No More V8
Not long ago rigs such as the 2020 Ford Expedition Max would have had a big V8 under the hood, but times have changed. Under this hood resides a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine producing a plentiful 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque at 2250 rpm. The powerful V6 gets teamed with a smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission. With a heavy-duty trailer-towing package the Expedition Max can tow up to 9,000 pounds — so it’s not really missing the V8. The EPA fuel economy ratings for the 4WD Expedition Max are listed as 16 mpg city / 21 mpg highway / 18 mpg combined. We spent most of our time in city driving and averaged around 16.5 mpg, so the figures seem accurate.
