2022 Ford Expedition Stealth Performance Package Is Pretty Damn Quick

The refreshed 2022 Ford Expedition brought a host of additions and upgrades to the SUV’s lineup. Perhaps the most notable changes are the addition of two new variants, the Timberline and Stealth Edition Performance Package. The latter brings a surprising amount of get-up-and-go to the Expedition, as it provides more potent performance than originally expected. Car and Driver recently put the Expedition Stealth Performance through its paces, and was impressed with how it conducted itself in a test of speed.

Car and Driver found that the peppy SUV can gallop from zero to 60 mph in a matter of 4.9 seconds, making good use of Ford’s high-output 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which provides 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. This is faster than the Lincoln Navigator that harnesses the same engine, which the publication ran from zero to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds, proving that the Stealth Performance Package gives the Expedition plenty of power. Surprisingly, it is also a bit faster than the Ford F-150 Raptor, which boasts a zero to 60 mph time of 5.2 seconds.

There are a few downsides to the Expedition Stealth Performance despite its muscle. “It still handles like an Expedition,” the publication notes, while calling attention to the fact that the package adds almost $10,000 to the price of the SUV. Interested customers should expect to shell out $78,730 for the 2022 Ford Expedition Stealth Performance with rear-wheel-drive, or $81,780 for four-wheel-drive.

In addition to its formidable performance, the Ford Expedition Stealth Performance Edition Package adds unique niceties such as black painted styling elements on the front end, side mirrors, running boards, and rear bumper, in addition to blacked out exterior badging. Inside, the cabin receives a special center console, package-specific floor mats, and red seat stitching, which is otherwise unavailable on any Expedition without the Stealth Edition or Stealth Performance Edition packages.

    Its a great package but thats big money for an Expedition, even a Stealth Edition Expedition. The 4WD upcharge is also surprising considering everything is AWD nowadays. The exterior blackout trim looks great but why the ugly brushed aluminum trim on the wheels?…….it completely destroys the all black look. The ST wheels on Escape, Explorer are all black, the F150 dark package wheels are all black, please go all black Ford.

    We have a regular Stealth, the Ecoboost can certainly hustle. It’s overall a great package, I just wish they got rid of all the chrome trim and upgraded the brakes to something like a brembo. People will complain about price but it’s honestly not out of line with comps – blame federal fiscal policy.

    When compared to Tahoe RST performance it costs effectively the same but is faster with more features but doesn’t have the engine sound or brakes.

    Really wish they’d put that supercharged V8 in a lowered f150 or a Stealth R Expedition. I’d absolutely buy a Stealth R Expedition with that motor.

      they do — Shelby Super Snake F150. one of the best drives out there.

    The real downside of these 0-60 numbers is they’re sort of half lies. Yes, you can do it, but you have to be at the snot out of the vehicle, building boost while brake torquing and whatnot. That is not the 0-60 time for stomping it at the light.

    Typically when I need that sort of power, it’s a 5 to 60 rolling start kinda deal. A “I guess this car isn’t gonna let me merge” situation, not a planned out situation where brake boosting is applicable.
