CR Model Summary
The big news about this big SUV is that the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine replaces the old V8 as part of the 2015 freshening. Ford says that the V6 will return better fuel economy as well as more power and torque than the outgoing 5.4-liter V8. A six-speed automatic is the lone transmission. Both regular- and long-wheelbase versions continue to be available, as well eight-passenger seating. New features include SYNC with MyFord Touch, push-button start, and blind spot monitoring. The new engine provides effortless power but the Expedition shows its age with its spartan interior and it's not as quiet as its Chevrolet Suburban competitor.
