The new model features a refreshed exterior design, increased ground clearance and other off-road features such as upgraded tires and a heavy-duty skid plate to protect the vehicle’s undercarriage.
This is the second Timberline model after Ford introduced the trim on the 2021 Explorer SUV with similar characteristics.
The Timberline Expedition will be powered by Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that produces 440 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.
“Timberline sets a new standard with full-size SUV customers who need more passenger space, ample off-road capability and a base camp for life’s travels,” said Ford Expedition chief engineer Mike Kipley in a statement.
The BlueCruise system enables hands-free driving on more than 130,000 miles of dedicated highways in North America. It controls the speed and direction of the vehicle, while monitoring the driver’s attention through an infrared camera system.

The company has not announced a price for the 2022 expedition. The vehicle currently starts between $ 50,000 and $ 75,000.
