Platinum

The list-topping Platinum trim keeps the Sport's turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 (365 hp and 360 lb.-ft. of torque) and all-wheel drive, but forgoes the sport-tuned suspension in favor of premium comfort and convenience features:

Overall Rating

4.8 out of 5 (19 reviews)

I’m in love with my car!

The car drives great, has just the right amount of tech features without feeling like I can’t use the car.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling:
  • Power:
  • Interior Space:

- Maddy Harvey, 2017 Ford Explorer

Wonder car with great features!

Explorer is roomy enough for traveling with let's and suit case and drive smoothly. So far the only con is the xlt doe not have inside night lighting but it is not a deal breaker. Handles well in icy conditions and gets good gas mileage for the type of suv. Wonderful car to grow into.

Pros

  • Interior Space:
  • Cabin Noise:
  • Technology and Entertainment:

- Chelsie Luna, 2017 Ford Explorer

Exactly Right for Me

Great road vehicle, excellent gas mileage, pulls my boat better than my pickup did, comfortable on long drives, and I love the rear view camera, when backing into a parking place and especially when putting the hitch ball directly under the trailer hitch. What a time saver that is!

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: When I got it the average MPG was 17.2, but now after front end alignment and new tires provided by Carmax (!) it gets 21.5 and is still going upl
  • Ride and Handling: I take long trips, the last was 1986 miles. Therefore comfort in the drivers seat and hardly any road noise matters, and this vehicle does that well.
  • Power: This vehicle has excellent power and acceleration when I need it.
