2015 Ford Expedition debuts at the DFW Auto Show

Although the once dominant full-size SUV market has been relegated to supplementing an automaker's lineup, giving way to the now-popular "crossover", some automakers are continuing to roll out updated versions for their customers.

Ford debuted their 2015 Ford Expedition at the DFW Auto Show this weekend. Beyond the updated front and rear clips, the major news lies underneath the hood...gone is the venerable 5.4 liter V8 engine, with the 3.5 L Ecoboost V6 taking its place. Ford has stated that the power output for the Ecoboost should be similar to that in the Navigator (a gussied-up version for Lincoln), producing at least 370 hp, as well as 430 lb. ft. of torque. In addition to the increased power ratings over the outgoing V8, it's also expected that it will have better low-end torque and fuel economy. Unlike its main competitor, the Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon/Yukon XL, there won't be a V8 option, although the expected power ratings should give it an advantage over the General's base V8 (355 hp/383 lb. ft).

On the inside, the basic layout has been retained, albeit with some upgraded technology. Two LCD color screens now reside in the gauge cluster, as well as an 8 inch screen that houses SYNC with the infamous MyFordTouch. Other notable features now available is the new Sony audio system with 10 speakers (as well as 700 watts), ambient LED lighting with seven colors to choose from, rear-view camera, and a smart-key with push-button start.

In addition to the returning XLT, Limited, and King Ranch trim levels, the 2015 Ford Expedition will also have the Platinum option available. The Platinum differentiates itself from the Limited by offering potential customers a more urban feel that should be "fresh and sophisticated". It will also feature a new leather seating option called "Brunello" (a red wine color with tuxedo-stripe accents). It is expected that the newest Expedition will be available for sale to the public by the end of this year.
