The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
It hasn't been brought up to date like the company's pickup trucks, but the Ford Expedition has one of the best cabins and designs among the biggest SUVs. The 2014 Nissan Armada has grown old in a segment that has improved its technology, safety, features and fuel economy.
