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 2014 Nissan Armada has grown old in a segment that has improved its technology, safety, features and fuel economy.
