How the New FX4 Off-Road Package Helps the 2018 Ford Expedition Conquer Any Terrain

The new Ford Expedition FX4 Off-Road Package features a slew of upgrades and enhancements to help your 2018 Ford Expedition conquer any terrain. This impressive list of off-road features includes a patented electronic limited-slip rear differential, off-road-tuned shocks, all-terrain tires, seven different skid plates, fully unique 18-inch Magnetic Metallic painted cast-aluminum wheels, chrome running boards, FX4 badging on the liftgate and front fender and new rubber floor liners. The off-road feature that impresses us the most is the patented electronic limited-slip rear differential. This exciting new feature optimizes off-road performance in low traction conditions by automatically varying power output side-to-side depending on which wheel needs additional traction support. This new feature also helps your new Expedition tow more than ever thanks to 3.73:1 gearing. We’re also excited about the seven different skid plates as they create the underbody armor of your 2018 Expedition. The skid plates include a new sand shield, a chin spoiler, steel plates and more.

How Does the FX4 Off-Road Package Work in Conjunction with the All-New Terrain Management System?

The new FX4 Off-Road Package also works in conjunction with the 2018 Expedition’s Terrain Management System by allowing you to choose between seven different drive modes that help your Expedition traverse all road conditions and terrains. The drive modes are Normal, Sport, Tow/Haul, Eco, Grass/Gravel/Snow, Sand and Mud/Rut.
