Ford is tallying up their annual numbers, and it’s clear to see that the company is the number one choice for SUVs with a total of almost 800,000 being sold this year - a record figure! It's believed that this is partly due to the popularity of the new EcoSport and Expedition. Let’s take a look at why the latter has had so much success since its introduction.
The fully-loaded 2019 Ford Expedition Max Platinum comes equipped with an EcoBoost V6 which is anything but humble. The 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged motor cranks out a hearty 400 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque - that kind of ferocity teamed with a 10-speed transmission makes an unbeatable combo.
This supersized vehicle earns its “max” prefix. It’s a monster with an exterior length of 221.9 inches and a height of 76.4 inches. What’s more, you’ll have all the space you want for luggage or groceries because it has an enormous cargo area of 34.3 cubic feet, and you can tumble-down the last row to increase storage capacity to 73.3 cubic feet. Despite its size, you still get an impressive fuel economy of 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway (18 combined).

The crossover experience will never be the same - with Ford introducing Everett drivers to its 2018 Expedition Platinum. This platform delivers premium comfort, with its cabin fused with top-tier features. Expect more with every mile.
According to Herald Net, the 2018 Expedition is tailored for ease. Approach the massive eight-passenger body and discover power-deployable running boards. These ensure quick entry into the spacious cabin (210-inches long, 84-inches wide, and 74-inches high) and provide a stable step while maneuvering onto the leather seats. One-touch technology anchors the second and third rows, yielding custom configurations; and integrated heating functions defy even the coldest days. A panoramic sunroof affords striking views; a hands-free interface defines the SYNC infotainment console; and the B&O audio system boasts voice-activated functionality, allowing drivers to access their favorite digital content.
Further enhancing each adventure is the inclusion of trailer sway control technology. The Platinum proves perfect for families, offering up to 6,000 pounds of conventional towing. To ensure that these hauls don’t undermine the stability of the platform, however, Ford has fused it with automated braking functionality - with rear sensors monitoring the pitch of every payload. Should an imbalance be detected, the ABS will be engaged and speed will smoothly slow. This will maintain a refined ride in the cabin and keep the Expedition at an optimal alignment.
The 2018 Platinum offers a series of upgrades to Everett. To test these features contact our team today!

The results are in for Ford’s sales report for October, and the numbers are looking great for all of the company’s SUVs. The 2018 Expedition saw a 74.7 percent increase in deliveries last month, making it one of the most popular models available on the market today. The 2018 Explorer also raked in high marks with its best-selling 30-day period since 2004.
This recent spike in interest for the Expedition may be due to its sparkling upgrades. Powered by a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, this full-size model generates 375 hp and 470 pound-feet of torque. Equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission, it has a fuel economy set at 20 mpg combined (17 city//24 highway). With the proper towing package, it can haul up to 6,000 lbs.
The Limited trim level includes 20-inch wheels and roof rails for additional storage space. Heated seats throughout the second row are also an attractive option for Seattle families. Everyone can stay warm and cozy during the upcoming winter season. You can even listen to HD radio through the 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium sound system.

Frustration no longer mars the miles - with the 2019 Expedition instead delivering premium comfort. Slide inside this eight-passenger behemoth and discover ample options for every adventure, taking advantage of Ford’s exclusive 202A Package.
According to The Spokesman, the new Expedition connects Kent drivers to the comfort they deserve. Select the 202A suite and redefine the highway. A remote start feature provides quick entry, engaging both the engine and the dual-zone climate controls with the press of a button; while the leather seats now boast both heating and ventilation technologies, promising custom temperature settings for the front row. Power-adjustable pedals promote convenience, adjusting to individual height demands with ease; and the supple steering wheel features integrated warming functions to stave off the Washington chill. The entire cabin is tailored for passenger pleasure.
Ford isn’t content to limit its comfort technologies, however. Instead the 202A Package also extends to the exterior - fusing the Expedition with both retractable running boards and a hands-free liftgate. The latter feature, in particular, proves impressive: enabling drivers to access the massive bay (104.6 cu.-ft) by simply activating the rear-mounted sensors with their feet. No longer struggle with keys or complicated fob sequences.
The 2019 Expedition is a perfect option for those demanding more than the ordinary. To learn more about this crossover - or the 202A Package - contact our team today.
The dimensions prove massive - with the 2018 Expedition Platinum reaching 210-inches in length, 84-inches in width, and 77-inches in height. This eight-passenger behemoth claims every lane as its own, and Puyallup drivers swallow nervously when they think of trying to control it. There’s no way, they believe, to tame such a big beast.
The new Expedition - as Automoblog explains - proves spry on the highway, despite its cavernous design. This is because Ford has fused it with a potent engine suite, meant to enhance performance on even the wildest Washington roads. Take a peek beneath the hood and find a 3.5L EcoBoost. This V6 yields impressive capability, generating 400 HP and 480 lb.-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission delivers SelectShift functionality, crisply navigating each gear ratio; while twin independent variable camshaft timing expedites combustion, increasing both intake levels and fuel distribution. A 10.0:1 compression ratio assures smooth sequencing; and dual air-to-air turbochargers send bursts of power to the block on command, allowing the platform to quickly reach the redline.
This provides Washington drivers with the performance they need - enabling the Expedition to maneuver across every road with ease. Don't be intimidated by this beast. It can be tamed with the press of a pedal.

Ease has come to the crossover market - with Ford fusing its 2018 Expedition Limited with a series of driver-focused technologies. Value now defines the fascia, ensuring effortless control with every mile.
As In Forum explains, the new Expedition Limited delivers convenience. Halogen beam projector-style headlamps pair with LED tail-lights to ensure peerless illumination, allowing drivers to easily maneuver around tight curves; while intermittent front and rear wipers respond to changing weather conditions, maximizing visibility through their automated engagements. An integrated de-icer strips away unwanted condensation from the windshield, and a window washer counters all seasonal muck.
To further enhance the driver experience, the Limited also boasts a hands-free rear lift-gate. This function eliminates the need for clumsy keys, instead utilizing integrated sensors to interpret entry/exit patterns. Operators need only to wave a foot beneath the bumper to smoothly open the door, granting immediate access to the cavernous bay (which spans 104.6 cu.-ft). Pair this with stainless steel roof rails and a Class IV trailer hitch for peerless cargo capabilities.
The 2018 Expedition is primed to impress - allowing riders to seize control of every highway. To learn more about this crossover (or to schedule a test-drive in one of our current models) contact our team today!
Popularity is fickle in the automotive world. Each day sees the rise - and fall - of cars, with consumer interest proving impossible to predict. Preferences changes; trends shift; and sustainability is forgotten…. almost.
Ford has managed to defy this fair-weather pattern - with its Expedition earning long-term loyalty from Washington.
According to The Car Connection, the Expedition ranks among the most popular cars in North America - with drivers keeping it for an average of nine years. Why is this number so impressive? Critics note that most vehicles boast a life-span of only seven years. This delivers a staggering 21% difference and it showcases the reputation that Ford has crafted, with its SUV revving past the competition (including the Toyota 4Runner, the Honda Odyssey, and Chevrolet Suburban).
We’re not surprised. The Expedition has always proven a top-seller on our lot - and the 2018 version is no exception. Boasting an eight-passenger frame, this SUV effortlessly accommodates families and adventurers alike. Its cavernous cabin hosts 104.6 cu.-ft of cargo space, allowing it to adapt to every need; while flat-folding seating yields custom configurations. A series of overhead and under-mounted consoles pair with cushion-back pockets to provide ample support; and roof-rack rails assure easy hauling, delivering more than 1,700 payload pounds. The entire platform is tailored for day-to-day storage… and that makes it a worthy addition to any mile.

The markers have long since faded - washed away by time and seasonal rains. You still try to follow them, though, squinting in vain at the road. Your head tilts in consideration, studying the lane and its imperceptible curve; and your car does the same, veering steadily over until…. You find yourself suddenly on the wrong side of the street.
The crisis is averted with a quick jerk of the steering wheel - but Ford suggests fusing your commutes with a less stressful method of protection. Consider the 2018 Expedition Limited and its Lane Keeping tech.
As the Chicago Sun Times explains, the 2018 Expedition Limited affords drivers greater security on the road. Its safety suite is bolstered by Lane Keeping Assistance - an intuitive program that maintains optimal positioning when traveling over 40 MPH. Body-mounted sensors scan both highway markers and vehicle pitch, assessing each through micro-second assessments. If the platform begins to stray, this system will automatically launch a dual-response strategy:
Notifications: audio and visual cues will be released, alerting the driver to the issue. These will be streamed via the eight-inch SYNC 3 console and will feature gridline instructions of how to proceed in the most effective manner.
Steering Adjustments: the column will be gently engaged, maneuvering the Expedition back toward its proper alignment. This promotes balanced handling and lessens the chance of a collision.
The Lane Keeping system enables drivers to safely respond to highway straying - branding this a perfect option for commuters and families alike. To learn more about this function contact our team today!
A new fascia dominates the crossover market - with Toyota, Chevrolet, and GMC forced to yield their sales crowns to the 2018 Expedition XLT. This Ford platform has been thoroughly refreshed, introducing drivers to the smooth performance they crave; and, as USA Today explains, this has translated into a dealer surge (more than 5,000 total units were tallied in June).
We’re not surprised. The 2018 Expedition XLT proves a seamless option for families, with its newly re-tuned suspension system allowing them to conquer the roughest roads with ease.
According to USA Today, the new XLT impresses on the backroads. Its fully-boxed frame sits on a multi-link independent suspension - which intuitively adapts to changing terrains through an available electronic limited-slip axle (this stiffens the chassis as needed to reduce friction). Front and rear stabilizer bars maintain a balanced ride; while traction control assesses torque demands, automatically sending bursts of power to the RWD to maximize grippage. Hill Descent technology improves performance on sharp inclines, regulating both speed and braking functions; and an optional trailer controller reinforces the steering column to promote more fluid responses when hauling heavy loads.
These technologies provide a smooth cabin experience - allowing passengers to conquer long hauls with confidence. The XLT has been tailored for all adventures, bringing Roll Stability Control precision to every mile.

Discover sterling style this summer - with the 2018 Expedition Platinum delivering a sleek new fascia. This Ford crossover sheds market conventions, emphasizing coupe-inspired lines and chic detailing from every angle. This brands it perfect for families seeking more than mere performance. Fuse your backroad adventures instead with premium design!
As Forbes explains, the 2018 Expedition Platinum will delight every fashion fan. Its sport-inspired frame (210-inches long, 84-inches wide, and 77-inches high) is chiseled with care, delivering curved C-Pillars and square fenders. Satin-finished aluminum crossbars follow the straight arch of the roof, while stainless steel running boards showcase the fluid character lines. An aluminum grille anchors the front, with LED headlamps flanking its sides; and a single bright-tipped exhaust perfectly frames the rear. The power mirrors are capped in metallic trims; solar-tinted glass defines the windows; and wheel-lips moldings add distinction to the 22-inch polished rims, creating a sleek effect.
The 2018 Expedition Platinum proves dynamic from every angle - with eight color options now available. Drivers can choose the perfect metallic tint (including Ruby Red, Silver Ingot, and White Gold) to complement the crossover’s chrome mesh inserts.
