Full-size SUVs are imagined primarily as people and cargo haulers, but even these super-long and bulky vehicles can sometimes come in off-road dedicated versions. The Expedition Timberline is a perfect example, as it represents the Blue Oval Company’s take on the more rugged iteration of the well-known three-row SUV. It brings a full load of upgrades and after the 2022 model year update, we are pretty sure that the 2024 Ford Expedition Timberline will carry on without more important changes.
Therefore, you may expect to see a familiar design, which brings a solid portion of exclusive details. Of course, some of them are in terms of styling, but it’s also worth mentioning that there are some pretty serious pieces of additional hardware. Finally, let’s not forget that this model is powered by the most capable variant of the well-known 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6.
With no bigger changes to come, we expect that the 2024 Ford Expedition Timberline will hit the market sometime late in the year.
2024 Ford Expedition Timberline Design
As for the overall design, the 2024 Ford Expedition Timberline will continue in the same way, which means it will feature a good portion of exclusive features. As mentioned, this is an off-road version, so it’s not a surprise that it comes with lots of styling upgrades that accentuate the model’s off-road character.
Still, the key upgrades are those in terms of mechanics. There, you will quickly notice suspension upgrades, as the Timberline stands more than 10 inches from the ground. This SUV features more rugged suspension components, which come in combination with 18-inch black wheels and massive all-terrain tires. Furthermore, four-wheel drive is standard, of course, just like a two-speed transfer case. Finally, let’s not forget the electronic limited-slip differential, as well as the model’s exclusive Trail Control system, which helps keep traction on hard terrains.
Of course, upgrades continue on the inside and we have no doubt that the 2024 Ford Expedition Timberline will remain the same. The first thing you’ll notice is a unique upholstery and color scheme, but the Timberline goes beyond that with so many details.
At the same time, the overall layout remains kinda familiar, with the same overall layout as the standard model. Naturally, that doesn’t just refer to the aesthetics. The seating configuration is also the same, with three spacious rows of seats and the ability to accommodate eight adult passengers. The cargo area may not be as spacious as in the case of the Chevy Tahoe, but there is still more than enough space for the vast majority of potential buyers.
As for the standard equipment, the 2024 Ford Expedition Timberline will, just like the 2023 model, come as a build-up over the XTL trim. That means that the list of standard equipment will include keyless entry with push-button start, 12-inch infotainment screen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Trailer Tow package, power-folding third row, power-adjustable front passenger seat, power-adjustable pedals and steering column, driver’s seat memory setting, wireless charging and many more.
Also, there is a pretty decent amount of active safety and driver-assist features. Some of the highlights are blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking and many more.
2024 Ford Expedition Timberline Engine
As for the 2024 Ford Expedition Timberline specs, things will also remain the same. This version will continue with the most capable variant of the well-known 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, which puts out around 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes coupled with Ford’s well-known 10-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to all four wheels in all Timberline models.
As mentioned, the transmission also includes a two-speed transfer case, along with an electronically locking rear differential, among other off-road upgrades. Due to the off-road suspensions, the max towing capacity is notably lower compared to standard Expedition models and goes around 6.000 pounds.
2024 Ford Expedition Timberline Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Ford Expedition Timberline will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a starting price of around 74.000 dollars.
