Ford has finally built an expedition that can make one.
The updated Expedition 2022 will be offered in a new Timberline trim that will bring some serious off-road capability to the full-size SUV.
It features a two-speed transfer case, 33-inch off-road tires that give it 10.6-inch ground clearance, skid plates borrowed from the F-150 Raptor, and the Cornering Assist feature that debuted on the new Bronco, which locks the inside rear wheel on slippery surfaces to allow the vehicle to make tighter turns at low speeds.
All Expeditions get a refreshed front, rear and interior styling and will come with a host of new technologies, including a 15.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system shared with the Mustang Mach-E and driving system. Ford BlueCruise hands-free.
BlueCruise is a next-level highway cruise control system that uses facial recognition technology to ensure a driver is looking at the road ahead, then relies on hyper-precise maps, GPS, and sensors to steer the vehicle into the lane.
Ford also adds a street performance trim called Stealth which is the opposite of the Timberline. It features a high-output 440hp version of the Expedition’s turbocharged V6, sport-tuned suspension, 22-inch wheels with low-profile tires, dark exterior trims and racy red stitching on the upholstery.
