2022 Ford Expedition Interior Spy Shots Show Huge New Infotainment Screen

Sponsored

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.

We’ll have much more on the 2021 Expedition soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for the latest Ford Expedition news and non-stop Ford news coverage.

    Can we just stop with all of this large screen BS? It’s getting to the point that “does it have real, tactile knobs” is going to be one of my major purchasing decision factors.
    I will say, that looks to be one hell of a chrome dial at the bottom of this screen.

      The tend appears unstoppable. It’s seems giant tacked-on screens will be to the 2020’s what giant tailfins were to the early 1960’s

      Giant screens are the next constant in vehicles. Just like the chest-freezer-style and size center consoles necessitating narrower seats and cramped driving positions. I am a tech-head from the word “go”, and even I don’t want this nonsense i a vehicle.

      Agree with that! Obnoxious and unnecessary. Also, this trend of having the screen rise above the dash is another no go for me. I don’t want a wide screen monitor as part of the control panel. What genius on the design side does this? If there is a focus group after 20 years of owning Expys I’ve never been contacted.

    Too large. Tacked on. No function specific buttons and knobs. Huge step backwards.

      Oh, dear me, don’t say it looks “tacked on”. The industry buzz-word is “floating”. More corners and edges, more dust-catching corners an nooks and crannies. The tacked on, after-thought look derives from German cars, and the drones that lay out interiors think this means “classy”.

      Note I say the drones who “lay out” interiors. I mean what I write; there haven’t been interior DESIGNERS for decades.

    All these comments are interesting coming from those who will likely never buy an Expedition. We have a ‘20, prefer this style screen, and will be looking to upgrade to a new and improved ‘22. Ford obviously knows their customers and the market very well since the first thing we thought was awesome and about time when we saw the screen.

      I’ve had several Expeditions over the last 20 years and can do without it. Ford obviously doesn’t know all of their customers very well. Make it an option.

    Dirk….I recently test drove the Yukon Denali, Surburban Premier and Escalade ESV. While all three are a definite upgrade from their predecessors, the interiors are still inferior to the current Navigator. I’m interested to see how the 2022 Expedition interior turns out. Regardless of what Lincoln does, I can’t imagine that the 22 Navigator would be worse than the current model. Where GM is lacking majorly is their third row. It’s still a joke. It doesn’t recline and does not line up with the rear windows. Ford/Lincoln has done this row right with an actual view out and a recline feature. The Escalade we test drove was 100K and the third row was the same cheap vinyl as in the 70K Suburban with no view and no recline. I honestly think we’ll see a major interior improvement with the 22 Expedition. The new RAM trucks changed the game two years ago and with the new Jeep Wagoneer coming, the ante is about to be up’d again.
