Introducing the all-new Ford Explorer Timberline. The newest trim from Ford is finally here at Windsor Ford, and it packs a punch becoming the most off-road capable vehicle with more ground clearance than any other Explorer before it; improved approach, steel skid plates, better departure angles, springs, stabilizer bars, and much more.
No matter what kind you are looking at – whether it’s family fun or enjoying the outdoors- this vehicle has got your back.
The exterior styling gives this SUV an aggressive yet functional appearance perfect for exploring new terrain, commuting daily, or going out camping every weekend, and with three rows of seating everyone can enjoy themselves from backseat passengers to front row drivers.
2022 Ford Explorer Timberline Specs
Ford has given the Explorer a total off-road readiness overhaul in creating its latest model, the Timberline. Starting from underneath and most obvious there are rugged 265/65R18 Bridgestone all-terrain tires with an aggressive yet allegedly quiet tread pattern that provides quarter-inch more ground clearance than before, plus mild suspension lift increasing it up to 0.8 inches!
But let’s take a look in great detail at the Ford Explorer Timberline.
The new Explorer is powered by a 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine that produces 300 horsepower and 310 foot-pounds of torque like what you see in the all-new Bronco, paired with an automatic 10-speed transmission for ease of driving in any condition.
Timberline Ground Clearance
The new suspension, high-sidewall Bridgestone Dueler P265/65R-18 (31.6 inch) all-terrain tires, and updated front end design give the Explorer Timberline an approach angle of 23.5 degrees with a max departure angle of 23.7; plus the minimum ground clearance of 8.7 inches for navigating unpaved roads or uneven trails.
If that’s not enough you can also take advantage of traction with a Torsion limited-slip rear differential that will help get your vehicle moving safely over any surface!
Timberline Towing Capacity
The Ford Explorer Timberline models are some of the most versatile, high-end SUVs on-road today. As mentioned, the new model with its 2.3L EcoBoost engine that produces 300 horsepower and 310 lb/ft torque will help the SUV get up those mountain passes or through rough terrains effortlessly with its Class III Trailer Tow Pack 5300-pound max capacity (when equipped properly)!

2022 Ford Explorer Timberline Colours and Exterior
The Explorer Timberline is more than just an appearance package; it has been designed to handle almost everything you throw at it like a pro. Engineers at Ford have fitted the SUV with beefy shocks, springs, and anti-sway bars borrowed from police interceptors for increased ground clearance of 0.8″.
What are the colours of the Ford Explorer Timberline in 2022
As an off-road-oriented SUV designed specifically for those who wish to take their vehicles further than usual, Ford wanted to give it a rugged and outdoorsy look and provided that in it’s promotions. The Forged Green shows prominent in almost all of the advertising and seems like it’s the only available colour option in that trim line but other options include:
- Agate Black
- Iconic Silver
- Star White
- Forged Green
- Carbonized Grey
What’s Different About the Ford Explorer Timberline On The Outside
The most notable difference between the Timberline and other Explorers is that it has a Torsen Limited-slip Differential, which provides better handling on dirt or snow.
It also features 19 mm increased ground clearance; unique front and rear bumpers to increase approach and departure angles (which means they’re more likely not to hit anything while driving off-road) along with steel skid plates for additional protection against impacts. If you’ve been struggling with the back and forth on whether or not you’re ready for a new vehicle seeing how this Explorer handles the weather in Grande Prairie, AB may just be the difference.

A faux leather material called Active X covers them with cloth inserts which make clean up easy (and stylish!). Standard equipment includes rubber liners over carpeted floors.
