Ford Reintroduces Expedition King Ranch Edition As Sales Surge


Ford is bringing back the iconic King Ranch badge on the all-new 2020 Ford Expedition. It’s making a return after being away from the lineup since 2017 and extends Ford’s 20-year partnership with the famed Texas Ranch that started back in 2005. The re-introduction comes as Expedition sales surge. Ford says U.S. sales through August this year were up 56 percent versus the same period last year – the best eight-month start for the nameplate in more than a decade.

Expedition King Ranch – which first debuted in 2005, following the Ford F-Series King Ranch in 1999 – grows the range of high-end choices. It’s available on Expedition standard-wheelbase, as well as Expedition MAX extended-wheelbase. It features three rows of seats trimmed in Del Rio leather; exterior highlights include Stone Gray accent paint, power-deployable running boards and 22-inch wheels with King Ranch center caps. Of course the ranch’s distinctive “Running W” brand appears on the body sides, liftgate and wheel center caps. The King Ranch “Running W” logo is emblazoned into the seatbacks of all three rows. The second-row is highlighted by power-folding, tip-and-slide captain’s chairs with perforated inserts.


As with Platinum models, King Ranch comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot360™ Assist driver-assist technology, continuously controlled damping, 360-degree camera with split-view and front and rear washers, power-folding, heated sideview mirrors with turn signal indicators, security approach lamps and auto-dimming driver’s side mirror.

The 2020 Expedition also offers more standard technology, including FordPass Connect, with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 10 mobile devices. SYNC 3 is also included which features compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Glad to see Ford has decided to bring back the King Ranch edition to the Expedition line. I was disappointed when it was not brought forward in the 2018 make over. I have a 2015 Expedition King Ranch EL and love it. The King Ranch interior and exterior appointments really stand out. The cargo and towing capabilities of this vehicle are impressive when used for trips and weekend jaunts as well as for a daily driver.
