Plenty of options for families and off-road enthusiasts
The enlarged selection of the new 2022 Expedition is geared to fulfill contemporary family demands and offer distinctive outdoor and road-tripping activities, with millennials now making for the fastest-growing group in the full-size SUV sector.
The Expedition SUV with a 3.5-liter GTDI 4×2 engine can tow 9,300 pounds, which is 900 pounds more than the two-wheel-drive Chevrolet Tahoe SUV with a 5.3-liter V8 engine, which can only haul 8,400 pounds.
The new Ford Expedition SUV is primed to attract new fans that are more multi-cultural than the full-size SUV sector has experienced in previous years, including more women looking for family activities to balance the stress of their overscheduled life, thanks to these enhanced offers.
From the Expedition XL to the premium Expedition Platinum, as well as the new Stealth Edition Performance Package and Timberline model, the expanded lineup adds more personality and design distinction to each series, including bolder styling with standard LED headlamps, updated taillamps, and new wheel options.
The Platinum now has a redesigned twin-spar mesh grille and fog lights with chrome accents.
Ford Expedition Timberline geared for off-road adventures
“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.
With the new Expedition Timberline variant, Ford delivers on its commitment to provide more robust SUVs and trucks with the most off-road-capable Expedition ever, which is distinguished in the series by a distinctive grille and Active Orange exterior elements.
The Expedition’s trail performance is enhanced with standard 10.6-inch ground clearance, the greatest in its class, and a wider track, while better approach and departure angles allow for deeper travel into the wilderness on more difficult terrain. Ford’s high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine produces 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque in the Timberline.
Trail Turn Assist, which can tighten the turning radius on hairpin trails to take customers farther off-road, robust 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler AT tires, two-speed transfer case, and strong F-150 Raptor underbody shielding are among the more useful enhancements.
Merging two worlds: Stealth Edition Performance Package
The new 2022 Expedition Stealth Edition Performance Package has muscular looks and a sporty suspension, as well as a best-in-class performance from Ford’s high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, which produces 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.
The Stealth Edition Performance Package, which is offered on the Expedition Limited and Limited MAX, includes a contemporary, elegant gloss-black grille, mirror caps, roof rails, running boards, tailgate appliqué, rear bumper skid plate, fog light bezels, and headlamp and taillamp housing.
Unique red brake calipers sit behind bigger 22-inch premium black aluminum rims, while black Expedition and Limited badging, as well as new black Ford oval emblems, are featured front and rear.
Technology packed for more comfort, connectivity, and safety
Ford BlueCruise hands-free highway Driver-Assist Technology makes its debut in the Expedition Platinum. Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Centering, and Speed Sign Recognition are just a few of the new features offered.
It enables drivers to drive hands-free on the highway while being watched by a driver-facing camera to guarantee that their eyes remain on the road. It’s compatible with Hands-Free Blue Zones, which are pre-approved stretches of split roads.
An optional 12.4-inch high-definition digital gauge cluster with a large information on-demand area, Expedition-specific graphics, and animations that respond to the flagship’s selectable drive modes and can display off-roading data and turn-by-turn navigation elevates the new instrument panel and craftsmanship even further.
The 2018 Expedition comes standard with SYNC 4 or SYNC 4A, which has a 15.5-inch high-definition touch touchscreen, the biggest in its class. SYNC 4A has a contemporary interface that learns and presents preferred driving options using machine learning.
Customers may split the screen and operate numerous tasks concurrently, including navigation, music, and other features like towing information, using SYNC 4’s standard 12-inch center screen with information on-demand panel.
Adaptive dash card technology, which employs the touch screen for interactive individual digital cards instead of conventional menus to organize and improve the experience, is available on the SYNC 4A with the 15.5-inch portrait-oriented display.
Ford Power-Up software is standard on the Expedition, and it provides regular vehicle advancements to Ford owners by converting connected vehicle learnings into continual quality improvements, new features, and capabilities. These improvements may enhance the ownership experience while also reducing the need for maintenance visits.
The optional Bang & Olufsen Unleashed Sound System with 22 speakers, including a subwoofer, enhances the Expedition’s music experience. No other SUV in its class has as many available speakers as the Expedition King Ranch, Platinum, Stealth Performance Edition Package, and Timberline versions, which also have 360-degree surround sound.
Amazon Fire TV10 has been added to the rear-seat entertainment system, allowing passengers to watch a choice of material from popular applications on high-definition touch displays with 16 gigabytes of storage. Passengers may view downloadable programs, stream movies, play games, listen to music, and obtain information while on the route.
Peak towing capability
As people seek out more experiences with their outdoor lifestyle equipment, the 2022 Expedition SUV offers simpler methods to hitch and operate a trailer, transforming any driver into a seasoned expert whether backing into a campground or down a boat ramp.
Pro Trailer Backup Assist 2.0 detects a trailer using the rear camera and park assist sensors, and the operator directs it using a control knob and backup camera screen. Version 2.0 improves on the previous method, which required the driver to place a load on the trailer and enter trailer measurements manually, automating everything for a more smooth user experience.
When outfitted with the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package, the Expedition can tow up to 9,300 pounds.
