Under the hood of the Expedition Limited FX4 is the same 3.5-liter gasoline engine with 381 horsepower and 470 Nm of torque. The unit works in conjunction with a 10-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive with a two-stage transfer case. “Off-road” modifications put electronically controlled rear differential. The maximum mass of the towed trailer is 4173 kilograms.
Ford marketers believe that the FX4’s performance, based on the popular mid-range Limited, will allow customers to “enjoy the rough terrain without giving up luxury and comfort.” At the start of Expedition sales, the FX4 package was available only for the base version of the XLT, which does not have a leather interior, wood inserts in the interior, three-zone climate control, auto start and advanced electrical adjustments.
