2002 Ford Explorer Sport Value 2WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
Visited edmunds.com almost daily reviewing entry level luxury cars and SUVs for about 4 months. The Explorer ST was the one vehicle I keep going back to. It is the most versatile and best value for my money. Love it and only sorry it took me so long to get it.
Well appointed premium package with a good choice of options to personalize the vehicle. The center back window lowers for good ventilation. Works well with the sunroof. Dials are easy to read and give all vital signs. Seperate climate control/sound system controls for rear guests.
Only minor, but it could have a little more width, especially the cargo bed. Again minor, but the driver and passenger low back bucket seats could be more confortable with a little more seat width.
