Rumors of the 2022 Ford Excursion coming back continues to grow among car enthusiasts. They even hope this new Excursion will be more powerful than the previous generation.
The history of Ford Excursion is full of impressive designs. The genuine Excursion surely occupies an exceptional place when it is to SUVs. We talk about a car model that was released in 1999 and produced until 2006. Sales started to decline in the end despite the nice response, mainly due to the low mpg rating. Today, the potential of such SUVs rises on the market again. So, don’t be surprised if we hear many reports about the 2022 Ford Excursion.
2022 Ford Redesigned Exterior
Given the age difference, Excursion’s comeback certainly brings significant innovation. However, the design method generally remains the same. Let’s take another look at an SUV with Super Duty based. It is very high performance and provides a lot of space in it. Take the next paragraph carefully as it is just a rumor at this point.
As mentioned earlier, the general design is not much different from the original concept. Let’s take a look at the big SUV based on F250 Super Duty Pickup. Both models have something in common, especially in mechanical terms. The chassis has not changed, and the suspension is stiff by today’s standards, but it has significant advantages in payload and traction capacity.
In this case, you will find the rumored upcoming 2022 Ford Excursion is considered one of the biggest in its segment, offering the convenience of an SUV to many. This version measures 226.7 inches, 80 inches, and 77.4 inches, and it has a cargo space of 165 cubic feet.
When we talk about exterior design, size takes the first place to come to mind. This is the largest Ford SUV that has ever been manufactured, and of course, we hope the new model will be bigger. The previous generation is impressive because it fits a wheelbase of more than 137 inches. However, you have to notice that the new Chevy Suburban is shorter by only 3 inches. The margins aren’t as much as you might think. There is the possibility that the distance of the axles can easily exceed 140 inches.
Stylistically, we don’t expect any surprises. The genuine model fully conforms to the appropriate Super Duty design language and it is expected to be the same for the 2022 Ford Excursion. Consequently, the front end has the same or similar design to the present F250. The other structures are surely slightly different, and the typical station wagon structure is very long and gives a lot of space.
2022 Ford Redesigned Interior
The foremost thing to cross in mind about this 2022 Ford Excursion is its interior. Here, all three rows are expected to have ample legroom, but the cargo area is even more impressive.
On the other hand, the design of its dashboard should show some similarities to F250. Expect a nearly identical layout that’s robust and highly complex, yet guarantees excellent durability and long-term exploits. This model could be certainly wrapped in slightly more sophisticated materials and technical features. Otherwise, everything should stay the same.
2022 Ford Redesigned Engine
This aspect is not surprising. Therefore, the base model is expected to be equipped with a small 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine that produces approximately 385 HP and 430 pound-ft. of torque. We are counting on the large, recently introduced 7.3-liter unit with a maximum output of 430 HP and 475 lb-ft. of torque. Both of them are paired with an automatic transmission of 10-speed.
The 3rd trim level is hard to guess, but many enthusiasts are sure the newly fresh 2022 Excursion can also be equipped with the famous 6.6-liter turbo diesel. This gigantic engine produces an incredible 475 horsepower and 1,050 pound-force of torque, combined with an automatic transmission of 10-speed. Nevertheless, that number of torque isn’t really necessary for travel and it can still be changed.
As of now, the release of the 2022 Ford Excursion is still a rumor. Everything about the release date is still shrouded in thick clouds. The Excursion may come in 2022 soon, but that’s unlikely since Ford has not announced anything about it yet. Regardless of when it will be released, many believe Ford could set a price at $60,000 – $65,000. What is clear, the estimated price is also not an official statement from Ford.
