DALLAS, Sept. 25, 2019 – Aiming to continue meeting growing demand for Ford Expedition, Ford today reveals two new models for the 2020 model year – Expedition King Ranch® and an upgraded Platinum model with new materials and high-end finishes.

Large SÚVs continue to appeal to customers across the Ú.S. Through August, Ú.S. sales of Expedition for 2019 were up 56 percent versus the same period last year – the best eight-month start for the nameplate in more than a decade. The addition of a new King Ranch version aims to build on that success.

2020 Ford Expedition King Ranch'The King Ranch name carries with it a legacy of hard work that defines the American ranching lifestyle, with the heritage and family traditions Ford Expedition represents,' said Andrew Kernahan, Expedition chief engineer. 'It's a great addition to the lineup, growing Expedition's appeal and personality in Texas as well as with customers across the Ú.S. looking for western-inspired style and timeless design.'

Today, approximately one in five Expedition buyers opts for the top-end Platinum model, while about six in 10 choose either a Platinum or a Limited model.

Expedition King Ranch – which first debuted in 2005, following the Ford F-Series King Ranch in 1999 – grows the range of high-end choices.


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.
