The 2018 Ford Expedition has been spied undergoing testing alongside the current model.

Drawing inspiration from the F-150, the 2018 Expedition has a bold front fascia with a massive grille that is flanked by familiar headlights.  Moving further back, we can see a sculpted hood, rounded fender flares, and F-150 inspired front doors.  The model also has a relatively flat roof and kinked rear windows.  As before, there will be short- and long-wheelbase variants with the latter likely adopting the Expedition EL moniker.


The single interior photo suggests the cabin will also be heavily influenced by F-150.  While there isn't much to see, the model will have large air vents, metallic accents, and a prominent center stack with an SYNC 3 infotainment system.

Engine options remain unconfirmed but the model is expected to feature a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that produces 365 bhp (272 kW) and 420 lb-ft (568 Nm) of torque.  There have also been rumors about an entry-level variant with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 - that develops 325 bhp (242 kW) and 375 lb-ft (507 Nm) of torque - but that's merely speculation at this point.

Little else is known about the 2018 Expedition but it is expected to have a lightweight aluminum body and a ten-speed automatic transmission.
