The 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline was revealed back in September as the most off-road capable version of the Ford Expedition to date. However, it appears that those eager to get their hands on one of these rugged new SUVs will have to shell out a little more than previously expected, as sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the 2022 Ford Expedition has received a price increase over the new model’s original MSRP.
Previously, the Expedition Timberline was slated to carry a starting price of $66,690, minus a mandatory $1,695 delivery and destination fee that brings the total base MSRP to $68,385, as Ford Authority reported back in October. Now, the off-road-focused SUV will retail for $68,150, which comes out to $69,845 with destination and delivery. For comparison’s sake, the 2022 Expedition Limited 4×4 starts out at $66,780 minus destination.
As Ford Authority previously reported, the Expedition Timberline is equipped with unique exterior styling elements, a robust powertrain, and an array of upgrades that make it highly capable off-road. That includes a unique front grille, Active Orange accents, a wider track, 10.6 inches of ground clearance, underbody shielding, and unique wheels wrapped with 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler A/T tires. Trail Turn Assist helps the big SUV navigate tight turns on the trails, while Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 H.O. delivers a substantial 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, which flows through FoMoCo’s 10-speed automatic transmission to either the rear or all four wheels via a two-speed transfer case.
As Ford Authority recently reported, the 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline replaces the previous gen’s optional FX4 Off-Road Package. Unfortunately for those that want or need more cargo space, the Timberline will not be available in conjunction with the longer-wheelbase Expedition Max. The Expedition Timberline will be produced at the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant, as is the case with all other Expedition models, and is expected to launch in early 2022.
