Here’s What We Know And Expect From The 2025 Ford Expedition

The 2025 Ford Expedition is set to introduce a redesign to the full-size SUV, and Ford Authority has kept it in the crosshairs since we first spotted a prototype undergoing testing back in May 2023. The Blue Oval has kept details regarding the forthcoming Expedition close to its vest thus far, as expected, but in the meantime, we’ve outline what we know and expect about the refreshed SUV to tide you over.

First up, the 2025 Ford Expedition greets the world with a redesigned front fascia. It’s quite a bit different than that of the current Expedition, and bears a striking resemblance to the 2024 Ford F-150, creating design congruity between the two vehicles that share a platform and certain mechanical components. This includes slim, curved LED lighting signatures hemming in the stacked headlights, and a new grille that is curved toward the bottom. A new bar spans the width of the grille, running behind The Blue Oval logo. Additionally, the forthcoming Expedition will feature 24-inch wheels, a first for the full-size SUV.

Out back, the 2025 Ford Expedition gains a new set of taillights that extend above the beltline, as opposed to the current design, which are situated well below it. The redesigned taillights also don’t extend into the sides of the SUV, and don’t feature the “stepped” design seen on the current model; rather, they are more vertical and slimmed down.

As previously reported by Ford Authority, the 2025 Expedition will likely also boast a split liftgate. This includes a lower section (the tailgate) and an upper section (the upper liftgate). The lower section allows users to drop the tailgate as they would in a pickup like the F-150, while the upper section allows access to the rear cargo area without opening the entire liftgate, similar to the rear glass hatch on the current model. As such, the forthcoming Expedition won’t have the same rear glass design as the current model, improving noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels.

There’s even bigger news on the way for the 2025 Expedition interiorFord Authority got a peek inside the windows of a prototype earlier this year, giving us a good look at its redesigned dashboard, which boasts new vents and a curved design. The dual glovebox setup appears to have been eliminated, meaning that there is only one glovebox present; the upper tier seems to have been deleted.

The infotainment screen, meanwhile, looks similar to the current model’s 12-inch unit, but it’s possible that it could be the 13.2-inch unit featured in the refreshed 2025 Ford Explorer. Note that it is arranged in a panoramic orientation, rather than the vertical, tablet-like screen found in the pre-refresh model. The 13.2-inch unit would operate like a traditional touchscreen and function similarly to the system that’s currently standard on the 2024 Lincoln Nautilus.

Additionally, the physical buttons found in the current Expedition seem to have also been deleted, meaning that the climate control functions have very likely been moved to the infotainment center touchscreen, similar to the 2025 Ford Explorer. The rotary dial has also been relocated and is now situated below the screen rather than on the center console, flanked by a row of buttons. The overall aesthetic matches up neatly with the 2025 Ford Explorer’s center stack.

Under the hood, the 2025 Ford Explorer could very well offer a hybrid powertrain option. At this time, it’s not clear what that powertrain could be, but it’s likely that it could be the same twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 PowerBoost that originally launched in the 2021 Ford F-150. Aside from that, the 2025 Explorer is expected to retain the Ford 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine, which is the sole option for the current model.

    Hate the sloping down back Roofs on the last several years of Expeditions! Why did they do that? All the old Expeditions used to have the high straight back Roof line…

    Some editing is needed in this article. There are a couple times in the second to last paragraph when “Explorer” is written when “Expedition” is intended.

    I do think the front end is an improvement and the interior should be too.

    It’s very apparent that Ford doesn’t care about vehicle design or quality. They’re headed back to the 90’s with terrible designs and quality.

    The front looks like the 2017 Ford Escape? Sorry not a good look.
