2019 Ford Expedition

Pros: Excellent road manners for such a large vehicle, satisfying acceleration, cavernous cabin space for passengers and cargo, 9200-lb towing capacity

Cons: Fuel economy, maneuverability in tight quarters

CG Says: The 2019 Ford Expedition has only minor changes after last year’s redesign. The dual-zone automatic climate control has been replaced by a tri-zone system. There is also a new Special Edition Package that includes 360-degree camera, active park assist, and a heavy-duty tow package. Ford’s full-size SUV was redesigned from the ground up for 2018, gaining an aluminum body structure on a high-strength-steel frame, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and a host of new features. Regular- and “MAX” extended-length models are available. The lone engine is a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that develops 375 horsepower—or 400 hp on the line-topping Platinum model. All models have a 10-speed transmission. The second-row seats tilt and slide forward for easier access to the third row. Available features include a dual-headrest rear-seat entertainment system, panoramic sunroof, hands-free foot-activated liftgate, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability, active park assist, wireless device charging, Wi-Fi hotspot, and remote start. Like other full-size SUVs, the Ford Expedition isn’t cheap to buy or cheap operate. However, its excellent redesign for 2018 brought a higher level of all-around refinement and welcome new features, while Expedition’s already-impressive cabin space was improved. If you need the capabilities of a true three-row, body-on-frame SUV, the Ford Expedition should be on your test-drive list.
