Toward the finish line they fly - dozens of crossovers, all trying to claim victory. Exhaust spills onto the pavement; smoke slams beneath the tires; and a blare of horns comes echoing down the track. It’s a battle between every brand… but, as always, there can be only one true winner.
According to WBIR, the new Expedition has just been named the Best SUV in North America. Critics from Cars.com gathered the leading platforms (the Toyota Sequoia, the Nissan Armada, the Chevrolet Tahoe, and Ford’s popular Platinum edition) and pitted them against the elements - racing more than 200 miles across a wide array of terrains and conditions. Every AWD was pushed to the limit; and, when the smoke cleared, only one vehicle proved itself worthy of off-road adventures.
The 2018 Expedition secured a staggering 820 points out of 1000 (its nearest competitor, the Armada, earned a mere 700). The Cars.com team assessed 17 unique categories - including speed, towing capacity, fuel consumption, and torque - and Ford swept them all. Anchored by a turbocharged V6 this platform delivered:
Speed: 0 to 60 in 5.9 seconds.
Towing: 6,000 pounds of conventional trailering.
Economy: Up to 17 MPGs in the city and 24 MPGs on the highway.
Torque: 480 lb.-ft.
The eight-passenger Expedition easily dominated the Cars.com challenge - with critics praising its 10-speed automatic transmission (which eliminates clutch strain) and its exceptional cargo space (104.6 cu.-ft). This crossover blazed past the competition and delivered superior performance with every mile.
