Ford updates Expedition with new variants, BlueCruise gadgets


In North America, Ford revealed the 2022 Expedition, which packs an expanded lineup of models and new technologies. 

The Timberline boosts the Expedition's trail capability, with a 269-millimeter ground clearance, wider track, and improved approach and departure angles that enable deeper travel into tougher trails. The Exped Timberline is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine producing 440hp. 

More off-road goodies include Trail Turn Assist from the Bronco SUV, which can tighten the turning radius on hairpin trails, 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler AT tires, two-speed transfer case, and tough F-150 Raptor underbody shielding.


As for the Expedition Stealth Edition Performance Package, it combines the Timberline's V6 with sporty styling and suspension. 

Available on the Expedition Limited and Limited MAX, the Stealth Package sports a gloss-black grille, mirror caps, roof rails, running boards, tailgate appliqué, rear bumper skid plate, fog lamp bezels, plus headlamp and taillamp housing.

Unique red brake calipers sit behind larger 22-inch premium black aluminum wheels, while black “Expedition” and “Limited” badging are featured front and back, plus new black Ford oval emblems.


As for the Expedition Platinum, it debuts with BlueCruise highway driver assist technology. The feature builds upon Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go, Lane Centering and Speed Sign Recognition.

BlueCruise also allows drivers 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's compatible on prequalified sections of US highways called Hands-Free Blue Zones.

Another addition to the Expedition range is the Sync4 infotainment, which uses a 15.5-inch high-definition touch display. Ford-Expedition-Stealth-Edition-Performance-PackageSync4 is linked to the Bang & Olufsen sound system, which is comprised of 22 speakers and a subwoofer. The 360-degree surround sound is available on the Expedition King Ranch, Platinum, Stealth Performance, and Timberline models.

For the second- and third-row occupants, entertainment is provided by an Amazon Fire TV10. It carries high-definition touch screens and 16 gigabytes of storage. Passengers can stream videos, play games, listen to music, get information, and watch downloaded programs with the TV10.
