TCC’s Bottom Line
Truck toughness and a roomy three-row interior make the 2010 Ford Expedition a very well-rounded full-size SUV. The 2009 GMC Yukon Denali still ranks as one of the most stylish and comfortable ways to do serious cross-country hauling. 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.
