Here’s Why The 2022 Ford Expedition Stealth Performance Is Not An ST

When the refreshed 2022 Ford Expedition was revealed last September, FoMoCo also rolled out two special variants of the full-size SUV – the off-road-focused Timberline, and the on-road-performance-focused Stealth Performance Package. Both of those models aren’t just appearance packages or models equipped with suspension upgrades, either – both offer more in the way of actual performance courtesy of Ford’s high-output 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which produces 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. That made many wonder why The Blue Oval didn’t call the 2022 Ford Expedition Stealth Performance an ST, though it seems the automaker had at least one good reason for that.

“It’s not an ST. Stealth has been a really strong brand so we’re really just building on that,” Devin McParlane, Ford Expedition Marketing Manager, told Ford Authority executive editor, Alex Luft, in a recent interview.

It would have made sense to name the 2022 Ford Expedition Stealth Performance Package the Expedition ST, as that moniker is already in use on high-performance versions of the Ford Edge and Ford Explorer. But it seems that Stealth is also proving to be quite popular with fans of the Ford Mustang, which offers a similar package that also launched for the 2022 model year.

Available on Limited and Limited Max Expedition models, the Expedition Stealth Performance Package also comes equipped with a host of darkened elements including black ovals and a gloss-black grille, badges, mirror caps, roof rails, running boards, tailgate appliqué, rear bumper skid plate, fog lamp bezels, and headlamp and taillamp housings, as well as 22-inch premium black aluminum wheels.

In addition to those upgrades, the package also adds a sport-tuned suspension and red brake calipers to the mix. Inside, the Stealth Performance Package Expedition can be optioned with Ford’s new 360-degree surround sound system, too.

    Mmm, stealth…I think the term infers being able to sneak by potential viewers undetected. Any vehicle with a large SUV profile I won’t think would qualify. Kind of like painting an elephant black and calling it stealthy?

      As a loyal lifelong Ford owner ( Pinto, Grenada, 3 Mustangs and now our 4th Expedition) the later being a 2022 Expedition with the Stealth Performance package I as well was skeptical when I found out about the upgrade. Expeditions seemingly have always blended in to the environment up against its rivals as most people rarely acknowledge its existence unless your a true large SUV fan. That said, the past redesigns and upgrades have put this vehicle in a market that is really starting to churn out higher performance large vehicles. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the overall look, feel and performance as we affectionally named our latest addition the ” BEAST ” with bowling B_ _ _ _. My only displeasure Mr. Ford….. PLEASE bring back the darn SHIFTER, YOU’RE KILLIN ME SMALLS with the dial KNOB !
