The 2014 Ford Explorer has aged with the years, now looking like a remnant of past years of SUV glory. That's largely because it hasn't kept up with the F-150 truck on which it's based–where the F-150 has gone through several iterations and improvements over the several years, the Expedition has seen little change. It's rounder now than the F-150, which has much edgier, crisper lines.
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.
