Sponsored Links

We’re over halfway through 2020, which means that it won’t be long before 2021 model year vehicles are getting closer and closer to production. That includes the Ford Expedition, which is currently in its fourth-generation after the all-new model debuted in 2018. Now, Ford Authority has learned the 2021 Ford Expedition order and production dates for those interested in obtaining the newest copy of The Blue Oval’s full-size SUV.

2020 Ford Expedition

2021 Ford Expedition order books are scheduled to open up on September 16th, 2020. Production will begin at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, Kentucky a couple of months later on November 30th, 2020. The Expedition will continue to be built alongside the Ford F-250-F-550 Super Duty line of trucks, plus the Expedition‘s platform mate, the Lincoln Navigator.

The Expedition is a full-size, body-on-frame SUV with an aluminum-alloy body built on the Ford T3 platform. It is a modified version of the half-ton platform that underpins the Ford F-150, and it utilizes a four-wheel independent suspension system. The Expedition is also available with selectable automatic full-time four-wheel drive that sends power through a two-speed dual range transfer case to electronic locking rear and center multi-disc differentials.

The Expedition is powered by Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which produces 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, and is equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Ford also offers an FX4 model in both regular and extended MAX trim that serves as a dedicated off-road package. That trim offers up a terrain management system, an electronic limited-slip rear differential with 3.73:1 gears, unique 18-inch Magnetic Metallic cast aluminum wheels with 32 inch all-terrain tires, off-road-tuned dampers, a total of seven skid plates, turbo sand shield, and other unique touches.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    • I agree, the 2021 MY will be the fourth year with no refresh. It looks a little tired and given the new Tahoe/Yukon. for 2021 they should have stepped up to match them with something a little updated. The interior and technology is very dated, with everyone moving to 10-12″ multimedia screens and SYNC4 the 2021 should have kept up. Ford has a serious issue with dragging their feet on technology. SYNC3 is dated and basic, releasing anything in 2021 without SYNC4 is sending the customer a message that Ford can’t keep up.

  1. To the tone deaf individuals above, it has been published in a few spaces that 2022 model year is when the major changes to U 553 and U 554 will be launched. I’m on the MCA for T3 SUVs and next SD P708.

    You clearly don’t pay very good attention at all.

  2. I can’t stand the dark interiors!!!!! give us a choice for 2021 Expedition MAX. The dark panels and dash show all the dust and dirt…door gets shoe scuff marks. Lincoln Navigator has all light camel beige interiors with black carpet why doesn’t ford offer that??? Plus Lincoln charges 15 to 20K more for it, yuck..
