If the rumors appear to be true, the Ford automaker is working on the newest 2020 Ford Excursion. The new Excursion will be based on the body-on-frame platform and will share many similarities with the F-250 pickup truck. Inside the cabin, it will provide excellent space and be modernized with premium materials and equipment.
Engines and performances of the all-new 2020 Ford Excursion
When it comes to the engine of the all-new 2020 Ford Excursion, we have heard many rumors and unfortunately, there are no precise details or any confirmed information. So, for now, all the data about its powertrain is based on the latest speculations. On the other hand, what we can claim for sure, is that the new 2020 Ford Excursion is expected to get several types of engine beneath its hood and those should include gasoline and diesel units. Therefore, the Excursion is expected to get a range of engine options which power the current Expedition, F-150, and F-250 models.
Types of engine:
So, the new Ford will most likely get a 3.5-liter V-6 turbo engine which powers the new Expedition. This engine is expected to work with the new 10-speed automatic transmission which will probably result in much better fuel economy. The next unit in the offer will be a 6.2-liter V-8 engine. This one will be able to make 385 horses and 430 pound-feet of torque. Furthermore, the engine which powers the current F-150 model could also find its place beneath the hood of the upcoming Excursion. And this unit has the output of250 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque.
Moreover, according to some news, the manufacturer might also fit it with a new 7.0-liter DOHC engine which should be used by the new Ford F-150 Raptor. However, although it is not yet confirmed, and there is no specific information, this unit should be able to generate 450 horses and the torque of 500 lb-ft. As well, there should be one twin-turbo engine available and this one will be capable of making 375 ponies and 470 lb-ft of torque. The 10-speed automatic gearbox will most likely be standard for all the engines available.
The 2020 Ford Excursion will get a diesel engine too and it should be a 6.7-liter V-8 engine. This unit will be able to make 450 hp and even 925 pound-feet of torque. As for the towing capacity, we have heard the rumors that it will be able to tow up to 10,000 pounds which is great. However, the diesel unit could show even better results considering towing.
The exterior design of the 2020 Ford Excursion
In terms of exterior design, the carmaker still hasn’t revealed the precise information about its new look. However, we believe that the new 2020 Ford Excursion will e completely revised for a more modern and fresher look which will make it more competitive in the SUV market. So, the upcoming Excursion should be based on the F-250 pickup truck and will be the longest and the largest SUV in the brand’s lineup. It will use the body-on-frame platform as well.
When it comes to the external appearance, the Excursion will combine many styling cues with the Explorer model but will mostly be inspired by the F-250 like we have mentioned before. This time, we can expect revised both front and rear fascias which should get a new and more modern grille, headlamps, taillights, and more pronounced bumpers. So, the whole body will look more handsome, better proportioned, and with a more contemporary design.
The interior design of the 2020 Ford Excursion
The interior of the 2020 Ford Excursion will be very spacious and will have three rows of seats. So, it will be able to place up to seven passengers comfortably. The materials used in its design will be now more quality and there should be several color combinations to choose from depending on a trim level. The dashboard will be wide and will feature a larger touchscreen for the latest infotainment system. As for the cargo space, the Excursion will offer generous room. Speaking of the safety, we can expect many modern features. And those will include blind-spot monitor, traction control, several airbags, stability control, and many other items and optional packages.
Furthermore, it will also offer many other features such as a premium sound system, leather seats with ventilation, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated seats, a sunroof and so on.
Release date and expected price of the 2020 Ford Excursion
The precise date of the arrival of the 2020 Ford Excursion is not yet known to the public. However, based on our presumptions, it probably won’t be before the end of the next year, or in the beginning of 2020. The price is also not yet available, but it definitively won’t be cheap. For example, the Expedition model starts at around $50,000 so the Excursion should get a higher price.
