Car competition in the SUV and crossover segments seems to be getting fiercer day by day. This certainly makes car manufacturers to continue to improve in order to produce more interesting innovations for their SUV line. One car manufacturer that seems quite concerned with this is Ford. The automotive manufacturer from the United States is known to have just introduced the latest generation of full-size SUV which is one of its flagship cars. This new SUV is known to carry the name Ford Expedition. Ford itself even confidently claims that the latest Ford Expedition will offer more features that will further support driver comfort compared to full-size SUVs made by other car manufacturers.
The Ford Expedition is a full-size SUV manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Introduced in 1996 as a replacement for the Ford Bronco, the Expedition was placed between the smaller Ford Explorer and the larger Ford Excursion, but since 2005 it has been Ford's biggest SUV. The current Expedition is based on the Ford F-150 pickup. Known internally at Ford as the UN93,
the first generation Expedition was developed under the UN93 program from 1993 to 1996, headed by chief engineer Dale Claudepierre at a cost of $1.3 billion (US). Initial planning began in 1991 parallel to PN96 F-Series development, prior to the UN93 program fully being approved in 1993.
Styling approval was completed in early 1993 (3-1/2 years ahead of 1996 production) under design chief Bob Aikins, with the UN93 design being frozen by September 1993, at 34 months prior to July 1996 production commencement. Ford launched the largest of its SUVs in the Manila International Auto Show 2018, which happened on April 6, 2019. The biggest change to the platform was an all-aluminum chassis that saved weight over its previous iteration.
The Ford Expedition price in the Philippines starts at P4,479,000.00. The lowest price is the Ford Expedition 4x4 Limited EL, ranging all the way up to the Ford Expedition 4x4 Limited EL with Bucket Seats priced at P4,612,000.00.
