  • Safety

    Strong standard V6 engine, rugged styling, more maneuverable than a four-door Explorer.

  • Cons

    Not as versatile as a four-door Explorer, actual improvements in ride quality and interior quality are still an unknown.

I made a mistake getting

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)

My explorer ran so perfect I loved it. Never had a check engine light or anything! It got okay gas especially to be an SUV. Only thing I ever had to replace was rotors. I hear of some problems from them though so make sure to buy one in great condition and it will become your best friend.

Great little automatic 4x4 suv

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Ford Explorer Sport 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)

Bought in 2003 w/60000 miles on it. Now has 120,000 and still runs like new with only regular maintenance. We have family that live in the Sierra's at the end of a dirt and gravel road. This little 4x4 always makes it up there no problem with all-season tires; mud, snow, whatever. I added a class 3 bolt-on 4 point hitch receiver and it tows a 3500lb boat/trailer no problem. Just had dings removed and repainted same dark teal metallic and it looks like MONEY!

Vehicle: 2001 Ford Explorer Sport 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)

I bought this truck new in June of 2001. Since that time I have logged 158000 miles in it and it is still going strong and still used as a daily driver. I have changed the brake pads, tires, and a fuel sensor and of course have kept my oil changed every 3500 miles.
