KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz


The 2018 Ford Expedition is about as all-new as a new vehicle can get. Sharing virtually nothing with its predecessor, the new Expedition advances the state of the art in full-size SUVs in the same way its cousin, the Ford F-150, did for pickup trucks: extensive use of aluminum. The benefits are tangible. The new Expedition offers excellent towing and hauling capabilities with its 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 engine, yet manages to return fuel economy more commonly associated with smaller, car-based midsize SUVs. It does all this while still offering what we've come to expect from the full-size Expedition: tons of interior space, great cargo room, and the kind of smooth ride you can only get from an independent rear suspension...and can't get in a solid-axle Chevrolet Tahoe or GMC Yukon.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're a Ford die-hard and have been wishing the F-150's aluminum goodness were available in a closed body, your prayers have been answered. If you're brand agnostic and just want the best full-size SUV you can get, look no further.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The Chevrolet and GMC folks probably haven't even read this far, as brand loyalty will keep them away. Otherwise, it's possible you just don't need this much SUV. In that case, a smaller midsize SUV like the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, or VW Atlas may serve you better...and save you money.

What's New for 2018

From where the tires meet the road to the roof rack, everything on the 2018 Ford Expedition is new this year. Still available in two lengths, note that the new long-wheelbase version is now called the Expedition Max.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Driving the 2018 Ford Expedition reminds us in some ways -- all of them good -- of how we felt when we first drove the aluminum-bodied Ford F-150. The lighter material makes the entire vehicle feel less bulky and massive, quite a feat considering that this is, without doubt, still a massive and bulky vehicle. Yet with the twin-turbo V6 and 10-speed automatic, the Expedition feels almost sprightly, with plenty of power in reserve for passing at highway speeds. The steering and suspension likewise feel sharper than you might expect in a vehicle this big. It's by no means a sporty drive, but there's more of a spring in its step than you may imagine. For parking-lot maneuvering, we highly recommend the around-view camera, since sightlines aren't exactly a strong suit of big vehicles like this, and even though the rearview camera is standard, you'll want all the help you can get.

Favorite Features

INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION
Some things just don't change, and thankfully, Ford didn't change the Expedition's independent rear suspension. Not only does it smooth out bumps -- especially compared to the Chevy Tahoe -- the fancy suspension helps increase cargo and rear-seat area, giving the Expedition a distinct advantage there, too.

ALUMINUM CONSTRUCTION
Similar to the Ford F-150 pickup, the new Expedition uses aluminum extensively in its construction, helping to shave about 300 pounds, compared to its predecessor. That helps drivability and fuel economy, and provides a host of other benefits.
