes in 2014, then you are in for a serious disappointment, as it remains nearly unchanged once again. The only real change is the addition of a new mechanical load-leveling system in place of the loud air-based system.

Don’t fret, however, as the Expedition also retains the ruggedness that it always has had, and is one of the few SUVs to retain its body-on-frame construction. This ruggedness includes a 9,200-pound towing capacity and a sub-9-second run to 60 mph.

Is this enough to keep the Expedition competitive with the likes of the 2014 Chevrolet Suburban and the 2014 Toyota Sequoia?

Click past the jump to read our full review on the long-in-the-tooth Expedition to find out if it remains a class leader or loses some real estate to its competitors.
