http://drivencarreviews.com/ When the Ford Explorer debuted in 1990 it was quickly adopted by families eager to ditch their minivans. It helped to ignite America's love of the sport ute. It's been through a lot in the past 21 years, the 2011 model is a complete redo. In this extended length video, Tom Voelk takes a look at the the top-of-the-line Limited model.
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?
2011 Ford Explorer Review from Explorerforum.com
Russell (Nice59FordF100) from Explorerforum.com takes the all new 2011 Ford
Explorer for a road test and review of it's driving ability and technology
offered. Watch as the new Explorer compares against previous generations
of Explorers, and how well Ford hit the mark with the new model. This
review is made in conjunction with the Fun Hump Day Radio Show, the
internet's only Explorer-based audio podcast!
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.
Roadfly.com - 2011 Ford Explorer Review & Test Drive
The 2011 Ford Explorer takes a huge evolutionary leap, transitioning from
an old-school ladder-frame SUV to a modern, car-like crossover.
I found it a willing partner for the suburban life, with the best 3rd-row
stowing mechanism I could possibly have imagined, and decent fuel economy
as well (nearly 20mpg observed, EPA rated 17/23).
The chassis is rock-solid, and at high speed feels nearly as composed as
some European luxury-performance utes I've recently tested. The 3.5L V6
makes 283hp and 252 lb.-ft. of torque, but is handicapped by a 6-speed
"SelectShift" transmission that offers manual shift capability—-but only
via a tiny rocker switch on the shift knob itself.
It's a great start for Ford, with a few minor (and easily fixable)
glitches. The NAV system for example is very comprehensive, but equally
convoluted. A few tweaks here and there would produce a truly excellent

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
