2018 Ford Expedition FX4 is Off-Road Ready
Ford is introducing the most off-road capable Expedition ever, with the FX4 Off-Road Package available on the all-new 2018 Ford Expedition. This package adds the technology and 4×4 equipment needed to enable this family SUV to take on tough trails.
“The FX4 Off-Road package delivers off-road driving confidence,” said Mike Kipley, Expedition vehicle engineering manager. “The technology we’re using works to adapt to different driving conditions so customers can enjoy the adventure without worry.”
An all-new, high-strength steel frame and tough aluminum-alloy body are the perfect foundation for an excellent off-road vehicle. These advanced materials have allowed Ford engineers to save up to 300 pounds, which allows for more technology and features than ever before.
The 2018 Ford Expedition FX4 Off-Road Package includes an electronic limited-slip rear differential, off-road tuned shocks, all-terrain tires, seven underbody skid plates, unique 18-inch Magnetic Metallic cast-aluminum wheels, chrome running boards, unique badging and rubber floor liners for easy cleanup.
Ford’s easy-to-use Terrain Management System allows Expedition FX4 drivers to select from seven different drive modes, which adapt to different road conditions. A few of these modes include a tow/haul mode, eco for improved fuel economy, sand for low traction and a mud/rut mode for uneven surfaces. Drivers can also manually select either 2WD or 4WD.
A powerful 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 comes standard, and is rated for 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. It features Auto Start-Stop technology and is mated to an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission. The 2018 Expedition also offers best-in-class towing of 9,300 pounds.
Inside, there is room for up to eight people and a large cargo area to hold their gear. A second-row seat with tip-and-slide functionality provides easy access to the third row without the need to remove a child safety seat.
