The upcoming 2021 Ford Expedition FX Off-Road Package will be optional on the Limited trim level. Moreover, this package is available on both the Expedition and Expedition Max variants. Before that, a package was available on the XLT trim level. However, Limited trim fits better this off-road package.
Logically, Blue Oval will introduce more luxury to this package because of the Expedition Limited is a premium SUV. The reason behind this move is the latest introduction of 2021 Chevy Suburban and Tahoe models. According to the latest reports, two in five Expedition’s buyers are opting for the FX Off-Road package.
2021 FX Off-Road Package Adds Better Off-Road Experience
The upcoming 2021 Ford Expedition FX Off-Road Package will get more equipment, and it will offer a better off-roading experience. Everything starts with new skid plates, including the new sand shield that protects the engine’s turbochargers. Other plates are protecting the transmission, transfer case and the fuel tank.
Under the bumpers, you can find a new chin spoiler, and thanks to that, the front bumper will be changed. Whatsoever, it is shorter than on the current model. That styling cue will provide a better approach angle. To the sides, the FX4 package adds more chrome trims, especially on the running boards.
How Does the Interior look?
On the inside, the 2021 Ford Expedition FX Off-Road Package is mostly a carryover. However, switching from XLT to a Limited trim level, this package comes with more luxury. Leather seats are offered as standard. Moreover, plenty of wood accents are providing a real sense of luxury. Expedition offers a standard Ford Co-Pliot360 safety suite.
Moreover, this suite is getting new blind-spot monitors, a rearview camera, and rear cross-traffic alert. Limited model already offers adaptive cruise control and voice-activated navigation. Furthermore, a stop-and-go system is available, along with the park assist. Lastly, Ford’s Pro Trailer Backup Assist is in the offer too.
Powerful V6 Engine Remains
Nothing will change under the hood. A 3.5-liter V6 is still a standard engine option. Moreover, it generates 380 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. At its best, the 2021 Ford Expedition FX Off-Road Package can tow up to 9,200 pounds. Moreover, this SUV comes with a 10-speed automatic gearbox.
However, some mechanical upgrades will happen. First of all, the new electronic limited-slip differential is available. Blue Oval will introduce 18-inch metallic aluminum rims and new 32-inch all-terrain tires.
