The only remained true SUV in Ford’s offer will come redesigned next year, probably as 2017 Ford Expedition. This is a full-size SUV, the last one that comes in traditional truck-based manner. Rest of the models from “blue oval” company are pretty much just a crossovers. This model came in 1996, as successor of Bronco. So far, we have seen three generations of it. Current, third-generation model is present since 2007. Although it received various updates during these years, it is almost ten years old. So, it is about time to see complete redesign. New model is already in testing phase and it is expected to come next year.
2017 Ford Expedition specs
The 2017 Ford Expedition will come redesigned next year. We still don’t know will it come marked as 2017 or 2018 model. For now, we will call it 2017 Expedition. New generation is already in phase of test drives, and several details about new model are already known. Just like previous models, this one will also come based on company’s most popular vehicle, F-150 pickup truck. Plenty of parts will be shared. With new body, which will come made mostly of aluminum instead of conventional steel, 2017 Ford Expedition will be much lighter. According to some predictions, new model will lose about 300 pounds, maybe even more.
