2020 Ford Expedition: Redesign, Engine, Safety, Release Date, and Price – The Ford Expedition has been in the market for many years. If anything, it speaks of its quality as an SUV.

If you want to know more about this upcoming Expedition, you’d want to read on. We will tell you possible redesign, engine, safety, release date, and price.

2020 Ford Expedition Redesign
The Ford Expedition lineup has received major redesigns this year. Because of that, we don’t see any significant changes in the current Expedition. We are unlikely to see any significant changes in the 2020 Expedition, either. After all, the general trend of a lineup is a refresh once in a few years. 2019 and 2020 are both too close. For this reason, we expect the 2020 model to get changes that are not significant.
So, in terms of looks, the 2020 Expedition will look similar to its predecessor. While major redesigns are very unlikely to happen, the 2020 model will still get some redesigns that will emphasize its look. The 2020 Expedition should get some refinements fitting for a 2020 SUV.
As we have said earlier, the major redesigns happen for the 2018 model. For this model, Ford combined the face of the F-150 with the SUV body of the Expedition lineup. The result is the 2018 Expedition. There is not much difference in the current Expedition. While the 2019 model looks similar to the 2018 model, the Previous Expedition comes with more appealing crisp lines.
The 2020 Expedition is very likely to carry on the same design as the current Expedition. We expect the two to look similar. That being said, there will be some minor redesigns and changes here and there. There is nothing much we can say about this but the changes 2020 model gets will not change its look drastically. If anything, it will emphasize its style.
As expected from the Expedition lineup, the previous model comes with a spacious cargo space, good finish, good fit, and seven seats. It also comes with utility and features that will make things easier and more comfortable. The 2020 Expedition will not differ much from this. At the very least, we expect the 2020 model to be as comfortable as the previous model. Hopefully, it will be more.
2020 Ford Expedition Engine Specs
The New Ford Expedition is powered by a 3.5L, twin-turbocharged V6 engine in all trim levels. We expect the 2020 Expedition to get the same engine. After all, this engine is very capable of doing tasks you throw at them.
While all trim levels get the same engine, the power and torque generated are different. For instance, the XLT and Limited have an output of up to 375 horsepower with up to 470 lb-ft of torque. On the other hand, the Platinum trim engine is tweaked to be a bit more powerful with an additional 25 horsepower as well as 10 lb-ft of torque, making it have 400 horsepower with 480 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a 10-speed auto transmission gearbox.
As you can see, in terms of power, the 3.5L, twin-turbocharged V6 engine is powerful. It can tow up to 9,300 pounds with ease. This towing capacity is very high in its class. The downside is that the engine only has below 20 mpg combined fuel economy based on EPA rating. While the fuel economy is low, it is quite common in the SUV class.
The New Ford Expedition has good scores in terms of crash-test. This is not a surprising thing given the fact that it has a lot of safety features. Every trim level, including the base trim level, comes with parking sensors. There is also a rearview camera, which will display on a screen.
There are also safety features such as adaptive cruise control, active lane control, blind-spot monitors, auto emergency braking, forward-collision warning system, a camera system with surround-view, LED headlights and so on. Unfortunately, these features are available only in the higher trim levels.
We expect the 2020 Ford Expedition will have similar safety features, albeit we do hope some of the safety features from the higher trim levels become standard for the base one. Safety is one of the top considerations of modern customers. If the Expedition SUV is to be competitive, Ford should add more safety features to it.
2020 Ford Expedition Release Date and Price
So far, Ford has not released date of the 2020 Ford Expedition. Although we don’t know yet when will the upcoming Expedition be released, we can expect it to enter the market either in mid to late 2019 or early 2020. The reason is that the upcoming Ford Expedition is meant to be a 2020 model.
There is no announcement regarding the price, either. The usual trend is that the price range of a new model will not be too different from its predecessor. In this case, the price range of the 2020 Expedition will be more or less the same as the previous Expedition. The price range should range between $52,890 and $76,595.
In summary, the 2020 Ford Expedition is unlikely to get drastic changes that make it looks too different from its predecessor. Sure, there will be changes, but we don’t expect them to change the overall look. Rather, the changes will be more of refinement of the existing model.
All these years the Expeditions are reliable, capable and comfortable SUVs. The 2020 Expedition should be at least able to provide these. What do you think?
we need to tell you that what you read here may or may not be true. As its name suggests, the 2020 Ford Expedition is a model for 2020. Since the gap between now and 2020 is long, there can be changes that we don’t include or no changes that we do include. Also, the image we include is an illustration, not the real image of the 2020 Expedition.
