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?
