The 2022 Ford Expedition ST Packs a More Powerful Punch
It’s about time for the Ford Expedition to receive a few updates. Based on the spot photos we’ve seen of the 2022 Ford Expedition ST, we can expect a better-looking ride. The new Expedition might be more powerful too.
Spy shots may have captured the 2022 Ford Expedition ST on the prowl
The Ford Expedition isn’t exactly old yet, but it hasn’t received a redesign since 2018. Now we’re starting to see clues about the 2022 Ford Expedition ST emerge in a series of spy shots. But all the information we have is currently speculation.
Even if this isn’t the Expedition ST, we still know that the 2022 model is arriving with a few updates. For example, the front end is hidden under camouflage. It could be hiding a new grille design, new LED headlights, running lights, and a new bumper shape.
The blue oval badge on the front is covered, so that’s a bit odd. We aren’t exactly sure what Ford is trying to hide. Also, the rear end could receive new taillights and a new tailgate design. Some rumors suggest that it will make its debut soon.
What to expect with the Explorer ST
The 2022 Ford Expedition ST was caught towing a trailer. This could indicate that the Expedition will gain more power. Currently, the Expedition is powered by a town-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine with 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.
With the Platinum trim, it pumps out 400 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. But the Expedition could gain more power because the engine provides 450 hp in the Lincoln Navigator. Also, when properly equipped, the Expedition can tow up to 9,300 lbs.
The engine will be paired with a 10-speed automatic ear box. It’s expected to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in about five seconds. This is incredibly fast for an SUV. This makes sense because ST stands for sports technology.
It could gain a similar style to the Ford Explorer ST with a blacked-out grille, red brake calipers, 22-inch wheels, and a twin-tip exhaust. The Explorer begins at about $33,100, and the ST trim increases the price to about $49,000. That’s about a $7,000 increase.
The 2021 Ford Expedition starts at around $49,625. The 2022 model will probably increase due to all of the upcoming changes. The Expedition could be revealed on September 21st, so hopefully, we’ll learn about all its racing and off-roading upgrades.
Don’t forget about the 2022 Expedition Timberline
That’s right. The 2022 Ford Expedition could gain a Timberline trim for off-roading. The spy shots of the Expedition Timberline are different because you can see the addition of orange tow hooks on the front.
You can also see the Timberline logo on the middle of the bumper, so that’s a significant clue. Other updates include new turn signals with the shape of three small LED stripes on each side. Rumors suggest the Expedition Timberline looks a little taller.
It could be sporting a factory-installed suspension lift along with other upgrades. It could gain more power as mentioned above and larger all-terrain tires. We’re curious to know when a hybrid powertrain will enter the mix.
Alone with new trims, the Expedition will feature an updated interior design with enhanced tech. We can’t wait to see what its mid-cycle refresh brings to the table.

More info about From Wikipedia:
Ford Motor Company (commonly known as Ford) is an American multinational automobile manufacturer headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, United States. It was founded by Henry Ford and incorporated on June 16, 1903. The company sells automobiles and commercial vehicles under the Ford brand, and luxury cars under its Lincoln luxury brand.
Ford also owns Brazilian SUV manufacturer Troller, an 8% stake in Aston Martin of the United Kingdom and a 32% stake in Jiangling Motors. It also has joint-ventures in China (Changan Ford), Taiwan (Ford Lio Ho), Thailand (AutoAlliance Thailand), Turkey (Ford Otosan), and Russia (Ford Sollers). The company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and is controlled by the Ford family; they have minority ownership but the majority of the voting power.
Ford introduced methods for large-scale manufacturing of cars and large-scale management of an industrial workforce using elaborately engineered manufacturing sequences typified by moving assembly lines; by 1914, these methods were known around the world as Fordism.
Ford’s former UK subsidiaries Jaguar and Land Rover, acquired in 1989 and 2000 respectively, were sold to the Indian automaker Tata Motors in March 2008. Ford owned the Swedish automaker Volvo from 1999 to 2010. In 2011, Ford discontinued the Mercury brand, under which it had marketed entry-level luxury cars in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the Middle East since 1938.
Ford is the second-largest U.S.-based automaker (behind General Motors) and the fifth-largest in the world (behind Toyota, Volkswagen, Hyundai and General Motors) based on 2015 vehicle production. At the end of 2010, Ford was the fifth largest automaker in Europe. The company went public in 1956 but the Ford family, through special Class B shares, still retain 40 percent voting rights.
During the financial crisis at the beginning of the 21st century, it struggled financially to the point of collapse which was in large part prevented by President George W. Bush announcing his emergency financial rescue plan to help Ford Motors as well as Chrysler LLC and General Motors, making immediately available $13.4 billion to the automaker. Ford Motors has since returned to profitability.
Ford was the eleventh-ranked overall American-based company in the 2018 Fortune 500 list, based on global revenues in 2017 of $156.7 billion. In 2008, Ford produced 5.532 million automobiles and employed about 213,000 employees at around 90 plants and facilities worldwide.
