Want to get a better idea of how this vehicle can improve your drives around Long Beach, Anaheim, and Cerritos? Norm Reeves Ford Superstore is here with your sneak peek of the all-new 2018 Ford Expedition.
Ford Expedition Design
Like all the other vehicles in the Ford lineup, the Expedition comes with a sleek and stylish exterior design that’s both luxurious and rugged. However, the most prominent exterior change with this SUV is its upgraded body. The 2018 Ford Expedition now has a longer wheelbase, but is still about 300 pounds lighter than the previous model. This makes it roomier on the inside and more aerodynamic in terms of performance.
In addition to more space, the interior of the Expedition is also incredibly versatile and flexible. With up to 172 ft3 of passenger volume, the SUV can fit up to eight people comfortably. And if you need to bring a bunch of cargo with you, the Expedition has a maximum of 104.6 ft3 of cargo capacity, so you won’t have any trouble fitting whatever you need inside.
All-New Smart Technologies
The 2018 Ford Expedition has more than 40 advanced features to make your experience behind the wheel as easy and enjoyable as possible.
One of the innovative tech features in this car is SYNC® 3 with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. This system allows you to pull up a variety of helpful features, like navigation. Plus, it can integrate your smartphone into the system for calling and text messaging capabilities and mobile apps.
The Ford Expedition also has a dual-headrest rear seat entertainment system that’ll keep your passengers in the back from getting bored on those long road trips. Working with Sling Media, it lets them watch videos and even home cable programming on either of the two screens.
Other innovative technologies in the Ford Expedition include:
- Wi-Fi hotspot for up to ten devices
- 12-speaker B&O PLAY premium audio system

Ford Expedition Performance
Performance of the 2018 Ford Expedition is impressive. Its 3.5L EcoBoost® engine produces 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. For more power, consider the Platinum trim. It uses the same engine but can generate 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque.
