DETROIT – Ford's new 2018 Expedition includes an aluminum body, 10-speed transition and improved towing capacity -- and that's just the boring stuff. Check out the tech built into the new SUV: 

Wireless charging; Expedition is Ford’s first vehicle to feature this system, which allows customers to place compatible mobile devices on an integrated charging pad conveniently located in the front center console

Wi-Fi hotspot supports as many as 10 devices at once, up to 50 feet away from the vehicle

Dual-headrest rear seat entertainment system provides a next-generation video experience that allows passengers to view their home cable programming on either of two video screens or hand-held devices
SYNC 3, with both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ capability, allows drivers to stay connected on the move

SYNC Connect lets owners connect with the vehicle remotely using FordPass® to start, lock, unlock and locate their vehicle from anywhere, while also allowing access to important vehicle diagnostic information

Power for passengers in every row, with four 12-volt power points, six USB chargers and a 110-volt power outlet that lets passengers stay charged and connected

12-speaker B&O PLAY premium audio system perfected by acoustic engineers for a sound experience even audiophiles will appreciate

Advanced cargo manager with an adjustable shelf behind the third row lets owners create a storage space customized to whatever they’re hauling; even when parked on a hill, cargo won’t roll out the back of Expedition when the liftgate is opened

Panoramic Vista Roof spans two rows, a feature not offered by any competitor

Driving features, including automatic parallel parking, 360-degree camera and adaptive cruise control for stop-and-go traffic

Tech aside, the new Expedition shed 300 pounds from its previous model, thanks to the aluminum body and a high-strength steel frame. It's the second Ford vehicle to get the aluminum treatment, after the F-Series pickup. 

The Expedition goes on sale this fall. Pricing hasn't been released. It will be built in Kentucky.
