2020 Ford Expedition Adds Two Models: Expedition King Ranch and Upgraded Platinum Model
Ford looks to take advantage of American’s love of larger SUVs.
Ford revealed two new models for the 2020 model year—Expedition King Ranch® and an upgraded Platinum model with new materials and high-end finishes.
2020 Ford Expedition King Ranch
Expedition King Ranch sports unique style inside and out. Elegant Stone Gray paint on the grille mesh, power-deployable running boards, rear bumper skid plate, trailer hitch cover, roof-rack side rails and side mirror caps immediately distinguish it as a King Ranch. Other exterior highlights include body color-painted upper bumpers and Stone Gray-painted lower bumpers, and 22-inch six-spoke painted machine-finished aluminum wheels with dark tarnish-painted pockets. King Ranch badging – mirroring the ranch’s distinctive “Running W” brand – appears on the body sides, liftgate and wheel center caps.
Inside, the use of premium Del Rio leather extends over all three rows of seats, and more.
Ebony Del Rio leather covers the door trim while the leather-wrapped steering wheel features intricate Kingsville stitching adding satisfying texture to the touch. Del Rio trim on the console is accented by the distinctive grain of Ziricote wood veneer. The King Ranch “Running W” logo is emblazoned into the seatbacks of all three rows. The second-row is highlighted by power-folding, tip-and-slide captain’s chairs with perforated inserts.
2020 Ford Expedition Platinum
Expedition Platinum is updated with new 22-inch wheels and new premium finishes. Leather upgrades highlight the interior, including an instrument panel topper wrapped in leather, plus front door trim rollover and console rails.
Platinum also includes premium features such as leather-trimmed front- and second-row seats with perforated seat inserts and quilted bolsters, multi-contour front seats with Active Motion, and Wollsdorf leather-wrapped steering wheel with Pecan stitching.
