On Tuesday the wraps came off the refreshed 2022 Ford Expedition. Ford is giving its largest SUV a few updates, including new trim levels and a more powerful engine offering.
Two new trim levels serve as a headliner for this refreshed Expedition. Ford is adding Timberline and Stealth Performance trim options for 2022, giving buyers an off-road and on-road performance option to choose. Both trim levels are leveraging the high-output twin-turbo V-6 from the F-150 Raptor. So for the first time Expedition buyers can get the 440 horsepower 510 pound-feet of torque engine.
Timberline adds off-road bits, including unique front and rear fascias to enhance approach and departure angles. Ground clearance is also up 0.9 inches to 10.9 inches total. The added height is coming via suspension updates and big 33 inch Goodyear Wrangler tires wrapped around unique 18 inch tires. Ford is also porting over the steel skid plates from the F-150 Raptor, while standard four-wheel drive is also in tow here. It is a similar formula found on the recently-announced Explorer Timberline.
Stealth Edition Performance takes the higher-output engine and adds unique 22 inch wheels. It also features a sport suspension tuning with active damping and gloss black exterior trim. Buyers can add this package to the Expedition Limited or Expedition MAX Limited.
While the two new trims are headliners, all 2022 Expeditions are refreshed for 2022. The revised appearance is tough to distinguish from the current Expedition, but revised fascias with a more modern look is the story.
A bigger story can be found inside the 2022 Expedition. Ford has slotted in its massive 15.5 inch touchscreen display with SYNC 4. This is the same display found in the Mustang Mach E and F-150 Lightning. Complementing this display is a new 12 inch gauge cluster display, which will host the UX for Ford BlueCruise. The hands-free driver assist system will be offered on the Expedition Platinum.
Rounding out the updates, Ford says it has added active suspension which will offer a smoother ride for 2022. The company also says it’s updated the interior materials, specifically on higher-end trims.
