The upcoming 2022 Ford Excursion is still not official. This is an interesting model because you can find plenty of rumors about it. We already wrote about the Excursion SUV and its possible comeback. It didn’t happen and now its return is questionable once again. Excursion is the largest SUV ever, based on the F-250 heavy-duty truck. It was firstly introduced by Ford in 1999 and it lasted for six years.
Now, reviving older nameplates is a popular move by every established manufacturer. Whatsoever, Ford is about to introduce the Bronco model, which was also a big hit back in the days. And just like Bronco, Excursion will have to depart from its original roots, in order to be competitive. However, some things will remain, most importantly, its large dimensions.
2022 Excursion Dimensions
The new version of this iconic SUV will have to be different. This means the 2022 Ford Excursion won’t wear the same design as its predecessor. Instead, Blue Oval will deliver something completely new, in line with modern trends. One thing cannot change and that’s SUV’s size. It is the main reason why the Excursion nameplate was so popular.
This is not a problem as most of the automakers are canceling the productions of regular cars and smaller vehicles in general. While it is too early to talk about exact dimensions, have in mind that the previous Excursion was 137 inches long. To compare, the current Chevrolet Suburban is 134 inches long. Some sources are even writing about 140 inches long 2022 Excursion.
On the inside, the 2022 Ford Excursion will take a more modern approach. However, the highlight is cabin space as Excursion will offer plenty of it. With such impressive dimensions, Excursion will be the most spacious SUV ever without any doubt. Because of that, we expect to see three generous rows of seats with ample legroom and headroom. There will be room for eight passengers, as before. Chevrolet Suburban offers 145 cubic feet of cargo area and the new Excursion SUV will offer even more.
It is too early to talk about exact figures, but Ford will deliver it all. The dashboard will be modern and it will look closer to the dash inside the current Expedition SUV. We are waiting for more details regarding the list of standard features, optional features, upholstery, and much more.
Excursion SUV Will Offer Gasoline and Diesel Engines
As we mentioned, Excursion SUV is based on the Ford F-250 Super Duty truck. New 2022 Ford Excursion will probably follow the same path as its predecessor. Because of that, this large SUV will ride on a 7.3-liter V8 engine. This engine is currently available in the Super Duty lineup and Ford says it is the most powerful gasoline engine in the heavy-duty segment.
It can produce 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. We don’t know if Blue Oval plans to offer the previous 6.2-liter V8 gasoline with 385 hp. The biggest question about the new Excursion is the diesel powertrain option. If this becomes reality, then the full-size SUV will offer an optional 6.7-liter turbodiesel. This potent diesel engine generates up to 475 horsepower and an astonishing 1050 lb-ft of torque.
2022 Ford Excursion Price, Release Date
At this moment, everything is just a rumor, so we are waiting to hear the first official details from the Blue Oval. The 2022 Ford Excursion could arrive at some point in 2022 and its price will start at around $50,000.
