Ford today announced the new 2015 Ford Expedition featuring a 3.5-liter, direct-injected twin-turbocharged EcoBoost engine usually found in Ford F-Series vehicles. The new fullsize SUV will debut today at the 2014 DFW Auto Show in Dallas, Texas.

The 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, which will be the only engine offered in the new Expedition fleet in North America results to a more powerful and fuel-efficient Expedition. The new truck will also be equipped with a six-speed SelecShift automatic transmission in manual mode allowing the driver to use a shift-mounted rocker switch to choose the desired gear. Using a suite of sensors that detect 46 unique body, steering and braking inputs, the advanced suspension monitors body motion and then adjusts Expedition’s damping system in milliseconds to manage the vehicle’s natural body motion. A vehicle with poor damping feels as if it is bouncing on its suspension springs; continuously controlled damping recognizes the weight of the vehicle, steering feedback and road undulations and then reacts accordingly, helping to control body motion so passengers experience an orderly, comfortable ride.
