2018 Ford Expedition Fuel Economy
With its spacious and comfortable interior and a multitude of advanced multimedia and connectivity features, the 2018 Ford Expedition is a great vehicle for those long trips with family and friends. While full-size SUVs are not typically known for their efficiency, the new Expedition defies convention with its best-in-class fuel economy ratings.
The 2018 Expedition is offered in either 4×2 or 4×4 models. The 4×2 version gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 17 city/24 hwy/20 combined mpg, while the 4×4 version gets 17 city/22 hwy/19 combined mpg. While all of the Expedition’s full-size SUV competitors have a combined fuel economy in the teens (e.g. 15 combined mpg for the Toyota Sequioa), the Expedition 4×2 is the only vehicle in its segment to get at least 20 combined mpg. The 2018 Expedition’s high fuel economy can be credited to its lightweight and efficient 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, which delivers impressive power with an output of 375-hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, as well as its smooth and efficient 10-speed automatic transmission.
