Ford unveils 2019 Explorer and 2019 Expedition special editions

640 × 480
Last week was the State Fair of Texas. An event at which Ford elected to release some special editions of two of its best-selling SUVs, the 2019 Explorer and 2019 Expedition. The 2019 Ford Explorer had the Limited Luxury and Desert Copper editions while the 2019 Ford Expedition had the Stealth and Texas editions.

All four special editions offer something as little different from the norm and, like most special editions, adds a little exclusivity to ownership. They are mostly cosmetic additions but the Expedition gets a couple of feature upgrades too.

The 2019 Ford Explorer Limited Luxury edition
The 2019 Ford Explorer Limited Luxury edition adds limited 20” aluminium wheels, upgraded leather seats with massage function and leather trim within the cabin.

The 2019 Ford Explorer Desert Copper edition
The 2019 Ford Explorer Desert Copper edition offers different 20” aluminium wheels, new black trimmed leather upholstery with copper inserts and stitching.

The 2019 Ford Expedition Stealth edition
The 2019 Ford Expedition Stealth edition adds black 22” wheels, black trim and accenting on the inside and out, a panoramic sunroof and continuously controlled damping suspension.

The 2019 Ford Expedition Texas edition
The 2019 Ford Expedition Texas edition uses the Max version and comes with Lone Star badging, 22” wheels, panoramic sunroof, heady duty trailer towing package and active parking assist.

2019 Ford Explorer
The 2019 Ford Explorer is an excellent SUV that is ideal for family life. It drives well, has some good engines, stable chassis and lots of space for people and cargo. It’s a good all-rounder that works well in most situations and is ideal for those who don’t want a full size SUV such as the Expedition.

The design is still modern despite having been around for a while. With strong engines, a very slick transmission and the option of AWD, it’s ideal for Canada. Especially if you spec it with heated seats!

The three engines all compare well to the competition. The 3.5-litre V6 produces 290 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque, the 2.3-litre turbo four cylinder delivers 280 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque and the 3.5-litre twin turbo V6 delivers 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. All use Ford’s smooth six speed automatic transmission.

With a composed ride, excellent suspension and nicely balanced platform, the Explorer is stable on any surface. While more comfortable on the road than on the rough, it can still handle tough surfaces if you need it to.

Whether you want one of these special editions or not, both the Explorer and Expedition can be found at Northway Ford Lincoln, 388 King George Road Brantford ON N3S 3N2.
