Camping Review: 2022 Ford Expedition Max
I don’t recall ever having a favourite SUV, but I now know which I’d most like to have if I could have any SUV I wished. Let me tell you a story about the 2022 Ford Expedition Max.
Over an extended test-drive together, there were many moments where I fell in love with Max — and a few where I wanted to yell at Max as well. Before long, I realized I appreciated this machine the most not while driving, but instead, while it was parked for a few days. Eventually, I returned Max to its rightful owners, hoping very much that one day I’d have a Max of my own.
An Expedition Max is a lengthy machine: basically a stretch version of the F-150-based Expedition upon which it’s built. A foot of added length earns the ‘MAX’ badge on the tailgate, and cargo capacity behind the third seating row is increased considerably. It also turns this cruiser into a fantastic place for adults to sleep very comfortably during a camping trip. More on that later.
My Ford Expedition Max Platinum tester got second-row captain’s chairs and a third-row split bench, all of which power flip and fold to create a flat surface in seconds. Just press a button, and all of the seats disappear, going from people-mover to cargo van in five seconds flat. And what a massive cargo van it is.
