The upcoming 2023 Ford Expedition Hybrid is about to arrive. This popular SUV will finally obtain a hybrid powertrain. Reportedly, it is the same PowerBoost system, present in the Ford F-150 pickup truck. Thanks to that, the Expedition model will gain even more power and improved fuel efficiency. On top of that, this SUV could get an all-electric powertrain in the next two years.
At the moment, the Expedition is the largest SUV in Ford’s lineup, competing with models such as Toyota Sequoia and Chevrolet Tahoe. The new model will receive a mid-cycle facelift, but the hybrid powertrain should be the highlight of the 2023MY.
Exterior Facelift and Packages
Revisions for 2022 include stylistic changes along the lines of the current F-150, such as upgrades to the grille and lighting system, as well as additional wheel options. Therefore, the 2023 Ford Expedition Hybrid will gain a minor facelift. The hybrid variant will look exactly the same as the regular Expedition SUV with a gasoline engine.
The Stealth Package, which adds more power and uses 22-inch wheels with tighter suspension, is available for the Limited trim level. Furthermore, there is an off-road Timberline trim level available. As before, the Expedition MAX model will be on offer. It is a longer variant, measuring 221.9 inches, while the regular model is 210 inches long.
Again, the 2022MY arrived with some important interior updates. That includes more upright materials, a new infotainment system, and a larger 12-inch touchscreen. Furthermore, this model comes with an optional 15.5-inch portrait-oriented display.
Thanks to that, the 2023 Ford Expedition Hybrid will not receive major cabin upgrades. Still, this SUV will use an updated SYNC4 system. Furthermore, it will offer an optional BlueCruise hands-free driving system. The interior will remain spacious and the upper trim levels will once again provide real luxury.
Ford Expedition Hybrid Specs
The all-new 2023 Ford Expedition Hybrid will borrow a hybrid system from the Ford F-150 truck. It is a well-known PowerBoost setup. The F-150 model comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, whereas the hybrid system adds 47 hp, producing a total of 490 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque. Furthermore, this pickup truck gets 24 mpg combined.
As for the Expedition SUV, the base 3.5-liter V6 engine develops 375 horsepower and a torque of 470 lb-ft. This means the Expedition Hybrid model will surely create 400 hp at least. A ten-speed automatic transmission will remain. On the other hand, we don’t know how significantly the fuel efficiency will improve. Blue Oval carmaker will reveal more details in the coming weeks.
2023 Ford Expedition Hybrid Price, Release Date
The price of the base Expedition SUV starts at around $50,000. Therefore, the 2023 Ford Expedition Hybrid should cost closer to $60k. Like in the F-150 model, Ford will make a hybrid system available in all trim levels. This engine will be optional and the sales should begin later in 2022.
