      People have been questioning on when the next redesign was and even speculating about the 2017 being redesigned from the 2016 MY.

      Just read a Ford document discussing Ford production on their vehicles over the next 7 years. As of this article, the next full redesign goes into production January 2019. The End of Life production for the current model is set for December 2018 (which would be the 2019MY).

      It's facelift (like the 15/16MY changes) is scheduled for January 2022 with the next all new model scheduled for December 2025.

      If FMC has a critical fault, it's their resistance to timely redesigns.
      Currently, I own a 2015 GMC Yukon Denali that my wife drives, and I own a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD.

      We wanted a Nav, but there was no way we were going to buy a brand new 2004 overly stale and dated design. We were again sick of another retread, and went to GM for something fresh.

      As for the truck, I usually own two at a time. I've owned three Super Duty trucks, and until a couple of days ago when we traded it in for the Explorer, I still owned a 2008 CC PSD that I kept for towing.
      The SD design has barely changed since my first on in 1998, and I simply didn't want to wait another year for the update, so again, I went to GM for something fresh.

      Quite frankly, the next Nav better be extra special because the new generation large SUV from GM is formidable competition. It's an incredible truck with the 6.2l, and has sports car power and a ride that still seems impossible for a 4x.

      The Navigator concept was just shown at the New York Auto Show, although its a "concept" there will be some carry over to production.

      I do know that the "next gen" Expedition is coming soon, originally I had heard 2018 MY but I don't know if that's accurate now.

      Since a complete redesign was coming the Ford Police Advisory Board was pushing the Engineers to spend the money and offer a production, large SUV (Expedition) pursuit rated Interceptor.

      I don't know if that got dropped or is still an option but the redesign retail Expedition is coming.

      Currently the Tahoe/Suburban/Yukon models absolutely kill the Expedition/Navigator competition.

      The next gen Expedition test mule was photograph and shown in Truck Trend mag this month.
      It's going to use the same front clip as the new F-150.
