For 2022 the Ford Expedition has been given a freshening that includes admittedly mild styling updates but big news include big upgrades to its interior and some hot new trim grades to make it more attractive to performance and overlanding enthusiasts.

With the new Jeep Wagoneer on the stage and significantly upgraded off-road variations of the Tahoe and Yukon circling the skies above, Ford has given the Expedition a new adventure and overlanding themed trim grade called Timberline.

First introduced on the Explorer earlier this year, the Timberline trim brings more off-road capability and style to the Expedition starting with unique trim treatments and orange accents. It has a standard 10.6-inch ground clearance and a wider track with improved approach and departure angles.

Helping those numbers are meaty 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler AT tires with unique wheels. It has a two-speed transfer case and a full set of skid plates. They also brought over the Trail Turn Assist system from the new Ford Bronco that can tighten the turning radius in tight spots.

Under the hood is the top dog high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.

Timberline gets a unique interior trim shade of Deep Cypress with black surrounds. Seating trims include outdoorsy orange accent stitching throughout and lots of Timberline logos and other cool doodads to really make it ready to get dirty.

To really put an exclamation point on the new Timberline, they used it as a starting point for the new Off-Grid concept which gets all geared up to really show what you can do with it. With wild graphics and a lot of camping gear it really gets noticed.

It has an additional 2-inch lift, FOX Performance Elite Series 2.5-inch shocks, 17-inch Method Race Wheels and huge 35-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires. Lighting up the world is a 50-inch Rigid light bar above the windshield, a 20-inch light bar below the grille, and D-SS Rigid side shooter cube lights are installed atop the hood.

Getting back to showroom stock, a performance enthusiast oriented 2022 Expedition makes its debut this year with the Stealth Edition Performance Package. Starting with the 440 horsepower 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, it gets a number of other upgrades to make it meaner for the street.

Available on Expedition Limited and Limited MAX, Stealth Edition Performance Package gets a lot of visuals like a unique gloss-black grille, mirror caps, roof rails, running boards, tailgate trim, and many other pieces. The interior gets unique dash and console applique finish that really looks slick along with a good deal of red accent stitching just to name a few of the cabin;s perks.

Inside is al all-new dash which replaces the old F-150 dash we’ve been looking at since 2015. Here is a variation of the unique dash design which made its debut in the new F-150 Lightning with an available large 15.5-inch portrait style center screen. Standard 12-inch center screen. Also available is a new 12.4-inch high-definition digital gauge cluster with customizable information sets.

Not to be outdone by GM, the 2022 Ford Expedition Platinum will be the first to offer Ford’s new BlueCruise hands-free semi autonomous driving system. New technologies also include Pro Trailer Backup Assist 2.0 which allows backing up using a knob and backup camera screen.

There are way more features than we have time to list here. More can be found on the manufacturer website. Built in Louisville, Kentucky, the 2022 Ford Expedition goes on sale early next year.
