Model year transition:
The carryover 2019 Expedition remains in adequate supply nationwide. Two new trim packages are available, the black-themed Stealth Edition and western-style Texas Edition.
The base XLT and mid-range Limited are easiest to find and most likely to be discounted. Locating the line-topping Platinum might take some effort. Extended-length Expedition Max comes in the same three trim levels. (The XL trim is for fleets only).
The carryover 2020 Expedition continues following into dealers, including the revived King Ranch Edition. Supplies will steadily improve over the next few months.
Current factory offers vary by region and are scheduled to expire January 2, 2020 unless otherwise noted. Any holiday bonus cash is reflected in these figures. Examples shown here are for California.
Up to $9,780 off:
The 2019 Expedition XLT now comes with a whopping $7,780 rebate for all buyers. The amount on non-XLT versions is $4,000.
There's also a $750 Select Inventory bonus on models in stock longer than 61 days, and buyers who finance through Ford at non-promotional rates will receive a $1,250 finance bonus. Add it all up, and you can save $9,780 on a 2019 Expedition XLT, or an even $6,000 on the other trims.
The initial rebate on the incoming 2020 Expedition is $500, and a $500 finance bonus is available.
Best lease deal:
Like last month, you can lease a 2019 Expedition XLT 4x2 starting at $479 for 36 months (10,500 miles a year) with $6,559 due at signing.
The effective monthly cost is $661, which falls just short of a good value in our analysis. This offer reflects a $2,000 trade-in bonus available to lessees with a vehicle to trade this month. The cash at signing will be $2,000 higher without it.
Leases on the 2020 Expedition XLT start at $555 for 39 months with $5,976 at signing. The effective monthly cost is $708, which isn't a good deal either. Terms will likely improve once the 2019s sell out.
0% APR + cash:
In place of the full rebate on a 2019 Expedition, Ford now offers 0% financing for 72 months. The deal comes with $7,030 bonus cash on the XLT, and $3,250 on the other trims.
Promotional rates on the 2020 Expedition range from 2.9% for 36 months to 4.9% for 60 months — plus $500 bonus cash.
