2018 Ford Expedition.

Confident performance meets a comfortable ride.

Ford engineers made the 3.5L EcoBoost® the standard engine because they knew how important performance is in this full-size vehicle. Ride comfort too. That’s why they gave Expedition an independent rear suspension. Ride quality and control are enhanced even further with a 10-speed automatic transmission and available Continuously Controlled Damping.
The 2018 Ford Expedition is powered by its 3.5L EcoBoost engine.

3.5L EcoBoost® Engine

EcoBoost technology powers performance in the Ford Expedition. Experience surprising responsiveness in the most powerful Expedition engine yet, compliments of two technologies: direct injection helping maximize power from every drop of fuel, and twin air-to-air intercooled turbochargers delivering a surge of on-demand power.

Independent Rear Suspension

When designing the Expedition, Ford engineers departed from the conventional solid rear axle in favor of the independent multilink rear suspension (IRS). They chose the IRS because it lets each rear wheel handle road conditions on its own terms, enhancing ride quality and control. The IRS design also allows for increased leg- and head room, a convenient fold-flat third-row bench seat and low load-floor height.
The 2018 Ford Expedition is available with Continuously Controlled Damping which offers enhanced performance feel.

Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD)

Expedition offers Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD). A suite of electronic sensors continuously monitors 46 unique motions. The damping system responds in milliseconds to help keep you confidently in control. Choose from three settings – Comfort, Normal or Sport – for the performance feel you prefer. CCD is standard on Expedition Platinum and optional on Limited.
