Car and Driver

Benefiting from the styling revamp of 2007, the 2010 Ford Expedition remains top dog in Ford's SUV lineup, which it accomplishes with aplomb.

The 2010 Ford Expedition "is available in four trim levels," according to Edmunds, which lists them as "XLT, Eddie Bauer, Limited and new King Ranch." Aside from a few variations on the exterior, all trim levels of the 2010 Ford Expedition feature what Kelley Blue Book describes as "Ford's now-signature four-bar grille" that "sits front and center," along with a "raised 'powerdome' hood, new headlamps and larger wheel 'lips.'" Edmunds reports that the exterior differences, though minor, are noticeable and mostly include bigger wheels on more expensive trim levels and "gold body cladding and running boards" on the Eddie Bauer trim, which changes to a "monochromatic paint job" on the 2010 Ford Expedition in Limited trim.

While the exterior of the 2010 Ford Expedition lineup doesn't draw any significant criticisms in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, the same can’t be said about the interior. Edmunds asserts that "the interior controls and displays aren't always easy to read or use." ConsumerGuide adds that "most controls" on the Ford Expedition are "logically placed, though the switchgear lacks a precision feel," and the navigation system "absorbs most audio functions, awkwardly combining pushbutton and touch screen operation, and its screen washes out in even moderate sunlight." Furthermore, Motor Trend finds that "the instrument panel, with its mix of round and rectangular gauges and chrome, plastic, and wood trim, appears retro for the sake of being retro and at the expense of good function." It’s not all bad as Kelley Blue Book reviewers discover, stating that "driver and passengers will enjoy tone-on-tone leather," along with "a stylish center stack on the instrument panel and cup holders galore."

Conclusion

Styling of the 2010 Ford Expedition, though safe, remains a strong suit, but the SUV is still let down by its subpar interior.

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.
