2015 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: Ford’s large SUV gets a significant update for 2015. The biggest news is that a V8 is no longer available—Expedition’s sole engine is now Ford’s EcoBoost twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6. Other new features include freshened exterior styling, an updated interior, and electric power steering. Driver-selectable adjustable suspension, keyless access and starting, blind-spot alert system with rear cross-traffic alert, rearview camera, and the SYNC with MyFord Touch infotainment system are among the available features. 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. 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.
