Ford won't yet confirm that these numbers are accurate for the new model, though.
Ford still isn’t officially saying how much power the 2018 Expedition produces other than that is 3.5-liter biturbo V6 makes more than the current 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. However, the Blue Oval’s Canadian promo Website for the upcoming SUV might have an answer. According to a snippet of text there, the updated EcoBoost engine is potentially good for 400 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque.
Unfortunately, we can’t be entirely sure that this is the 2018 Expedition’s actual output. Ford isn’t saying anything, either. “We don't have approved figures yet. I can't confirm those numbers,” company spokesperson Becky Sanch told Motor1. Ford Canada spokesperson Christine Hollander echoed that statement saying "We have not disclosed the figures yet."
Assuming the figures on the Canadian site are accurate, then a 2018 Expedition would have even more power than the luxury-oriented Lincoln Navigator. The 3.5-litre EcoBoost in it currently makes 380 hp and 460 lb-ft.
Ford hooks the updated engine up to its 10-speed automatic gearbox. Buyers can choose whether the transmission routes power solely to the rear wheels or through a four-wheel-drive system with a low-range transfer case.
In addition to the powertrain overhaul, Ford gives its big SUV a bevy of other updates. An aluminum body and revised frame help the Expedition cut 136 kilograms (300 pounds), even though the model is 10 or 13 centimetres (four or five inches) longer, depending on the configuration.
Inside, buyers can choose whether to cram eight people inside with two rows of benches or fit seven occupants by opting for captain’s chairs. With 17 cup holders, six USB ports, and an available Wi-Fi hotspot, there’s plenty of tech to keep everyone entertained, too.
The 2018 Expedition goes on sale this fall for a still-undisclosed price.
