Great little automatic 4x4 SUV
By tracycali on
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!
4WD automatic at the flip of a switch is great convenience. The styling still looks fresh.
The cladding around the bottom is overdone, but not terrible. holds up well to abuse :->.
Your Edmunds vehicle types only allow 5M models, but I believe most people probably have the automatic.
