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)

the front end looks tough with a prominent three-bar grille and a "humped" powerdome hood

Compared to most other full-size, truck-based SUVs, the 2013 Expedition doesn't at all look fresh. And part of the reason is that it hasn't kept pace with the F-150 pickups on which it's based. Instead, Ford has left the Expedition to carry over unchanged for many years now as the F-150 has seen more incremental tweaks and improvements. The result is that while the latest F-Series trucks have a crisper, edgier look, the Expedition has stayed more rounded in its details—which haven't been significantly changed since its last 2007 redesign.

Inside, it's a bit worse; because Ford has come so far in such a short time with respect to interior design, the Expedition's cabin really is the relic of another era. 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. Of note is the now-dated mix of faux-wood, dull plastics, and matte-metallic surfaces that are used as trim.

 

Conclusion

The 2013 Ford Expedition looks pretty much the same as it did years ago, but serious truck shoppers aren't going to mind.

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.
