2022 Ford Expedition Timberline Replaces FX4 Off-Road Package

The refreshed 2022 Ford Expedition was just revealed last week, bringing with it a host of updates, new styling, and fresh tech features. But perhaps the biggest news was the addition of a rugged, off-road-focused variant called the Timberline, which Ford says is the most capable version of its big SUV to date. That includes the FX4 Off-Road Package that’s available on the current model. However, the Expedition Timberline will apparently be replacing it altogether.

Expedition Marketing Manager Devin McParlane confirmed to Ford Authority Executive Editor Alex Luft that the Expedition Timberline will indeed be replacing the FX4 Off-Road Package. Though Ford hasn’t yet completely divulged everything buyers will get with the Timberline, it stands to be more capable than the FX4 package, at a bare minimum.

The FX4 Off-Road Package adds a host of equipment to the 2021 Expedition, including premium off-road shocks, a ControlTrac electronic limited-slip rear differential with 3.73 gears, two-speed automatic four-wheel drive with neutral tow capability, a heavy-duty radiator, fuel tank underbody protection, skid plates, 18-inch Magnetic-painted cast-aluminum wheels, P275/65R18 all-terrain OWL tires, chrome-plated running boards, floor liners, and FX4 badging.

For the 2021 model year, the Expedition FX4 Off-Road Package is available on XLT 200A and 201A equipment groups and retails for $1,650 without the 360-degree camera. The package costs $2,035 with the 360-degree camera when it becomes the “FX4 Off-Road Package with 360-Degree Camera,” which is available on XLT 202A and Limited 301A.

Meanwhile, the Expedition Timberline comes equipped with Active Orange accents, a unique front grille, Timberline-exclusive wheels, 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler A/T tires, a wider track, underbody shielding, Ford’s Trail Turn Assist feature, 10.6 inches of ground clearance, and improved approach and departure angles. The Timberline is powered by Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 H.O., which produces 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque and is mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission and a two-speed transfer case. The Timberline will not be available with the longer-wheelbase Expedition Max, however, as Ford Authority reported last week.

    I had been waiting for this reveal. I was all over this until I heard it wasn’t available in the long wheelbase. Have a Yukon XL AT4 on order as of today.
