Full-size SUV buyers are getting younger and more adventurous. And Ford is prepared to meet those millennials head-on — and fend off some competition from the Jeep Wagoneer — with the new Expedition Timberline trim. Don't view the Timberline as the soft-roader alternative to the F-150 Raptor; the new trim gives the Expedition some seriously badass off-roading upgrades that befit a vehicle called the Expedition.

The Expedition Timberline gets Ford's high-output twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine from the Lincoln Navigator, which puts out 440 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. The previous highs available on the Expedition were 400 hp and 480 lb-ft.

Ford gives the Expedition Timberline the Ford F-150 Raptor's skid plate and the Trail Turn Assist feature for tighter radius turns from the Bronco. The Expedition Timberline runs on 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires and offers 10.6 inches of ground clearance, more than the Jeep Wagoneer.

Ford also has a new Stealth Performance Package for the Limited and Limited Max Expedition. The package, which uses the high-output 3.5-liter V6, offers a sport-tuned suspension for on-road performance. As "stealth" would suggest, there's a lot of black detailing. The trim provides a gloss-black grille and gloss-black mirror caps, roof rails and running boards. The Stealth Performance Package includes 22-inch premium black aluminum wheels with red brake calipers. There's even a black Ford emblem.

The Expedition upgrades round out an impressive Ford SUV lineup

Ford has pivoted away from cars, and we're now seeing the fruits of that in their SUV lineup. Want an off-roader? Ford can now offer seriously capable versions of the Bronco Sport, Bronco and Expedition. Want a green option? Ford has the all-electric Mustang Mach E and hybrid versions of the Escape and Explorer. Need a bit more luxury? You can head over to the Lincoln section and check out the Aviator and Navigator.

Maybe you want a truck instead? Well, Ford does those pretty well too.
