Undergoing a massive visual and mechanical makeover, the Ford Explorer departs the truck-based construction for a more modern crossover vehicle frame. Sold in a base, XLT and Limited, the Ford Explorer varies in premium ranges. Superiorly powered by the 3.5 liter V-6 forcing out 290 horsepower and 255 pounds-feet of torque, the Explorer is either front-wheel drive or could be equipped with optional four-wheel drive. A budget-minded EcoBoost in-line four engine, Explorer is also available as front-wheel drive only. Both engines are mated with 6-speed automatic transmissions. Fuel economy for 3.5 liter V-6 is 17 city/25 highway while the four-cylinder engine will be approximately a 1 mile per gallon improvement. Standard interior convenience on the base Explorer includes power windows, power locks and four 12-volt power outlets seeking to indulge the cabin occupants. Optional 7-seat capacity, dual-panel moonroof and available Ford SYNC can be equipped. This premium-grade family hauler standard safety features includes Ford's MyKey, front row and side-impact airbags and AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control.
