The 2017 Ford Expedition Platinum is the last model year of the full-size SUV's third production cycle. Understandably, Ford made no changes for the 2017 model year. The Platinum is the top-level trim available on the Expedition, a position it has held since it was introduced in the 2015 model year.
The 2017 Ford Expedition Platinum is a three-row SUV that can seat up to eight passengers. The driver's and front passenger bucket seats come with 10-way power adjustability, and each seat can be heated and cooled. The second row also can be heated, and it consists of a 40/20/40 split bench-style seat that lets you pull its center section forward almost 11 inches for easy access from the first row. The PowerFold® third-row seat is a 60/40 split-folding bench. All seats are perforated leather-trimmed. The 2017 model has a total passenger volume of 160.3 cubic feet, with cargo room that is measured at up to 108.3 cubic feet behind the first row. For further comfort and convenience, the new Platinum crossover includes cruise control, keyless entry with push-button engine start, a rearview camera, remote vehicle start, dual-zone automatic climate control, memory system for the driver's seat, power-adjustable brake and accelerator pedals, a power moonroof, auto dimming on the rearview mirror, and steering wheel-mounted controls. Infotainment is anchored by the SYNC 3® voice-activated communications system, which includes a capacitive touchscreen and Siri® Eyes Free for controlling the stereo unit with an iOS mobile device. The stereo itself is a 12-speaker, 390-watt Sony® system, which includes HD Radio™, a single-disc CD player with MP3 playback capability, and a six-month subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.
For the 2017 year, the Ford Expedition Platinum rides on 20-inch polished aluminum wheels. At the front are halogen projector-beam headlights and LED fog lights. Rack side rails and crossbars on top of the SUV provide additional luggage carrying capability. The chrome power folding, power adjustable heated mirrors at the sides come with security approach lamps for illumination when pressing the key fob, as well as auto dimming on the driver's side. Power-deployable stainless-steel running boards extend for assistance in entering into and alighting from the Expedition. And at the back is a Class IV trailer hitch receiver for towing capability.
Strengthened by gas-charged shocks and stabilizer bars, the Platinum Expedition has a four-wheel independent suspension. The rear suspension in particular has a multi-link design to let each rear wheel handle harsh road conditions on its own terms. (The front goes with the short- and long-arm, or SLA, design.) Accompanying the suspension is electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering permit precise turns. Power four-wheel disc brakes ensure shortened stopping distances-with anti-lock braking to prevent wheel lock-up when pressing the brake pedal, electronic brake-force distribution for effective sharing of stopping power among the wheels, and brake assist for added stopping force when needed.
Powertrain and Safety
The new Ford Expedition Platinum is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6, which supplies 365 horsepower at 5,000 RPM and 420 lb-ft of torque at 2,250 RPM. It is hitched to a 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift® technology, which enables you to choose between automatic and manual gear shifting. Rear-wheel drive is standard, although you can opt for the Control Trac® four-wheel drive system for enhanced traction. The Expedition is notably the first Ford vehicle to come with Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) system, which allows you to choose from three driving settings: Comfort, Normal, and Sport. Fuel economy is estimated at 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, and maximum towing capability with the trailer hitch receiver is measured at 6,600 lbs. The new Ford Expedition Platinum has dual front impact airbags facing the driver and front passenger, dual side impact airbags installed on the front seats, and a pair of side curtain airbags installed on the roof and flanking all three rows. The SOS Post Crash Alert System™ automatically sounds the horn and activates the emergency flashers in the aftermath of an accident, AdvanceTrac® with electronic roll mitigation keeps you on the intended driving path, MyKey® to program parental driving controls, and a sensor-based forward and reverse sensing system aids the rearview camera in providing an enhanced viewing perspective. Also included on this trim is hill start assist, which prevents the vehicle from rolling down a hill when you start driving from a parked position. The SecuriLock® system combines remote keyless entry, engine immobilizer, perimeter alarm, and a keyless entry keypad to keep would-be car thieves away.
