The redesigned 2014 Ford Expedition should enter the dealerships very soon with some new engine options. Aside from a minor revamp in 2007, the Expedition has worn the same design for close to a decade. Due to the changing times and the aged design of the current Ford Expedition sales have been poor, while competitors like GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Tahoe are now sales giants. In line with new development aimed at its utility vehicle line-ups, Ford will redesign the Expedition to be more family-friendly and less truck-like for the 2014 model year; Expedition will no longer represent a faded fad.
According to some 2014 ford Expedition rumors we heard, the car will boast of an improved fuel economy. The automaker will design the car to be smaller and lighter without sacrificing performance and luxury. The new model car will also become more upscale so as to attract customers. The vehicle will be offered in 8 trims, which gives enough options to prospective buyers. The SUV will stand out for its reliability and safety features.it will come with safety features such as 911 Assist system and 6-bag system.
Minimal changes were made to the exterior of the 2014 Expedition, but it is freshen to feature a redesigned grille. Although the vehicle was designed for strictly off-road conditions, it will come with luxury features such as a keyless entry system, Ford’s MyKey system, audiophile premium sound system with sub-woofer, MP3 and iPod devices port, air conditioning, heated power mirrors, illuminated visors, rear-view mirror, Sirius XM satellite radio and a leather-wrapped steering. One of its most attractive features is the tri zone automatic climate control, with which you can regulate the temperature (second row and third row passengers will be particularly happy with this feature).
Contrary to some 2014 ford Expedition rumors, there will be some significant changes to the powertrain. The vehicle will be built with more than one engine; it will share a range of engine with its sibling, the F-150. A 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine rated at 365 horsepower will be offered for improved fuel economy, and the 5.0-liter V8 engine currently used by the Mustang could replace the 5.4-liter V8 engine built with the current Ford Expedition. a triton which has a capacity of 5.4 Liter SOHC 24-Valve which has an output of 310 horsepower and maximum torque of 365 lb-ft will be built with Ford Expedition VVT trim. A 6-speed transmission will be the standard transmission system across the trim levels.
The ride quality may not be as great as those of modern crossovers, but the vehicle will still boast of a high level of composure on rough surfaces; its ride quality will be better than most body-on-frame trucks. An all-wheel independent suspension system which increases driving comfort on difficult terrain is expected. Thanks to the highly performing engine, the 2014 Expedition will have a towing capacity of 9.200 pounds. The suspension system and the precise steering will help in controlling the excess weight.
There may be more to the 2014 ford Expedition but we will have to wait till 2013 to get the full detail; Ford has kept the vehicle well under wraps. The pricing information is not available at the moment but there rumors that the car will be priced at $50,000.
