The new 2022 Ford Expedition adds new class-exclusive features, an expanded lineup of models, new driver-assist and connected technologies.
The 2022 Ford Expedition is assembled at Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, Kentucky, and will go on sale in the first quarter of 2022.
Expedition Timberline model
Timberline starts with a standard 10.6-inch best ground clearance in its class and a wider track, while improved approach and departure angles enable deeper travel into the backcountry on tougher trails.
Timberline is powered by Ford’s high-output 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine producing 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.
More functional upgrades include Trail Turn Assist – the same system as on Bronco SUV – that can tighten the turning radius on hairpin trails to take customers further off-road, rugged 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler AT tires, two-speed transfer case and tough F-150 Raptor underbody shielding.
Stealth Edition Performance Package
The new 2022 Expedition Stealth Edition Performance Package offers best-in-class power from Ford’s high-output 3.5-litre EcoBoost engine producing 440 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.
Available on Expedition Limited and Limited MAX, Stealth Edition Performance Package sports modern, stylish gloss-black features including the grille, mirror caps, roof rails, running boards, tailgate appliqué, rear bumper skid plate, fog lamp bezels, plus headlamp and taillamp housing.
Unique red brake callipers sit behind larger 22-inch premium black aluminum wheels, while “Expedition” and “Limited” badging in black are featured front and back, plus new black Ford oval emblems.
Driver-Assist Technology features
Every 2022 Ford Expedition comes with standard and available driver-assist features. These include:
- Road Edge Detection: This feature engages the steering system to help you maintain your position in the lane on roads with a visible line or a clear edge
- Intersection Assist: It uses the front camera and radar sensors to detect oncoming traffic while you are attempting to turn left. If there’s a risk of a potential collision with an oncoming vehicle, your vehicle can alert you and apply the brakes.
- Reverse Brake Assist: This feature senses oncoming pedestrians and vehicles, alerts the driver, and automatically brakes if the vehicle is at risk of a collision
- Evasive Steering Assist: This available feature can help make it easier to potentially avoid a collision. It doesn’t steer for you, but it can provide extra steering support if the system’s warning goes off and you need to maneuver around the vehicle ahead
- Active Air Dam: This available new feature improves aerodynamics, deploying at speeds above 40 mph then automatically retracting at lower speeds for city driving and parking
The Expedition Platinum debuts Ford BlueCruise hands-free highway Driver-Assist Technology.
The available new feature builds upon Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Centering and Speed Sign Recognition. It allows owners to operate their vehicle hands-free on the highway while being monitored by a driver-facing camera to ensure they keep their eyes on the road.
It is compatible with prequalified sections of divided highways called Hands-Free Blue Zones.
Pro Trailer Backup Assist 2.0 uses the rear camera and park aid sensors to detect a trailer, with the user directing it through a control knob and backup camera screen.
Version 2.0 improves on the previous system that required the driver to put a “target” on the trailer and to input trailer dimensions – automating all of that for a more seamless user experience.
Expedition tows up to 4,173 kg (9,200 lbs) when equipped with the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package.
