KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Since its initial release a little less than two decades ago, the Ford Expedition has become one of the most popular eight-passenger SUVs on the market. There have been a number of generations of the Expedition, and as the third-generation Expedition is in its eighth year of production, Ford has significantly updated the full-size SUV for the 2015 model year.

To assist consumers in researching some of the updated features of the 2015 Ford Expedition, Matt Ford, an automotive dealership located near Kansas City, Mo., has highlighted the recently-announced and highly anticipated features of the upcoming SUV. To make it even easier for consumers to understand the new additions to the SUV, Matt Ford has also highlighted the most impressive features of the 2014 Ford Expedition.

In the past, the Ford Expedition was only offered with a 5.4-liter Flex Fuel V8 engine. The 310-horsepower satisfied power-hungry Expedition enthusiasts, however, the large displacement engine was not appealing to consumers seeking higher fuel economy numbers. Ford has addressed that issue for the 2015 model by offering a new engine and allowing the SUV to cater to a broader range of consumers.

The 2015 Ford Expedition will be made available with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine. While the engine is new to the Expedition, it is not new to Ford's powertrain lineup. The engine has been found in the nose of the best-selling Ford F-150 for years, and as its engineering has already proven to be popular with the public, the engine is sure to appeal to buyers in the market for a more fuel efficient full-size SUV.

The updated SUV will offer the same impressive seating and storing capabilities of the past 2014 Ford Expedition. Making a return for the refreshed model is the innovative power-folding third row seat which allows the interior of the SUV to be easily converted to accommodate cargo. Consumers are also sure to appreciate that the liftgate is also powered to provide hands-free access to the cargo area.

Those interested in discovering more about the capabilities of the currently-available 2014 Ford Expedition or the significantly updated 2015 Ford Expedition are encouraged to visit the Matt Ford website, where the complete model overviews can be accessed. Questions about either of the models can be directed to the dealership's expert sales staff, which can be reached by phone at 816-650-3136, or through the Matt Ford website at
