Model Preview

The 2023 Ford Expedition is expected to receive a round of updates over the 2022 model.

The Expedition was last redesigned for the 2018 model year when it moved to a platform that was aluminum-intensive and derived from the then-latest Ford F-150. That substantially reduced weight on some models, and, with the continuation of dropping putting in a turbocharged V6 instead of rivals' V8 keeps the Expedition quick and slightly more efficient than other very large SUVs.

Revisions for 2022 included moderate styling revisions along the lines of the latest F-150, including changes to the grille and exterior lighting, along with new wheel options. A new dashboard design was introduced, too. The most significant changes, along with upgraded materials, were new infotainment systems. A 12-inch touchscreen is standard, but a portrait-oriented 15.5-inch version is optional and both use the latest Sync 4 system.

Later in the model year, Ford introduced the Timberline edition. Only available in the standard length, the Timberline has a different grille and exterior trim than others, along with 33-inch all-terrain tires and increased ride height.

Trim levels for 2022 are the XLT STX, XLT, Limited, Timberline, King Ranch, and Platinum. The Limited can be equipped with a Stealth Package that increases horsepower and uses 22-inch wheels with a stiffer suspension. All of these are likely to continue into 2023.

All Expeditions are powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. It makes 380 horsepower, 400 on Limited models, and 440 horsepower on the Timberline and when the Limited is equipped with the Stealth Package. Apart from the Timberline, rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available.

Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety nor the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has completed crash tests on the 2022 Expedition, but the NHTSA gave rear-wheel-drive models four-stars in side-impact tests and three-stars in the rollover tests. The maximum is five stars.

For 2022, Ford added its BlueCruise advanced driver assistance technology on the Platinum model, which can perform steering and braking assists at highway speeds.

Pricing & Release Date

Expect to see the 2023 Expedition by late summer or early fall 2022, barring any parts shortages that have been hampering the production of vehicles from Ford and most automakers. Dealers may start taking orders for them in the summer.

Prices should also be very similar to 2022 models, which start from $53,775 MSRP for the two-row XLT STX version. The three-row XLT starts at $57,835 and rises to the top-tier Platinum at $79,460. Extended Max versions of every model except the XLT STX and Timberline add $2,000.

The 2023 Ford Expedition competes with the Chevrolet Tahoe, Jeep Wagoneer, and Toyota Sequoia.
