2001 Ford Explorer Sport Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 24 reviews
The 2001 Ford Explorer Sport was the trim that became an SUV. For some reason, Ford made the decision to spin off its two-door Explorers into the "Explorer Sport" instead of including them in its 2001 upgrade of the Explorer.
Based on the desperately-seeking-an-update mid-90s Explorer platform, the 2001 Explorer Sport was kind of a tough sell. There wasn't anything particularly 'sporty' about it, either; if you got the optional four-wheel-drive, you could take the thing off-road, but that was about it. As midsize SUVs went, the Explorer Sport was nothing too special.
Still, some drivers loved it for its smaller wheelbase, tight turn ratio, and easy handling. Under the hood, the '01 Ford Explorer Sport packed a 4.0 liter, single overhead cam V6 with 205 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque. Gas mileage wasn't too bad by SUV standards, with 15-16 mpg city, 19 mpg highway.
