2025 Ford Expedition Possibly Spotted With Tow Package: Pics

Ford Authority has spotted numerous 2025 Ford Expedition prototypes out testing over the past several months, previewing a number of  changes set to take place as part of the large SUV’s forthcoming refresh. Many of those updates are of the exterior styling variety, though the 2025 Ford Expedition will also feature some notable changes inside the cabin. Now, Ford Authority has spotted another 2025 Expedition – this time, with another feature present that we haven’t seen on any prior prototype.

That feature is likely the Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Package, which we say because this 2025 Ford Expedition prototype is equipped with wheels that look very similar to the ones used on the 2024 model with that particular option. For the 2024 model year, that package adds a host of equipment including the aforementioned 18-inch machined-face aluminum wheels with Magnetic-painted pockets, a 3.73-geared non-limited slip rear axle, a beefier radiator, Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, Pro Trailer Backup Assist, digital rear view camera, Reverse Brake Assist, and two-speed automatic four-wheel drive with neutral towing capacity. Currently, the Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Package enables the Expedition to tow over 6,000 pounds and as much as 9,200 pounds depending on the configuration.

Additionally, this prototype’s body-color painted mirror caps seem to indicate that it’s an XLT trimmed SUV. Otherwise, we are once again getting a good look at the revamped front end design of the 2025 Ford Expedition, which is quite similar to the refreshed 2024 Ford F-150, as expected.

In addition to these changes, the 2025 Ford Expedition is set to receive a few more updates, as Ford Authority has outlined over the past several months. Those include a set of 24-inch wheels, a new taillight design, and a rear wiper that’s relocating from the bottom of the rear window to the top. Inside the cabin, the 2025 Ford Expedition is also getting some updates in the form of a revised design, a new infotainment screen, and even a coast-to-coast screen setup.

Additionally, as Ford Authority exclusively reported last week, the 2025 Ford Expedition is set to offer a split liftgate out back, which means that there will be a lower and upper section that open independently of each other, meaning that one could gain access to the rear cargo area by simply dropping the lower section, or tailgate.

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.

    Oh look a trailer hitch….big deal

    The Question is the costs of fuel to pull the trailers to and back from their destination. Do they have extra fuel capacity ? I had a GMC Suburban with a 40 gallon tank . The motor must have the torque to pull the trailer up and down steep hills !

    I am shocked to read that Ford’s R&D people are using 40 gallon tanks in the Ford Expedition’s new model.
    As an Australian who has driven Ford vehicles (All Australian manufactured vehicle, which Ford CEO made decision to cease production of The Ford Falcon Range back in 2016. Further, made it known Australian Ford Driver will continue receiving great Ford products at reduced prices.) Ford provided vehicle with long range 80 gallon tanks in the Falcon range. In mid 2000, Ford reduced tank sizes to 68 litres tanks.
    Australian’s got new lineup of Ford products, Ranger basic to Ranger Top range models, SUV’s in various sizes and model range. A great majority of Australians were disappointed there was no sedan, even though a sedan option was available in China. Most disappointed were Law Enforcement Agencies who had to scramble world wide vehicle manufacturer’s to sauce suitable replacement vehicles. Their option was choosing vehicles from VW Sedans and wagons And Skoda Wagons for their daily pursuit vehicles. Ford Ranger and similar models from Toyota for everyday use vehicles with a lock-up cell on the back of these vehicles.
    My last Ford Vehicle is a 1998 EL Falcon Sedan auto with a straight in-line 6 cylinder MPFI producing 157KW’s. It’s 26 years old, has most of the original components and getting good fuel economy and has 408,973 kilometres on clock. I will not buy any new Ford vehicle ever, I will drive this vehicle till my last breath. Not everyone wants a ute (truck) or SUV to drive around in!

    The grill looks like Ford is going back to the Model U concept design.
