The facelifted 2022 Ford Expedition is arriving. From various reports, the new model will be introduced next year with some mild upgrades. If you didn’t know, Expedition is one of the largest SUVs on the market that can easily accommodate eight passengers through three rows of seats. The new model will get more standard equipment and some small exterior refreshments.
Moreover, the hybrid version is also rumored, and we can expect better output and efficiency. Basically, this information is not official, but the Expedition Hybrid is the most likely outcome.
2022 Ford Expedition Redesign Expectations
The 2022 Ford Expedition will introduce some small refreshments outside, as per the latest news. Generally, the design should remain attractive, with the same dimensions. However, consider that many rumors are suggesting a hybrid powertrain, a new platform is likely.
Besides that, Blue Oval might add more chrome on the front section and make the grille and the headlights larger. The STX package that is available on many models includes Ford F-150 and Super Duty as well, will be for the first time offered with the Expedition model. This appearance package includes a Chrome front bumper, Chrome rear step bumper, STX badge, 17-18in, or 19.5-in aluminum wheels, and more.
Cabin Offers Numerous Techs
Like the predecessor, the next-gen 2022 Ford Expedition interior has a very spacious cabin. The three-seat bench is standard for the second row, with the option to add a pair of captain’s chairs. If you need more room, the Expedition Max offers unbeatable interior cubby storage. Both second and third rows can be folded completely, opening an enormous warehouse to load everything you need. Like before, this model has a power-folding third-row that can be controlled from the cargo area or back seats. The Expedition also comes with numerous connectivity options and amenities.
The base model uses an 8.0-inch Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, like on many models today, Navigation costs extra. A large rear-seat entertainment system is also available only on the Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum trims. If one is seeking for more luxury, the Platinum trim is the best choice. This trim featured multi-contour front seats with a massage function, real wood on the center console, leather door-trim accents and a steering wheel wrapped in premium leather.
2022 Ford Expedition Engine Possibilities
The newest 2022 Ford Expedition will most likely come with the same engine as the current one. This full-size SUV will offer a 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo engine that produces 400 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. Like before, Expedition will use a rear-wheel-drive system and ten-speed automatic transmission.
From some speculations, the next Expedition could get a hybrid powertrain. If this happens, the Expedition could get more output and a much better fuel economy that the trusty twin-turbo engine provides. At this moment, we don’t know what machine will be used on the Expedition Hybrid. However, consider the same dimension and construction, the new Expedition model will probably continue with the same towing capacity of 6,650 pounds.
Price and Release Date
The new 2022 Ford Expedition is an ideal SUV if you have a large family. This model offers an extraordinarily comfortable interior with plenty of amenities. However, it is not pocket friendly, starting at about $52,500. As you can see, the latest 2022 Ford Expedition cost more than its predecessor because of mild updates.
From the latest news, Blue Oval manufacturer will launch a facelifted version in the second half of 2021. The hybrid version is also rumored, and we can expect more details by the end of this year.
