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

By: 
edmunds.com

Our starry-eyed devotion to the XC90 isn’t complete, though. Its forced-induction powertrains are a little rougher than the silky V-6s we’re accustomed to in this segment, and harsh impacts occasionally jostle the cabin despite the suspension’s best efforts. Still, it’s a dynamically sound, luxurious, and slightly outré approach to family-size luxury, and the package is nearly perfect.

Pros
Astonishingly beautiful,
solid driving dynamics,
safety by Volvo.

Cons
Can approach starter-home prices,
minor powertrain flaws,
base trim lacks the lineup’s best features.

The 2018 Volvo XC90 is the crossover success that brought new buyers into the brand. Its mix of good looks and excellent tech make it a major player now.

Pros
Impressive standard safety features
Beautiful interior
Very good infotainment system
Wide range of trim choices
Sharp exterior

Cons
We’re not sold on six-figure top models
Base powertrain lacks passing power
Second and third row seats could use more padding
One isn’t in our driveway now

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2018, the Volvo XC90 gets some additional equipment as standard such as adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (previously optional) are now standard as well.

PROS
Elegant styling inside and out
Precise handling that inspires confidence
Spacious second- and third-row seating for a midsize SUV
Many standard safety technology features

CONS
Some of the standard touchscreen controls can be hard to use
Comes up short on performance and real-world fuel economy
Overly busy ride quality for a vehicle in its class
