Ford cowboys up with new Expedition King Ranch and Platinum for 2020
Ford Motor Company has announced the addition of the King Ranch and Platinum trim levels to the Expedition lineup for the 2020 model year, just in time for the kickoff of the State Fair of Texas.
The high-end offerings will be on the top end of the 2020 Ford Expedition lineup, drawing their design and execution from Texas heritage and Ford's product heritage. The King Ranch model derives its name from Texas's King Ranch, a 825,000-acre property near Kingsville, Texas, that was settled in 1853.
As much as the models remind people of the past, they offer modern technology with the 2020 Ford Expedition King Ranch and 2020 Ford Expedition Platinum each coming with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 mobile devices, SYNC 3, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Ford Co-Pilot360, a suite of driver assistance and safety technologies.
Both new Expeditoins come standard with Ford Co-Pilot360, a suite of safty and driver assistance technologies, continuously controlled damping, 360-degree camera with split-view and front/rear washer, power-folding, heated sideview mirrors with turn-signal indicators, security approach lamps, and auto-dimming driver's side mirror.
