An eyewitness was able to capture a camouflaged prototype of the updated Ford Expedition SUV. The full-size new for the 2022 model year will debut sometime this year.

The fourth-generation Ford Expedition, which appeared as a novelty for the 2018 model year, was a significant upgrade from the third-generation SUV version. The Blue Oval has equipped the machine with many different amenities and features, reducing its weight and increasing its engine power, which has helped increase sales. Now the Ford team is preparing another update for Expedition – a test prototype of the novelty was captured by an eyewitness on a public road in Michigan (USA).

The test car features a raised camouflage pattern that hides the front and rear panels and fenders.

Ford is excellent at hiding any changes from the scrutiny of onlookers, as the camouflage completely obscures the lighting elements. The headlights and taillights are also due for a redesign, which likely coincides with minor changes to the front and rear bumpers and a redesigned grille. The test car also has an unusual elongated exhaust pipe protruding from under the rear bumper.

The current fourth-generation Expedition has one engine, a turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, although Ford offers two power options. The entry-level model produces 375 horsepower (637 Nm). This 400 hp motor is also available to buyers. (650 Nm). A 10-speed automatic transmission is offered for both power ratings of the same engine. The 2022 version of the SUV is expected to receive the hybrid powertrain that the automaker unveiled for the 2021 F-150 pickup. Inside, the Expedition will likely receive an upgraded infotainment system.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the Carlex studio presented a sports version of the Ford Transit. As part of their next project, the guys from the Carlex Design tuning studio presented a “package” of external and internal changes for the American Ford Transit Custom van.
