An off-road-oriented 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline has joined the lineup. Ford calls it the most capable variant of the model to date, and this version will apparently substitute the current FX4 Off-Road Package.
Ford confirms the Expedition Timberline that just debuted for the 2022 model year will be replacing the FX4 Off-Road Package. The latter is available for the 2021 Ford Expedition and costs $1,650 without a 360-degree camera or $2,035 with the camera.
The package includes a decent list of equipment for off-road driving, in particular premium shocks, 2-speed automatic four-wheel drive with neutral tow capability, a heavy-duty radiator and fuel tank underbody protection, skid plates, all-terrain tires, badging, floor liners, chrome-plated running boards; cast-aluminum 18-inch wheels, a ControlTrac electronic limited-slip rear differential with 3.73 gears.
As for the 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline, it stands to be more capable than the FX4 Off-Road Package, at least this follows from Ford’s statement. The Expedition Timberline features a wider track, underbody shielding, exclusive wheels with 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires, Trail Turn Assist.
For off-road purposes, Ford improved approach and departure angles and increased ground clearance to 10.6 inches. The exterior has a unique front grille, Active Orange accents. This version is powered by Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine delivering 440 hp and 510 pound-feet of torque. The unit is combined with the brand’s 10-speed automatic transmission and a two-speed transfer case.
