Ford shocked everybody when they announce their plan to go aluminum with their Ford F-150 model and it looks like they are not going to stop there as new report are suggesting that the Ford Expedition might also be heading down the same path as well.
We know that Ford is looking to take off some extra pounds from their larger model and the model that would benefit from the aluminum upgrade would be the Ford Explorer and the Ford Expedition. Since the Expedition is being sold at a relatively high price, that should help them offset the cost of the aluminum body.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Ford announces at the F-Series Super Duty production kickoff event that their Ford Expedition will be getting a new aluminum body. This should help improve the performance and fuel economy of the Expedition but we will have to wait and see if the improvement was worth all their effort.
The new aluminum Ford Expedition should be arriving in 2018.
