2021 Ford Expedition: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

The Ford Expedition went through a significant overhaul in 2018, bringing a new, sharper look to this three-row SUV. Other than a few trim and feature updates, this full-size SUV has remained mostly unchanged since that redesign. We expect the 2021 Expedition to be a carryover.

In its 2018 redesign, the Ford Expedition retained its boxy, long body by gaining sharper creases, sharp C-shaped headlights, a bold grille, stylish bumpers, and more. We expect this design to remain the same when the 2021 Expedition arrives. Ford may treat buyers to a new design with a refresh in 2022.

Inside, the 2018 Expedition redesign retained its truck-like looks but brought in a more modern style with its angular HVAC vents, additional soft-touch materials, and more color options. We expect this interior to remain the same in the 2021 Expedition, including its standard features like a six-speaker audio system, 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, multiple USB ports, and more.

Ford Expedition

Under its hood, we anticipate the 2021 Ford Expedition to carry on with the same 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine as the current model. We expect it to remain at 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque in most trims but jump to 400 hp and 480 lb-ft in its Platinum trim. This power will head through a 10-speed automatic transmission on its way to the rear wheels. Four-wheel drive will be an option.

The IIHS hasn’t tested the new-generation Expedition yet, but it has been through NHTSA testing and received a five-star overall rating. The Expedition also comes standard with loads of advanced safety gear, including blind-spot monitors, automatic emergency braking, and active lane control. We expect the safety ratings and equipment to remain the same in the 2021 Expedition.

Pricing & Release Date

Ford hasn’t revealed the 2021 Expedition’s official on-sale date, but based on previous release schedules, we expect a fall 2020 arrival.

Pricing isn’t available yet, but the 2021 Expedition will likely remain close to the current model’s $54,505 to $81,805 (destination fees included) MSRP range.

This full-size SUV will compete with the Chevy Suburban, Toyota Sequoia, and Nissan Armada.
