2019 Nav to have 3.5 v6?

don't think I would pay $80,000 for a Nav with a 3.5 v6, maybe with a 6.2 v8 it might be worth it. Dave

Have you seen the video on Youtube with a 2018 Expy 3.5l V6 stomping a 6.2L GMC Yukon in a drag race?

But if you want a V8, you want a V8. Personally, I prefer orange juice.

Now my dad liked V8, and cranberry juice.

But I am getting off topic.

GMC/Ford race starts at 4:10.

Welp you can miss out on one of the best vehicles on the road because the huge power output comes from a v6 and not a v8

The high performance Ford Raptor pickup also has a high-output 3.5 Ecoboost. No Expedition or Navigator ever had an engine larger than the 5.4 V8 and the 3.5 EB has far more power. Paradigms are changing.

If you want a 6.2 you'll have to go with GM...

$80k is an awful lot for any SUV, and it's no secret that Ford makes a lot of money on these things, the same way GM makes money on its full sized SUV's.

I've been very impressed with the 3.5 ecoboost in my '18 Expedition Limited. No comparison between it and the 5.4, feels like twice the power and much more responsive. Gets better fuel economy, too.

Driving my 2017 F250 6.2L and my wifes 2018 Ecoboost Expedition EL I would much rather have the Ecoboost engine. The 6.2L seems dead compared to the Ecoboost which pulls hard at any speed, it's possible if Ford had a 10 speed trans mated to the 6.2L that would wake the engine up.

We have a 16 and it flies, rented a 18 to try it out in a trip and would smoke our 16. Try it first, I have had 2 6.2's and they don't hold a candle to an ecoboost. Especially the ho version.

I was skeptical at first even though I tried out a E/B 2015 at a Ford Ride and Drive event. I am impressed with the power even with A/C on and light throttle it moves. From a dead stop it will snap you back in the seat. Fast Lane trucks did a review a couple of years ago with driver only driver and one front seat passenger and the third run with driver front passenger and two rear passengers. All slightly above average height/weight adults. This test was a high altitude track in Colorado and three runs all 0-60.

Driver only 8.1 seconds
Driver Front apssenger 8.3 seconds
Driver front passenger and two rear passengers 9.1 seconds.

I am not sure how fuel was outfitted (Full 1/2 etc..) but I was impressed. Even with for adults performance not a major hit.

As foir fuel economy you bought a full size over 7000 lb brick SUV..Obviously not going to win any fuel mileage awards. If you want 40 MPG get a Prius or Focus.

And if you nail the cruise control to 50 on a long run (slow lane on the freeway) it can be quite remarkable in fuel economy.

As someone who has a 2018 Raptor, from a performance perspective, you should not be concerned with the 450 HP EB. It is very aggressive under most circumstances. Long term reliability of the two turbos - TBD. Some folks have issues others do not. Ford has gone to a a direct injection system now that has one injector shower the intake heads to keep them clean, hopefully eliminating the carbon buildup issues.

One of my coworkerís vehicles got hit and they gave him a brand spanking new Navigator with the 3.5EB HO engine. That thing was crazy peppy. He loved it. He was very sad when he had to give it back last week for his vehicle...he got spoiled with the Navigator.

Are there people out there that don't know this 3.5L V6 has 2 turbos? Has more power and gets better mileage than its V8 predecessor, I love mine in my 15' Expedition EL. The current version has 375hp and 470tq and the top trim level and the Navigator have more than that I think.

After I got my 15 Expe I took a coworker to breakfast. Just so happened to be near local Ford dealer. The 2018 equivalent of my 2015 with pretty much the same options was $61K MSRP.....$64K for 4X4. The only thing the 2018 had was the vista roof.

There must be...otherwise they wouldnít be pining for a V8ís.

Standard Expe is the 375hp/470tq
Upgraded Expe power in high trim is 400hp/480tq
Navigator is 450hp/510tq

If I was in the market, Iíd probably opt for the new Navigator just for the enhanced engine. I like the Expedition quite a bit, but the interior of the Navi, in my opinion, is quite a bit nicer looking....plus, itís hard to turn down factory power. Iím not one for dealing with aftermarket engine upgrades anymore.

Either way someone chooses, there is no bad choice.
