Any word on the 2014 Expedition?

Given we're in the middle of May, I would think we'd have a fair idea of the new model. Thanks

We don't have any 100% concrete information yet. However, all the hints from Ford engineers/marketing folks seem to point to the Navigator getting the Ecoboost and the Expedition getting the 5.0L. Both trucks might get the 3.7L V6 as a base/fleet level option.

Other than that, we know it's still supposed to be truck based (F150 chassis) and it will likely loose some weight thanks to the use of more aluminum and high-strength steel.

Yes, I've followed all of those threads. I have a hard time believing that Ford would revert to a solid axle after all these years. It seams that we would have more solid rumors or answers at this late date. Someone knows. When is the 2014 Job 1, August? Just a couple months away. thanks

Post Any word on the 2014 Expedition

I keep this thread updated: FYI - 2015 Ford Expedition to get 5.0 liter 32-valve Ti-VCT V-8 - Ford Expedition Forum

Ford confirmed the Expedition would get the 5.0 liter V-8. Matt VanDyke (global director at Ford) also said the Navigator would be avalible with EcoBoost engines.

The next Expedition will arrive sometime later in 2014 for the 2015 model year (if development is not delayed). If pushed back it may not be released until 2015 for the 2016 model year.

A powertrain test mule was spotted back in March (see below):


The test mule has a modified air intake with parts of the Expedition's grille to feed and cool the air hungry engine (a EcoBoost V-6) and turbo boost gauges are tacked onto the interior A-pillar. The yellow sticker up top of the windshield is a identification sticker for that test mule (there is more than one mule).

A revised four-wheel independent suspension system, 5.0 liter 32-vavle Ti-VCT Coyote V-8, 10-speed automatic transmission, dual rear inflatable safety belt airbags, and lighter weight are some improvements in store.

No ****, the only change I see over my 2013 is the mechanical load-leveling system. Not sure I ever end heard my air actuated system running.

2014 will be the last model year for the current Expedition (known internally at Ford as the U324) and Expedition EL/Max (U354).

So for those of you who really liked the U324 (which was a good vehicle, even if dated) and have put off buying one, I suggest you go ahead and order your U324 or see a Ford dealer to select a U324 off their lot.

A concept rendering of the next Expedition - some styling will follow the Ford Atlas concept.

Given the development stage of the redesign – around Fall 2014 or possibly Spring 2015.

Stages:

Preliminary design | design & mule testing | prototype testing | pre-production testing | production (finished product you can see and buy at dealership lots)

The next Expedition is at the "mule testing" stage (at the time of this writing). The new Expedition will be all-new, a complete vehicle redesign, which takes time.

I drive a 2012 Ford F150 XLT SuperCrew, coming from a 2007 Expy XLT. I want back into the full sized SUV, but I look at the 2013 Expy interior and look at my truck and say no way to Ford. I am hopeful that they get to 25 MPG highway when I am ready to move my truck in 2-3 years.

Seriously Ford, your Full sized SUV cannot have an interior worse than your truck, it can't. Now I am looking at what GM is doing to their Tahoe/Yukons. If you don't put an Ecoboost in the Expy, I am afraid you'll break my Ford buying pattern.
