New 2018 Ford Expedition Revealed Weighing 300 LBS Less

Dearbornís Ford Expedition SUV has gotten pretty stale in recent years, but at long last, it has just received a ground-up redesign.

Debuting at the Chicago Auto Show is Fordís latest and greatest full-size family hauler. For 2018, it gains a new look, more power, more efficiency, and more driver-assistance features, all while shedding a whole bunch of weight.

Thanks to an aluminum skin and completely re-engineered high-strength steel frame, the Expedition is up to 300 pounds lighter than its predecessor and probably a lot more robust as well.

As youíd expect, a turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 provides the giddy-up, though neither horsepower nor torque figures have been released in typical Ford fashion. As with the F-150, a 10-speed automatic transmission is this drivetrainís other half, which should help provide a best-in-class tow rating. Stop-start technology is standard, which should appreciably improve fuel economy.

I wonder whether the weight decrease is going to have any impact on the stability of the car when it's on its road, especially if people are going to expect to take the car on the less travelled ones. Only time and an actual test drive will tell I think!
