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 2018 Porsche Macan is unchanged.We like the balance of price and performance you get in the Macan S. It has more capability than you'll likely ever need, yet it is still tame enough for daily driving. As for options, the Premium Package Plus is a good place to start since it adds a nice grouping of desirable equipment without getting too fancy with the customization possibilities.

PROS
Quick acceleration regardless of engine choice
Most athletic and engaging to drive SUV in its segment
Surprisingly comfortable and composed ride
Long list of options means you can customize every last detail

CONS
Must pay for numerous stand-alone options to get full-featured cabin
Less rear-seat and cargo space than segment competitors

The 2018 Porsche Macan ranked #4 in Luxury Compact SUVs. Currently the Porsche Macan has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Outstanding acceleration
Nimble handling and quiet ride
Posh interior
User-friendly infotainment system

Cons
Subpar fuel economy
Undersized cargo hold
More expensive than most rivals

By:

The 2018 Porsche Macan is the performance pick among compact crossovers because of course it is. Purists may scoff, but we don’t much care.

Pros
Breathtaking speed from a small crossover
Plenty of optional goodies
GTS model hits a performance sweet spot
Fit and finish is perfectly Porsche

Cons
Gets expensive in a hurry
Oddly shaped cargo area
Did we mention it can crest six figures?
No manual transmission. Don’t even ask.
Back seats aren’t really all that spacious
