1995 Ford Explorer

Big changes were afoot for the 1995 Ford Explorer.  The exterior was restyled, with a slightly more aerodynamic look; a suspension update gave the '95 Explorer an independent front suspension that yielded a more car-like ride; and the interior was made more luxurious across the trim range.

Trim choices still included the Sport (now in two-door bodystyle only), the two-door and four-door XL and XLT, and the Eddie Bauer (now available only as a four-door model).  The four-door Limited edition now offered a choice between four-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive models.  A two-door, four-wheel drive trim was called the Expedition; this trim would only be offered for the '95 Ford Explorer.

Despite the many changes to the line, the engine remained the same for 1995: its 4.0 liter V-6 delivered 160 horsepower, and yielded 15-18 mpg city/20-22 mpg highway.  If you're looking for a used Explorer, you might do well to hold out for a model from 1996, when the engine received a comparable upgrade.  Still, drivers seem happy with their 1995 Explorers.
