AAA and Parents magazine is out with a list of the 15 best cars for families.
Among the winners in the category of the much-maligned SUV, is the Ford Expedition:
"Third row comfortably fits actual grownups, not just kids. Cavernous center console, 11 cupholders, spacious interior. To minimize damage to other vehicles, bumpers are the same height as those on normal cars. Four-wheel drive version has true off-road moxie."
