Bigger is better! That’s is something really hard to beat, especially when it comes to sport utility vehicles. If we go two decades back, we can see that was the time when the biggest SUV on the planet was launched. Of course, we are talking about the original version of Excursion, which arrived in 1999 and remained in production for the next six years. These days, we are getting reports about the 2022 Ford Excursion comeback.
If the Blue Oval company really plans to do such a thing, the first thing that comes to mind is how big is it going to be. We have no doubt that the Super Duty F-250 would once again serve as the basis, though the new model would also be notably different compared to the original. Still, the base design would remain pretty much the same and we would once again see the biggest SUV in action. Still, keep in mind that the company is still quiet on this model, so take the following paragraphs with a reserve.
2022 Ford Excursion Design
Despite that the current hiatus lasts for nearly 15 years, we have no doubt that the new version would stick to the same principles as the original model. That’s probably the only thing we can say for sure at this point. Simply, the current Expedition is already impressive in terms of size, so the only way the 2022 Ford Excursion could go is to be even bigger.
For that occasion, there is no doubt that the Super Duty F-250 would once again serve as the basis. The new SUV would ride on the same platform and share pretty much the same mechanics. Still, the most interesting thing about the new model would be the size. At this point, it’s still early to talk about the exact numbers but we have no doubt that the new model would be even bigger. The original version featured more than 137 inches between the wheels but if we consider that Chevy Suburban has got pretty close and now measures more than 134 inches, it’s obvious that the new more will probably feature more than 140 inches between the axles.
The new SUV will certainly be mostly about utility, but we have no doubt that the company will also do a good job in terms of styling. As we already mentioned, the new model will be based on Super Duty pickup trucks but that won’t include just mechanics, but aesthetics as well. We presume that the front end will take a lot of inspiration from the F-250, though there is also plenty of room for a couple of exclusive details. The rest of the vehicle will come in a typical SUV manner, with a boxy shape and long, long wagon body style.
The 2022 Ford Excursion interior will be the key selling point, most likely. Simply, with such impressive dimensions, we have no doubt that the new model will feature tons of space on the inside. When it comes to the passenger room, we count on three very generous rows of seats, with plenty of leg and headroom. The total capacity will go up to eight passengers. When it comes to the cargo area, we count on spectacular numbers, notably bigger compared to the new Suburban, which offers around 145 cubic feet of the overall cargo volume.
When it comes to the dashboard design, the new SUV will probably be a little bit on a utilitarian side. We count on a lot of truck-ish elements, just like it’s the case with the Expedition. Still, we have no doubt that the company will utilize a lot of quality materials, while the long list of standard tech features will make everything look much more opulent.
2021 Ford Excursion Engines
Considering that the new SUV will share mechanics with Super Duty trucks, we have no doubt that it will borrow some of the engines as well. One of the first engines that come to mind is a new 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine, which puts out around 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. A more basic 6.2-liter V8 should be reserved for standard models. This unit delivers around 385 horsepower.
The 2022 Ford Excursion diesel is another thing that comes to our minds and if it comes, we have no doubt it would use the monstrous 6.7-liter turbodiesel with 475 horsepower and 1.050 pound-feet of torque.
2021 Ford Excursion Release Date and Price
This SUV is still just a rumor, so take this article with a big reserve. Still, keep in mind that many reports suggest this comeback, so the chance that something is really cooking is actually big enough to expect something in the future. If it arrives, we presume that the base 2022 Ford Excursion price would go around 50.000 dollars, roughly.
