When paired with 2.7L EcoBoost / 3.3L V6 naturally aspirated engines, the base models are designed to return about 22 miles a gallon and when fitted with 5.0L V8, it gies 21mpg for 3.5L EcoBoost to about 19mpg combined.
- 2020 Expedition: Considered to be Ford SUVs largest model, it has been redesigned entirely for MY2018 after 10 years of running on same platform.

This full size, 4th generation SUV can be found in two varying sizes, namely, the Expedition Max having 131.6” wheelbase and regular Expedition with long wheelbase of 122.5”. Both are spacious, heavy and tend to share everything, ranging from drivetrain to trim level configurations. Every individual Ford Expedition has EcoBoost V6 mill of 3.5L irrespective of its trim level or wheelbase. Engine can create 375HP & 470 lb. ft. torque across most range.
- 2020 Explorer: It was last in 2016 that this large sized mid-sized crossover SUV was updated by being provided with mid-cycle facelift. For MY 2020, it is to be given extensive overhaul. It was at 2019 Detroit auto show that the 6 generation all new Ford Explorer had made official debut and this spring, it was made available to shoppers. It is based upon Lincoln Aviator and shares its CD6 platform with it. However, it is a bit expensive.
