Back in August, we mentioned that rumors were swirling that Ford was going to bring back the King Ranch trim for the Expedition. A bit over a month later, Ford has officially announced the 2020 Ford Expedition King Ranch. Ford says that Expedition sales are booming up 56 percent compared to the same period of last year and the new King Ranch versions will help build on that success.
One in five Ford Expedition buyers opt for the Platinum, and about six in ten choose either the Platinum or Limited model. The 2020 Ford Expedition King Ranch has unique style inside and out with Stone Gray paint on the grille mesh, power deployable running boards, rear bumper skid plate, trailer hitch cover, roof-rack side rails, and side mirror caps.
2020 Ford Expedition King Ranch models also get body-color painted upper bumpers and Stone Gray lower bumpers. The King Ranch rolls on 22-inch six-spoke wheels in a machined finish with dark tarnish-painted pockets. The King Ranch badging features the “Running W” brand the actual King Ranch is known for on the body sides, liftgate, and wheel center caps.
All three rows of seats inside get Del Rio leather. Ebony Del Rio Leather covers the door trim, and the leather-wrapped steering wheel features intricate Kingsville stitching. The console is covered in Del Rio leather with Ziricote wood veneer. Second-row seats are power-folding, tip-and-slide captain’s chairs with perforated inserts.
Ford Co-Pilot360 is standard, and the King Ranch gets continuously controlled damping, 360-degree camera with split-view, front and rear washers, power-folding heated side-view mirrors with turn signals, security approach lamps, and an auto-dimming driver’s side mirror. Power is from the Expedition’s standard 3.5-liter Ecoboost making 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Pricing and availability are unannounced. King Ranch trim is offered on the standard-wheelbase Expedition and Expedition MAX.
