Ford has unveiled a one-off version of the Expedition called the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept vehicle. It’s debuting at the Overland Expo East in Arrington, Virginia.
“The Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept provides a futuristic view of how family adventurers can potentially get even more out of an Expedition Timberline, including the absolute best mobile basecamp,” said Robert Varto, program manager of the concept.
To make it even more “adventure-ready” the concept rides two-inches higher thanks to its custom FOX Performance Elite Series 2.5-inch shocks with Dual Speed Compression adjusters and remote reservoirs front and rear. It also gets 17-inch Method Race Wheels with Bead Grip technology that are wrapped with 35-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires.
Once the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept gets to its destination, it’s long list of accessories make it the perfect companion. Including a Thule Tepui Explorer tent with crossbars, an Overland Vehicle Systems’ Nomadic 180-degree awning, and a Wild Land portable privacy room shower. To illuminate the road ahead, it gets a 50-inch Rigid light bar above the windshield, a 50-inch Rigid light bar in the grille and D-SS Rigid side shooter cube lights on the hood.
Inside there’s an EZ STAK custom aluminum dual storage drawer unit that sits under a custom Luno camping mattress that has room for two. The interior is kept comfortable with Base Extender window shades and a portable USB fan.
Lastly the concept also has a Turtleback Expedition Series Trailer that matches the Expedition Timberline Off-Grid concept with Method brand wheels and Grabber all-terrain tires. The trailer features a two-burner propane stove and deep-well sink, a pair of drop-down tables, 42-gallon water tank and six-gallon water heater with external shower hookup, plus pancake propane tank. A refrigerator and a 100-watt solar panel are also available.
