The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Ford Expedition isn't totally new, but the much-needed refresh gives it heady twin-turbo power and a slick-riding adaptive suspension. Plain but purposeful, the 2014 Chevy Suburban puts full-size SUV tradition to the foreground.
