Ford hasn’t just dropped another full-size SUV, though. It’s also introduced the Expedition FX4, its Suburban Z71 rival. The Expedition FX4 includes three areas of improvement: drivetrain, suspension, wheels and tires and protection, according to Ford Authority.
The Expedition FX4 includes an electronic limited-slip rear differential and a 3.73:1 ratio to help maintain traction in off-road situations. Off-road dampers, thicker wheels and all-terrain tires and skid plates are all present to help the Expedition earn its FX4 badge.
The recently-revealed Expedition also out-muscles the Suburban with its tow ratings. The Expedition can tow up to 9,300 pounds, a whopping 3,000 more than the Chevrolet Suburban.
Does the Expedition FX4 have what it takes to challenge Chevrolet’s Suburban Z71? We’ll soon find out; the SUV will launch this coming fall.
