Ford has completely redone its full-size SUV, the Expedition, for 2018. It still offers a smooth-riding independent rear suspension, power fold-flat third-row seats and a 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 engine. But like the F-150 pickup, the redesigned model debuts an all-new weight-saving aluminum body. The 2018's freshly chiseled sheetmetal fits right in among Ford's other SUV offerings.
The 2018 Expedition is available in standard-length and long-wheelbase versions, with the larger of the two appropriately dubbed the MAX. Available trims for consumers are the base XLT at $51,695, midlevel Limited at $62,585 and top-of-the-line Platinum at $72,710, which range from being $4,570 to $8,540 more expensive than the 2017 models they replace. The extended-wheelbase MAX is a $2,600 upcharge and four-wheel drive adds around $3,000, depending on trim level. There is also a fleet-only XL model for police and first-responder duty.
