2005 Ford Explorer Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 15 reviews
The 2005 Ford Explorer model year saw a few changes to the line. All-wheel drive was dropped as an option, and the Advance Trac antiskid system was made standard for all trims and models. The Advance Trac system was touted for its Roll Stability Control, which was designed to automatically detect tipping and stabilize the SUV against possible rollover.
Trim choices for the '05 Explorer included the XLS, XLT, Eddie Bauer, and Limited editions. Always a favorite in the sport-utility vehicle market, the midsize Explorer proved more popular than some of its more bloated competition as gas prices went higher. "Midsize" it may be called, but the '05 Ford Explorer provided a roomy cocoon of comfort for drivers and passengers alike, with a whopping 88.1 cubic feet of cargo capacity.
Engine choices for the 2005 Explorer were between two 4.0 liter V-6 models (a basic V-6 delivering 160 horsepower, and a single overhead cam V6 clocked at 205 horsepower) and a 4.6 liter Triton V-8 putting out 239 horsepower.
Even the most basic XLS version of the 2005 Explorer offers plenty of comfort, but buyers looking to be pampered can find lots of lavish options, especially in the Eddie Bauer and Limited editions. Heated leather seats, heated mirrors, passenger bucket seats, DVD entertainment system: you could practically live in this thing!
