2018 Ford Expedition Updates, Upgrades, Improvements and Enhancements
The new Ford Expedition’s superiority over the 2017 Ford Expedition begins with its engine. That’s because the 2018 Ford Expedition features an improved and enhanced 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine offering 10 more horsepower and 50 more pound-feet of torque than the 2017 Expedition, topping out at 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
Thanks to that updated and upgraded engine, the 2018 Expedition can tow 100 pounds more than the 2017 Expedition. More specifically, the new Expedition can tow up to 9,300 pounds, which is also more than any other SUV in its segment. And the 2018 Ford Expedition makes towing all of that easier and more stress-free than ever before thanks to its all-new Pro Trailer Backup Assist System, which wasn’t available for the 2017 Expedition.
