Next season is bringing the big changes. The 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid is surely one of them. A full-size plug-in hybrid SUV is definitely something that you can’t see every day. Nowadays, there are only a few of these vehicles. The future will be full of all kinds of hybrids, and the Expedition is among the first crossovers to get there.
The 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid will have a company. The same company is a holder of Lincoln group. Expedition sibling from the luxury class, Navigator, will also go the same way. Similar drivetrains are possible. Differences are in design and premium features, which is the trademark of Lincoln Navigator. But, Ford’s fans shouldn’t be worried. Their favorite full-size crossover will have plenty of it to show off.
2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid Drivetrain
The only certain thing we know is that 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid will get a conventional system. So, it is not going to be the plug-in version, but the regular hybrid. Also, we can easily predict that the partly-electric Expedition will share the drivetrain with a Ford F-150 hybrid. We already wrote a full review of this legendary truck getting a new engine. Well, it is very likely to see it as well on the 2019 Expedition.
An interesting thing about this hybrid system is that we still don’t have any hint about specs. Also, we are missing information about volume, outputs, electric batteries. The only sure thing is a functionality of the entire system. Thanks to the large battery which will fit under the vehicle, the 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid will have enough power to supply TV, laptop, or other devices. The generator will still be strong enough to support the drive system with energy.
2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid Styling
The upcoming full-size crossover will use a brand-new architecture. To improve fuel economy, Ford Expedition will use more aluminum. It will be lighter than before, and the SUV will keep performance numbers. The same body will keep the hybrid drivetrain. Well, slight modifications are needed, but nothing radical between this and regular model will be changed. So, the 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid is powerful and bold, with a distinctive exterior design.
Inside the cabin, the 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid will have unique infotainment and entertaining system. Besides this, all other parts will be the same. Power seats, air conditioning, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard. A hybrid model could get a navigation, and few extra accessories we can see on higher-end trims of the base Expedition. Safety is another thing we shouldn’t worry about.
2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid Release Date and Price
The launch of 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid heavily depends on Ford F-150 hybrid truck. It will set the release date of the full-size crossover. On the other hand, it is possible to see the 2019 Expedition Hybrid first, as a test mule for the pickup. The latest rumors are pretty confident that the crossover is coming next year but as 2020 model.
As we guess the release date we can do the same with price. It is impossible to predict how much the 2019 Ford Expedition Hybrid will cost.
