New Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator

Tuesday, May 14th 2013. | Ford Expedition, Lincoln Navigator, News

Ford’s Expedition and its platform-mate the Lincoln Navigator have gone without a major update since 2007. They are still sporting the aging 5.4L Ford modular V8. Sources have confirmed that Ford will be moving to its 360hp / 380ft-lb 5.0L V8 for the Ford Expedition and possibly its 3.5L 365hp / 410ft-lb V6 EcoBoost. But this engine, Ford says, may be reserved for the more upscale Lincoln Navigator. Both trucks will also be available with a base 3.7L V6 putting out 302 horsepower and 278 ft lb’s of torque. All of these engines, as most of you know, can be found in the current generation of Ford F-150 trucks.

With the release of the 2015 Ford F-150 being relatively close. I can’t help but wonder if this news could change significantly. As Ford is rumored to be prepping an all new EcoBoost engine with start/stop technology and will also have a new I5 3.2L diesel available in its bag of tricks in the near future. I can’t help but wonder if the new Expedition and Navigator will get these engines.

But, Ford has held back engine upgrades in the past, by that I mean, they have a tendency to release new platforms a year ahead of new engine technology. Like they did with the current  generation F-150. For 2010 it still came with a modular 5.4L V8 and was upgraded the following model year with Ford’s new engine line-up. We could see the same for a new generation of 2014 or 2015 Expeditions and Navigators.
