The Ford Explorer is a great vehicle for getting around town as well as traveling longer distances. It provides ample space for luggage and additional passengers. I especially like the comfort aspects of the vehicle. It is quiet and drives very smoothe.

When I turned the corner in the parking lot and saw this vehicle, it took my breath. the perfect color--Flame blue!! Sometimes a camera doesn't do a color justice. The interior was soft & everything worked!! Grandsons love the 3rd row seat w/easy access and the rear air conditioning. I love the SYNC for the phone & free trial of SiriusXM radio--especially on vacation.
The Eddie Bauer edition has many useful perks--but I miss a moon roof to help eliminate heat when you first start the car. I am getting better mpg's than the stat sheet predicts.
Quick and Effective
