Gwinnett Place Ford Previews the New Expedition
The 2016 Ford Expedition is virtually unchanged this year following a refresh that occurred for the 2015 model year. The full-size, eight-passenger SUV continues to offer three rows of seating, an efficient powertrain option and ample room within the cabin. As always, buyers can choose to purchase a standard Expedition or the extended-length Expedition EL, and select one of four trims: XLT, Limited, King Ranch and Platinum. The only addition to the model this year is Ford's all-new SYNC 3 infotainment system, a replacement for MyFord Touch. For info about this system and to read about the SUV's power offerings, look over our 2016 Ford Expedition review.
The most notable change to the 2016 Ford Expedition in Duluth is introduction of SYNC 3 technology. The new system replaces the SUV's MyFord Touch system, which had seen better days. Touted as the next-generation of voice-activated technology, SYNC 3 is more intuitive and responsive than MyFord Touch. It gives drivers the ability to stay connected while traveling on the road and comes with a collection of great features, including hands-free calling, 911 Assist, music search and control, smartphone integration, available navigation and Siri Eyes Free, to name a few.
Powering the 2016 Ford Expedition in Duluth is a mighty 3.5L V6 engine. It delivers 365 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, while working alongside a six-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift capability. Available in rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, the Expedition utilizes the strong V6 to achieve a tow rating of 9,200 pounds, when properly equipped. Aside from the outstanding tow rating, the V6 also provides enough power to launch the Expedition from 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds, making it one of the fastest SUVs in its segment.
