by Staff Report

2015 Ford Expedition offers drivers comprehensive safety systems that include AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™, Safety Canopy® side-curtain airbags, SOS Post-Crash Alert System, tire pressure monitoring system and traction control







The 2015 Ford Expedition earned a five-star Overall Vehicle Score

from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the U.S.

government’s highest possible overall rating.



The New Car Assessment Program is the National Highway Traffic Safety

Administration’s evaluation program for new automobile designs. It was

established to test for performance against safety threats. It includes

tests for front and side impacts.



“The 2015 Expedition now has driver-assist technology features that

are new to the nameplate,” said Steve Kenner, director, Ford Global

Automotive Safety Office. “These technology upgrades make Expedition the

full-size utility vehicle for customers who want capability, style and

modern conveniences.”



Safety and driver-assist features



Expedition has a myriad of standard safety features aimed at

protecting drivers and occupants, as well as driver-assist features that

are new to the vehicle.



Standard safety features include AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™, Safety Canopy® side-curtain airbags, SOS Post-Crash Alert System, tire pressure monitoring system and traction control.



The 2015 model debuts driver-assist technologies to the Expedition

nameplate, like available radar-based Blind Spot Information System with

cross-traffic alert. Using sensor-based radar technology, BLIS® can help detect when a vehicle is in a driver’s blind spot and flashes a warning light in the appropriate sideview mirror.



Cross-traffic alert uses radar to help detect vehicles approaching

from the side when a driver is slowly backing out of a parking spot or

driveway. When a vehicle is detected, an audible warning sounds and a

visual cue will be issued in the message center.



Other new technologies include a standard rearview camera, keyless

entry with push-button start, and front and rear parking sensors.



Stylish, powerful, fuel-efficient



The 2015 Expedition is the most powerful and fuel-efficient

Expedition yet, offering customers a full-size utility vehicle with a

stylish design and fresh interiors across a diverse lineup that includes

a new Platinum trim level.



The 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6, the only

engine available for Expedition in North America, generates 365

horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque, and with an EPA-estimated rating

of 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway with two-wheel-drive. Actual mileage

will vary. Expedition also offers best-in-class maximum cargo space for

the extended-length version, and available best-in-class towing of up to

9,200 pounds when properly equipped. It all adds up to a truly useful

utility vehicle.



Ford was the No. 1-selling utility brand in the United States for

2014, making for the fourth straight year the company has maintained its

utility vehicle leadership in America.
