In the world of midsize 3-row crossover SUVs, the 2015 Ford Explorer remains a tough act to follow. While no longer the rugged off-roader of its ancestry, the Ford Explorer remains an important player in the market, particularly against other crossover SUVs like the Chevrolet Traverse, Nissan Pathfinder, Dodge Durango, Toyota Highlander, and Honda Pilot. Like those vehicles, the Explorer puts greater emphasis on on-road refinement with features like a rearview camera, a quiet and comfortable ride, and upscale options like a rear-seat entertainment system and MyFord Touch. While no longer a "real" off-roader, the Explorer's Terrain Response System ensures it can still tackle moderate off-road trails, proving this car-based crossover still has a little of its truck-based SUV DNA.
