2015 Ford Expedition Goes Platinum With EcoBoost and More

By -


With the modernization of its bed-brother, the 2015 F-150, the 2015 Expedition hasn’t been given much of a limelight lately. However, just because it’s not in the news doesn’t mean that changes are coming down the road for the SUV.

Ford will be introducing the EcoBoost engine into the Expedition’s lineup that will continue to improve every luxurious big body SUV in Ford’s line.


Just like the 2015 Ford F-150, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with SelectShift six-speed auto will fill the engine bay and transmission tunnel of the 2015 Ford Expedition.

This doesn’t mean a decrease in performance as it will bring 420 lb-ft of torque to the game and towing capability up to 9,200-lbs.

That capability comes without the cost of additional NVH thanks to improved body seals, sound dampening materials in cabin pillars and center console, and acoustic glass will be used in all trims.


Ford will also have SYNC with MyFord Touch along with driver-assist features like radar-based Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert.

To bring that touch capability to the Expedition, an 8-inch touch screen and a new driver information system in the gauge cluster on two 4.2-inch screens.

Finally, Platinum trim will be available on the Expedition for the first time since it was introduced to the F-150. It will include Brunello leather-appointed seats in a new Red Wine color with tuxedo-stripe accents and French-seamed stitching.

If that’s a bit too much red, there are also the Ebony leather-appointed seats with Agate Gray accents instead. This is combined with 22-inch polished aluminum wheels, revised rear hatch, and a subtle but chrome-tipped exhaust. Look for more as it launches later this year.
