Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Two new performance models join the 2018 GLC-Class Coupe lineup: the AMG GLC 63 and AMG GLC 63 S. Mercedes has also renamed most of the GLC's options packages to better convey the features added. Heated wipers are now standard, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can now be added with the Smartphone Integration package.

PROS
Elegant and premium interior design
Excellent balance between agile handling and a comfortable ride
Abundant driver safety aids work great
Four- and six-cylinder engines are fuel-efficient for the class

CONS
Hard to brake smoothly
Rear headroom isn't great, especially in the middle
Infotainment controls aren't always easy to use
Less useful cargo area than in regular GLC

Mercedes-AMG peppers performance and spicy styling into its coupe/crossover casserole. The powertrain platter includes a 362-hp twin-turbo V-6 or twin-turbo V-8s pumping out 469 or 503 ponies. All engines pair with a nine-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.

Pros
Porsche 911 quick,
grippy handling,
strong brakes,
V-8 rumble.

Cons
Stiff ride,
noisy tires,
feels big and heavy from behind the wheel.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class captivates crossover types with its lush cabin and its plush ride; there’s AMG power on tap if you must.

Pros
Cabinet-grade interior (agency or furniture)
Choose your body
Choose your engine
Burmester audio thrills
Doesn’t cut short on technology

Cons
Expensive safety options
It’s not a Coupe, it’s just less useful
Numb steering (GLC 300)
Rivals have diesel, plug-ins

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?
