Complete Engines for Ford Expedition
Car engines convert gasoline into the type of fuel that vehicles need to drive. Most engine builds are designed to last 200,000 to 300,000 miles before needing to be replaced entirely. Look for the features, performance standards, and type of motor you desire while browsing Ford Expedition crate engines.What are the types of Ford Expedition motors?
- Single Overhead Camshaft (SOHC): This engine has one cam placed within the cylinder head to control all intake and exhaust parts in your Expedition. It is simple and easy to install.
- Dual Overhead Camshaft (DOHC): This crate engine has two cams placed within the cylinder head. One operates the intake while the other is in control of operating the exhaust. The dual design allows for less restricted airflow while driving, improved combustion efficiency, and better mileage.
- Variable Cam Timing (VCT): This is a variable timing technology invented by Ford motors. Electronically controlled hydraulic parts control either the intake or exhaust instead of cams. VCT provides enhanced engine performance, reduced emissions, and high fuel efficiency. Engines that have VCT technology on both intake and exhaust are called Ti-VCT motors.
- EcoBoost: This type of SUV crate engine features a turbocharged, direct-injection design responsible for delivering the same amount of horsepower and torque as larger, naturally aspirated engines. Only produced by Ford and Mazda make these engines.
- Triton V8 gasoline: This 5.4-liter, 24-valve Ford engine uses VCT technology to control the SOHC within the gasoline-fueled motor. It provides 300 horsepower and 365 pound-feet of torque.
- Triton V8 ethanol: This Ford engine uses VCT and SOHC functions much like the model above, but it requires ethanol instead of gasoline.
- EcoBoost V6: The Ford Expedition EcoBoost engine uses Ti-VCT technology to control the DOHC within the motor. This crate engine provides 365 horsepower and 420 pounds-feet of torque to make up for the smaller liter volume.
Many types of crate engines and performance levels are available when it comes time to replace your Ford Expedition motor. To get an originally manufactured crate engine (OEM), select one of the models above that is produced by Ford. Those Expedition engine parts will be easy to install since they will have the correct specifications and dimensions needed for your vehicle. You may also choose from certain Lincoln, Mercury, and Mazda models as Triton V8 crate engine replacements.
