Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Ford Expedition is finally the full-size family hauler from Ford we've been waiting for.A long-awaited redo for the spacious family hauler finally arrives this year, and the 2018 Ford Expedition gets more than a "mane and tail" makeover. The new SUV will be available in XLT, Limited, and Platinum trims in rear- or four-wheel-drive configurations. A long wheelbase Expedition will be offered and is called Expedition MAX, which is a new name for the States. Pricing hasn't yet been announced.

Pros
Boxy, upright stance
Advanced safety tech
Strong V-6 and 10-speed powertrain
Helpful terrain management system

Cons
We thought we were past the rotary shift knob
Uncertain about fuel economy
Expedition MAX?

By:

The 2018 Ford Expedition ranked #1 in Large SUVs. Currently the Ford Expedition has a score of 9.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 8 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful engine
Upscale cabin with plenty of features
Three rows of spacious seats
Lots of cargo space

Cons
More expensive than competitors

By: 
usnews.com

More powerful V6 engine and new 10-speed automatic transmission.The 2018 Expedition is fully redesigned.The first year of the fourth-generation Expedition.Updated interior with new features.

PROS
Turbo V6 engine, now with more power, pulls strong even when laden
Easy folding and sliding of rear seats increase interior flexibility
Adults will actually be comfortable in the third-row seat
Tows more than similarly sized crossover SUVs

CONS
Fuel economy still below what a typical three-row crossover achieves
Big, bulky and tricky to navigate and park in tight quarters

The 2018 BMW X2 has agile handling to match its sleek looks, and while it gives up some interior space for the low roofline, it still retains some crossover utility.

Pros
Sprightly acceleration
Agile handling
Stylish design
Efficient for a crossover
Good backseat space

Cons
Interior space is compromised
A front-drive BMW?
Pricing creeps up quickly
Most safety features are optional and pricey

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Boldly styled on the outside, the X2 shares its underpinnings with the already excellent X1. A 228-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four mates to an eight-speed automatic transmission with front- or all-wheel drive. The fun-to-drive X2 went from 0–60 in 6.4 seconds in our testing. Connectivity options include a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and Apple CarPlay. Available safety tech includes lane-departure warning, automatic high-beams, forward-collision warning, and low-speed automated emergency braking.

Pros
Attractive inside and out,
nails the fun-to-drive quotient.

Cons
Stiff ride,
road and suspension noise,
high as-tested price.

By: 
caranddriver.com

One of the nicest-looking BMWs of late also happens to be one of the most affordable, but despite its gorgeous design, it's far from perfect.

Pros
Exterior design
Driving dynamics
Interior fit and finish
Spacious for its size
Very competent powertrain
Great ride comfort (Adaptive Suspension), infotainment system

Cons
Misses out on full autonomous emergency braking
Apple CarPlay optional and an ongoing cost
Interior carry-over from X1 showing its age
