The 2011 Ford Expedition has conservative—and somewhat dated—styling, but at least from the outside that doesn't limit its appeal.

my test car's was finished in black, like the rest of the car, making the Expedition look pretty intimidating (as if its hulking size weren't enough)

Most people would agree that the Expedition is mammoth, trucklike, and rather conservative, but that doesn't seem to limit the appeal of its design. The 2011 Ford Expedition dates back to 2007, though the big SUV shows no sign of aging with its target group—those who value hauling and towing ability, and truck toughness, over style. While the Expedition is quite different from the F-150 pickup on which it's based, the similarities from the front are undeniable—although with respect to design details, the more rounded sheetmetal of the Expedition looks less up-to-date than that of the F-Series.

The interior, on the other hand, is beginning to look dated, whether compared to other full-size SUVs or to modern crossover designs. The design and location of controls is quite simple. There are quite a few subpanels and trim pieces meeting at squarish and straight edges, punctuated with round vents, and a shelf running full length across the dash—and an odd mix of matte-metallic, dull plastic, and faux-wood trim.

Conclusion

The 2011 Ford Expedition has conservative—and somewhat dated—styling, but at least from the outside that doesn't limit its appeal.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
