Ford has made a few changes to the 2021 Ford Expedition, which we’ve outlined over the last few weeks. However, The Blue Oval has much more in store for the 2022 Ford Expedition, as we can see in these new spy shots of an Expedition prototype’s interior.
This 2022 Ford Expedition prototype sports a huge new infotainment screen that dominates the dashboard. The new screen appears to be lifted directly from the Ford Mustang Mach-E, vastly upgrading the infotainment display over the current Expedition. In the Mach-E, the screen measures in at 15.5 inches.
This large screen is also a big counter to the interiors unveiled for the all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, as well as the GMC Yukon, which all come with a standard 10-inch infotainment screen. The 2020 Expedition currently comes standard with an 8-inch screen.
Meanwhile, the 2021 Expedition will bring a few changes to Ford’s full-size SUV. It will introduce a new STX package, for starters, which will add a variety of equipment including STX badging, 18-inch Magnetic Metallic-Painted Cast-Aluminum wheels, and P275/65R18 All-Terrain (A/T) outline white letter tires.
Also, as Ford Authority exclusively reported in September, the 2021 Expedition will be available with two-row seating for the first time. However, as is the case with several other 2021 model year Ford and Lincoln models, the Expedition is losing its Windshield Wiper De-Icer feature.
The Expedition is Ford’s largest current utility vehicle, a full-size, body-on-frame SUV with an aluminum-alloy body built on the Ford T3 platform. It is a modified version of the half-ton platform that underpins the Ford F-150, and it utilizes a four-wheel independent suspension system.
The Expedition is powered by Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which produces 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, and is equipped with The Blue Oval’s 10-speed automatic transmission.
As we recently reported, 2021 Expedition order books opened up back in September. Production will begin at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, Kentucky on November 30th, 2020. The Expedition will continue to be built alongside the Ford F-250-F-550 Super Duty line of trucks, plus the Expedition’s platform-mate, the Lincoln Navigator.
