Ford sets high expectations for all of its vehicles, and the 2018 Expedition is no exception — especially in its Platinum trim. In this top-of-the-line trim, you’ll get comfortable conveniences like heated and ventilated seats, a 9,300-pound towing capacity, and active safety features you didn’t know you needed like the cross-traffic alert. The Platinum model sets the highest standards for the Expedition with more style, convenience, and comfort.
Powering the 2018 Expedition Platinum is a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces up to 400 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. This engine pairs with a smooth 10-speed automatic transmission that throws power to the rear wheels as standard or all four wheels with optional four-wheel drive. Exclusive to the Platinum model, is auto start-stop technology, which helps you save at the pump by turning off the engine during extended stops.
That power allows the Expedition to boast a best-in-class 9,300-pound towing capacity when equipped with the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package. It features trailer-sway control working with AdvanceTrac® and roll-stability control to make your vehicle feel solid even when conditions aren’t ideal. The available blind-spot information system with trailer coverage helps watch your blind spots not only around the vehicle and the trailer. And you can find the hitch no problem with pro trailer backup assist helping you steer the trailer in reverse with the turn of a knob.
With three rows to choose from, there’s plenty of good seating for the whole family. There’s easy access to the third row with the tip-and-slide second-row seats that allow you to leave a child safety seat secured. Third-row power-reclining seats make even long trips relaxing for rear passengers. For added flexibility, you can even fold the second row flat, giving the third-row passengers a limo-like experience.
For even more added room and flexibility, you can upgrade to the 2018 Expedition Platinum MAX. It’s for families who have more to carry and want a vehicle that lives as large as they do. At 11.9 inches longer than the Expedition, the Expedition MAX can accommodate up to an additional 16 cubic feet of cargo for your next adventure.
Keep everyone connected and entertained on your next long journey with the Ford Expedition Platinum’s range of convenience features. Staying connected on the road is effortless thanks to SYNC® 3 infotainment system, six available USB ports, and a center console wireless charger that keeps your devices juiced up and ready to go. The available 12-speaker B&O PLAY premium audio system and dual-headrest rear-seat entertainment system gives everyone a little extra tech to play with.
