Ford’s largest SUV has been on the market since the year 2018, but it has plenty of good features to provide. It’s big and powerful, with a maximum towing weight that is 9.300 pounds. However, some models can get to sixty in just five seconds. Moreover, the enormous infotainment displays are pretty modern in technology. In all, it’s evident that the current model has a few good years to go before an overhaul. It could have more, as it appears that Ford is planning to prolong the life of its model. It is expected that the 2025 Ford Expedition will get big changes, but more of a mid-cycle update rather than a total overhaul.
This test vehicle has been seen on the roads and is covered in lots of camouflage. So, we can expect a lot of styling improvements. In addition, areas that are part of the insides are covered, which is a clear indication of changes. In addition, we don’t rule out the possibility of seeing new options for powertrains. We believe for 2025 that the Ford Expedition will hit the market by the second quarter of 2024.
2025 Ford Expedition Design
As stated it will be more of an update rather than a complete overhaul. The current version has been in existence since the year 2018 and was changed once, so it will become the third facelift. The test mule for the new model has already been found and is sporting lots of camouflage. As we can see the overall design appears similar, however, this new version is expected to add some interesting features to the front. We can expect to see two new headlights as well as a new grille, bumper, and brand new hood. The rear of the car has new taillights and a tailgate, despite the camouflage.
However, we believe that the mechanical component of the vehicle will not change too much. The current model has an impressively advanced set-up, with a rear suspension that is independent and has decent ride quality. It also provides good off-road performance, with its Timberline model, which comes with the two-speed transfer case with a limited-slip differential, suspension, and all-terrain tires We aren’t surprised if this company launches something even more powerful following this upgrade.
Interior updates are anticipated too. The test vehicle has an interior cover too which suggests that changes are planned. It could be a brand new dashboard design, along with new materials, and overall improvements regarding build quality. However, the current model has a plethora of technological features, including the available 15.5-inch informationtainment display. Therefore, it’s difficult to anticipate any significant changes on this front.
Of course, the cabin’s overall layout is expected to stay the same. Three large rows of seats as well as a cargo area will be available with no changes. This includes the expanded Expedition Max, which offers an additional amount of space interior. It’s important to note that some of the top competitors like the Chevy Suburban as well as the GMC Yukon are even more spacious.
In terms of what powertrain is used, we believe that 2025’s Ford Expedition will carry on with the popular 3.5-liter turbo V6. Depending on the trim the vehicle will have different maximum outputs starting from the 380-hp base model. Most models can be expected to produce around 400 horsepower, whereas the top models can be rated for up to 440 horses. This will allow you to reach 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. We won’t be able to rule out some upgrades to the powertrain in the coming year.
On the other hand, innovations could be through electrification. There are rumors of hybrid versions, derived from the F-150 as well as also read about an all-electric version. The latter one is interesting and we think we’ll have the same specs on the F-150 Lightning. This all-electric pickup is offered in two versions, offering 580 and 452 horsepower. Additionally, there are two battery packs available. The base models come with the 98-kWh battery that provides the capacity of 230 miles and the larger 130-kWh pack can provide the possibility of 320 miles of range on just one charge.
For the plug-in hybrids, we anticipate seeing similar technology to the most well-known pickup in the world which is based on the 3.5-liter turbo V6 engine that is available together with an electric motor of 35 kW. The total power goes up to 400 horsepower.
2025 Ford Expedition Release Date and Price
With all the changes coming, we can expect to have the 2025 Ford Expedition a little bit ahead of the norm, but it will still be in the second half of 2024. In terms of cost, it’s currently at 56.000 dollars, while it’s expected that the model to come will likely become a little more costly. Of course, the competition stays similar, in the shape of models such as Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, Jeep Wagoneer etc.
