2018 Expedition FX4 Off-Road Package

July 25th, 2017 by

Expedition FX4Did you know that more than 20% of Expedition owners use their SUV for off-road adventure?

They certainly do! That’s why Ford has introduced the all-new 2018 Expedition FX4 Off-Road Package.

Expedition FX4 Off Road Package

With this package, the Expedition becomes the most off-road-capable Expedition ever! It’s been redesigned with a high-strength steel frame and an all-new high-strength aluminum-alloy body. Using these advanced materials, engineers saved up to 300 pounds. That weight savings was reinvested into the vehicle in the form of new technology and new features.

“The FX4 Off-Road package delivers off-road driving confidence,” said Mike Kipley, Expedition vehicle engineering manager. “The technology we’re using works to adapt to different driving conditions so customers can enjoy the adventure without worry.”

Expedition FX4What’s included?

FX4 Off-Road Package includes the following:

  • Patented electronic limited-slip rear differential
    • This helps to improve off-road performance in low traction situations.
  • Off-road-tuned shocks more stiffly tuned to keep wheels in contact with the road.
  • All-terrain tires with thicker sidewalls
    • This maintains a smooth ride over rough terrain.
  • Seven different skid plates that serve as underbody armor and protect critical areas.
  • Unique 18-inch Magnetic Metallic-painted cast-aluminum wheels
  • Chrome running boards
  • FX4 badging on the liftgate and front fender
  • New rubber floor liners featuring deep side sills
    • These can be removed and cleaned of any mud, sand or water.
