The Expedition was outsold by two GM models spanning four nameplates – the Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Suburban, as well as the GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. Here’s our logic: Ford treats the Expedition as one model, albeit it’s actually two – the “regular” Expedition and the longer Expedition Max. The “regular” Expedition is a rival to the Tahoe and Yukon, while the extended-length Expedition Max goes up against the Suburban and Yukon XL.

Treating the Tahoe and Suburban as a single vehicle (the way Ford treats the Expedition and Expedition Max) gives Chevrolet 43,170 combined deliveries, which is 24,410 units more than combined Expedition and Expedition Max sales (see running Chevy Tahoe sales and Chevy Suburban sales).

Meanwhile, treating the Yukon and Yukon XL as a single vehicle (again, the same way Ford treats the Expedition and Expedition Max) gives GMC 21,178 combined deliveries, which is almost 2.5K units more than combined Yukon and Yukon XL sales (see running GMC Yukon sales and GMC Yukon XL sales).

This places the Expedition in third, followed by the Jeep Wagoneer in fourth with 13,001 deliveries, and the Nissan Armada in fifth via a 60 percent decrease to 4,089 units. The Toyota Sequoia followed in last place, dropping 98 percent to 30 units as Toyota conducts a generational changeover.

From a segment share standpoint, the Tahoe accounted for a segment-leading 30 percent share, down three percentage points year-over-year. The Expedition took a 19 percent share, down five percentage points. The Suburban commanded 14 percent segment share, up one percentage point, followed by the Wagoneer with 13 percent. The Armada accounted for four percent, down one percentage point, followed by the Sequoia with nill, down two percentage points. By brand, the Expedition’s 19 percent share trailed Chevy’s combined 44 percent share and GMC’s 22 percent share.

It’s also worth noting that the three GM offerings in the segment accounted for a combined 64,348 deliveries for a dominant 64 percent segment share.

The full-size SUV segment expanded 36 percent to 100,288 units in Q3 2022, meaning that Expedition sales underperformed the segment average.

The Ford Authority Take

While Ford Expedition sales increased 12 percent in the third quarter of 2022, it’s impossible to ignore that year-to-date sales are down 35 percent, an indicator of the continued impact of supplier and production difficulties originally brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a reminder, the Ford Expedition received a refresh for the 2022 model year to make it a more formidable competitor to the newer Tahoe, Suburban and Yukon, as well as the new Wagoneer, which continues to eat into the shares of its rivals in the mainstream full-size SUV bracket. The refresh gained the large, vertically-oriented SYNC 4A infotainment display, which is also implemented in the 2021 Mustang Mach-E and 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. Additionally, this refreshed model also introduced the rugged Expedition Timberline trim as well as the Expedition Stealth Performance Package, both powered by the high-output version of the Ford 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine.

The ongoing global supplier issues and other production slowdowns have certainly negatively affected The Blue Oval across the board, limiting the automaker’s ability to keep new vehicles rolling off the assembly line in a timely manner. As a result, supply has been trailing demand in a significant fashion. However, it certainly seems that things are beginning to turn a corner for the better, as the Expedition posted healthy sales growth during the third quarter of 2022, though not as healthy as the overall growth of the segment.
