Ford Expedition King Ranch Edition Returns

Expedition King Ranch Edition

Ford recently revealed that there will be two new models for the Ford Expedition for the 2020 model year, including the Expedition King Ranch Edition. The other will be an upgraded Platinum model with new materials and high-end finishes.

Large SUVs have continued to be appealing to customers all over the U.S. and there has been no exception too that when it comes to the Expedition. Through August, sales of the Expedition in the U.S. were up 56 percent compared to this period last year.

The addition of the King Ranch version aims to build on that success by bringing its legacy of hard work and family traditions. The King Ranch adds another high-end option for Expedition buyers with a unique style inside and out.

Stone Gray paint on the stylings of the vehicle make it immediately identifiable as a King ranch, along with the King Ranch badging that appears on the body sides, liftgate and wheel center caps. Inside the King Ranch Expedition is the use of Del Rio leather that extends over all three rows of seats, as well as Del Rio door and console trims.

The second row includes power-folding, tip-and-slide captain’s chairs with perforated inserts. The Expedition King Ranch Edition also comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist driver-assist technology, and various other safety features for maximum comfort and confidence.

There’s no truck out there quite like the Ford Expedition King Ranch Edition. Explore its luxurious interior at Robbie Roberson Ford!
