2017 Ford Expedition

Pros: Cavernous passenger and cargo room, especially in extended-wheelbase version; spacious and comfortable 3rd-row seat folds flat to the floor; impressive 9200-lb towing capacity; lots of standard equipment

Cons: Projected fuel economy; tight-quarters maneuverability; tall step-in height means entry and exit can be tricky for smaller occupants

CG Says: The 2017 Ford Expedition sees few changes in advance of a redesign expected next year. Driver-selectable adjustable suspension and polished 22-inch alloy wheels are newly standard on Platinum models. A Limited Appearance Package is now available on Limiteds. As before, two versions of the Expedition are available: the standard 119-inch-wheelbase version, and an extended-length variant with a 131-inch wheelbase. Keyless access and starting, blind-spot alert system with rear cross-traffic alert, rearview camera, and power-folding 3rd-row seat are among the available features. Though the demand for large, truck-based SUVs gets seemingly smaller by the day, there is still a market here for folks who genuinely need the space and capability these vehicles provide. Expedition excels for all the right reasons: good power, a spacious cabin, and superior cargo flexibility.
