2023 Ford Expedition Wins KBB Best Buy Award

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.

    The only problem with my ’19 is that the cup holder broke (I guess I drink too much). Ford replaced it per the warranty. Other than that, I’ve had 45,000 no-problem miles. Runs like a champ, and it is a outstanding go-anywhere family wagon.

    Have a 2008, bought in ’14 with 54k on it.
    Now she’s up to 224k. Never been let down or stranded in the 8 years I’ve owned her and she still runs like new. Got rear-ended three weeks ago, barely felt it. The Mitsubishi that was involved was totaled. I cried a little when I saw the damage and at the thought of parting with the old girl. Had the hubby patch her up and get me back on the road the same day. I really hope insurance will pay for the repairs. Either way, I think i’ll keep driving her for a while yet.
