All New 2022 Ford Expedition SUV

2022 Expedition Interior

The Ford’s interior offers a lot of space and a surprising number of standard features from the base model upwards. With such a big space to trim, it’s not surprising to find some shoddy materials inside, but for the most part, they’re well-hidden and easy to forget. It’s more of a problem higher up in the range where models cost more than $70,000. Substandard materials on such an expensive SUV leaves a sour taste in the mouth, although things have improved following the latest 2022 update.

Infotainment is good, with even the base XL STX model now featuring a 12-inch screen with all the modern connectivity features. In the base specification, you have to fold the third-row down manually, but power adjustment is available on higher-spec models. Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 is standard fitment on all trims and includes an impressive array of driver assistance features.

Timberline

If you’re looking for enhanced power and the utmost off-road capability, then the Ford Expedition® Timberline™ is perfect for your next adventure. Outfitted with a best-in-class High-Output 3.5L EcoBoost® Twin-Turbo V6 engine, this SUV delivers 440 horsepower and 691 N.m. of torque* to step up when the going gets rough.

Dominate the Road

There’s nothing covert about this next adventure for you and your family. The new Ford Expedition offers the biggest and most versatile family haulers that are advanced in fuel economy, capability and performance on and off-road. And with the notable combination of style, leg room and upgraded tech features, your family’s next journey will be beyond ordinary.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The Expedition comes standard with a huge 12.0-inch touchscreen that runs Ford’s Sync4 infotainment software. Along with the ability to accept over-the-air updates, it features wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot is available, too, as is a 22-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo and a rear-seat entertainment system. If the standard touchscreen isn’t big enough, the Expedition can also be fitted with a vertically oriented 15.5-inch unit, which can also be found inside the battery-electric Mustang Mach-E.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

Motivating the Expedition is a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 and responsive 10-speed automatic transmission that pair with rear- or four-wheel drive. The standard engine makes 380 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque but on Limited models that output is boosted to 400 horsepower and 480 pound-feet. An even higher-output version is available on the Timberline trim and on the Limited with the Stealth Performance package that bumps those figures to 440 horses and 510 pound-feet. While we haven’t sampled either of those engines, we’ve previously tested a Platinum model with a 400-hp twin-turbo V-6. All Expeditions employ an independent rear suspension. While passengers are comforted by its soft ride, the driver is penalized by ungainly handling and imprecise steering feel. The Expedition can tow up to 9300 pounds, while the longer Expedition Max’s rating is capped at 9000 pounds.

2022 Expedition Trunk and Cargo Space

With all eight seats in place, the Expedition still offers a reasonable 20.9 cubic feet behind the third row. Fold the third-row flat, and you get 63.6 cubes of cargo capacity. As the XL STX is strictly a five-seater, the latter figure is its standard cargo capacity. With both the second and third-row folded flat, the cargo capacity grows to 104.6 cubic feet.

Interior storage is equally impressive. The center armrest between the front passengers is massive, and the door pockets are vast. The cupholder count is 15; nearly every passenger can bring two drinks along.
