Sporty — The room for my whole family in a reliable car. You will always get compliments on the ride and the look of the car. The convenience of the remote start is wonderful on hot and cold days! We love this car!

Pros

Nice styling, inside and out. Nice improvement from the 'old' Fords.

Cons

These power trains (transmissions) seem to be plagued with problems. Not smooth, and sometimes unpredictable shifting, etc.

Good Vehicle. — Could use a little more power. The 3.5L V6 is just not quite enough. However, I'm sure my mileage is much better than if it had a V8, so I'm not really complaining all that much. Otherwise, a very nice vehicle with lots of USEFUL features and amenities.

Ford Explor — Great car overall, recommend. The MPG could be a little better, but it doesn't lack at all in the power category, we topped it out at 120 MPH which is astonishing for a car of this size, great buy for us.

Super Fun, Sporty Suv With The Looks To Boot! — So far this is my most favorite SUV I have ever owned. I have owned an explorer before but it was nothing compared to this one! With this one, I am just looking for a reason to get behind the wheel and go! Get tons of compliements on the looks! And the interior is very up to date with technology! Love the myFord Touch and SyncMyRide!!!!
