Trail Ready: 2020 Ford Expedition Limited FX4
Ford recently announced it is adding its FX4 off-road package to the higher-end 2020 Ford Expedition Limited for people who want to enjoy rugged terrain without sacrificing refinement, comfort or convenience.
According to a press release from Ford, “The Expedition Limited FX4 off-road package brings off-road ruggedness and capability to the company’s seven-passenger SUV. Nearly 20 percent of Expedition owners use their vehicle for off-road adventures, with 45 percent taking their SUV hunting, camping or fishing, according to MaritzCX market research. And with an available heavy-duty trailer package, the standard-wheelbase Expedition Limited FX4 can tow up to 9,200 pounds—more than any other vehicle in its class.” All good reasons to check out this version of the Expedition if off-road excursions are in your family’s future.
Further enhancements of the 2020 Ford Expedition Limited FX4 off-road package standard equipment include off-road-tuned shocks, all-new electronic limited-slip rear differential, skid plates, side steps and FX4 badging
Performance was not forgotten, nor was off-road competency, as the Expedition FX4 powertrain has a 375-horsepower 3.5L EcoBoost engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission and a two-speed electronically controlled four-wheel-drive transfer case with neutral towing capability. A 3.73:1 electronic limited-slip differential and heavy-duty engine radiator help handle the hardest off-road trails.
In addition to its upgraded off-road prowess and underbody protection, the Expedition Limited FX4 brings upscale appointments, too. There’s a 360-degree camera system with split-view that enables a better view of the surrounding area for the driver and passengers. Leather-trimmed seating and wood accents are part of the deal for the Limited series, along with necessary rubber floor liners front and rear to protect the interior from the great outdoors.
The new 2020 Expedition Limited FX4 is now available in the standard Expedition and extended-length Expedition MAX versions.
