It’s a grind of gears - with your transmission sputtering in defeat, the throttle clenched in agony. This incline proves too steep for its five-speed capabilities, and your car shudders violently with every inch. You fear that the entire engine will soon fall apart.
Ford wishes to spare you that fate - which is why it’s paired the 2018 Expedition with a powerful new transmission.
According to Trucks.com, the Expedition delivers exceptional performance. It’s anchored by a 10-speed automatic transmission, ensuring seamless transitions from the byways to the backroads. This feature - which was developed in partnership with GM and now serves as the cornerstone for Ford’s 2018 fleet - enables fluid handling. It reduces overall engine effort and improves the Intelligent AWD, allowing the platform to roll forward with ease; and, to further enhance performance, an electric power steering column smoothly connects with every gear.
This lets the 2018 Expedition to rev past the competition - achieving 375 HP and 470 lb.-ft of torque. This best-in-class beast promises peerless capability on every street.
