Venturing off-road seems to be something Ford drivers tend to love, even if the vehicle isn’t specially designed for rough terrain. As it turns out, the return of the Ford F-150 Raptor was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to more off-road-oriented vehicles. The Ford Expedition FX4 has also returned in style, with more capability than the standard model.
The Ford Expedition FX4 returns for the first time since 2003 and brings a vast array of updated equipment. Under the hood lies a twin-turbocharged V6 engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission that produces 375 hp. Four-wheel drive comes standard as well.
The upcoming off-road SUV boasts a retuned suspension and standard limited-slip rear differential for optimized traction and comfort. Seven protective plates cover vital components as well. The whole SUV rolls out on standard 18-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires.
More than 20 percent of Ford Expedition owners travel off-road in their SUV. As a result, the automaker expects the upcoming Expedition FX4 to appeal to the enthusiast in us all and make up 10 percent of Expedition sales. Pricing has yet to be announced, but stay tuned for more information.
