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. The rugged, honest Chevy Tahoe doesn't exactly lack for luxury, but it's a more pragmatic choice for those who don't really need the luxury layers applied to Yukons, Escalades, or GLs.
