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.

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder offers good space for seven in a composed, quiet environment and it manages a some decent capability for off-road duty and towing.
The Nissan Pathfinder mid-size people mover gets a modest refresh for 2017 after its 2014 redesign.
Changes to this seven-passenger crossover SUV include new front and rear fascias that create a more truck-like look, engine improvements, a new infotainment system, and new active safety features.

Pros
Clever folding second row
Spacious interior
Composed, quiet ride
Calm cabin
Controlled handling

Cons
Far from a sports car
Drab interior materials
Occasional lag in power delivery

The Nissan Pathfinder receives substantial updates for 2017. These include a more powerful engine, greater towing capacity, a slight front and rear redesign, a larger standard touchscreen, additional feature content, and revised steering and suspension for a sharper driving experience.

Pros
V6 engine provides strong acceleration and respectable fuel economy
User-friendly touchscreen interface comes standard on every trim
Easily accessed third-row seat
Robust towing capacity.

Cons
Below-average cargo capacity and small item storage
Less third-row space than some rivals
Platinum trim level's ride quality might be too firm for some drivers
Automatic emergency braking safety feature available on top trim only.

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder ranks 16 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. Despite a significant refresh for the 2017 model year, the Nissan Pathfinder ranks near the bottom of the midsize SUV class. While it can adequately do everything it was designed to do, it fails to impress in most areas.

Pros
Strong V6 engine
Intuitive infotainment system
Good overall cargo space

Cons
Rough ride quality
Lackluster interior design
Dull driving dynamics
Unimpressive passenger space
