Under the hood of new Expedition should be located the same engine, already known by a number of Ford models. It is a 3,5 liter EcoBoost with the V6 configuration. The second available engine might be another EcoBoost unit, but with a displacement of 2,7 liters. That is all information regarding the engines yet, but later the producer itself will inform about the line of engines.
Actually, as a platform for the Expedition appears the same F-150 with its abundance of aluminum components in a design that will determine a fair reduction in the weight of the new generation frame SUV compared to its predecessor. Aluminium “diet” will help full-size SUV to reduce fuel consumption and meet increasingly stringent CO2 emission requirements.
