Стоит отметить, что внедорожник стал намного тяжелее, теперь базовая масса автомобиля составляет 2500 килограмм. Дизайнеры американского концерна тоже потрудились на славу, и теперь внедорожник предстал во всей красе перед зрителями автосалона в Детройте, в чем можно убедиться, посмотрев фото Ford Expedition 2017, приведенные в статье.

CARS.COM — Big SUVs used to be all the rage — just as minivans replaced the family station wagon in the 1980s, so too did big SUVs do the same to those vans in the 1990s. But since then, the Great Recession and gas price shocks have returned big SUVs to their original place in the market — expensive specialty vehicles bought by people for whom only a big, multi-passenger vehicle that can tow significant amounts will do.

The segment leader is the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, and it wasn’t hard to figure out why — the main competitor, the Ford Expedition, hadn’t seen a major update in almost a decade. All that has changed — behold the behemoth, the all-new 2018 Ford Expedition, that’s aiming to knock the Chevy off its top truck throne.

Like the old Expedition, the new one maintains a traditional truck-style body-on-frame construction.

CARS.COM — Big SUVs used to be all the rage — just as minivans replaced the family station wagon in the 1980s, so too did big SUVs do the same to those vans in the 1990s. But since then, the Great Recession and gas price shocks have returned big SUVs to their original place in the market — expensive specialty vehicles bought by people for whom only a big, multi-passenger vehicle that can tow significant amounts will do.

The segment leader is the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, and it wasn’t hard to figure out why — the main competitor, the Ford Expedition, hadn’t seen a major update in almost a decade. All that has changed — behold the behemoth, the all-new 2018 Ford Expedition, that’s aiming to knock the Chevy off its top truck throne.

Old-School Truck, New-School Materials

Like the old Expedition, the new one maintains a traditional truck-style body-on-frame construction. Underneath, the Expedition is an F-150 with an independent rear suspension instead of a solid live axle. This arrangement also allows for a lower loading floor in the cargo area that enables the third row to fold away completely — an advantage over the Chevy Tahoe’s style of seats.

Like the F-150, the body is now aluminum, but the weight difference isn’t that significant — Ford has added all kinds of equipment and sound insulation that offsets some of that aluminum construction benefit. The body looks slick, with a new and thoroughly modern appearance that is much more in keeping with the modern style of truck — high beltline, smaller windows and a chunkier style. It’s fresh, attractive and has a distinctly more aerodynamic look than the outgoing model.

Like the old Expedition, the new one is available in two lengths: Expedition and Expedition Max. The extra room doesn’t do anything for passenger space but does increase the available cargo area behind the third row, so you’re not forced to choose between those extra rear passengers and extra luggage capacity.

Old-Style Power, New-Style Engine

Powering the new Expedition is Ford’s ubiquitous twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. It’s a carryover engine from the last Expedition, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to not see a V-8 under the hood. It puts out a healthy 375 horsepower in most trim levels and 400 hp in the top Platinum trim. New to the setup is a standard 10-speed automatic transmission, available to either a rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configuration, and an electronic limited slip differential.

Fire up the V-6, and it sounds for all the world like a well-tuned turbo-diesel. Some of the engine’s noise is artificially generated (all that soundproofing would prevent you from hearing the engine, otherwise), but the sound that does come through is a fun mix of turbos whooshing and raspy exhaust. It sounds sufficiently butch for the truck it sits in.

I found driving it to be quite a pleasant surprise, as well — it more than adequately powers the Expedition in either regular-wheelbase or Max versions, and gets even more punchy when you twist the rotary drive mode selector into Sport. Climbing the canyons above Malibu, Calif., handling the tight, twisting sweepers, descending into quick switchbacks — the Expedition exuded confidence and stability. Sport mode tightens up the steering feedback, and changes both the throttle mapping and transmission shift points, making those twisties even easier to take. Nobody will confuse the Expedition for a Mustang, but it by no means embarrasses itself on high-speed, challenging roads.

Ride quality is also outstanding. Wheel sizes vary from 18- to 22-inch models depending on trim level and equipment. Higher-spec trims get an electronically adjustable suspension, but even lesser models’ suspensions provide a smooth, well-controlled ride. There are no crazy tippy body motions — it’s clear the Ford ride and handling engineers have done their homework. If you need an off-road rig, Ford’s got you covered here too: An FX4 package is available that brings underbody protection, a two-speed low-range transfer case, special tuning for the electronic limited-slip differential, Michelin Primacy tires on smaller wheels, off-road shocks, a heavy-duty radiator and unique badging.

The Expedition also tows like a champ. Hooked up to a 5,500-pound horse trailer, the Expedition Max I drove chugged up 6 percent inclines with ease, able to accelerate despite the load it was hauling. The 10-speed automatic is well-matched to this engine, holding gears on downhill grades that saved the Expedition’s brakes and maintained easy control. Trailer sway control comes with the heavy-duty towing package, as does Ford’s super-nifty Pro Trailer Backup Assist feature, which allows you to back a trailer up using a special control wheel on the dash and the backup cameras. It takes the guesswork and trial and error out of backing up a trailer, making even the newest novice look like a veteran trucker.

Better Inside, But Details Are Important

The interior looks as if it could have been lifted directly from the F-150, with all the pros and cons that entails. It’s spacious, with excellent outward visibility, but the front seats remain oddly short and become unsupportive over longer voyages. The backseats are high with plenty of room, and fore-and-aft sliding ability allows the two rear rows of passengers to negotiate legroom among themselves. The third row is actually usable for adults even when the second row is adjusted all the way rearward; put it forward a bit, and there really isn’t a bad seat in the house. The second row also tilts and slides forward at the touch of an electronic button, making ingress to the third row easier.

Material quality in the cabin is mixed, however. The F-150 isn’t known for having the best environment in the segment; it features plenty of hard plastic and seams between parts that simply don’t look like they flow together well. Some of this, like plastic mold flashing on the grab handles, can be chalked up to early build quality (our test units were some very early examples), but some of it is simply how it’s designed — it’s a pickup truck at heart that’s been given a healthy makeover, but it’s still a pickup truck in the ways that count. For a vehicle that can easily approach $90,000 in fully loaded Platinum trim or even top $70,000 in a well-equipped Limited model, this kind of detail becomes important. All the fancy quilted leather in the world doesn’t excuse the fact that other parts look cheap.

The Latest Tech

Thankfully, Ford loads you up with tech goodies for that kind of coin. The new platform means that a fully updated electronic architecture is present, chock full of gadgets that entertain (you can stream live TV to the entertainment system via Slingplayer and Sync 3, or even hook up a big screen TV for tailgating), some that keep you safe (all kinds of lane-keeping aids, steering aids, anti-collision aids, autonomous braking systems), and some that help you drive (like the aforementioned trailer backup assist). The high-end audio system is the new B&O Play brand, and it sounds fantastic. The entire experience in the Expedition is one of a significant upgrade, easily on par with the Chevy and GMC models, and surpassing them in flexibility, spaciousness, and amenities.

All This Utility Does Not Come Cheap

If you haven’t priced out a full-sized SUV in a while, you’d better be sitting down for this next part. The starting price for an Expedition XL 4×2 is $49,290 including destination and delivery, but you’ll never see one of those on a dealer lot — those are meant for fleet sales to utilities or city governments. Far more likely is the XLT trim, which starts at $52,890 in 4×2 trim. Specifying four-wheel drive adds between $3,100 and $3,200 to the price depending on trim level. Add in everything you can get, and you’re looking at an Expedition Max Platinum 4×4 that will stop short of 90 grand. For comparison’s sake, the new 2018 Lincoln Navigator starts around $73,000, and can top out around $100,000.

Still, this is easily competitive with vehicles like the Chevy Tahoe, Suburban and GMC Yukon. With buyers snapping up big SUVs in increasing numbers, Ford’s update to its big truck comes at the perfect time. That the truck is as good as it is should put Chevy on notice.

Оснащение и технические характеристики

Автомобиль представлен с безальтернативным турбированным двигателем объемом 3,5 литра, который применяется для данной модели с 2014 года. Точная отдача двигателя пока неизвестна, но вероятно она будет увеличена по сравнению с предыдущим поколением, для которого данный показатель составляет 370 л.с.

Шестиступенчатая автоматическая трансмиссия заменена на десятиступенчатую, имеющую возможность ручного переключения передач. Аналогичная коробка передач уже устанавливается в новых поколениях Форд Мустанг и Ф-150. Управление трансмиссией осуществляется при помощи компактного селектора, пришедшего на смену привычному рычагу.
Автомобиль будет доступен покупателю с задним либо полным приводом. Для новинки предусмотрено 7 различных режимов вождения, зависящих от вида дорожного покрытия. Автомобиль оборудован огромным количеством разнообразных систем комфорта и безопасности.

В качестве дополнительных опций можно получить панорамную крышу с люком, управляемым электроприводом, беспроводное зарядное устройство для мобильных гаджетов, ассистент парковки, дисплеи в подголовниках первого ряда сидений и т.д.


В движение Ford Expedition 2017 приводится посредством 3,5-литрового бензинового двигателя V6 EcoBoost, мощность которого составляет 375 л.с. В базе внедорожник имеет задний привод, однако по желанию, можно заказать и полноприводную версию.

Стоит обратить внимание потенциальных покупателей на рекламную компанию от производителя – по убеждению разработчиков, рамный внедорожник является лучшим среди своих конкурентом (негласно конкурентами считаются Chevrolet Tahoe и Suburban).

Благодаря своим характеристикам, он является просто идеальным автомобилем для дальних поездок. К слову, нельзя не отметить, что разработчики не постарались – в салоне внедорожника доступно пятнадцать подстаканников, 6 портов USB для зарядки гаджетов, пять розеток – одна 12 V и четыре – 110 V.

Более того, к внедорожнику без труда можно прицепить фургон, вес которого достигает четырех тонн, что может пригодиться путешественникам.

The 2017 Expedition is Ford’s largest SUV, a 3-row sport-utility vehicle that excels at carrying large families and towing heavy loads. The Expedition can seat eight and tow up to 9,200 pounds thanks to its powerful twin-turbo V6 engine. The Ford’s towing figure bests its main rival the Chevrolet Tahoe, not to mention other full-size SUVs like the Toyota Sequoia and Nissan Armada. The Expedition’s capability is granted thanks to a sturdy, body-on-frame chassis. The flip side of such a setup is a stiffer, truck-like ride, and the Expedition’s large size makes it a handful to park and maneuver in general. For those requiring even more cargo space behind the third row, a longer version is offered in the Expedition EL.

A couple of years ago the Ford Expedition bucked its large and thirsty V8 engine, and became a better vehicle for it. Though it has two less cylinders than the Chevy Tahoe, the Ford’s engine is more powerful thanks to its twin turbocharging. As big as the Expedition is, this relatively small (3.5-liter) powerplant easily gets Ford’s full-size SUV up to speed. Handling is far from nimble — remember this is a big, truck-based utility vehicle — but the available electronically controlled shock absorbers do help smooth the ride and give the driver the flexibility of three different driving modes: Comfort, Normal and Sport. Given the largesse of the Expedition — and especially the even longer Expedition EL — we recommend the available blind-spot monitoring system. Unlike the Tahoe, the Expedition lacks active safety and driving aids like lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking and active cruise control.

The days of the giant, fuel-thirsty V8 are numbered; at least, they are over at Ford. The Expedition’s 3.5-liter V6 puts out more power and torque than the previous 5.4-liter V8, yet maintains the same towing capacity and delivers better fuel economy.

The latest edition of Ford’s touch-based information/entertainment system has rectified past wrongs that included too-small type and lagging response time. For 2017 it further improves with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility.

All 2017 Ford Expeditions have three rows of seats and can accommodate up to eight passengers. Optional bucket seats in the second row in lieu of the standard 3-person bench reduce capacity to seven. Both the standard Expedition and the extended-length EL have the same amount of legroom for passengers, including an adult-friendly 37.7 inches for those in the third row. The big difference — literally — is cargo capacity behind the third row. In standard models there’s 18.6 cubic feet. EL models boast a whopping 42.6. Fold the second and third rows, and those numbers grow to 108.3 and 130.8, respectively.

For 2017 the Ford Expedition retains its classic, boxy shape that puts an emphasis on cargo capacity and utility. You won’t find much to swoon over here in the style department, but that’s not the point. What you’ll find is a big, brawny, slab-sided SUV with a stately but not over-the-top grille and large windows. The extended-length Ford Expedition EL supersizes matters. Where the standard Expedition models are already long at 206 inches in length, the EL variants come in at 220.8 inches. If you plan to park either in your garage, measure first.

The 2017 Ford Expedition comes in four trims: base XLT, Limited, King Ranch and the range-topping Platinum. Spend the least on a 2017 Expedition XLT and you’ll get 6-way-power driver’s seat, power-adjustable pedals, leather-wrapped steering wheel, rearview camera and rear parking sensor, and 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio with Bluetooth wireless connectivity and USB port. We find a solid value in the Limited model, which adds leather interior, dual-zone climate control, heated/cooled front seats, power liftgate, the Sync 3 system, driver’s seat memory and power-folding 3rd-row seats. The King Ranch adds more leather, blind-spot monitoring, navigation system, power-deployable running boards and exterior chrome accents.

The range-topping Expedition Platinum is a luxury liner loaded with amenities like micro-perforated leather seats, power moonroof, leather-and-wood console, stainless-steel running boards, and 22-inch wheels. All models can be had with 4-wheel drive instead of the standard rear 2-wheel-drive (2WD) layout. Optional on base XLT models and standard on the rest is a tow package that increases towing capacity from 6,600 pounds to 9,200. Other options vary by trim and include navigation, moonroof, 2nd-row bucket seats and Sony premium audio system.

A twin-turbo V6 is the only engine available in the 2017 Expedition, so if you’re the type who must have a big V8 under the hood, say hello to the competition. But if cylinder count is just a number — and these days it’s just that — know that this 3.5-liter 6-cylinder is impressive. Another positive is that this engine runs just fine on regular unleaded, something not all turbos are known for. The engine remains connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission, and 4WD with a low-speed transfer case is available on all trims of the 2017 Expedition in lieu of the standard rear-drive setup.

3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6
365 horsepower @ 5,000 rpm
420 lb-ft of torque @ 2,250 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 15/21 mpg (2WD), 15/20 mpg (2WD, EL model), 15/20 mpg (4WD), 15/19 mpg (4WD, EL model)

Note: Due to changes in EPA testing to more effectively reflect real-world conditions, some 2017 models show slightly lower fuel-economy scores than their 2016 versions.

Отзыв владельца

Форд Экспедишн очень востребован не только среди гражданских лиц, но и у всевозможных спецслужб, полиции, пожарной охраны и медицинской помощи. При этом его основной целевой аудиторией является средний класс – семейные люди с высоким годовым достатком.

Некоторое время назад я был обладателем городского кроссовера. Однако пополнение в семействе заставило с ним распрощаться. В качестве альтернативы SUV рассматривал преимущественно минивэны, хотя душа к ним не лежала никогда.

И вот однажды мое внимание привлек Ford Expedition. Автомобиль покорил меня своим брутальным дизайном, просторным салоном и мощным мотором, поэтому вопрос об его приобретении долго не обсуждался.

В настоящее время пробег на одометре насчитывает 20 тысяч километров. За это время я очень сильно привык к этому автомобилю – в основном, он только радует, и даже его существенные габариты не являются для меня серьезной проблемой.

Мне очень нравится уютный салон, который изобилует функционалом. Современный мультимедийный комплекс способен воспроизводить множество видео- и аудиоформатов, к тому же обладает большим монитором с качественной графикой.

В поездках выручает тяговитый мотор и умная подвеска. Более того, при путешествиях задние пассажиры могут насладиться просторными креслами и собственным мультимедийным блоком.

Особых недостатков я не обнаружил, за исключением высокого расхода топлива. В среднем, автомобиль потребляет 20 литров бензина на 100 километров пути, что заставляет часто заезжать на АЗС.

2017 Ford Expedition XLT

2017 Ford Expedition XLT | Cloth upholstery | Back up camera | Heated seats | AM/FM radio and more. Powered by a 3.5L engine paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. A perfect car for a big family! Features include Bluetooth, back up camera, cruise control, heated seats, AM.

$1,309 Above Market

2017 Ford Expedition EL

The 2017 Ford Expedition EL has plenty of strengths, at the pinnacle of which is its incredibly spacious cabin. All three rows deliver adult-friendly head- and legroom, making the Expedition EL the ultimate pick for big families and social crews. The cabin is also big on style, with handsome wood grain trim and high-quality materials. The extended-length model provides best-in-class cargo space, with 46.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats for all your weekend luggage and shopping bags. To haul larger items, flip the second and third rows down to create 130.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space.

In addition to upscale comfort, the 2017 Ford Expedition EL supplies world-class tech features. With its sharp graphics and intuitive menus, the Sync 3 touchscreen is easy to use, even if you’ve never handled in-car infotainment before. Use the Sync 3 voice controls to alter settings without looking away from traffic. Smartphone integration features mean you can use the Sync 3 system to send voice-to-text messages and stream your favorite Pandora radio stations. Plug your laptop into the 110-volt, household-style power outlet to keep it charged on the go. Use the remote ignition feature to warm up the engine on a cold morning.

When it comes to safety, the 2017 Ford Expedition EL will put your mind at ease. In government crash tests, it earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. All models come with a rearview camera, making it easy to spot obstacles in your path before they become an issue. Front and rear parking sensors make parallel parking a snap. With the blind-spot monitoring system, the Expedition EL helps you switch lanes safely. Trailer sway control gives you impressive authority over heavy loads. Antilock disc brakes help you make strong, quick stops.

In terms of power, the Expedition EL is truly impressive. Its turbocharged engine supplies the output you need for a smooth, capable performance. Choose between rear- and four-wheel drive, the latter of which maximizes traction in off-road territory. Choose the four-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing for superior performance over rugged terrain. Properly equipped, the Expedition El can tow max loads of 9,200 pounds.

What’s New for 2017?

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone technologies now come with Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system. For the 2017 model year, Ford did not make any other significant changes to the Expedition.

Top 10 Reasons to Buy a 2017 Ford Expedition – The Pros

1) Strong 3.5L EcoBoost Engine

Over the last few years, Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost engine has gained a reputation for its brawny performance. The turbocharged six-cylinder engine pushes out a potent 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. It is actually stronger and more efficient than a traditional V-8 engine. With a 0-60 time of 6.4 seconds, the big SUV proves to be very quick.

2) Reasonable Gas Mileage for Its Size

Although the 2017 Expedition is far from being the most environmentally friendly vehicle on the market, it does return decent fuel economy. You can expect to get an admirable 22 mpg on the highway. This SUV is definitely a good option for taking a long road trip. By comparison, the Toyota Land Cruiser tops out at only 18 mpg.

3) Strong Towing Ability

The 2017 Expedition rivals the towing capabilities of a full-size pickup truck. This is a big advantage for the drivers who need to pull a hefty load on a regular basis. Its maximum towing capacity stands at an impressive 9,200 pounds. While trailer sway control comes standard, you can also opt for a heavy-duty tow package.

4) True 4WD System

A RWD system comes standard on the Ford Expedition. However,some drivers will likely need the available Control Trac 4WD system. When traveling in deep snow or sticky mud, you can take advantage of the 4WD system’s low-range gearing. Although a rugged off-road package is not offered, the 4X4 model can handle a typical dirt trail.

5) Smooth and Stable

When traveling in the 2017 Expedition, everyone will enjoy its comfortable ride. While even the standard suspension performs very well, the optional adaptive suspension takes the SUV’s ride quality to the next level. Drivers can also look forward to experiencing the Expedition’s secure handling. A responsive steering system enables you to easily maneuver the large SUV on the open road.

6) Powerful-Looking SUV

The Ford Expedition looks noticeably tougher than a crossover SUV. A muscular hood and bold grille give it a very truck-like appearance. Stylish LED fog lights now come standard. Featuring a set of 22-inch polished wheels, the Platinum model definitely has a striking appearance. Some of the most eye-catching exterior colors include Race Red, White Platinum, and Bronze Fire.

7) Very Spacious

Some three-row SUVs suffer from having a cramped third-row seat. Fortunately, that is not the case with the Ford Expedition. All of your friends and family members will have plenty of room. An available power-folding rear seat can easily expand the available cargo space. From suitcases to skiing gear, plenty of extra stuff can be stored in the back.

8) High-Tech Components

The 2017 Ford Expedition can be equipped with an impressive list of components. A 360-watt amplifier enables the Sony audio system to offer digital sound quality. Featuring an 8.0-inch touch-screen display, the Sync 3 infotainment interface makes it easy for users to obtain their favorite apps. If you do a lot of traveling, the rear-seat entertainment system is a must for kids.

9) Great Crash Protection

When evaluated by the federal government, the 2017 Ford Expedition was able to obtain a five-star safety rating. Its superior crash protection should appeal to a lot of car shoppers. A rear-view camera and rear parking sensors come standard on every trim. Meanwhile, the optional blind-spot monitor detects oncoming traffic on the highway.

10) Standard MyKey System

Ford’s MyKey system comes standard on the 2017 Ford Expedition. This useful feature allows parents to have more control over their teen drivers. Not only can the MyKey system limit their top speed, but it can also prevent teens for blasting the sound system.

Reasons Not to Buy a 2017 Ford Expedition – The Cons

1) Takes Up Extra Space

If you must travel in a busy city, the large stature of the 2017 Expedition could pose a problem. It will be hard to maneuver the SUV in a tight parking area. A smaller crossover may prove to be a better option for some car shoppers.

2) Interior Could Use an Update

Although the 2017 Ford Expedition has a well-designed interior, some of its competitors have a more modern-looking cabin. In terms of overall luxuriousness, the new Lincoln Navigator is a step above the Expedition.

3) Can Be Pricey
The MSRP for the base 2017 Ford Expedition is $47,400. On the other hand, a fully loaded 2017 Platinum model can easily surge past $63,000. This amount of money may prove to be too much for some people.


Upon taking a look at its competition, the 2017 Ford Expedition is clearly among the segment’s top options. Because of the Expedition’s impressive towing capacity, it stands as a solid alternative to a crew cab truck. The SUV’s reasonable gas mileage should appeal to a lot of long-distance travelers. Everyone will like the Expedition’s muscular EcoBoost engine.
