Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Ford Expedition ranks 2 out of 6 Large SUVs. The 2017 Ford Expedition gives you three rows of roomy seating, and an available extended wheelbase model offers class-leading interior and cargo space. However, some competing large SUVs offer extra features and better fuel economy.

Pros
Excellent cargo capacity in the EL model
Spacious seating in all three rows
Smooth ride
Powerful engine

Cons
Some low-grade materials in cabin

Old school is in session: The 2017 Ford Expedition teaches a few lessons to today's crossover SUVs with twin-turbo power, luxury-truck touches, and big towing and hauling numbers.
The Expedition isn't just surviving, it's thriving. In 2015 it subbed in a whomping turbo V-6 for its V-8, gained an adaptive suspension and a new infotainment system, and slathered on a fresh layer of luxury touches. A decade or more past its last, serious redesign, the Expedition hasn't ever been better.

Pros
Stronger, higher-mpg engine
Should ride smoother and quieter than ever
Good third-row space in EL model
Plush King Ranch interior
Drives smaller than it looks

Cons
It's still an 8-year-old design
Not easy to park, even with rearview camera
Gas mileage has made gains, but not big ones

There are plenty of car-based crossovers to choose from these days. But there are times when you might want the capabilities of a beefy, traditional SUV. The 2017 Ford Expedition is one of our top recommendations in this segment thanks to massive passenger, cargo and towing capabilities.
The 2017 Ford Expedition carries over with no significant changes.

Pros
Roomy third-row seat
Strong and efficient turbocharged V6
Easy-folding rear seats increase interior flexibility
Tows more than similarly sized crossovers

Cons
Undeniably bulky size makes it difficult to park (especially the extended-wheelbase EL version)
Interior looks a bit dated.

When you're shopping for a full-size luxury SUV there's no reason to compromise. The 2017 Lincoln Navigator offers room for eight, classic American styling and most of the high-tech features you would expect in a modern family vehicle.The 2017 Lincoln Navigator gets no significant changes from the previous model year.

Pros
Serene ride over any kind of road surface
Lots of cargo room in both the standard and extended length versions
Easy-to-use tech interface
Substantial towing capacity allow it to handle large trailers.

Cons
Some of the cabin materials look and feel cheap for a vehicle in this price range
Doesn't offer some of the advanced safety features available on competitors.

The 2017 Lincoln Navigator has exceptional interior room, lots of bling, and unexpectedly good handling.Crossovers come, crossovers go, but full-size SUVs like the Lincoln Navigator have spent more time in vogue than Elle MacPherson. When gas prices are low, they're on the A-list; when fuel costs as much as an airplane ticket, they're still on the A-list, and they're not shy about it.

Pros
Vast cabin—or vaster, if you need
Tops in ride and handling
New infotainment features
Gas mileage is on the rise
Twin-turbo V-6 is a blast

Cons
Still a big 'ute in a downsized era
Still a 6-speed automatic
Adaptive dampers bundled as expensive options

The 2017 Lincoln Navigator ranks 7 out of 8 Luxury Large SUVs. If you're looking to buy a large luxury SUV with three rows of seats, the 2017 Lincoln Navigator is your cheapest way to get there. It also leads the class in both towing capacity and cargo space. However, you can find swankier interiors in most rivals, and the Navigator has a sparse list of driver assistance features.

Pros
Brawny engine with above-average fuel economy
Excellent towing capacity
Outstanding cargo room
Adult-friendly third-row seats

Cons
Few driver assistance features available
Interior feels outdated and low-rent to some
