Ford unveiled two new models of the Ford Expedition for the 2020 model-year, the Expedition King Ranch and an upgraded Platinum model.
The new Expedition King Ranch sports includes power-deployable running boards, rear bumper skid plate, trailer hitch cover, roof-rack side rails, and side mirror caps. Other exterior highlights include body color-painted upper bumpers, Stone Gray-painted lower bumpers, and other aesthetic flourishes that emphasize the trim. The addition of a new King Ranch version aims to build on the success of large SUVS, according to the automaker.
As with Platinum models, King Ranch comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist driver-assist technology, continuously controlled damping, 360-degree camera with split-view and front and rear washers, power-folding, heated side-view mirrors with turn signal indicators, security approach lamps and auto-dimming driver’s side mirror.
Expedition Platinum is updated with new 22-inch wheels and new premium finishes. Leather upgrades highlight the interior, including an instrument panel topper wrapped in leather, plus front door trim rollover and console rails.
Platinum also includes features such as leather-trimmed front- and second-row seats with perforated seat inserts and quilted bolsters, and multi-contour front seats with Active Motion.
More technology now comes standard with the Expedition, including FordPass Connect, with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 mobile devices. SYNC 3 is also included which features compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Ford Co-Pilot360 is standard for 2020, providing driver-assist features such as Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support; Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert; a Lane-Keeping System; rear backup camera with built-in lens washer; and auto high-beam headlamps.
King Ranch is available on Expedition standard-wheelbase, as well as Expedition MAX extended-wheelbase.
