Next year promises to be very exciting for Ford Expedition fans. The SUV will be updated with a performance version called the Expedition ST (a first for the model). Another addition will be the Timberline rendition, and we have new photos showing that its development is already on the home stretch.
The prototype full-size SUV had less camouflage than before. Almost all exterior details are now visible except for the front bumper and tailgate. There is almost no camouflage on the headlights, and we can finally look at the C-shaped LED daytime running lights integrated into the groups. The yellow direction indicators have also been redesigned to take the form of three small stripes on each side.
Under the updated lighting in the center of the bumper, we see a completely nude Timberline logo (three mountains). This location is familiar from Explorer Timberline. Even lower, at the edge of the bumper, two orange tow hooks are visible. As far as the photos can tell, the SUV’s body is slightly raised, indicating a suspension upgrade.
Nothing is likely to change under the hood. The current twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 will likely remain, although Timberline risks a little more power than the standard 375 or 400 hp. (American specification). However, in the future, the car will acquire a hybrid power plant from the F-150 pickup.
