2014 Ford Explorer Test Drive and Review

because of its smooth ride, tech bling, good cargo space and seating for 7.
Here's an average guy's honest review. Keep. pushing. PLAY!
2013 Chevy Equinox v Ford Explorer v Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Road Mashup AWD Tech Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The brand new 2013 Chevrolet Equinox and the Ford
Explorer and the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit Overland don't have a lot in
common. However all three of these vehicle have a very different approach
to powering all four wheels, in other words, they all have one form or
another of all-wheel-drive and terrain management technology. We thought it
would be interesting, informative and fun to try these three very different
AWD vehicles off-road in a real world test to see which one can best handle
our Colorado Mountain off-road terrain. In this battle of 4X4 people
haulers we take all three vehicles up our standard rugged Colorado trail to
see which one can make it all the way to the top. Check out another fun and
real world TFLcar Mashup test as we get wet, muddy and rocky in this
off-road AWD technology comparison and review.

More than just a "sport" badge, Ford's new Explorer with the 3.5 EcoBoost delivers some driving enjoyment from
behind the wheel with not much fuel penalty from the base 3.5 V6. Our only
complaints are a tight 3rd row and a hefty price tag, making it one of the
most expensive in the class. If you can swing the cost, you will feel as if
you are driving the most premium feeling family crossover in the segment.
2013 Ford Explorer Sport EcoBoost 4x4 Test Drive & Crossover SUV Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/ford/explorer/2013/sport-4x4/?id=32972 The Ford
Explorer started the SUV movement back in 1991 with a simple two box body
on frame design that brought utility to a whole new level. However things
have changed for the familiar Blue Oval badged hauler, and now the Explorer
is much more forgiving crossover than the SUV it once was thanks to 21st
century unibody construction, since it essentially rides on a car chassis.
However this hasn't stopped Ford from stiffening up the chassis,
shoehorning their big 3.5 Liter twin turbocharged EcoBoost V6 under the hood and sending power to
all four wheels to create the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport, which just so
happens to be the most expensive Explorer that money can buy, with a base
price of over $40k
With the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport 4x4, the company has gone all out. On the
outside the first thing you notice is the technical wrap meaning Ford
basically blacked everything out. The high gloss grille is combined with
low gloss mesh which sweep into the cool cut headlamps. The lower bumper
has a blacked out look with integrated fog lights. The Explorer Sport has
20-inch wheels wrapped in sticky rubber which are a half-inch wider than
the standard Explorer tires. On the side the sills, cargo bars, and side
mirrors are all blacked out. Everything looks great together and you know
the Explorer Sport means business.
The great looks are not where the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport ends; one look
under the hood reveals some serious power. The engine is a powerful and fun
3.5 liter V-6 EcoBoost motor. Output
is a hefty 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft. of
torque. The 6-speed automatic transmission has paddle shifters too. Fuel
Economy checks in at 17 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway.
The Ford Explorer Sport is actually a sporty vehicle on the road. The EcoBoost engine puts out more horsepower than the Porsche
Cayenne V-6. The Crossover SUV handles well and corners very flat thanks to
the extra engine brace, AWD system, and sticky wide tires.

What Camerons Car Reviews has to say about the 2013 Explorer: The Ford
Explorer also formerly known as the most popular SUV in America and
everybody and their Uncle Joe had one. However, times have changed rising
gas prices and a need for more fuel efficient crossovers are in higher
demand than it ever was before and this is exactly why the Ford Explorer
has transitioned itself to a crossover now. The current generation Explorer
is so much different from previous generations as in the old ones most
people could tell if it's and Explorer or not. On the exterior design of
the Explorer some may find it daring and quite and elegant design with LED
Tailamps being standard across all trims. On the interior you will find it
to be even more inviting with nice soft touch interior accents and a very
modern dashboard that can't be missed. Powertrains range from a 3.5 L V6 or
step up to a 3.5 L Twin turbo V6 and all
are made into a 6-Speed Automatic with all wheel drive being optional.
Compared to it's competitors you will find the Explorer to be more upscale
as far as the design flavor and technology goes, however with that said the
Explorer has a price to be paid with the base model starting at $29,100
running to the top model for $40,780 for the Sport trim. and dealer markups
are common. The new Explorer makes for a well rounded SUV that delivers in

Meet the often forgotten entry from Ford in the crossover SUV segment,
while it's looks may turn some folks away, we seriously suggest test
driving both it and the Explorer before making your final decision for a
family vehicle if you want to stay in the Ford lineup

2011 Ford Explorer off-road review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2011 Ford Explorer is a kinder, gentler
and more civilized SUV than the old one it replaces. It comes in a four
wheel drive model that uses electronics to help the car when the road turns
rough. But is it Colorado off-road worthy?
