2017 Ford Expedition Exterior and Interior

We are looking at the vehicle which has all the characteristics of a classic SUV. The body is constructed from lightweight materials, such as boron steel and aluminum and as a result its weight allows it to develop more speed.

This four door vehicle comes with a feature that enables you to open the door automatically. The seats are arranged in three rows, and they can accommodate up to eight grown up passengers.

The interior is dominated with materials such as aluminum and wood, which leaves a strong impression of elegance and comfort. MyFord touch infotainment system comes as a standard and is accompanied with 10 speaker Sony Audio System. These are operated through a 4.2 inch LCD touch screen which is located on the instrument panel.

2017 Ford Expedition Release Date and Price

According to all the available information the 2017 Expedition should be available at dealerships in the second half of 2016. However, these are only speculations, and might include more wishful thinking than we would like. If there are no setbacks these estimations might prove to be right.
The starting price for the base model should be approximately 42.000$, and it might go as high as 61.000$ for Platinum EL model. Once on the market Expedition will face completion from industry giants such as GMC Yukon, Nissan Armada and Chevrolet Tahoe.
