The Ford Expedition arrived as a fully-redesigned model in 2018, giving the brand a major leg up in the large SUV class, a segment that often goes multiple years without seeing any major changes. With the SUV entering its fifth model year on sale since the major redesign, we expect the 2022 Ford Expedition to be a carryover model.
When Ford unveiled the Expedition in 2018, the large SUV arrived with a sizable stance and upscale qualities, which we expect to remain the same for the 2022 model year. The imposing front grille, U-shaped headlights, and massive hood give the Expedition its larger-than-life styling. At the back, a blacked-out D-pillar mimics a wraparound rear windshield, while a horizontal chrome bar connects the taillights.
On the inside, the current Expedition features a sturdy design that’s borrowed from Ford’s full-size pickup trucks. The dashboard has a clear layout with large dials and simple buttons for both the infotainment and HVAC systems. Numerous storage compartments, a rotary dial shift knob, and clear lines maximize all of the Expedition's spacious interior. As a carryover model, we expect the 2022 Ford Expedition to share the same exterior design as the current model that’s on sale.
Tech features for the 2022 Expedition should mirror the ones offered on the current SUV. In addition to coming with an 8-inch touchscreen, the SUV will have Wi-Fi hot spot, a six-speaker audio system, four USB ports, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. A 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, an 8-inch digital gauge cluster, two extra USB ports, and a rear-seat entertainment system are expected to be optional.
The current Expedition is available with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that’s offered in two different states of tune. Standard output is rated at 375 horsepower, while Platinum trims produce 400 hp. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while four-wheel drive is available. A 10-speed automatic transmission is the only gearbox available. This powertrain will continue to be offered with the 2022 Ford Expedition.
Ford offers the current Expedition with blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, rear cross traffic alert, lane keeping assist, and automatic emergency braking as standard. In the NHTSA’s testing, the current SUV earned a four-star overall safety rating. These safety features and ratings will remain the same for the 2022 model year.
