One of the largest SUVS in the market, the Ford Excursion, is about to get a redesign in 2022. As far as we know, the new model should be called 2023 Ford Excursion, and it will receive many upgrades over the current generation. First of all, the design is changed a bit, and the Excursion will be reportedly built on the same platform as the F-250 Super Duty truck.
We also got information that it would be at least 230 inches long, which means it would be bigger than the Chevy Suburban and Ford Expedition Max. In case you didn’t know, both mentioned models are offering lengths over 221 inches.
What Is Expected for Design?
The exterior of the 2023 Ford Excursion will be definitively more stylish than before. Considering the Excursion uses the same sturdy platform as the F-250 model, expect many benefits, especially inside. On the cosmetic side, this full-size SUV will reportedly receive many upgrades. First of all, it should wear the new design language, albeit the exact appearance is difficult to anticipate.
Many believe that it could get the same treatment as the latest Maverick. This means some grille, headlights and probably a hood as well. Also, the Excursion could be much bigger than the Suburban or Expedition Max.
2023 Ford Excursion Interior
As one of the larger models in class, the 2023 Ford Excursion should offer a very comfortable cabin. This model comes with 3-rows of seats and can accommodate up to eight passengers.
For 2023YM, Blue Oval could use many cues from some of existing models. We assume that it will share many elements with the recently redesigned F-250 truck. This means the entry-level model will come with dual-zone air conditioning, vinyl flooring and upholstery, and remote start/lock/unlock. The infotainment system might be larger than before, but surely expect Wi-Fi for up to 10 devices, AM/FM radio, MP3 player, few USB-C ports, and four speakers.
Updates and Tweaks Under the Hood
The forthcoming 2023 Ford Excursion will probably introduce some new engines. The first possibility is a brand-new V8 that should be capable of producing 430 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. As you can see, this engine is very potent and also available on some Super Duty models.
Besides this engine, the manufacturer may also offer an old 6.2-l V8 optionally. This engine under the F-250 model makes 375 hp and 430 lb-ft. Ford is keen on turbocharged units, so we don’t expect it as an option.
Will There Be a New 2023 Ford Excursion?
The answer is yes. According to numerous reports, sales of the 2023 Ford Excursion should reportedly start sometime this year. However, we don’t have official confirmation yet, but expect it in the coming months. As we said, the new Ford Excursion will come bigger, and it should excess the size of the models such as the Chevy Suburban and even the Ford Expedition Max.
The price of $60,000 seems to be rational since the current Expedition costs around $54,000 for the base model. Like before, this full-size SUV competes directly with models such as the Chevy Suburban, Tahoe, and others.
