Ford’s New Full-Size Off-Roader: The 2022 Expedition Timberline

We are fans of everything that goes off-road, and we especially love when manufacturers add new off-road trims to their lineups that go deeper than just paint and stickers. With the 2022 refresh of its largest SUV, Ford has introduced the all-new Expedition Timberline. Let’s dig in and see what makes the 2022 ford expedition Timberline unique.

The new Timberline is slated to be Ford’s most off-road-capable Expedition ever. While we’re still waiting for a full Expedition Raptor, the new Timberline is a step in the right direction. Because the Expedition shares much of its DNA with the Ford F-150, the SUV is underpinned by a fully boxed high-strength steel frame. Thanks to those same similarities, the Expedition Timberline utilizes many of the Raptor’s steel underbody skidplates, including the truck’s unique front skid.

Although the 2022 ford expedition Timberline’s suspension isn’t lifted, Ford has still improved it with off-road-enhanced springs and sway bars, along with off-road-tuned steering. Tires are meaty 265/70R18 Goodyear Wrangler all-terrains that measure about 33 inches tall and 10.5 inches wide. The tires are mounted on 18-inch black aluminum wheels that feature laser-engraved Timberline logos.

The Goodyear tires are sure to keep things moving off-road, but having a bit of help never hurts. The Expedition Timberline comes equipped with an electronic locking rear differential and seven selectable drive modes. The Expedition Timberline is also the first vehicle outside of the Bronco family to feature the innovative Trail Turn Assist function. Trail Turn Assist uses the vehicle’s brake traction control system to slow the inside rear tire, allowing the vehicle to essentially pivot around it, thus enabling a tighter turn on low-friction surfaces.
