As Ford Authority has reported extensively over the last several months, the 2022 Ford Expedition is expected to receive a mid-cycle refresh consisting of some exterior styling tweaks, the same 15.5-inch infotainment screen as the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Ford F-150 Lightning, various other interior upgrades borrowed from the Ford F-150, and the addition of a more off-road-focused Timberline model similar to the Ford Explorer Timberline. Now, Automotive News is reporting that the 2022 Ford Expedition will also receive a host of tech upgrades as well.
According to the report, the 2022 Expedition will boast over-the-air update capability, like the F-150 and Mach-E, as well as SYNC 4, Ford’s BlueCruise hands-free highway driving feature, and the addition of the rugged Expedition Timberline. AN is also reporting that the Expedition will undergo a more extensive redesign in 2024, when it will add a hybrid option, perhaps the F-150’s 3.5L PowerBoost V6.
These updates are also in line with those from the recently-revealed 2022 Lincoln Navigator, which shares the Ford T3 Platform with the Expedition and is built alongside it at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant. In addition to revised front and rear fascias, the 2022 Navigator features a new and larger 13.2-inch infotainment screen with SYNC 4, as well as a 12-inch digital gauge cluster and a handful of other changes.
The 2022 Navigator will also be the first Lincoln vehicle to offer ActiveGlide – the brand’s hands-free highway driving technology that combines Intelligent Active Cruise Control with Speed Sign Recognition and Lane Centering, which Ford Authority was the first to report back in May. The 2022 Navigator is powered exclusively by Ford’s twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which is rated to produce 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque and is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
