With diesel and hybrid variants from next season, the 2019 Ford Expedition will cement its place as a leader in the full-size segment. Yes, Toyota Sequoia, Nissan Armada, and Chevy Suburban are also there. But, since the Expedition is going into a new generation, we doubt any of these can compete it successfully.
We have also heard that Chevrolet will offer diesel and hybrid variant of the upcoming 2019 Suburban.
Not only engineers are preparing changes. Designers are very busy as well. The 2019 Ford Expedition will keep existing trim levels, but various upgrades will make it pretty different. Whatsoever, the crossover will keep its familiar look.
2019 Ford Expedition Offers Diesel Engine
After Ford F-150, the full-size crossover could be the next vehicle to get a diesel engine. The same unit truck is using is the favorite to find the space in the engine room of 2019 Ford Expedition. It is a 3.0-liter PowerStroke turbodiesel drivetrain with 250 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. Here, Ford can pair a new 10-speed transmission and the engine to provide a smooth ride.
Once again, we will mention the legendary truck. The 2019 Ford Expedition and pickup are sharing the petrol unit. It is a 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost mill which can make 375 hp thanks to the turbocharger. Towing capacity of 9,300 pounds is among the bests in the class. On the other hand, the best fuel economy rating we will find in 4×2 petrol model, with 24 mpg for a highway drive.
2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid
Sure, why not? Being big is not limiting the 2019 Ford Expedition be more fuel friendly. Well, the company could sacrifice turbocharger and over 100 hp to achieve better gas mileage. It is not the first time we are mentioning F-150 truck. A hybrid version of this vehicle is almost certain. So, since the Ford Expedition is its sibling in SUV class, it could borrow the plug-in system. Furthermore, if that happens, Expedition can become the first three-row crossover with such drivetrain.
2019 Ford Expedition Trim Levels
The 2019 Ford Expedition is not going to spread its offer with many equipment levels. For next season, the company will keep XLT as the base model and heavily-packed Platinum trim. Finally, the Limited edition is not sure, and it can arrive later.
If you are a fan of the full-size SUVs then you will adore new Ford Expedition Baja-Forged Adventurer model.
