New 2022 Ford Excursion is still a subject of rumors. Its comeback is possible to happen, but no official words from the Blue Oval manufacturer at the moment. However, you can find a lot of reliable sources, writing about the comeback of the largest SUV ever. The Excursion makes perfect sense as the manufacturers are reviving their older nameplates.
On top of that, bigger is better nowadays as you can see what is happening in the automotive world. This SUV lasted from 1999 to 2005, before it was discounted. Today, its comeback is more probable, than ever before. There are a lot of interesting stories about this model so here is everything we know.
2022 Excursion Dimensions
Excursion’s large proportions are what makes this SUV so special. How big will be the 2022 Ford Excursion is the real question? We read a lot of speculations in the last few months. Right now, we know that Ford will have to deliver something completely new. Of course, we are talking about the exterior design. The styling will have to be different so the new Excursion won’t look anyway near its predecessor.
It is hard to predict how large the all-new Excursion will be. The previous variant was 137 inches long. To compare, the current Chevy Suburban is 134 long. That means the 2022 Excursion will once again become the largest SUV in the world. On top of that, some sources are even predicting almost 140 inches of vehicle’s length.
The interior of the 2022 Ford Excursion will also have to depart from its roots. Nowadays, the goal is to deliver a very modern cabin that is not far behind the rivals. Mentioned Chevy Suburban is a luxury SUV, so Blue Oval will have to deliver astonishing interior design with a lot of tech. Still, the highlight is the interior room and Excursion will be the most spacious model, once it arrives. There will be three rows of seats and a room for eight passengers.
The Excursion model is known for impressive headroom and legroom in all three rows. On top of that, the cargo area is incredibly spacious as well. The Suburban SUV offers 145 cubic feet of cargo room and Excursion will offer slightly more. As for the technology features, we expect to see new SYNC4 infotainment, plenty of driver-assistance, and much more.
Diesel Engine is a Must
The original Excursion SUV was based on the F-250 Super Duty truck. The approaching 2022 Ford Excursion will stick to its roots and we expect a lot of cues taken from the Super Duty lineup. The biggest similarity will be the engine lineup. This is a no brainer as the Excursion SUV will ride on a 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine.
It is the most powerful gasoline engine in the heavy-duty segments as it delivers 430 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. However, the diesel engine is the biggest mystery. The Excursion model simply has to offer at least one diesel powertrain. Logically, it is a 6.7-liter turbodiesel with 475 horsepower and 1050 lb-ft of torque. But, we wouldn’t be surprised if Ford surprises us with a different unit.
2022 Ford Excursion Release Date, Price
Once it arrives, the 2022 Ford Excursion will probably cost around $50,000. On the other hand, it could cost even more if Ford opts for a more luxury approach. According to some sources, this model will arrive at some point in 2022.
