The Ford Explorer has been in the market since the 1990s and has been regarded as a popular SUV as it caters to every driver’s needs and is packed with performance and durability. The 2017 Ford Explorer has slight changes with an option for a new Sport Appearance Package and an updated infotainment system.
Some top reasons to buy the latest Ford Explorer are:
- Space: The 2017 Ford Explorer has brought in a dose of leg room for the cramped space that used to be available in the previous models. This serves as a major addition for those who seat more than 5 people in their SUV. The second row has a sliding feature thereby enabling the car user to adjust the gap between the seat rows based on the need for space. There is also an additional cargo space that is available on the Explorer.
- Engine: The Ford Explorer is equipped with a turbocharged V4 engine that is not only efficient and strong but also generates a horsepower of about 280 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque which allows smooth movement for the SUV that weighs around 4,500 pounds. The Ford Explorer has an efficient fuel economy wherein a driver can expect more than 19 mpg in the city and around 27 mpg while cruising on the highway.
- Sport model: If you are a driver looking for some sports action, then the 2017 Explorer Sport trim offers a 3.5-liter eco-boost engine that generates a hp of around 365 and torque of about 350. The average acceleration from 0-60 is around 5.9 second, which pushes the Ford Explorer into the elite group of SUVs. The model also boasts of a sport-tuned suspension that facilitates ease of handling.
- Off-roading: A driver looking for some off-roading adventure can opt for the all-wheel drive option. The SUV is backed with a Terrain Management System that not only optimizes the generated traction but also aids with adapting to different terrains. Other notable aspects include the Hill Descent Control for deep inclines and a ground clearance of 7.8 inches.
