Ford delivers a grander and bolder look for the full-sized 2022 Expedition SUV, freshly redesigned for the upcoming model year. Several new features offer buyers best-in-class options for capability and features, some of which are exclusive to the 2022 Ford Expedition. As a three-row SUV, the Expedition is large enough to seat up to eight passengers and has enough room even for tall adults to sit comfortably in all three rows, a benefit which isn’t true of every SUV of this class. Interior comfort provided by the independent rear suspension is likely to surprise buyers with its smooth ride quality, even on rough terrain.
This vehicle comes equipped with a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine, but you can upgrade to a high-output version if you want a little more power. Four-wheel drive is available for all trim levels, and it includes a terrain management system that offers driving modes dedicated to specific conditions such as mud, snow, and sand to give you the freedom to drive almost anywhere. Cargo space in the 2022 Expedition is expansive at a total of 104.6 cubic feet with all the rear seats folded, and space behind the second row of seats measures at a large 63.6 cubic feet. Behind the third row, 20.9 cubic feet of space provides plenty of space for grocery trips and errands, but buyers who want to expand the cargo space can add an additional 16.9 cubic feet with the Max Edition.
Anyone shopping for a large three-row SUV will find the interior features are upgraded for 2022 in the Expedition, with several new technology upgrades and additional driver-assist safety features. Enjoy riding in style with special edition models like the exciting new Timberline or Stealth Performance editions, both packed with technology and performance upgrades. Ford truly delivers a complete package with the 2022 Expedition redesign to make it a vehicle perfect for family travel.
With the refresh for 2022 Expedition models, several new design features give the Expedition a new look on the outside. The now-standard LED headlights fit into a slimmer line across the front end, which matches up with the blue oval logo in the center of the new grille, now accented with platinum and chrome. Wheels get refreshed with new designs, and the LED taillights are updated with a new configuration for a modern, sleek appearance. Special edition models offer a number of options for sporty, blacked-out style, and the shine of chrome will delineate the upper-level trims.
Two engine options are available for the 2022 Expedition, starting with the standard 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6. With this capable engine generating 380 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque, the 2022 Expedition can tow up to 6,000 pounds when properly equipped. Most models come standard with rear-wheel drive, and available four-wheel drive can be added to any trim in the lineup to increase capability. The available high-output 3.5-liter V6 engine increases its horsepower to 440 with 510 lb-ft of torque and has a maximum towing capacity of 9,300 pounds. Both of these powerful engines are paired to a ten-speed automatic transmission.
Ford builds every 2022 Expedition with an independent rear suspension which translates into comfortable ride quality inside the cabin, regardless of whether you drive this SUV on the road or on the trail. If you are a fan of the previous FX4 Off-Road Package, then you will want to turn your attention to the new Timberline trim. This new trim is specially designed to handle your off-road adventures.
For 2022, Ford has equipped the Expedition with a rich offering of technology for both convenience and safety features to make it one of the most tech-laden SUVs in its segment. Drivers will appreciate the new available 12.4-inch gauge cluster, which displays pertinent information from the onboard navigation, drive modes with featured animation, and other data configurable in a large, easy-to-read screen. The standard 12-inch touchscreen in the center stack is loaded with the user-friendly SYNC 4 infotainment system with enhanced voice recognition and split-screen views to allow simple access to music, navigation, and other settings at the same time.
In upper trims, the available 15.5-inch touchscreen features SYNC 4A, which upgrades voice recognition technology to capably understand commands in a conversational tone without needing to learn specific commands to operate the system. Also, for select trims, an available Amazon Fire TV for Auto system allows rear seat passengers to enjoy watching streamed content through the available HD rear-seat entertainment system. Add the available powered reclining third-row seats, and passengers usually forgotten in the back can get comfortable to enjoy playing games, listening to music, or watching TV. With the available USB charging ports in every row, passengers can plug in and use up to ten devices using the standard WiFi provided through FordPass Connect.
Safety features included as standard for the 2022 Expedition are numerous, with a Blind Spot Information System, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert as some of the driver-assist technology found in every trim level. Exciting new features like BlueCruise take the Expedition into semi-autonomous driving, with over 130,000 miles of roadways available to set the controls and let the 2022 Platinum Expedition take over most of the driving duty. With BlueCruise, the Expedition steers, brakes, and maintains a set speed as long as the driver keeps eyes on the road ahead. Other exciting available features like Intersection Assist to prevent collisions when turning and an Active Air Dam to improve aerodynamics are just part of the vast array of tech to keep the Expedition safer on the road.
The success of the Timberline Edition in the Ford Explorer has encouraged the creation of the 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline, new this year to the lineup. Ford calls the Expedition Timberline its most capable off-road Expedition ever. With its specialized equipment, the Timberline can hit back-country trails with confidence due to its plethora of upgraded features suited to rugged terrain. The modified suspension raises the ground clearance to 10.6 inches, which gives the Expedition a slight advantage over the 10 inches of clearance in the competing Jeep Wagoneer. Improved approach and departure angles along with Trail Control mean the Expedition can take on steeper inclines, and Trail Turn Assist allows the Expedition to make tighter turns with a smaller turning radius.
Heavy-duty skid plates like those found in the Raptor protect the underbody, and the standard 4x4 system comes with a two-speed transfer case for maneuvering through terrain backed by the power of the high-output V6 engine. Large blacked-out wheels fitted with 33-inch Goodyear all-terrain tires tackle uneven territory with ease, and the electronic limited-slip differential means trail riding can begin with the push of a button. Expect the exterior to have its own unique appearance in Forest Green with orange exterior accents matched by a Cypress Green interior and Deep Tangerine stitching to contrast in the ActiveX seats and dash. Other features to be found in the Timberline include Zone Lighting to brighten your campsite or to easily unload at night and Trailer Reverse Guidance to make backing up with your trailer a simple affair.
Another new addition to the lineup is the Stealth Performance Edition, which upgrades to a sport-tuned suspension ideal for road performance with active damping. The standard high-output engine is also found under the hood of the Stealth Expedition, and a dual exhaust speaks to the sport-oriented nature of this edition. Larger 22-inch premium blacked-out wheels improve performance for this road-loving SUV tuned for superior handling. Its black exterior paint, blacked-out grille, roof rails, and running boards are also joined by a black oval logo found only on the Stealth. Enjoy cruising the roadways with the incredible quality of the 22-speaker B&O Unleashed audio system from Bang and Olufsen, a system that boasts the highest number of speakers in the segment. Get stealthy with this special edition new for the 2022 Expedition.
