2021 Ford Expedition | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

The spacious, versatile 2021 Ford Expedition was recently named one of Kelley Blue Book’s 12 Best Family Cars of 2021. It impressed the experts with its eight-passenger maximum seating capacity, impressive towing capability, smooth ride, and connected technology.

 

For the latest model year, the Expedition gained a new base trim model, dubbed the XL. It offers five seats, cloth seating, in-vehicle Wi-Fi® connectivity, and the Co-Pilot360™ suite of driver-assist technology. It also boasts a capable independent rear suspension system, lightweight aluminum body panels, and an efficient-but-powerful turbocharged engine that delivers 400 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque while earning up to 23 mpg on the highway.* All of that muscle enables it to offer up to 9,300 pounds of towing capacity.

 

On top of its impressive standard features, the Expedition offers plenty of space for cargo and passengers alike. Behind the third row, you’ll find 20.9 cubic feet of room, but thanks to the Expedition’s easy-to-fold seats, you can expand the cargo to 63.6 cubic feet or a grand total of 104.6 cubic feet. And if you opt for the extended-wheelbase Expedition MAX, you can enjoy 36 cubic feet of storage space behind the third row, 79.6 cubic feet behind the second row, and up to 121.5 cubic feet with all of the rear seats folded flat.

 

It also offers a wealth of upscale amenities. You can upgrade to enjoy massaging, multi-contour front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, and active noise cancellation.

If you’re in the market for a family vehicle that doesn’t compromise on comfort, capability, or technology, consider the 2021 Ford Expedition. It’s available now at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona.

2018 Ford Expedition

The 2018 Ford Expedition is a family-friendly SUV with plenty of space for both passengers and cargo. The Expedition is now even more appealing to families after earning a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The NHTSA is one of the leading automotive safety organizations, and the 2018 Ford Expedition safety features proved especially crucial in earning it the highest honor for safety available

According to The News Wheel, the Expedition earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating by getting nearly perfect scores in the New Car Assessment Program’s crash tests. Features that helped it to earn such a rating include high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy in the body; a fully-boxed steel frame; and driver-assist technologies aimed at providing confidence behind the wheel. These high-tech safety features include Lane-Keeping System, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Forward Collision Warning, and auto high-beam headlamps.

“As a father of four and longtime Expedition owner, safety was a top priority when engineering the entirely new Expedition,” said Andrew Kernahan, Ford Expedition chief program engineer. “We are proud of the many features Expedition offers today that help keep our customers safe on the road.”

The 2018 Ford Expedition is big in more ways than one. It’s imposing in size and a great value, perfect for your family needs or making first impressions. To test-drive the Expedition and experience its award-winning safety in person, stop into Sanderson Ford.

 

Ford Expedition Production to Increase at Kentucky Plant

2018 Ford Expedition

Last month, Ford announced that it planned to boost Ford Expedition production at its Kentucky Truck Plant; Ford will also boost production of the Lincoln Navigator for its luxury brand.

This is no small production boost either. Production of the Expedition and its luxury companion will jump up 25%, marking a $25 million investment in the Kentucky plant. This raises the total amount of money that Ford has pledged to the Kentucky Truck Plant up to a whopping $925 million.

So why this increase? Simply because Ford has designed an amazing product that dealers just keep selling out of. We can’t keep up with the demand—so when you do see a Ford Expedition on our lot, you’ll want to act fast, or you may have to wait a little longer for the next batch to arrive.

“The response from customers regarding our new full-size SUVs has been exceptional,” explained Joe Hinrichs, president of global operations. “Using a combination of Ford’s advanced manufacturing and American hard work and ingenuity, we’ll deliver more high-quality Lincoln Navigators and Ford Expeditions to customers than originally planned.”

The other $900 million that Ford has poured into this plant have paid for 400 robots to improve speed and safety at the factory, as well a data analytics hub for meeting goals and a 3D printer to produce parts better, faster, and more cheaply.
