2011 Ford Explorer

A top-to-bottom rethink of the Explorer formula results in a thoroughly contemporary and far more desirable take on the SUV/crossover concept, creating a package that should help win over new buyers as well as bring former owners back into the Blue Oval fold.

About Ford Explorer

Ford’s 2017 Explorer SUV continues its sales success, with sleek styling, a bevy of trim and package options, and a choice of potent powertrains. The 7-passenger Ford Explorer has plenty of competition, but its Land Rover-like styling and incredibly plush interior place it in line with upscale competitors like the Mazda CX-9 and Hyundai Santa Fe. From the Platinum trim’s twin-turbocharged V6 to the Sport’s beefy wheel and tire package, the 2017 Ford Explorer is one crossover SUV with multiple personalities. Even the most inexpensive base model offers a high-tech 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, while the available Terrain Management System allows the Explorer to live up to its name both on- and off-road.

"I bought the Ford Limited for my wife. We have had many SUV's including 2 Explorers over the years. She loves this car & it was designed for the ladies. I drive a Chevy Avalanche & except for the left frt leg room I enjoy the car as much. They did this to make more cabin room. Haven't tested it in snow yet, but I imagine it'll be fine because of the weight & lager 20" tires. It gets great gas mileage on a trip."

"Finally got past the sticker shock (and I bought the base model). Hadn't bought a new vehicle in several years (still don't understand why new cars cost more than my first house). I do enjoy the amenities Ford has put on the new vehicles. The engine power is so much more than adequate. The ride is so quiet, I can actually whisper to my spouse. The ride is incredibly smooth, thanks in part to the independent 4-wheel suspension. The interior is well laid-out and easy to familiarize with. I like the third-row seating, having that option to carry more people when necessary. The rear heat/AC controls are a nice touch, as is the overhead air ducting. I think it's very attractive and stylish. Haven't had it long but so far I can't find fault with it."

Cons: "Poor driver's side leg room."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 4

"...you don;t mind not being able to stretch-out your left leg. The left front wheel-well protrudes too far into the cabin. So there's no room to stretch your left foot out between the brake peddle and the wheel-well! Therefore your left leg remains bunched-up jackrabbit style stuck on the wheel-well. Seems like it would get old during a lot of in-town or long distance driving. What was Ford thinking? Not sure how cops put up with it all day long. PS: The new smaller Ford Escape has better and more functional leg room! Go figure!"
