The Ford Expedition is a solid and all-around capable full-size—read that as "huge"—three-row SUV. It comes in two lengths, standard (humongous) and even more-humongous Max, and the lineup includes the Timberline model, which is well equipped for off-road excursions. Unlike its equally enormous rivals from GM and Stellantis—such as the Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon, and Jeep Wagoneer—it does not offer a naturally aspirated V-8 engine option. Instead, the Expedition is powered by Ford's well-known twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, which develops up to 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque in the most powerful model.
A quick-witted 10-speed automatic handles shifting duties for all 2023 Expeditions, and customers can choose between rear- or four-wheel-drive setups. Despite foregoing a V-8, the Expedition still isn't exactly fuel efficient, but it is quick: It can haul its considerable bulk up to 60 mph in under 5.0 seconds when equipped with the Stealth Performance package. On top of that, it has a towing capacity of 9300 pounds and can carry over 1750 pounds of onboard payload. Ford has also outfitted the Expedition with all of the latest safety and connectivity devices, making it a reasonable, well-rounded option for buyers of XXL SUVs. That said, its interior's compromised materials and trucky driving character put it at a disadvantage compared to its Chevy, GMC, and Jeep rivals.
