The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Ford Expedition is a big, capable SUV with a truly useful and convenient third row. Competitors to the 2009 Nissan Armada offer roomier interiors and better options, but the Armada should be commended for its handsome looks and powerful V-8 engine.
