The Chicago Auto Show may not rank among the big-name industry shows, but it certainly has its merit. Geared more towards the everyday consumer versus the driver with a palate for luxury, the show is arguably more indicative of vehicles' success with the general populace.
After attending the show, Autoguide.com's team rolled out their Top 5 Debuts from the 2017 Chicago Auto Show list; not surprisingly, the well-known Ford Expedition was among the winning mentions in the windy city.
As aptly summed up by AutoGuide's writer, "This people-hauler has been totally overhauled for 2018. Riding on a high-strength steel frame and featuring an aluminum skin, engineering enhancements that helped it shed around 300 pounds. Beyond this, the third-row seat has been enlarged for greater comfort and the engine improved." In reference to more of the nuts and bolts of the SUV, the Expedition also sports a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Together, expect to top out around 375 horsepower with 470 lb-ft of torque.
