For the new model year, Ford has invested heavily in the spirit of adventure. To that end, you get the Timberline, which receives a raised ride height, standard four-wheel drive, Bridgestone Dueler all-terrain tires, and underbody skidplates. It retains the 2.3L EcoBoost engine, though, but makes better use of it thanks to a seven-mode Terrain Management System. Because of the off-road accouterments, the Timberline gets improved approach/departure angles of 23.5/23.7 degrees. Visually, Timberline badges, unique alloy wheels, and red tow hooks are among the key visual upgrades, while the interior gets rugged ActiveX cloth seat trim.
