  • Excellent, Affordable, Sport Trim SUV w. 7 Seats!

    Purchased this as my first SUV for the family; originally having come from a Honda Accord as a child, a Saab 900 SE Turbo as a young adult, and a 2013 Mustang GT that has been supercharged in recent years (now the garage queen next to this truck). Never have I had this level of space, comfort, and versatility in my vehicles listed above. The vehicle is quiet across all corridors, offers an excellent surround sound system, XM Satellite Radio, WiFI connectivity for regular updates, and more. I opted for the twin moon roof option, as well as the captains chairs to give it that next level of functional comfort, and have not regretted it for a second. The engine, while small, runs strong with the twin turbos - regularly edging out lesser vehicles in head to head match ups and overall the vehicle sits sleek among the SUV pack with exterior black trim, and some upgraded wheels to match. I love this truck - while my boosted Mustang gives me the feel of a sports car, this truck does not necessarily take away from that feeling, all while providing every creature comfort imaginable.
  • I love this SUV!

    I've owned many Ford vehicles over the years, and this latest one (2018 Explorer XLT) exceeds my expectations, as have all my previous Fords! Power, economy, good looks, handling, sport-mode on transmission, and loads of hauling space inside... what more could a person ask for?
  • Love this vehicle.

    Will probably buy another Explorer. Just had my first repair at 100,300 miles--left headlight burned out. Original tires lasted until 75,000 miles.
