While production of select Blue Oval models has struggled in recent months, that isn’t the case across the entire lineup – in fact, the Ford Explorer crossover, the redesigned 2024 Ford Mustang, and the refreshed 2023 Ford Escape all enjoyed a large uptick in numbers last month. Those models weren’t alone in this regard either, as Ford Expedition production really ramped up in August as well, according to the automaker’s most recent sales report.
In August, a grand total of 9,539 Ford Expedition SUVs rolled off the assembly line at the Kentucky Truck plant, which is 5,624 or 144 percent more than July. That figure also represents the most Expeditions that Ford has produced in the 2023 calendar year thus far, and brings its year-to-date total up to 60,907 units.
While the 2024 Ford Expedition carries on mostly unchanged since the full-size SUV received a refresh for the 2022 model year, The Blue Oval has tweaked the model a bit, regardless. These changes are relatively minor, however, and include the addition of a smart charging USB hub – which adds a second USB-C smart charging port in its second row. This is different from the 2023 model year, when the SUV came standard with one USB-A port and a USB-C port for the second row. Now, both ports are USB-C, reflecting changes in terms of which type of port portable devices have largely switched to in recent years.
Additionally, the 2024 Ford Expedition is gaining a new exterior color dubbed Wild Green as a no-cost option, along with the new Excursion Package, which adds floor liners, the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package and the Advanced Cargo Manager with black roof rail crossbars, along with suspension/drivetrain upgrades such as ControlTrac with eLSD, a 3.73-geared electronic limited-slip differential, and the Continuous Controlled Damping (CCD) system with suspension road preview.
