A silhouette that recalls in part to the Navigator concept 2016.
The prototype that appears completely hidden behind the heavy camouflage is not another that the generational relay of the Ford Expedition, a model which up to now had not been able to be seen with its body short, as above, all the prototypes hunted had a costume assembled from panels of the bodywork above. On this occasion, despite the thick camouflage, we can already appreciate at least the volume and the silhouette is definitive of the new Expedition model by 2018.
Although this new generation of the Expedition we hope to acquire a few distinct traits with the Lincoln Navigator, model twin to the Expedition, located in the luxury segment, the prototype camouflaged images seems to confirm, and to advance the new generation of the model Lincoln. Because in the rear area we can begin to grasp the huge side windows that remind us of the Lincoln Navigator concept that was presented this year in the Hall of New York, with a stunning side doors in the form of gull wings.
In regards to this version 2018 of the Expedition, we hope that will be manufactured mostly in aluminum, as already done by the brand with the new generation of the F150, pick-up most sold in the north american market.
This new generation will have a lot of aluminum to save weight.
The technical innovations do not end here, because in the section of propellant you will find an updated version of the current V6 3.5-liter Ecoboost, the block that we also find in LIncoln Navigator today and that replaced the traditional V8. There are also rumors that suggest a new version of 2.7 litres for the V6 supercharged, that would serve as the version of access to the range.
Regardless of the arrival of this new powertrain or not, the new Ford Expedition will have Start/Stop system, and you have a new automatic gearbox with 10 relations. But the greatest novelty will be the premiere of a hybrid version on the version V6 3.5 liters, which would come shortly after the presentation of the model
This new generation, and we have the same language
design already seen in the range F150, it will be , presented in the next month of
January 2017, during the Detroit Auto show 2017, and its
manufacturing is not would begin until July of that same year, on the ground of
