The 2023 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy award winners have been revealed, and several FoMoCo vehicles are featured on the list. Unsurprisingly, the 2023 Ford Expedition was among the current crop of vehicles the publication determined represent the best value for the dollar in today’s new car market. Once again, it prevailed in the full-size SUV segment, and it marks the sixth consecutive year that it took top honors in that category.
If you are looking for an SUV with superior towing capacity, seating for up to eight, and off-road prowess, nothing fits the bill better than the Ford Expedition. This full-size SUV offers an impressive combination of capability, comfort, refinement, and tech,” said the publication.
Kelley Blue Book’s annual Best Buy awards are determined based on a year of vehicle evaluations, in addition to a subsequent round of testing. The publication uses various vehicle-related data – including pricing and its 5-year cost to own data – to arrive at its conclusions. It uses information about depreciation, insurance, maintenance, financing, fuel expenses, and consumer reviews and ratings too.
The 2023 Ford Expedition soldiers on with the litany of updates the company introduced for the 2022 model year. Those updates didn’t go unnoticed by Kelley Blue Book and competing publications either, as the former previously deemed the SUV the best for families, while Consumer Reports said it represents a better buy over the Chevrolet Tahoe. Additionally, the Expedition won Best CPO value by Vincentric and also ranked among the top 20 vehicles with the highest content of American parts for 2022. Since it is just coming off of a substantial update, there haven’t been any substantial changes to the lineup save for the Timberline trim, which lost an interior color but gained one-pedal driving. A full redesign is expected to arrive sometime in 2024.
