A hefty price increase over the outgoing model.
The new Ford Expedition will arrive in dealerships this fall, and when it does, it will come with a new design, an updated EcoBoost engine, and a price tag just a bit above the outgoing model. The new Expedition XLT will start at $52,890 (including destination), a $4,570 premium from 2017.
According to CarsDirect, via confirmation from Ford, the $52,890 asking price is just the tip of the iceberg as far as trim options are concerned. The Expedition MAX, which replaces the EL model, will start at $55,580. Tack on all-wheel drive and that’s an extra $3,000. The upgraded Limited will start at $63,780, or $66,465 with the MAX option box ticked.
The Expedition Platinum will start at $73,905, while the top-of-the-line MAX Platinum will start at $79,740, a whopping $8,640 more expensive than the outgoing model. The newly introduced FX4 will set you back $63,155, but comes with a range of options to make it more well-suited for off-road use, including new 18-inch wheels and seven functional skid plates. For comparison's sake, take a look at this chart.
