Last year, we shared some spy photos of the 2018 Ford Expedition that showed off some body changes. This year, the SUV has been revealed and there are a lot more changes inside.
We wanted to talk about the new and updated technologies that the latest Expedition has to offer. Advanced features play such a vital role in the enjoyment and performance of any vehicle. Here are 9 technologies that help this SUV become a smarter vehicle for you and your family.
1. Rear Seat Entertainment System
Driving the 2018 Ford Expedition around the Union and Morris County NJ area or on longer road trips can be a lot more fun for the family with the updated rear seat entertainment system. That’s because SlingPlayer™ allows passengers watch their home cable programming on either dual headrest screen or on handheld devices when connected to a home Slingbox™ account.
2. Wi-Fi Hotspot
We know that going over your data plan can be so easy, especially when driving and streaming. That’s why the Expedition can turn into a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 devices at once that are from up to 50 feet away from the SUV in any direction. Bye bye overage fees!
3. Power to the Passenger
Are your family and loved ones plagued by their phones and tablets dying on a long ride? Then, you’ll love that the Ford Expedition has more than enough places to charge mobile devices between the 4 12-volt power points, 6 USB chargers and a 110-volt power outlet. Plug and play away!
4. Advanced Cargo Manager
Packing for trips just became a lot easier thanks to the 2018 Ford Expedition’s advanced cargo manager. That’s because it’s customizable to let you create a storage space to haul whatever you need to and will prevent cargo from rolling out when the SUV is parked on a hill.
5. B&O PLAY Premium Audio System
Music lovers will rejoice at the new B&O PLAY premium audio system. That’s because this stereo’s 12 speakers have been acoustically engineered to give all passengers a sound experience that makes them feel like they’re in just the right seat at a concert with their favorite band playing their best songs.
6. Wireless Charging
It’s so easy to forget the wires that you along with your mobile device if you’re in a rush in the morning. The 2018 Expedition now offers wireless charging capability for compatible devices that are placed on an integrated charging pad located on the front center console.
7. Panoramic Vista Roof
Whether you want some natural sunlight to come in or some extra breeze on a warm day, the panoramic Vista Roof is the ideal solution since it spans 2 rows so everyone can enjoy Mother Nature. No other competitor to the 2018 Ford Expedition offers a moonroof or sunroof like this one.
8. SYNC® 3
SYNC 3 is the ideal way to use to integrate your smartphone into your vehicle to make & take calls, send & receive texts, listen to your music library and more. This infotainment system has been updated to offer Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to let you connect your iPhone and Android smartphone for your SUV, respectively.
9. SYNC Connect
Also included with the SYNC 3 infotainment system, SYNC Connect lets you connect with the Expedition remotely using FordPass®. This program allows you to start the SUV (and schedule it to turn on at a certain time), lock & unlock it, locate your vehicle and receive important vehicle diagnostics like how much fuel you have and the approximate mileage on the odometer.
