Have You Seen the Special Editions of the New Ford Explorer and Expedition?

Ford SUV sales across the US are spiking. The new Ford Expedition alone, for example, saw a 95 percent sales increase in August over last year, with California leading the way as the full-size SUV's third largest market. The Ford Explorer, on the other hand, has had its best year in more than a ten. The verdict, it seems, is in: more people than ever love our automaker's drive. But things are about to get even better for enthusiasts.

At the recent State Fair of Texas, Ford unveiled a mini fleet of special editions of its mid-size and large SUVs, to become available for order throughout the US a little later this year. The new Explorer is set to receive Limited Luxury and Desert Copper variants, while the new Expedition will see Stealth and Texas editions. Needless to say, we can't wait for a few to show up in Placentia, CA. Here's what we can expect under the hood and in-cabin.
