Off-road   Terrain Management System

For the more than 20 percent of Expedition owners that use their SUV for off-road adventure, Ford introduced the all-new 2018 Expedition FX4 Off-Road Package, making this the most off-road-capable Expedition ever.

Ford ExpeditionExpedition’s all-new easy-to-use Terrain Management System lets FX4 customers select from seven special drive modes that help Expedition automatically adapt to different road conditions. This includes normal for around town driving, sport for more spirited trips, tow/haul for improved towing and hauling performance, eco for enhanced fuel economy, grass/gravel/snow for loose terrain, sand for low traction situations and mud/rut for uneven surfaces.

Ford ExpeditionExpedition FX4 drivers also can manually select either 2WD or 4WD modes in a given drive mode, depending on their preferences and terrain. The all-new Expedition provides generous space, connectivity and smart new technology. The Expedition FX4 Off-Road Package has a powerful 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine, rated at 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, plus standard Auto Start-Stop, an all-new 10-speed transmission and available best-in-class towing of 9,300 pounds.

Ford ExpeditionThe all-new Expedition’s roomy, flexible interior offers seating for up to eight people with a wide cargo area to hold their gear, depending on cargo weight and load distribution. Expedition features a second-row seat with tip-and-slide functionality – providing easy access to the third row without the need to first remove a child safety seat. Once in the third row, even adults will appreciate more legroom and reclining seats. The all-new Expedition lineup, including the FX4 Off-Road Package, goes on sale this fall.

Ford ExpeditionPatented electronic limited-slip rear differential helps improve off-road performance in low-traction situations by automatically varying power output side-to-side, depending on which wheels need extra traction. With 3.73:1 gearing, the electronic limited-slip rear differential also improves towing performance and capability. Off-road-tuned shocks more stiffly tuned to keep wheels in contact with the road.
