I've been waiting a long time for information on the next Ford Expedition. My searches have returned the same results for the last year. In my opinion, the 2013 was a big letdown without even adding new engines. My wife wants a new vehicle and keeps talking about the Expedition (we had an 06 and she loved it). However, I'm worried about buying one just to see the next generation bow the next day. Isn't that how it goes?
So, here are my predictions for the next Expedition (hopefully the 2014 debuting this summer or fall):
1 - It retains the body-on-frame breeding of the F-150 instead of going unibody.
2 - It closely mirrors the F-150 and uses the same some of the same aluminum bodywork. (This may be wishful thinking.)
3 - It uses the same Ecoboost and 5.0L engines as the F-150 but will not carry the 6.2L or any diesel version.
4 - There will be some new colors but most of them will be carryovers.
5 - It will have the same HID headlamp options as the F-150.
Am I missing anything? Am I way off base?
Where's the most likely place to find reliable, early information about Ford's actual plans? I thought we'd at least be seeing spy shots by now.
