All-New, 2018 Ford Expedition Rated At 24 MPG Highway

Following in the footsteps of the 2015 Ford F-150 and 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty, the all-new, 2018 Ford Expedition SUV traded in its old steel body for a skin composed of military-grade aluminum alloy. The result: a reduction in overall vehicle weight, contributing to better fuel economy than the outgoing three-row SUV. To that same end, the redesigned Ford Expedition also gained Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission, plus the same improved, dual-injection 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that graced the 2017 Ford F-150.

Ford today revealed that the ultimate fruit of its labors is a best-in-class EPA fuel economy rating of up to 20 miles-per-gallon on the combined testing cycle – 17 mpg city, and 24 mpg highway. That’s on the 2018 Ford Expedition 4×2 Max, and thanks to a relatively large fuel tank, it translates to a range as long as 538 miles on a full tank of petrol. It also means that Ford can rightly boast superior fuel economy to the Chevrolet Suburban (19 mpg) and Chevrolet Tahoe (17 mpg).

The 4×4 version of the 2018 Ford Expedition, meanwhile, is rated at 19 mpg combined (17 mpg city/22 mpg highway).

Ford says its new three-row SUV is the only one on the market to achieve a 20-mpg EPA rating. It’s a significant improvement over the 2017 model, which achieved a max of 18 mpg on the combined cycle.
