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?

Refined ride quality makes it comfortable in any kind of driving situation
Excellent performance from the optional V6 engine
Simple cabin layout means everything is usable at a glance
Modern onboard technology keeps you connected

Cons
Even the priciest trim levels don't feel very luxurious
Third-row seats are now far less accommodating than in previous Acadia

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
Denali offers real luxury
Improved handling
Not as thirsty
Still has room for seven
Loads of available active safety features

Cons
New 4-cylinder struggles

Denali is luxury, but is GMC?
All Terrain isn't as much of an off-roader as the name suggests
