As the entry-level Explorer available for 2008, the XLT comes with a limited list of standard features, but still includes AdvanceTrac traction control with Roll Stability Control (RSC), Ford's Safety Canopy system with side airbags, an MP3 input jack for the AM/FM/CD sound system, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

Other standard features include ffront low-back cloth bucket seats, power windows and door locks, a keyless entry system, Ice Blue dash lighting, and air conditioning.

The Explorer XLT also includes a new capless fuel filling system (available late in the model year), which opens and closes automatically when drivers insert or extract a fuel pump nozzle. The new capless system provides a tighter seal than a typical gas cap, according to Ford.

Power for the 2008 Explorer XLT comes in the form of a 210-horsepower, 4.0-liter, single-overhead-cam V6 engine, which links to a five-speed overdrive automatic transmission. A maintenance-free battery, Class II towing hitch, and 16-inch aluminum wheels are also included in the XLT V6 package.

The 2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer V8 4WD combines the distinctive Eddie Bauer styling package with the performance provided by a 292-horsepower V8 engine and the capable handling that results from Ford's ControlTrac 4X4 System. With the ControlTrac system, drivers can turn a rotary knob to select high or low four-wheel-drive mode, 4X4 Auto (which transfers power to the appropriate wheels), or two-wheel-drive mode.

Special exterior features for the Eddie Bauer V8 4WD include Pueblo Gold front and rear bumpers, a three-bar chrome grille, and Pueblo Gold trim and wheel-lip moldings, as well as power exterior mirrors.

Inside, the Eddie Bauer package adds special front-row leather-trimmed, low-backed sport bucket seats, which are equipped with power lumbar and recline. The driver's seat adds 10-way power adjustment.

The Eddie Bauer V8 4WD also comes equipped with a leather-trimmed steering wheel, a message center, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and an MP3 input jack for the AM/FM/CD sound system. An AdvanceTrac traction control with Roll Stability Control (RSC), a Safety Canopy system with side airbags, and a tire pressure monitoring system are also part of the package.

Like all 2008 Explorer models, the Eddie Bauer V8 4WD comes outfitted with a new capless fuel filling system (available late in the model year), which opens and closes automatically when drivers insert or extract a fuel pump nozzle. The new capless system provides a tighter seal than a typical gas cap, according to Ford.
