A prototype of the all-new, forthcoming 2018 Ford Expedition has been spied in public, wearing some heavy camouflage. Watch the video above from MotorWeek to catch a glimpse.
The Ford Expedition is the automaker’s full-size, flagship SUV, built on a platform derived from that of the F-150 pickup. Perhaps it should come as no surprise, then, that the fourth-generation Ford Expedition is expected to move to a mostly-aluminum body for the 2018 model year. Chances seem equally strong that, should the F-150 gain a hybrid powertrain option in the coming years as has been predicted, the Ford Expedition would offer the same.
The camouflage is much more thorough on this Ford Expedition prototype than those that have been spotted in the past, with plenty of solid black padding obscuring a new front fascia. The full-size SUV will retain its 5-door body and three-row seating, and it previews some of what we can expect to see on the next iteration of its platform-mate: the Lincoln Navigator.
The Navigator concept’s gull-wing doors aren’t likely to make it to production.
