Ford today reveals the new 2022 Expedition, its flagship SUV, with an expanded lineup of models to choose from, new driver-assist and connected technologies and a new, off-road capable Timberline series, the automaker announced
“Expedition is more than family transportation. It’s a full-size SUV that allows families to share adventures and make connections confidently and comfortably,” said Kumar Galhotra, president, Americas & International Markets Group. “We’ve refined almost every part of our new Expedition – from improved interiors to more connectivity enhancements to make the ownership experience as convenient as possible for the always-on lives of our customers.”
The new Expedition elevates itself with new features, plus new capabilities and technologies. This expanded lineup brings more design distinction for each series – from Expedition XL to the premium Expedition Platinum, as well as the new Stealth Edition Performance Package and Timberline model – including bolder styling with standard LED headlamps, updated taillamps and new wheel choices. Also, a new twin-spar mesh grille and fog lamps with chrome accents have been added to the Platinum.
The new Expedition Timberline model is the most off-road-capable Expedition ever, Ford said, which is set apart in the series with a unique grille and Active Orange exterior accents.
“Timberline sets a new standard with full-size SUV customers who need more passenger space, great off-road capability and a basecamp for life’s journeys,” said Mike Kipley, Ford Expedition chief engineer.
The Timberline package starts with standard 10.6-inch ground clearance and a wider track, while improved approach and departure angles enable deeper travel into the backcountry on tougher trails. Timberline is powered by Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine producing 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.
More functional upgrades include Trail Turn Assist – the same system as on Bronco SUV – that can tighten the turning radius on hairpin trails to take customers further off-road, rugged 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler AT tires, two-speed transfer case and tough F-150 Raptor underbody shielding.
With athletic styling and a sport-tuned suspension, the new 2022 Expedition Stealth Edition Performance Package also offers power from Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine producing 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.
Available on Expedition Limited and Limited MAX, Stealth Edition Performance Package sports gloss-black features including grille, mirror caps, roof rails, running boards, tailgate appliqué, rear bumper skid plate, fog lamp bezels, plus headlamp and taillamp housing. Unique red brake calipers sit behind larger 22-inch premium black aluminum wheels, while “Expedition” and “Limited” badging in black are featured front and back, plus new black Ford oval emblems.
