The 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline has the formula for excellent off-road capability that could take families on incredible new adventures. Ford hasn’t stopped there, though, as they have made an Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept vehicle to show potential customers how they can get even more out of their Expedition when it comes to taking things into the wilderness. And that’s what the Ford Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept vehicle is all about. The SUV was showcased during the Overland Expo East in Arrington, Virginia.

The Overland Expo is a premier event for adventure travel enthusiasts that features demonstrations and hundreds of vendors that tailor their products to adventure traveling, camping, and lately, vehicles. It’s become the new hot spot for automakers to showcase their products as people become more interested in camping and off-roading. For example, the GMC Canyon AT4 OverlandX concept debuted at Overland Expo West in Colorado back in August.

2022 Ford Expedition Timberline: Off-Grid Mods

The Ford Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept focuses on multi-day off-roading functionality and ease of use. The first thing anyone would notice about the Off-Grid concept is the CG Detroit custom topographic wrap over the factory Forged Green exterior paint paired with custom DeeZee Rock Rail Hoop Steps. The 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline starts with a 10.6-inch ground clearance which is improved with this concept by adding Fox Performance Elite Series 2.5-inch shocks with Dual Speed Compression adjusters and remote reservoirs front and rear. In addition, the 17-inch Method Race Wheels with Bead Grip technology wrapped with 35-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires gives the vehicle an aggressive and capable look.

A 50-inch Rigid light bar is mounted above the windshield with an additional 20-inch light bar below the grille. In addition, D-SS Rigid side shooter cube lights are installed on top of the hood. Rigid spotlights are also mounted within the wheel wells and liftgate to illuminate those areas further. There’s also a switch that can turn the lights red when bugs start to get out of hand.

Expedition Timberline Mobile Campsite

On the inside of the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept, an EZ STAK custom aluminum dual storage drawer unit sits under a custom Luno camping mattress with room for two. Luno also provides a concept-specific Base extender to make sleeping more comfortable, along with window shades and a portable USB fan. Camping off the grid means electricity is scarce, so a Clarios AGM battery designed specifically for vehicles can support the most demanding needs.

The Expedition Timerbline Off-Grid concept mobile campsite features a Thule Tepui Explorer tent on the roof, factory-available transmission shield, Overland Vehicle Systems’ Nomadi 180-degree awning, and a Wild Land portable privacy room shower. A Turtleback Expedition Series Trailer matches the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept with Method brand wheels and Grabber all-terrain tires along with the topographic wrap. The trailer is designed to store additional gear and includes a two-burner propane stove and a deep-well sink with a pair of drop-down tables. It also has a 42-gallon water tank and a six-gallon water heater with an external shower hookup.

If you missed your chance to check out the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept over the weekend, it’ll appear at the Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas, November 2-5.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
