So how does the now model compare? Well for starters, the exterior design language has been updated to 2017 standards – or at least current-gen Ford standards, while maintaining a boxed shape and straight lines . The styling is arguably much more elegant and once you step foot inside, you should definitely feel more in touch with today’s fast-paced world.
The new Ford Expedition is only a tad larger than the outgoing model – several inches wider and longer, with a slightly lower roof – but not obviously so. The beltline also sits a bit higher, reducing the apparent surface area of the glass. Easily the most recognizable change, however, is the new grille, which is much more intricate, featuring a diamond-shaped pattern and a narrow, rectangular element that stretches beyond the outer boundaries on either side.
The proud new owner is Garrett Rice who, like Lee, goes above and beyond the call.
Along with saving lives in the Dallas area, Rice and his wife Jamie have adopted a total of six children. In the spirit of the relationship between the Cowboys, Ford and Dallas Fire-Rescue, the Rice family received the brand new SUV to help make chauffeuring their half dozen angels a bit easier.
