If we consider the 2022 refresh, as well as the fact that the previous iteration of Ford’s full-size SUV was characterized by pretty long production cycles, it becomes pretty indicative that the current generation, which has been around since 2018, still has a couple of good years before it receives a full redesign. Therefore, we don’t believe that the 2024 Ford Expedition will continue in the same way, without bigger changes. Still, we won’t exclude the possibility to see a couple of minor updates, such as new color options, or maybe even a new appearance package.
In any case, the next year’s model will continue with a familiar layout, to deliver familiar pros and cons. There are many things to like about this SUV, starting from the spacious cabin, capable powertrain options, good towing capacity and more.
Since there should be no bigger updates, we presume that the launch date will be scheduled for the last quarter of the year.
2024 Ford Expedition Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2024 Ford Expedition should be a typical carryover model. Therefore, we expect to see a familiar design, which has been updated for the 2022 model year, with new aesthetics. The new front end looks very nice, so there’s no doubt the current model will remain fresh for a few more years. The mechanical aspect should also remain untouched. The Expedition isn’t particularly engaging to drive but on the other hand, it is smooth and comfortable. The Platinum trim comes with adaptive suspension and offers an even smoother ride.
The last year’s update also brought the Timberline trim, which is the most capable off-roader in the lineup. This version should also continue in the same way, with familiar off-road upgrades, such as off-road shocks, 32-inch all-terrain tires, an electronic limited-slip differential, a two-speed transfer case, skid plates etc.
The same thing is with the interior design, which received a lot of new tech features with the 2022 update. Therefore, the 2024 Ford Expedition shouldn’t look much different. The dashboard looks bold and rugged and clearly indicates Expedition’s truck DNA. However, the materials are fine and the build quality is good, while the higher trim levels even look pretty luxurious with leather and other premium materials.
Still, the Expedition’s main strength is passenger space, which is very generous. All three rows are pretty impressive in terms of leg and headroom and accommodate adult passengers with ease. Therefore, it can easily fit 8 people pretty easily.
The cargo area offers around 20.9 cubic feet of space behind the third row, up to 63.6 cubic feet behind the second row and 104.6 cubes with all the rear seats folded down. If you need more space, there is the long-wheelbase Expedition Max, which increases cargo capacity to 36 cubic feet of room behind the third row, up to 79.6 cubic feet behind the second row and 121.5 cubic feet of the total volume.
Of course, some things could be added to the list of standard equipment but even if these changes happen, they will be minimal. The 2024 Ford Expedition should continue mostly in the same way. So, base versions should come equipped with goodies like a 12-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a six-speaker stereo, four USB ports, voice recognition, an 8-inch digital instrument cluster display, tri-zone automatic climate control and a universal garage door opener.
Among upgrades, expect to find goodies like a 15.5-inch touch screen, a 12- or 22-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo, satellite radio, a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system, two third-row USB ports, navigation, wireless device charging, HD Radio, 12.4-inch fully digital instrument cluster, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, proximity keyless entry, a panoramic roof, a household-style power outlet, remote start and ambient interior lighting.
2024 Ford Expedition Engines
This aspect definitely won’t bring bigger changes. So, you may count on a capable 3.5-liter turbocharged V6, which comes in three output versions. Depending on the trim level, the max output goes from 380, to 400, to 440 horsepower. All three units deliver plenty of torque and feel more than capable. The driving dynamics are very good, while the 10-speed automatic transmission delivers quick, on-time and smooth shifts.
Besides good driving dynamics, you may also count on pretty good fuel economy, which goes up to 19 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, which is very good for a full-size SUV. A properly equipped Expedition features a max towing capacity of 9.300 pounds, which is pretty good too. However, rivals like Toyota Sequoia and Jeep Wagoneer can tow even more.
2024 Ford Expedition Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Ford Expedition will arrive sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a starting price of around 54.000 dollars.
