The Expedition Timberline is perfect for the Overlander group that still use their vehicle everyday but, can escape to the wilderness for a relaxing weekend camping.

This trend has become very popular and people have been looking to the car manufactures to provide vehicles that are capable of both. During the rescission of the 1980’s it seemed like everybody was camping but I think that was for a different reason. Off -roading is simplified in this Timberline model. Vital components are equipped with skid plates including the gas tank. Front and rear stabilizer bars and optional electronic limited slip differential will help you get over the challenging terrain. 

The suspension on the Timberline is different then the other models of Expeditions. Called rough road suspension features premium off-road shocks, tuning, and extra ground clearance to get you where you need to go. Sitting on 18” black painted with laser etched wheels feature the Timberline logo mounted on P265/70R18 E tires make any terrain simple. Rugged black running boards make for easy entry or exit. Black roof rack with an optional factory storage box. Optional panoramic vista roof is available.


10-way power drivers and 8-way power passenger seats with optional leather trim material. 3 row seating fits up to 8 people. USB charging stations through out the vehicle and in case you are wondering 9 cup holders and yes, I counted. AM/FM Stereo, MP3 capable with 6 speakers and SiriusXM satellite radio. Optional B& O sound system by Bang & Olufsen and dual rear seat entertainment system.


3.5 L Eco Boost V6 engine with twin intercooled turbos producing 440 horse power and 510 lb ft of torque. Mated to a 10-speed transmission with progressive range select.


Lane centring system has been updated for 2022 and can help you stay in your lane, even if your
distracted you can rest assure the smart feature of this system can scan the vehicles position between the lines in the road ahead and can alert you if you start drifting into the other lane. Trail control is already available on Raptor and Tremor pickups now this is carried over to the Timberline. There are sensors that determine wheel speed when braking, if one wheel starts to lock up it will apply the right amount of brake force to that wheel to keep it from sliding. Standard safety equipment includes pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, dual stage front air bags, side impact airbags, safety canopy system, traction control and SOS post crash alert system. There is also an optional 360-degree camera with trailer reverse guidance.
