2018 Ford Expedition Review

Welcome to Sheridan Ford, your top Ford dealership in Wilmington, DE! Your needs as a customer are our top priority, so come visit us on Kirkwood Highway so we can learn about you, and you can learn about the car you have in mind and a finance plan for it.

If your family is growing, and you need a full-sized SUV, we suggest the 2018 Ford Expedition. This impressive SUV reigns supreme over its competition. Visit us for a test drive today!

Performance and Capability

Each 2018 Expedition comes standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission. It is also equipped with a 3.5-L EcoBoost® engine that delivers an impressive 375 hp and 460 lb.-ft. of torque. This amount of torque allows for a more effective distribution of power to the wheels.

Tow up to 9,300 lbs. with confidence if you choose the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package. This SUV is designed for the family that takes on weekend excursions. With towing capacity like this, go for the bigger boat or pop-up RV to enjoy a weekend on the water or camping trip. The available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™1,2 helps you see the trailer as you reverse so you can easily steer it. AdvancTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) work with the Expedition’s trailer sway control by engaging the brakes to keep both the SUV and attached trailer firmly planted on the road.

There is also the option for Curve Control3, which will help you slow down if you’re going to fast as you drive around a corner.

For the more adventurous types, choose the available FX4 Off-Road Package. Take on any terrain with 4-Wheel Drive and 7 drive modes to adapt to the road you’re on.

Additionally, these driver-assist features give you backup when you need it:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • BLIS (Blind Spot Information System)
  • Pre-Collision Assist
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Active Park Assist


Ford’s SYNC®3 comes standard on the 2018 Expedition. Depending on the trim you select, you will have either a 4.2” or 8” LCD touch screen display to display everything on your phone. While driving, with the use of voice-activated technology, you can make phone calls, respond to texts or emails and change songs without taking your eyes off the road or the wheel.

Keep tabs on your SUV when you’re not in it with the FordPass™ phone application. If linked with SYNC Connect, you can check your fuel levels, remotely lock/unlock the doors and even start/stop your engine. Find parking, compare fuel prices and schedule service as needed all through this app. You also have access to trained Ford guides that can answer any question you may have about your Ford SUV.

SYNC Connect also uses a GPS response system that can sense if you’ve been in a collision and will contact help on your behalf.

Space and Comfort

Stretch out a little and make yourself comfortable—the 2018 Expedition offers plenty of head and legroom:

1st row leg room 43.9 inches
2nd row leg room 41.5 inches
3rd row leg room 40.9 inches
1st row head room 42 inches
2nd row head room 40 inches

  1. Available feature. 2. Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s attention, judgment and need to control the vehicle. 3. Remember that even advanced technology cannot overcome the laws of physics. It’s always possible to lose control of a vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions.
