What Edmunds Says

Though most buyers prefer car-based crossovers to full-size, truck-based SUVs, the 2015 Ford Expedition should still satisfy those who need significant passenger, cargo and towing capacities.

Pros

Roomy third-row seat shouldn't change; easy-folding rear seats increase interior flexibility; tows more than similarly sized crossovers.

Cons

Still not as space-efficient as some three-row crossovers; feels big from the driver seat; fuel mileage still not likely to improve much.

What's New for 2015

The 2015 Ford Expedition is redesigned with subtle styling changes, an improved interior and new engines.

Introduction

After Chevrolet and GMC recently revealed new looks and features for the Suburban, Tahoe and Yukon models, the full-size SUV lens shifts to Ford's next move. While the new GM family wagons share strong genetics with the Silverado/Sierra full-size pickups, we don't expect the 2015 Ford Expedition to similarly benefit as much from the next-generation F-150's changes. Instead, Ford will minimize its investment in a shrinking but still-profitable segment while upgrading the Expedition's power and comfort.

Like the GM twins, the next Expedition will get only cursory design updates in the grille, front fascia and rear end. Early photos of test prototypes suggest similar dimensions and the same slab-sided proportions as the current model. The fully exposed Expedition could change our song, but if you're shopping on style, we think you'll do just as well with a 2014 model.

Significant changes under the hood may warrant waiting for the 2015 Expedition, though. A 365-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 -- also expected in the next-generation F-150 -- should help the Expedition achieve fuel efficiency to offset its body-on-frame mass. It should also give the big SUV impressive oomph. Rated at 420 pound-feet of torque, the new V6 should make the Ford the equal of any toy hauler in its class. By comparison, the Chevy and GMC SUVs use larger V8s to achieve 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque.

The V6, however, may remain an option. We can't see the current Expedition's 5.4-liter V8 making the cut for the new generation, but Ford's 5.0-liter V8 -- the same engine that makes 420 hp in the Mustang GT -- could be the Expedition's base engine (although sufficiently detuned from the Mustang's output). Both engines will likely connect to a six-speed automatic transmission, at least until Ford introduces its oft-rumored 10-speed automatic, sending power to the rear wheels or through an available all-wheel-drive system.

Prototype interior photos show the beginnings of an interior refresh, notably a center stack with revised climate and audio controls and a larger display that suggests the latest MyFord Touch navigation/multimedia interface. A new mechanical load-leveling rear suspension may also replace the current air suspension system.

We expect the 2015 Expedition to debut in late 2014, with sales to begin early the following year. New powertrain and technology also mean a new price, so expect the Expedition's current base price of $41,600 to climb closer to $45,000 -- about the same as the new Suburban's.
