Ever since the first Ford Explorer hit the market it has been a top selling vehicle for Ford, the 2017; with sleek new styling, a choice of engines and plenty of options continues the trend. A Ford Explorer in Wheeling is not without competition, it has even been said that at first glance the top of the line Platinum trim could easily pass for a Lincoln.
If you are looking for an all around three row SUV, ideally suited for families with plenty of safety features and top of the range electronics, the 2017 Ford Explorer is the vehicle for you.
Driving the Explorer:
If its power you want, then the Ford Explorer will deliver. The base engine is a 290 HP V6, in the base XLT and Limited models you can opt for a fuel efficient 280 HP inline four cylinder. If you want more again, check out the 365 HP twin turbo V6 in the Sport and Platinum models.
The Ford Explorer pulls well and passes well; the tight suspension gives this large SUV impressive cornering ability. At high speed, the cabin is quiet, at any speed the seats are extremely comfortable and more than supportive enough for hour after hour driving with no fatigue.
Interior and exterior:
The Ford Explorer has three rows of seats, it can comfortably seat seven passengers; even the third row is roomy enough to accommodate adults. The middle or second row as standard is a bench seat with an available option of captain’s chairs, the same as up front for the driver and front passenger.
If you are looking to haul some serious cargo, fold the second and third row seats down and you have it.
Not a lot has changed in the basic silhouette but there have been some tasteful detail changes since last year. Front parking sensors and front view camera makes parking this large SUV crossover a breeze.
