Ford Releases 4 Special-Edition SUVs

Ford Motor Company has revealed four special-edition SUVs for the 2019 model year, models that provide more premium options across Ford’s lineup of large SUVs.

Ford introduced the models at this year’s State Fair of Texas, a state which is Ford’s biggest market for largest SUVs. These models — the Ford Expedition Stealth Edition, Ford Expedition Texas Edition, Ford Explorer Limited Luxury Edition and Ford Explorer Desert Copper Edition — provide stunning aesthetic enhancements along with an offering of luxury features not available in traditional trim packages.

The Ford Expedition Stealth Edition uses black accessories to create a sleek, upscale version of Ford’s largest SUV. These accessories include 22-inch premium black-painted aluminum wheels as well as a grille, mirror caps, roof rails, running boards, rear bumper skid plate, hitch cover and other features all in gloss-black.

Everything is biggest in Texas, and the Ford Expedition Texas Edition is no exception. This model features Texas Edition badging and 22-inch wheels on top of the Cargo Package, Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package and enhanced active park assist features that come with the existing Special Edition Package for Limited Models.

The Ford Explorer Limited Luxury Edition tacks on even more luxury features to the vehicle’s Limited series. Customers who order the Limited Luxury Edition will get 20-inch premium painted machined aluminum wheels, Nirvana leather seats with micro-perforation, multi-contour seats with Active Motion, a leather steering wheel, door trim with leather inserts and chrome mirror caps.

The Ford Explorer Desert Copper Edition builds upon the Explorer XLT model with 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, Ebony Black leather-trimmed first- and second-row seats, a copper-highlighted interior and Ebony Black vinyl-third row seats that also have copper accents.

Ford says the new offerings on their two largest SUV models fit trends in the expanding SUV market. Over the past six years, the company’s SUV sales in the United States have increased by 37 percent, with Ford selling just under 800,000 SUVs in 2017.

“People want SUVs, they’ve told us that,” said Craig Patterson, Ford’s large SUV marketing manager. “Whether an adventure-minded individual, a couple who needs room to haul home improvement supplies or a family loading up for a trip across the country, SUVs are in demand. Ford wants to have an SUV available that caters to any circumstance.

The four special edition models will be available for order later in 2018.
