New Ford Expedition History

Clipboard

History

As a response to the Chevy Tahoe, the Ford Expedition was born in the model year of 1997 as a SUV that would dominate at the larger end of the spectrum. The Expedition took a lot from the Ford’s large and in charge F-150 pickup and used much of its best qualities to get the most out of this new beast of an SUV. In addition, the Expedition can even be considered the successor for the Ford Bronco. This model became a strong option for many from its remarkable beginning and has only grown in power, accessibility, and dependability ever since.

The Ford Expedition has gone through three generations and has just entered its fourth generation in 2018. The first gen was 1997 to 2002, the second gen was 2003 to 2006, the third gen was 2007 to 2017, and now the fourth gen just hit in 2018 with a whole new design. Throughout these generations, a substantial amount of amazing changes have been seen. One of the more interesting changes is that before 2009 you could fit up to nine passenger instead of the eight of the 2018 model, but as safety and comfort become more essential the front seat being a bench become impractical.

Today the 2018 Ford Expedition really starts the new generation off strong with a new design based around material made of boron steel and aluminum that will not only be strong but also light enough to keep things smooth. Also, with the King Ranch trim out of the picture, the XLT, Limited, and Platinum trims step up to make sure the 2018 Expedition still keeps every type of buyer satisfied with affordable pricing options and optional seven-passenger seating for those who desire a little less. The history of the Ford Expedition is a journey of in its own right, but the 2018 Ford Expedition is ready to ride into the future.
