After three trips to the Ford Service Dept since it was still under power train warranty, they had to splice into the wiring to fix. Drove it for 3 months and the transmition went out. Had to rebuild the transmition and we were only 3 months in on a 25000 mile vehicle.

I feel very safe in my big girl car. The wide wheel base makes it a very smooth ride. I love that it has great cargo room if I need it and both the 3rd AND 2nd row go down flat. I was surprised when car shopping that not all cars with 3rd rows have the 2nd row fold completely flat into the floor.

Generation Overview

The 2013 Ford Explorer comes in base, XLT, Limited and Sport trims. Even in its base form, the 2013 Ford Explorer comes well-equipped with cruise control, air conditioning, cloth seating, a power driver’s seat with six-way controls and a six-speaker audio system, among other features. Moving up to the XLT gives you access to Ford’s SYNC voice-activated connectivity system, along with upgraded cloth seats and a six-way power seat for the front passenger. The top-tier Limited trim features the MyFord Touch infotainment system, complete with an eight-inch touch screen display and two USB ports.

The 2013 Ford Explorer Sport shares most of the Limited’s features, but offers its own unique leather upholstery and other interior and exterior trim features. The Sport also adds distinctive 20-inch alloy wheels and a few performance-oriented tweaks, including bigger front brakes. For motivation, the Sport borrows the 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 found in the Taurus SHO, rated at 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.

Motivation for the other 2013 Ford Explorer trims includes the standard 3.5L V6, not to be mistaken with the twin-turbo EcoBoost engine. This naturally-aspirated powerplant produces 290 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. The optional 2.0L EcoBoost inline-four (available on 2WD models) produces 20 fewer hp, but more than makes up for the deficit with an impressive 270 lb-ft of torque and an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 23 mpg combined.2 

2Fuel economy figures are based on EPA estimates for when vehicle sold as new. Fuel economy may vary for reasons like driving conditions and vehicle history. Unless specified, figures are for vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission. See fueleconomy.gov.

Great amenities makes very comfortable for long travels.

Great drive power. This car take off from start very quickly and feels really good on the high way. Love my extras in it like the moon roof, sun roof and especially the reverse back up camera. Would have loved a little more leg room in middle row but overall its a good buy.

- Josseth, 2013 Ford Explorer

Great vehicle!

The Explorer has all the room we need, and rides like a car. It is low enough for my elderly mother to get in without any problem. The seats lay flat for cargo. The leather interior is very nice, and the seat heaters are definitely a plus in cold weather.

- Ms DeBree, 2013 Ford Explorer

Great family crossover option

This car has lots of great if built in features even at our base model. Third row is built to fit adults, car seats or kids with ease. The step in height is low enough to not need a step but large enough to be up with a good view. Compact enough to fit in small parking spots and maneuver in the city but large enough to handle our pasture roads and all our baby and kid gear.
