The full-sized SUV is a dwindling breed, especially as automakers turn their focus to more compact options. That said, Ford is keeping the full-sized dream alive, with vehicles like the all-new 2020 Ford Expedition, and our team at Van Horn Ford of Oconomowoc is thrilled to see the beloved classic continue to make an appearance in the Ford family lineup.
The 2020 Ford Expedition is a beast. With three rows of seating and a max cargo capacity of 104.6 cubic feet in standard models, there is a lot of weight to this full-sized Ford SUV. This is the reason why engine power is such a big deal for Ford car manufacturers. Basic models of the Ford Expedition get a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 that is saddled with a 10-speed automatic transmission. These two components combined make for an astounding 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft worth of torque. And that’s just the starting engine. Should you want a bit more oomph with your SUV, you can find it in the Ford Expedition Platinum which bumps up the twin-turbo V6 to offer 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft worth of torque.
All of that power comes with some serious tech packed beneath the chassis as well. Base models of the Ford Expedition receive a set of power-folding third-row seats, as well as an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen that is integrated with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. And for the first time, the base model of the 2020 Ford Expedition comes with a package of active safety features which includes forward-collision warnings and automatic emergency braking as standard.
The 2020 Ford Expedition calls back to a time when SUVs were large and in charge. While we do enjoy the compact SUVs that crowd our Hartford Ford dealership, our team at Van Horn Ford Oconomowoc also appreciate the return to form that the Ford Expedition represents.
