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?

Almost certainly better on road
Updated, roomier interior
Still brims with character

Is it too derivative?

Only one off-road mode
Bound to be wildly expensive
