Ford's 2015 Expedition is being shown for the first time to the public at this year's 2014 DFW Auto Show. Since Texas is Ford’s largest market by sales volume, and home to the top two cities for Expedition sales – Dallas and Houston the manufacturer thought our area would be the perfect fit to introduce the latest model which will be released later this year.
The 2015 Ford Expedition will feature a 3.5-liter, direct-injected twin-turbocharged EcoBoost® engine such as the popular engine featured in Ford's F-Series; engines. The Expedition's EcoBoost is designed to deliver the models most powerful and fuel-efficient engine ever.
Advanced technology in the new Expedition includes Blind Spot Information System® with cross-traffic alert, electric power-assisted steering, SYNC® with MyFord Touch®. The latest model also features a sleeker new look and numerous technological and comfort upgrades.
The new model features a higher level of design with refreshed interior and exterior styling each with a distinct look and feel to give customers more choice than ever. A Platinum trim package, will be available on Expedition for the first time.
“The Platinum series brings Expedition into a whole new arena of design and style,” said Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “One of the strengths of Expedition has always been the different trim series we offer. From XLT to Limited and now with Platinum, we have an Expedition that will fit any customer’s needs.”
Using a suite of sensors that detect 46 unique body, steering and braking inputs, the advanced suspension monitors body motion and then adjusts Expedition’s damping system in milliseconds to manage the vehicle’s natural body motion. A vehicle with poor damping feels as if it is bouncing on its suspension springs; continuously controlled damping recognizes the weight of the vehicle, steering feedback and road undulations and then reacts accordingly, helping to control body motion so passengers experience an orderly, comfortable ride.
The new Expedition also features Ford’s innovative electric power-assisted steering, which gives drivers noticeably improved maneuverability at low speeds and better feel at high speeds, and saves fuel because it operates more efficiently than traditional pump-driven systems. The technology reduces steering effort and makes Expedition more engaging to drive.
The DFW Auto Show is this weekend only!
