With the following release of Mustangs and F-150 in 2015, Ford is ready with their face lift Expedition trims which brings many types of ammunition through the lineup but minor changes at all. About the fuel economy and efficient gasoline, we have no question for them because of EcoBoost version in Expedition’s engine. This largest SUV will get the buyers attention with other side of a SUV which looked sportier and powerful nowadays. Ford is not influenced by this market demands. In other hand, they offer us big capacity vehicle with good fuel economy which will be discussed in this 2015 Ford Expedition review.
We start our 2015 Ford Expedition review today at the most significant change firstly. Instead of all, Expedition engine gets more power with a twin-turbocharged with 3.5-Liter direct-injected EcoBoost V6 engine. Likely, Ford has tired with their V8 engine on previous model of Expedition. This engine pumps out 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. If we compare this power with last year model which available with 5.4-liter V8 engine, it increases at 55 horsepower and 55 pound-feet of torque. Of course it comes with lower rpm at 2500. The downshift problems will be disappeared because of the only six-speed automatic transmission. The reducing consumption of gasoline is easily to get because of this system and formula. It was proven by the EPA ratings which increase up 2 mpg than last year. This car has 15 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway right now.
Same Towing Power with V8 engine
The biggest expectation of this 2015 Ford Expedition review is how much the towing capacity of this twin turbo engine. Ford claimed that this car is able to tow 9,200 pounds. Wow! However, Ford has not been registered yet on the SAE tow standards which already done by its competitors such as Chevy and Toyota. Thus, we have no concrete data about what were said by Ford in this case.
Independent rear suspension
Other thing that becomes changes in our 2015 Ford Expedition review is about its independent rear suspension. It makes something different on the United States market. Meanwhile, their rivals keep their rear with wheels and give negative impact like extra weight and fuel cost. Therefore, this lineup has good fuel economy and extra-cargo on the back instead of sporty SUVs that implement by those manufactures these days.
