Timberline Expedition 2022 SUV
DETROIT – Ford Motor on Wednesday unveiled a new all-terrain Timberline model as part of an update to the 2022 Expedition SUV.
The new model benefits from a refreshed exterior design, increased ground clearance and other off-road features such as improved tires and a sturdy skid plate to protect the vehicle’s chassis.
This is the second Timberline model after Ford to introduce trims on the 2021 Explorer SUV with similar characteristics.

With the new Timberline trim, Ford seeks to capitalize on growing SUV sales and demand for off-road vehicles. The appearance and features of these vehicles have become more popular with mainstream consumers in recent years.
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.
Mike Kipley, Ford Expedition chief engineer, said in a statement, “The Timberline sets a new standard with full-size SUV customers who need more passenger room, excellent off-road capability and from a base camp to the journey of a lifetime.
In addition to the Timberline trim, Ford also offered a blacked-out “Stealth Edition Performance Package”. Ford will also offer the BlueCruise hands-free highway driving system on its top-of-the-line Expedition Platinum for 2022.
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 vigilance of the driver via an infrared camera system.

The company has not announced a price for the 2022 campaign. Vehicles currently start between $ 50,000 and $ 75,000.
