Website CarsDirect.com uncovered pricing details for the all-new, 2018 Ford Expedition SUV, discovering across-the-board price increases over the 2017 model that range from $4,550 to $8,650. The site’s numbers have reportedly been confirmed by a Ford PR rep.
At the low end of the range is the 2018 Ford Expedition XLT, which will wear a starting price tag of $52,890, including destination. That’s $4,570 more than the outgoing model, notes CarsDirect.com. At the opposite end, you have the 2018 Expedition Platinum MAX 4×4, which will start a staggering $8,650 more than the equivalent 2017 Expedition Platinum EL 4×4.

The 2018 Ford Expedition’s new aluminum-alloy body is likely at least partly to blame for the increases in pricing. Beside that, the SUV also benefits from a new, more potent version of the outgoing model’s standard 3.5L EcoBoost – one that produces 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque in the XLT and Limited models, and 400 horsepower / 480 lb-ft in the range-topping Platinum. Rear-wheel drive is standard across all models, save for the FX4 off-roader; AWD is roughly a $3k option, depending on trim level.
The all-new, 2018 Ford Expedition will launch in the US this fall.
