Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Ford Explorer ranked #9 in Midsize SUVs. Currently the Ford Explorer has a score of 8.3 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 68 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Large cargo area behind third-row seat
Meaty twin-turbo V6 available
High predicted reliability rating

Cons
Seats aren't as comfy or roomy as some
Thirsty engines
Feels massive to drive

By: 
usnews.com

The Explorer receives only minor changes for 2018, with subtle styling tweaks at the front and rear, an integrated 4G LTE hotspot and revised feature availability.

PROS
Plenty of high-tech features that are easy to use
Optional turbocharged V6 engine delivers plentiful power
Cabin is quiet and comfortable on the highway
Cargo space is generous behind the third row

CONS
Legroom in the third row is subpar
Depending on trim level, feels big and ponderous from behind the wheel

The 2018 Ford Explorer has pulled off a graceful transition from clumsy off-roader to genteel family wagon.

Pros
A utility player, in the classic sense
Very good handling
Better fuel economy ratings
Improved infotainment, now with 4G LTE
Lovely Sport tuning

Cons
The EPA’s optimistic with those turbo ratings
Platinum content, platinum prices
Second-row seat needs padding, less tilt
Third-row seat needs more of everything

The 2019 Cadillac XT5 ranked #20 in Luxury Midsize SUVs. Currently the Cadillac XT5 has a score of 7.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 31 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Low base price
Classic, elegant cabin
Smooth ride

Cons
Uninspired handling

By: 
usnews.com

The XT5's wireless smartphone charging pad gets an upgrade for 2019 and now offers 15 watts of juice (versus last year's 5 watts) to speed charging times. Other changes are limited to four new colors—Shadow Metallic, Red Horizon Tintcoat, Dark Mocha Metallic, and Manhattan Noir Metallic—and a new Kona Brown leather interior with Sapele wood trim.

Pros
Quiet interior,
distinctive exterior styling,
spacious cargo bay.

Cons
Somewhat gruff V-6 powertrain,
muddled driving dynamics,
busy interior design.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2019 Cadillac XT5 is a solid, if forgettable, crossover. Consider the Caddy’s myriad rivals, too.

Pros
Comfortable ride
Strong V-6 power
Luxurious interior with right options
Low base price...

Cons
… that can climb quickly
Light on personality
Front-wheel drive model a bore
Infotainment can frustrate
