2022 Wagoneer vs Ford Expedition

Have you been thinking about purchasing a three-row SUV? If so, you've probably seen just how many options there are on the market today, and how complicated it can be to decide which one is right for you. One option that's been getting a lot of attention is the new 2022 Wagoneer, a premium three-row SUV that offers a blend of style and luxury paired with off-road prowess. Another mainstay within the segment is the 2021 Ford Expedition, which has features like Wi-Fi, a sunroof, and tri-zone climate control. In an effort to illustrate which SUV best fits your lifestyle, we'll be comparing both these options down below to see how their power, capabilities, and various features compare. To discover which option is right for you, keep reading.

2022 Wagoneer Power & Handling

The 2022 Wagoneer has two available trim levels, both of which feature a muscular powertrain which helps the SUV reach its best-in-class towing capacity of 10,000 pounds. Under the hood, you'll find a 5.7-liter V8 engine paired with two electric motors as part of the eTorque mild hybrid system. The motors are powered by a 48-volt battery pack which lends the Wagoneer exceptional fuel efficiency. The engine pairs with a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, and the whole system produces 392 horsepower and 404 lb-ft of torque. Aside from its impressive towing capacity, the Wagoneer also has the power to take on all conditions with its Quadra-Lift Air Suspension and available Selec-Terrain Traction Management System. It also has a water-fording capacity of up to 24 inches, and 4-wheel drive comes standard with three available 4X4 systems.

2021 Ford Expedition Power & Handling

Like the Wagoneer, the 2021 Ford Expedition also has just one powertrain for its lineup, but it also features five different trim levels rather than two, so there's very little variation in terms of power throughout the collection. The Expedition's powertrain features a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. All in all, this system provides the Expedition with 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque, and the SUV also comes with standard rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is an available option to all trim levels, which comes hand-in-hand with a traction optimization system similar to the Wagoneer's Selec-Terrain system. The Expedition can tow up to 9,300 pounds, a figure which sounds impressive until you meet the Wagoneer with its 10,000-pound capacity.

2022 Wagoneer Features & Design

The Wagoneer has a stunning exterior with standard 20-inch wheels, a Wagoneer front-end badge, and a striking grille design. Inside, it has standard Nappa leather upholstery, ambient LED lighting, and a standard 12-inch Uconnect 5 touchscreen. The Uconnect 5 is the fastest-ever version of the system, and it includes wireless connectivity for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and multiple user profiles. The Wagoneer also has on-board 4G LTE Wi-Fi, wireless smartphone charging, an available Front Passenger Display touchscreen, and an industry-exclusive McIntosh sound system. Other features include a robust standard safety package, massaging front seats, and heated and ventilated seats in the first and second rows.

2021 Ford Expedition Features & Design

The Ford Expedition lineup is a bit inconsistent, starting out with the base XL trim that feels somewhat out of touch with the rest of the models. The XL seats just five passengers while the rest of the trims seat eight, and also has cloth upholstery, and lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Some of its standard features include the CoPilot 360 safety suite (which excludes adaptive cruise control and parking sensors), Wi-Fi, and ample cupholders. Other features found on higher trims include tri-zone automatic climate control, leather interior, and a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.


It's clear to see that between these two SUVs, the Wagoneer is undoubtedly the stronger option. It has a higher towing capacity, more luxurious features, and a more thorough standard safety suite.
