Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Few large SUVs are as spacious, comfortable, and capable as the Expedition, but its price of entry has us expecting more luxury than it delivers.

Pros
Spacious cabin,
turbo V-6 makes plenty of power,
stout towing capacity.

Cons
Plasticky interior trimmings,
feels exactly as large as it is from behind the wheel,
expensive upper trims.

Pros
Cavernous interior with plenty of passenger and cargo space
Quick acceleration from strong V6 engine
Comfortable front seats
Tows more than similarly sized crossover SUVs

Cons
Soft brake pedal feel diminishes driver confidence
Large size and slow steering make it cumbersome to drive
Not as quiet on the highway as other SUVs
Maximum power output depends on premium unleaded

handsome exterior styling,
plenty of cargo space.

Sleepy base four-cylinder engine,
ride gets rough on pockmarked roads,
unpolished interior design.
