The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Ford Expedition stands as one of the most accommodating and well-designed of the mega-SUVs, although its styling and features have fallen a bit behind the curve. There's very little that's fresh or contemporary about the 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe, but they're tough, roomy, straightforward trucks that perform surprisingly well.
