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 and that will continue with the 2021 Expedition.
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. This design will 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. This interior will 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.
Under its hood, 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. Safety ratings and equipment will likely carry on in the 2021 Expedition.
Pricing will range from $50,720 to $80,520 (destination fees included).
