Ford Expedition Production Increased In March 2024

Production of the Ford Super Duty, Ford Expedition, and Lincoln Navigator faced one major challenge last year – the United Auto Workers (UAW) strike -which directly impacted the Kentucky Truck Plant for a several weeks. Following those proverbial bumps in the road, Ford Expedition production, specifically, bounced right back in November before declining in December, though figures have since rebounded in both January and February to kick off the new year. Now, with another month in the rearview, we can see that Ford Expedition production increased yet again in March, according to FoMoCo’s Q1 2024 sales report.

In January, Ford Expedition production totaled 9,324 units, which represented a significant month-over-month increase of around 43.6 percent, or 2,929 units. Expedition production continued its upward trend in February as well, albeit at a slower clip, rising by 169 units or around 1.8 percent to 9,493 units. March marked the third straight month of increases in terms of how many large SUVs FoMoCo has built, too – that total came in at 9,806 units last month, which is 313 units or just over three percent more than the month prior.

Both the Ford Expedition and its platform mate – the Navigator – are set to receive some updates soon as part of a mid-cycle refresh for the 2025 model year. As Ford Authority previously reported, hybrid versions of the Expedition and Navigator are seemingly likely to debut alongside the forthcoming 2025 model year updates planned for both models, which include revised, Range Rover-like exterior styling and new taillights for the Expedition, along with Nautilus-like cues for the Navigator, plus revised interior designs and even a coast-to-coast display screen for the big Lincoln SUV.

As Ford Authority recently reported, the 2025 Ford Expedition will also receive a pretty extensive interior makeover, one that will include the introduction of a coast-to-coast or pillar-to-pillar screen, along with an additional screen in the center stack that’s located between the HVAC vents, much like the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus, among various other tweaks – details confirmed by some recently acquired photos of a refreshed Expedition prototype.

    If Ford is planning to offer Hybrid versions of the Expedition and Navigator, wny not include the Explorer with a PHEV or Hybrid option ? The Toyota Highlander offers a Hybrid version that is selling very well at this point. Opportunity lost for now.

    What happened to the Raptor powered version of the Expedition ?
