2023 Ford Expedition Exterior and Dimensions

2023 Expedition Exterior

There's only so much you can do when it comes to the overall shape of a full-size SUV. Designers must rely on the grille, headlights, fenders, and taillights to give a full-size truck or SUV a distinctive look. Fortunately, the latest Expedition looks a little more exciting this year thanks to fresh exterior details like the grille, taillights, and wheels.

Ford relies on the front end and the alloys to do the heavy lifting in the design department. The grille and headlights merge nicely to form an imposing presence. Even base models now come with LED reflector headlamps as standard equipment. The new Timberline stands out with its Ember Red front tow hooks, steel skid plates, Twin Spar Black grille, and Timberline badging. Wheel sizes range from 18 inches to a massive 22 inches. A panoramic moonroof is standard higher up in the range.

The Expedition has an overall length of 210 inches. It's 83.6 inches in width with the mirrors folded in and 93.4 inches when they're folded out. The maximum height is 76.6 inches on 4x2 models and 76.4 inches on 4x4 models. Most impressive of all is the 122.5-inch wheelbase, which is longer than the 120.9-inch wheelbase of the Chevrolet Tahoe. Ground clearance is 9.8 inches but this goes all the way up to 10.6 inches on the new Timberline.

Ford supplies figures for approach/breakover/departure angles, even though the Expedition isn't marketed as a serious off-roader. The provided figures are 23.4/21.5/22.2 degrees for 4x2 models, respectively, and 23.3/21.4/21.9 degrees for 4x4 derivatives. The new Timberlane shows its superiority in this area with approach/breakover/departure angles of 28.5/21.9/23.7 degrees.

The curb weights start at 5,306 pounds and tops out at 5,532 lbs in the heaviest configuration.

Exterior Colors

Buyers can choose between four no-cost exterior colors on the base XL STX trim, consisting of Forged Green Metallic, Agate Black Metallic, Iconic Silver Metallic, and Oxford White. The XLT is the next trim and has a much broader color palette with the metallic additions being Infinite Blue ($495), Dark Matter, Star White ($795), Stone Blue ($495), and Rapid Red ($495). With its dark exterior trim and orange accents, the Timberline has a moodier color palette that removes Rapid Red and Iconic Silver. The top two trims also have one or two changes but don't add any new colors from the ones already listed here. With the Stealth Package equipped to models compatible with it, an Ebony Black grille, black headlamp bezels, and a black tailgate applique give the Expedition quite a menacing look.
