Reviews for 2012 Ford Explorer

Overall Rating

4.4 out of 5 (9 reviews)

Wonderful vehicle at a great price!

This is a very comfortable vehicle that can seat 6 or 7. It has every possible option one could imagine. Heated and air conditioned seats. The safety features are the best. The sensors around the vehicle make it near impossible to have an accident. They warn you well before an accident. Back-up camera is a blessing as are the read sensors.


  • Technology and Entertainment: Has every possible option!
  • Interior Space: Plenty of room to seat 6 or 7 comfortably
  • Fuel Economy: Excellent fuel economy for a sizable vehicle! Almost the same as my former Sonata!

Smooth Ride for a SUV

If you love SUVs then this is the car for you. It's not too small like a crossover & it's not too big like a Tahoe. It's a smooth ride & is awesome for road trips. The only thing I do not like is the 3rd row seat takes away from the trunk space.


  • Interior Space: Everyone in the cabin has space even the 3rd row
  • Fuel Economy: Awesome for a SUV
  • Styling: I've loved this vehicle for 2 yrs & no other vehicle compared


  • Cargo Space: 3rd row takes away a ton of trunk space
  • Technology and Entertainment: The Microsoft Sync technology stalls at times
  • Visibility: Blind spots are pretty bad & the side view mirrors take some time to get used to
