I'm looking to buy a new Ford Explorer or a 4Runner, any idea which one can hold up to really rough roads the best?

Asked by Nov 24, 2015 at 07:33 AM about the 2016 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am getting rid of an 08 Outback which has been a nightmare for repair costs.  
Before that car I had an 03 Explorer and it was great.

Don't know about 4 runners, but older explorers came with torsion bar front suspension which held up really well. New explorers, I believe, have front wheel drive. In my 2003, they switched away from torsion bar suspension. I also live in an area where roads are rough, my next purchase was a pickup.

The new Explorers come with 4 wheel drive as an option. Toyota is always are good choice. The Ford Edge might be something you would like.
