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

By:

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 Tesla Model X ranked #6 in Luxury Hybrid and Electric SUVs. Currently the Tesla Model X has a score of 7.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 20 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Supercar-like acceleration
Poised handling
Excellent amount of cargo space
Futuristic, intuitive features

Cons
Cramped third row
Stiff ride quality
Concerning fit and finish issues

By: 
usnews.com

The 2019 Tesla Model X is no longer the only all-electric SUV you can buy this year. It’s swift, pleasant to travel in, and relatively practical, save for its somewhat silly doors.

Pros
Doors with more flair than some supercars
Performance and handling
Smooth, quiet ride
Quick, clear 17-inch touchscreen

Cons
Looks like a bulbous Model S
Rear doors are a gimmick
Disappointing interior space
Prices go well past $140,000

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2019 Tesla Model X SUV comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 1-speed direct drive.Revised trim-level lineup with greater range capability
New Full Self-Driving Capability feature adds extra skills to Autopilot

PROS
Instant and powerful acceleration
Electric range is impressive
Three-row seating is available
No engine noise makes for a quiet cabin

CONS
Finicky upward-swinging rear doors impede functionality
More squeaks and rattles than other high-end luxury SUVs
Rough, choppy ride with larger wheels
Vast windshield lets far too much sun and heat into the cabin

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2019 Tesla Model X might be the greenest—and one of the fastest—way to tote up to seven people over hill and dale. As the crossover cousin to the brand's iconic Model S sedan, the X is actually practical, with all-wheel drive, a high-tech cabin with room for up to seven, and striking but fussy Falcon Wing doors.
